Things I liked: I like the weight and feel. I shoot from sticks or a rest, so the weight isn't an issue for me. I've put about 300 shots through it, and I'm still learning the exact technique it likes, as far as hold.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. It's a superb rifle right out of the box!
What others should know: Mine likes JSB Jumbo Heavies, 18.13 grain. It shoots other pellets, but just okay. The heavy pellets are real tack drivers though. Quarter inch groups at 10 yards, indoors. The rifle is somewhat hold sensitive, so practice, practice, practice, and patience, will be the key to unlocking the magic of this fine piece of German craftsmanship.
Things I liked: I received this rifle three days ago and since the first shot out of the box ,with open sights, I'm convinced that this gun is on the same level of quality as the Diana - RWS 350 mag . The gun is as powerful or more than the 350 . Mine is .22 and it is making groups of 1/2 inch at 20 yards right out of the box with open sights. My gun has a polymer stock very solid and the contour, grip and balance is excellent. As for weight the gun comes in without scope a bit lighter than the 350 with wood stock. The price of this gun compared to the 350 is a buy. I've shot the gun with CPs 14.3 domes and they held thight groups , also tried the Gamo 15.43g wad cutters and they are functioned very well also. The open sights and trigger are plastic but of a very strong grade. Expect the gun to be stiff the first 100 or so shots ,after that you'll feel the break in. The Parrus is a German top of the line spring Powered air rifle- Walther hit the ball out of the park with this one.
Things I would have changed: Mine was a bit dry , but that can be expected from new guns. Pyramyd should include the checkup free of cost in this level of quality guns.
What others should know: This is a hunting rifle,not an all day plinker. If you want a plinker or for target practice buy a Diana 34 TO6 trigger in .177. The Parrus is a heavy hitter ,but it requires 40 maybe 50 pounds of cocking effort, so don't buy this for a kid or if you have physical problems in your arms. As for scope I installed an old Ruger 4x32 that I had lying around and to my surprise it's functioning excellent with this rifle : 1/2 inch groups at 20 yards and hits 2x2 inch targets at 40 yards- I don't expect the scope to last long on this mag , but it's shooting great now. These type of mag guns eat scopes. I wouldn't advise to buy this gun in .177 it had to much power for that caliber, but that's open to debate depending on the weight of the pellets. For me .22 is the way to go if you have hunting or pest control on your mind. Expect 24fp of power with 14 to 18 grain pellets, JSBs or CPs.
Things I liked: Accuracy.This is one accurate gun.I have put 500 JSB 15.89 down the barrel plus FTT,CP,Polymags and Terminaters.It does not appear pellet fussy.Nice and smooth cocking.Breaking open the gun can be difficult at first,but it soon smooths out.I got the synthetic stock over the wood.The balance is excellent.The trigger is great ,nice and wide,with a great two stage that breaks crisply.
Things I would have changed: The blueing could be improved.That is why l did not give all five stars
What others should know: The breech seal and lock up are first class.well worth the price.You might need a new back stop by the time you have fired a couple of tins of pellets.This air gun really packs a punch.

Out of the Walther parrus magnum and the gamo swarm magnum witch is the better rifle
I would go for the Parrus.
Do these rifles have the "Stopshox" anti recoil as indicated they would in the 2016 shot show?
No, I don't believe the walther line does. I think that is just the Umarex branded guns
How accurate is it?
Billy. The shooter has to aim the gun? Really? Thanks for making me laugh. Stay safe.
Got an answer from the Consumer Services Tech at Umarex on this question. "The Parrus, like most other air guns is more dependent upon the shooter for its accuracy than the gun itself. The LGV does have a vibration dampening system that the Parrus does not, but you should be able to shoot the Parrus very close, if not as well as the LGV."
