The Walther Parrus air rifle is a powerful, single-shot breakbarrel air rifle with reliable magnum velocity. This spring-piston powered rifle is the next generation of the popular Terrus model, and it's steady cocking mechanism delivers muzzle energy of up to 22 foot pounds making it ideal for small game hunting. The .177 caliber version is capable of delivering pellets at up to 1300 feet per second, while the .22 caliber sends pellets at 1000 fps. The Parrus is equipped with an adjustable, metal rear sight and a TruGlo fiber optic front sight to help get you on target quickly. The 1/2" UNF threaded muzzle is popular with European shooters for its silenced recreational shooting. And adding to the list of features is the XT Trigger with its adjustable first-stage travel. The gun is ready for a scope with the 11mm dovetail rail, and it has a rubber recoil pad adding to its comfort. The ergonomic synthetic stock has Walther's Hi-Grip texturing for added grip. Right out of the box this powerful springer will catch your eye and offer hours of fun shooting.

Established firearms company. Great price Well contoured and solid polymer stock, with but pad. Good balance. Accurate with the right pellets (H&N Barracuda Extreme). Excellent fitment and lines. Fiber optic sights are high performance, but I have utilized the dovetail scope mount. Solid metal reciever and barrel. Automatic tang mounted safety is easy to accuate. Solid targer performer and excellent hunter.Things I would have changed:
Trigger needs attention. Consider reducing weight, it is a heavy air rifle.What others should know:
Much like all the reviews already say; The rifle is heavy and hard to cock. Trigger is not conducive to accuracy. If you can see past those minor issues, its a fantastic rifle for the price. Sends pellets with authority. Perfect for pest control and plinking. I would recommend this rifle to mature and veteran shooters, probably not for children or strength challenged people.
In the initial break in of about 150 pellets, I really liked the balance and palm swell of the synthetic stock. It really is a Black Beauty, the bluing is a deep luster of blue-black finish. The Parrus is a beefy rifle at first, but got lighter and easily wielded as the day progressed in bench rest and of hand trials as I got used to it. The stock seems shinier on the top half where the receiver sits, and well proportioned palmswell whereby cradling the rifle is in perfect balance, the stock is slightly duller on the under belly being a little more rough, it makes sense since it is bench rested or carried. Cocking got easier within the first hour, not wanting to lube or scope it until after the initial trial of various pellets. I just wanted to see want it could do. I like the overall build quality of the rifle and for the price point that it is, if nothing goes wrong, is a Great Value, the best value from Pyramyd Air. Customer service was awesome as was the delivery time of 6 days.Things I would have changed:
The Parrus is configured in synthetic, designed to be a work horse, it's very practical. I would change the front & rear sights to a solid beefier aftermarket metal with bright dots like those on a Glock. Plastic illuminated pieces detract from the beauty of the Parrus. I would change the receiver end cap from a 2 piece plastic cap to all metal where the almost perfect safety is, it should be metal as I wish the trigger guard were metal. I didn't realize the rifle is 1300fps rated, Wow Wheee!! I thought how could I carry this well balanced long rifle in the field comfortably? What sling & QD hardware could be used? The trigger face & crisp pull is almost perfect, I wouldn't change it till I get to know her better. Because it's a magnum I'd change the warranty to limited lifetime and repair. I heard tell they aren't gonna make these .177's anymore, if that's true, I have a nice piece of the pie (rumors?) Awesome Nice Gun. Customer service is HiTech & Professional in comparison to othersWhat others should know:
Break-in period will be long to mellow out the Parrus, I can only see it getting better as it sets ages. Within the first 15-40 .177 pellets, dieseling occurred. Going to a heavier 10.4 grain diabolo helped quiet and slowed the pellets from going supersonic like a 22LR. A moderator would help keep the bark down, it would need to match the recoil and beefiness of the Parrus. A scope would need to be beefy to match the fast clean shot cycle. Man what a nice action, it is hard to cock at first, 'got easier though. The gun is a laser 35meters or under, haven't tried it farther, seems silly beyond 40meters. It's a springer, you need to hold it like a springer and not choke hold it to shoot. Why would Walther build a 1/2" UNF if there ain't a matching moderator to survive the gun? You will definitely receive your appreciated value. My first time customer service and delivery was stellar, as was my advisor Carter D. Ontario Canada. PJ Clark fr: DonnyFL recommended P.A. Glad I listened.
