Walther Parrus air rifle
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 a micro-adjustable open rear sight and a hooded 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 attractive hardwood stock has subtle checkering for added grip. Right out of the box this powerful springer will catch your eye and offer hours of fun shooting.

Things I liked: I shy away from magnum springers and thought for a magnum springer the Terrus I already have is ACCURATE and I thought powerful enough! However, this big brother to the Terrus is even better though it is much longer and larger in piston chamber diameter. Cocking is long and easy, there is the sound of a huge spring being compressed until lock. Trigger is outstanding-light and crisp! The Beech Wood is actually darker and more grained than the Terrus I have. I am surprised such velocity and accuracy go together. I am using CP's 10.5gr. Target/Silhouette Heavy. I use the same pellets now in the FWB Sport as well. The Walther Parrus for the price is a steal--so is the Terrus!
Things I would have changed: Rear sight on my Parrus is useless--it is too loose and wiggles in all directions like a loose helicopter never able to land in the zone. I got those off right away (I read where others have had "accuracy problems" with their Parrus's and I think the problem is simply the rear sight) and put a Leupold 2.5-8X 32mm VARXIII; and ADDED another for WIDE field: Nikon Monarch 1.5-4.5X UCC 20mm. The gun shoots extremely well with BOTH scopes interchanging!
What others should know: This gun is solidly built with essentially a lifetime warranty by Walther to the original owner--how can you go wrong with $250?
Things I liked: The Parrus be it in 22 or 177 is powerful and accurate rifle- accuracy depends of course on finding the right pellet. Ive had the Parrus in 22 for over a year and I just bought the 177 version with wood stock in 177. I have had luck in both as to finding the right pellet, the 22 shoots the CP 14.3 very well and the 177 is doing excellent with the CP 10.5 and the 7.9s Hollowpoints . Both rifles are super magnums built with German quality. The trigger is not a TO6 trigger like the Diana but its not a bad or cheap trigger, it gets smoother with use- it has an adjustment screw but Im not sure if it does much good. The truth is that both my Parrus triggers break a bit stiff but very precisely. On both rifles I can get groups of 3/8 inch at 20 yardas and hit 2x2 inch metal plates at 40 to 50 yards easily. Both rifles are hunting rifles and if you are not ready to do the exercise that it takes to cock these rifles do not buy them with the idea that they are for plinking.
Things I would have changed: I would like to find a video or review that explains how to disassemble and reassemble these rifles. They are not easy to work on as the Diana / RWS 350s. I had my Parrus 22 tuned by a professional and I had him put in a 135 -40 coil spring from Vortek- the rifle shoots superbly. I would have liked to do the job myself but as I said I havent found instructions or videos on this matter- so caveat on that point.
What others should know: My Parrus 22 shoots the 14.3s at 939 FPS thats close to 30 foot pounds energy. I havent cronographed the 177 but it is also a powerhouse due to the fact that the both have a 130-42 coil spring. Important : on both 177 and 22 Parrus rifles the open sights do not work well as in the Diana rifles. They both shoot very well with the CenterPoint 3-9x33 scopes and double mounts will work ok .
Things I liked: Once broke in shot after the same.It balances well and doesnt feel as heavy as it is.
Things I would have changed: make it in a 25 cal.
What others should know: This gun is the real deal for the price you wont find a more expensive any better.

will hatsan stripper fit the parrus
What pellets provide the highest muzzle velocity? What pellets provide the highest degree of accuracy?
Not sure if you have already bought this rifle, and checked on this yourself, but I can tell you, that with the 18.13 JSB, I am getting a few feet per second shy of 25 fpe!
How is the front sight and plastic shroud attached? Is there any way to remove it like the Terrus dovetail front sight?
