Lgu

A beautiful gun to shoot and excellent quality. I wouldn't like to carry it round fields for a day but that's not what I bought it for. I bought it two weeks ago. First impressions are good. Well pleased and worth what I paid for it

Pros
Shoots straight from the box once zeroed. Superb quality and a pleasure to shoot. One of the smoothest trigger actions I've used. The balance is excellent.
Cons
Yes its heavy but I'm not sure that it's such a disadvantage. I'm not even bothered by the rubber o rings on the lever.

german gem

After 20 plus years away from air rifles I decided to dip back in and introduce my son to a practical, physical sport that we can compete with each other on level terms. Its proved to be a good move..he loves it!..First purchase was a HW-95. Purchased on the basis of good reviews and its medium weight for my son ( 12 yrs old) to be able to handle its proven reliable and a good standard to practise with down at the range. I felt a second rifle would be a good idea..partly because my poor middle aged eye sight requires the scope to be adjusted differently to my sons requirements..taking turns with one rifle was becoming a bind...Enter the LGU...I wont descibe the rifle in detail..if are reading this review you will already have read others describing all...but needless to say when you first pick this rifle up you realise you have nice piece of kit in your hands..I had an issue with the first rifle I was supplied with..when the grease/oil that the rifles action is covered in for shipping was wiped off..close up the action had bite marks in the metal at the base of the barrel and just forward of the breach. It looked like during manufacture the action had been worked on while held in a vice or simular. The bluing had taken place after so making my case to the retailer was an eady affair and a replacement rifle provided. If you intend buying an LGU make sure you inspect the finish on stock and action carefully..I have read elsewhere on the net about quality control problems with the LGV/LGU. In use rifle is a joy to use..cocking action smooth..trigger unit is long in the first stage but the second stage breaks predictably every time. I shoot from inside my hut at the bottom of the garden towards my house..35 yards..I still need lots of practice. Crap eyesight and less than steady hands make for challenging shooting. But I can produce five shot groups that will fit under a 2 pence coin using a Hawke 4-16x50 scope.. my son can put pellet on pellet :-)

Pros
A lot of rifle for a little money
accuracy is increadible for a springer
Solid german engineering
Its weight is a pro not a con
sets a new standard for dpring powered rifles
Cons
Quality control issues
weight could be a problem for young or lady shooters

Walther LGU .177

Very impressed with this rifle I have used half a tin of H&N FTT & half a tin of Air Arms fields and yet to see a flyer.
I only shoot targets at 20 meters due to the length of my garden & I am getting 10 shots under a 5p coin.

Pros
Accuracy straight out of the box
Cheaper than 97 & TX
Very smooth cocking and firing
Cons
Heavy
First stage travel is too long

Walther LGU- PCP accuracy from a high tech springer!

on first sight I am very very happy, it looks like a TX200, no two ways about it, it`s a rip off (looks wise) on the Air Arms & HW77!
the beech stock has a beautiful dark stain flawlessly applied to it. the blueing is superb too, the fit of the woodwork to the metal is breathtaking, superb.
once in hand I`m shocked, all I heard & read was the weight issue of this & it`s sister the LGV, well, it`s lighter than MANY rifles out there, I`m no giant at 5`8" & I can manage it`s weight just fine! it`s not a featherweight either though!
the cocking action is smooooth!
this is my first experience of an anti bear trap & I discover you`ve to depress the button to return the lever after cocking, meaning you need to use both hands to cock, load & return the lever, so, a `knack` must be acquired to load the rifle quickly.
the safety is automatic, ambidextrious & to be expected on any modern gun these days!
I immediately fitted a threaded barrel extension (not included) & a whisper silencer, the gun is now no noisier than my silenced AA S200, astonishing for a springer!
my Nikko Sterling 4-12x50ao sat on it`s rails quickly & the front lens cleared the rear tube by only a hairs width, some adhesive foam strip on the bottom half of my mounts will sort this later, as will a pin to fit into the anti creep holes & rear mount, later dudes, I`m having too much fun right now!
the trigger first stage is it`s first let down, it`s far too long, but, I prefer to simply get used to my equipment before the spanners & allen keys see light of day, so, I`ve been simply squeezing the 1st stage back until I reach the second, then safety off & squeeze the shot off, & what a shock those shots have been so far, recoil is there all right, but it`s slight & doesn`t affect the accuracy at all, it`s as if the pellet has left before it makes itself felt?
the pellet then arrives at the target right where I`d been aiming a la pcp, but with a little more life to the shooting experience, -perfect!
that`ll stifle all those `pcp`s are lifeless ergo rubbish- nae sayers` then! this gun shoots just like one, trust me.
the HW97 & AAtx200 on which this gun is based are considerably more expensive new, another plus point for the Walther.
mines is in .177 & I couldn`t be happier so far, time will tell if the technology & build quality stand up to the test of time, I hope they do, I love this rifle. I think you will too!

Pros
looks
build quality/ fit & finish
internal technology
accuracy
anti bear trap
Cons
weight
the loading procedure can be a bit fiddly at first
trigger first stage is way too long
underlever can shift sideways slightly, on return to it`s seat

The 97 is dead long live the LGU

Ok, so having brought one of these today I had to come on here and write this.

Don't um and agh trawling forums for the TX / 97k / Pro Sport argument, just buy the LGU.

I've owned a TX200 HC, shot a friends pro sport regularly, played with a TX200 and finally owned the 97k.

I preferred the TX200 HC out of these, followed by the Pro Sport. The std TX200 is good, with the increase swept volume making it easier to cock, but it doesn't match the other two.

But frankly the 97k is a dog. Wake up Weihrach, the days of selling air rifles that have rough grating internals are over.

Please don't listen to some air rifle know it all try and defend the 97k by carting on about tuning air rifles. Just buy the LGU and shoot it, job done.

I cannot believe how well this thing cocks, this is how a decent springer should be. Wake up, we don't need air rifle spring gun tuning anymore!

As for accuracy I've been shooting at 2mm targets, semi bench rested indoors at 20yds this afternoon, and putting 3 shot groups on them using Air Arms Field 4.52 (when I didn't have the occasional brain fart).

Shoot it in? Why it groups straight out the box?

This rifle is incredible, buy it, shoot it, hav fun, be glad u didn't buy the 97k.

Pros
Cocks like a dream
Trigger weight can be reduced sufficiently
Weighty piece of kit?
Cons
Sausage finger sized trigger is butt ugly
(But feels sweet in use)
No adjustable butt pad
Weighty piece of kit?

Walther LGU

Well packaged,deep rich bluing very solid construction,nice stock shape. Put a new MTC mamba on it zeroed in three shots. And was grouping pellets touching each other at 30 yards straight from the box. Will try various pellets to see if its fussy. Has a nice smooth firing cycle. Far better than 97 or 77 HW and ive owned a few of these.
Cannot fault it for the price.
Go and get one you will not be disappointed. This is a keeper and will now render my HWs
unused.

Pros
Accurate.
Very good value.
Excellent build Quality
Cons
None that i can see, may be a little heavy for some. But i like the weight.
