1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I got this recently so only had about 20 shots ,i mentioned on another thread that the first shot was loud & plenty of smoke it settled a little after but the odour was still there.Tony on the other side was after a pic of the piston so here it is.
    A mate told me the spring ends were cut off like HW did a while back,he wasn't wrong.

    ahha...great pics...

    so the spring needs finishing, get some finishline bike grease to grease it all up (does not burn) and maybe add 2mm preload to the rear guide.

    off chance you weighed the piston?

    I was about to weigh the piston but my digital set had a wobley will try again hopefully.The action itself is nice & smooth as is the cocking stroke.The lube is a bit naff not like my Ultra.Same diameter spring as LGV but just cropped & left rough, done for our market probably.
    The Inspectors stamp on stock states March 13 ,so may be for stock alone? or its been waiting a while for shipping.

    So none rotating piston, 30mm seal with no flow enhancer on the face...

    I was expecting an LGV piston with 30mm nose and a 30mm version of the LGV seal, that way the piston would have rotated...if i was to get one this is the mod I would do ;)

    Once tidied up its actually not a bar rifle...for the money a lot of rifle ;)

    The plastic Anti vibe plate sits on the springs in the stock,yes it has an articulated link.
    Although the main spring is about a coil longer in length to the LGV it has less coils in total just not wound as tight.

    Fancy a company of Walther's standing and reputation sending out a rifle with such a bloody awful spring in it,it's the sought of spring one might expect to find in a bottom of the range chinese offering.It's a simple enough job to the find the correct length of spring and number of coils to make the gun comply with our power limit and then get a batch made.Talk about spoiling the ship for a happeth of tar.

    It is a shame Walther let this happen with the springs when its so easy to get the correct spec in the first place.It seems like they rushed to get some in to the UK & didn't bother finishing the springs after cropping.
    The build quality is very good overall no burrs or rough spots to address & blueing is well finished just let down by the spring.

    Good work - ta for sharing your findings :)

    I've not got anything to contribute really; other than to say that I'd be interested to know the piston mass if you have it apart again in the near future ;)

    Bit of a surprise to me as well Tony. :confused:

    Logically the cheapest way of doing things would have been to just change from the head and seal used on the LGV piston, Walther could have even used a second LGV rear bearing behind the seal as a front bearing. :)

    Very strange that they went with a completely new none rotating piston assembly --- there must be a good reason for this but I can't think of one. :confused:





    All the best Mick

    Probably down to manufacturing costs bearing in mind that the rifle would be cheaper still if it came minus the scope

    I know what you're saying Patrick

    Though as the LGV piston body is made in three pieces I'd have thought a new piston head and seal fitted to the LGV piston body and rod would be cheaper than a new piston, piston seal, spring and cocking link ?




    all the best Mick

    Product tier demarcation. If they gave you all the LGV goodies, there's no need to buy an LGV.

    I'd have thought the demarcation between 25mm and 30mm cylinders would have been enough to seperately the two different models ?


    all the best Mick
