Walther MaximaThor air rifle
The Walther MaximaThor PCP air rifle is built for hunting impact and incorporates the proven expertise of Walther's engineers. This multi-shot powerhouse delivers up to 44 foot pounds of energy per shot in .22 caliber, at velocities of 1,260 fps. More than enough to take care of your varmint hunting needs!
The MaximaThor features a Lothar Walther barrel with 1/2-inch UNF threads for adding a silencer, and an 8-round rotary magazine that delivers pellets efficiently into the barrel. This results in very precise long range shooting with only a slight reduction in speed. The reservoir incorporates a pressure gauge for your convenience.
The beautifully crafted hardwood Minelli stock has a checkered grip and forearm, and an ambidextrous cheekpiece that fits comfortably against your cheek. The soft recoil pad is an added bonus for shooting comfort, and the adjustable match trigger is the icing on the cake!

Things I liked: Beautiful craftmanship. This rifle is very well made, the bluing is top quality, the stock is graceful. Power. This rifle puts out some serious power. It .25 it packs a punch. The trigger is smooth, I still haven't played with adjustments, but right out of the box it is smooth. it does not break quite a crisp as I like, but I am sure some adjustment will fix this. The safety is also really easy to use. Most air guns have somewhat awkward or annoying safeties, but this one is very well made and easy to operate.
Things I would have changed: add a shroud. Can't all of the manufacturer's agree on a single sized fill probe. This rifle has yet another size fill probe. It would be nice to either be a foster fitting or standardized fill probe.
What others should know: So far accuracy seems good, but I need to get tests done at 25 and 50 yards to be able to comment for sure. Spare magazines are so far impossible to get. I contacted Umarex directly and they are out of stock and cannot back order them. Eventually I hope extra magazines will be available, but not now. The barrel is threaded 1/2 x 20 so adding a after market shroud or if you are lucky enough to live in a free state where you can own suppressors that would be a nice addition. I own a few airguns including most of the major manufacturers M-rods, hatsan, Kral, air force, Anschutz, Feinwerkbau and others and this rifle so far has the best bluing of any of them. Also fit and finish is immaculate too. The other airguns I have all shoot and have their plusses, etc. but this gun so far is one of the most classy and refined, especially for its price point. This is definitely a sleeper as it is nowhere near as popular as Mrods or others, but it gets my thumbs up.
Things I liked: I was in the market for a quality 25 caliber air rifle capable of hunting small to medium game. After researching all my options, I came across the Walther MaximaThor 25 caliber. After receiving my air rifle, it was love at first glance. The rifle looked sleek as a greyhound and shouldered as quickly. The rifle came with a beautiful Minelli stock. The stock gave the rifle perfect balance and the deep checkering provided an excellent grip for those warm days. The rifle has a smooth and solid bolt action, not flimsy as some of the bolt actions out there. The metal rotary magazine comes in and out as smoothly as the bolt action.The trigger is adjustable and comes out of the box set at 3 lbs, which I find perfect for hunting. As far as accuracy, I put pellets through the same hole at over 60 yards.This airgun comes with a Lothar Walther barrel and has a threaded capped end making it easy to add a suppressor.
Things I would have changed: As far as the airgun nothing but there should be more then one pellet magazine with this airgun
What others should know: As power goes, Im getting a reading over 900 fps from my chrony with a 28 grain pellet for over 20 shots. I am surprised that this air rifle has not been noticed by more airgunners. It is structurally solid and dependable. I have paid over twice the amount for air guns privately built that are of the same quality as the MaximaThor.
Things I liked: I received a maximathor in January 2018 in .25 caliber. It initially functioned well and I was very pleased with the fit and finish. However it was very heavy and so loud I could not shoot it in my backyard. An fx moderator did little to reduce the sound. It stopped functioning in April and would not cock. It blew out its chamber sealing o ring about a month before the cocking failure. I contacted Umarex for warranty work and was given incorrect shipping information resulting in my removing the air cylinder at their instruction and later having to send the cylinder at an additional $35.00 shipping cost. Umarex didn't have parts and I am still waiting for the parts from Germany. My wait time as of 5/26/18 is six weeks and no end in sight. The gun should not have failed in the first 60 days as it did.
Things I would have changed: I would not buy another Walther air gun. I would not buy another Umarex product because their warranties are effectively non existent(costly shipping charges for obvious manufacturers defects, and failure to have parts for their products on hand). I chose this gun in large part because it was a German product--that was a mistake because it did not have German reputed quality. I have many other air guns including 2 marauders that have not failed to function flawlessly and be relatively light weight and very accurate, and one Kral puncher breaker that has worked well
What others should know: I am pleased with Pyramyd's sale of the gun, but I knew going in they wouldn't be servicing it--Umarex would be. I have dealt with Air Venturie before and they have always been excellent in their service. I would recommend that others not buy products to be serviced by Umarex and choose those .products to be serviced by Air Ventuie.

Does this gun come with a moderator? Thanks
I'd love to buy this gun, but I can't find anywhere on the net where .25 cal. extra magazines can be found for sale? I won't own a gun that has only one magazine to depend on! Can anyone tell me where I can get one in .25 caliber? I know that plastic mags for .177 cal. and .22 ca. are available?
I found factory Mags and fill probs on E Bay UK (Archery Equipe) is the store. After looking all over in the us with no luck I found factory alloy mags for .17, .22 and .25 and probes in of the uk. youll have to wright them and ask to have the items shipped to you in the states, (I paid 10.00 US to to Oregon) I had no problem and now have spare factory alloy mags and an extra fill probe.
You could contact Umarex at 479-646-4210 and ask for the service department.
I bought this air rifle with .22 cal. Now I would like to have .25 cal. Is it Ok to change the barrel?
That could void the warranty if you disassemble the rifle (just saying ). Call 479-646-4210 and inquire?
