If you're interested in competing in field target or do some hunting but don't want to break the bank, the Walther LGU spring-piston air rifle deserves your full attention!

It has all the features you want and none of the ones you don't. For instance, the vibration-reduction system is a boon to those who want to spend time aiming, shooting and hitting targets and NOT spend time listening to a buzz saw in the rifle after every shot! It's a sm-o-o-o-o-th shooter!

How about a trigger that lets you determine the pull weight and travel? Lots of manufacturers say their sporting rifle triggers are adjustable, but most mean only the first-stage travel is adjustable. But on the Walther LGU, the pull weight can also be adjusted. It adapts to you -- not the other way around.

With Walther's proven Super Silent Technology, your gun won't be as prone to disturb your neighbors, spook any critters you're trying to dispatch or deliver that loud crack so common in many of today's powerful air rifles.

This air rifle is beautifully executed and will be the pride of your gun vault.


(In Pyramyd AIR testing, the 11.9 grain RWS Hobby pellet shot at 750 fps.  14.66 grain H&N Field Target Trophy pelelt shot at 650 fps.)

Things I liked:

Near PCP accuracy. Very hold insensitive and easily shot off a pillow. As delivered, the first stage is very, very long. Replaced the slot head screw in the trigger with a longer one and readjusted to minimize sear engagement. Adjusted like this, the first stage will not reset if you decide not to take the shot. Mine loves Crosman CPL 7.9 grain, H&N FTT 8.64 grain 4.52 head, and Air Arms 8.4 grain 4.52 head. By far less hold sensitive than my Air Arms TX200 Mk3 in .177 and equal to the HW97k .177 which I also have.

Things I would have changed:

The European metal trigger would be a better option than the plastic trigger.

Things I would have changed:

Things I liked:

I gave accuracy a 3-star until I can determine the accuracy of my LGU. I purchased a .177 caliber. The gun weight a little heavier than Spec. The craftsmanship is excellent. The gun looks like a work of art. My LGU shoots hard. My chrony showed an average of 916 fps using JSB Exact 8.4g which comes out to 15.65 ft-Lbs. This feature is a plus in competition. Cocking is surprisingly less for a gun with this much power. I didn't measure it using a scale but just by the feel of it. It cocks significantly easier than my Diana 34 and HW97K. If this gun weighs a couple of pounds less, it will be a great all day Plinker. When fire, gun doesn't jump and very little recoil which surprised me for a spring gun that shoots this hard. Maybe the fact that it is slightly muzzle heavy and weight 9.75 Lbs helped.

Things I would have changed:

I cannot feel where the trigger breaks. Perhaps someone can help. Firing cycle is not as smooth as what some reviewers said. There is no thump like the TX200. Even my Diana 34 has a smoother firing cycle. Although LGUs firing cycle has no twang, it does have significant vibration. It vibrates as hard as my HW35, and my HW35 does NOT have Walther's Vibration-reduction technology and my HW35 shoots just slightly under 13 ft-Lbs and this LGU shoots at 15.65 ft-Lbs. I purchased this gun hoping that I can shoot it in my backyard without alerting my neighbors. It is not backyard friendly. The report is significant even when I fire the LGU at arms length. I am disappointed that the Walther's Super Silent Technology didn't work well. It is not as loud as my Diana 34, about the same loudness as my HW35. I was hoping to do accuracy testing in my backyard. I hate the long drive to the firing range.

What others should know:

If this gun is accurate, it will be a great competition spring gun, better than my old HW97K and even the TX200 Mk3 that I once borrowed.

    What is the LOP of this rifle?

    • Paul from USA answered:

      The length of pull is 14 1/2 inches.

  • Dan from USA asked:

    I considering the Walther LGU rifle, mainly due to its low decibel rating. Im practice shooting in an indoor environment. Does the USA version of this rifle have the capability of a silencer? If so, which silencer is recommended? And can it be purchased in Illinois, USA?

    • AngryBuddha from USA answered:

      My LGU is loud. When I purchased it, I was hoping for a thump but it is as loud as my HW35, NOT backyard friendly.

    • Billy from USA answered:

      No, no silencer available for this. You don't really need one, this is a very quiet rifle. Mine just makes a thump about the same volume as the pellet hitting the target.

    • Paul from USA answered:

      On spring rifles most of the noise that you hear is caused by the spring and piston moving,not air exiting the barrel.The air exiting the barrel is not much more then a puff of air by the time the pellet leaves the barrel.

  • Ed from USA asked:

    Is/will this rifle be available with a walnut stock?

    • Mark from USA answered:

      no plans for that
