At the 2012 IWA show in Nurenburg, Germany, AOA staff was invited into the Walther private airgun range to test a new ground-breaking spring piston rifle and offer our response. The rifle tested was as smooth and quiet as any custom tuned springer we have ever previously had the pleasure of shooting. With zero vibration and almost no recoil the rifle printed precharged pneumatic size groups with almost no noise. The rifle was the new Walther LGV Ultra. Charged with the task of making the finest spring piston rifle in the world, the Walther design staff went to work. After over two years in development the Walter staff has met the challenge and produced the all new Walther LGV. Factory standard features like synthetic piston bearings at the front and rear of the piston. Noise and vibration eliminating spring guide. Computer designed match grade fully adjustable trigger block, Ergonomic safety position at the rear of the receiver. Beautifully polished and blued action with standard and target stock options. The breech lock up system provides rigidity for accuracy as good as any fixed barrel spring piston gun. The LGV Competition Ultra sports a fully adj cheek piece for proper eye alignment with the fiber optic open sights. The receiver is of course grooved for scope use. The forend of the stock has finger cuts for a comfortable hand position and the pistol grip has cut checkering for a no slip hold. The LGV Master has all metal front and rear sights and included a muzzle weight for steady hold that is threaded to accept a sound suppressor where legal. The new LGV is sure to be the benchmark for spring piston sporting and target rifles to come.
