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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I doubt it, the weight difference between wood and synthetic is marginal, Especially when you are talking about that kind of weight!
    I would imagine it would be a great bench rest rifle or target shooting gun if you have the muscle to keep her steady but I wouldn't be wanting to lug it around the fields!

    I've hunted with a Hw77 rifle on and off for many years, the extra weight helps steady's the shot but also slows down your approach to rushing around your shoot.

    Had Walther gone the fixed barrel route, regardless of weight, they would have got my attention, I would still like to try out the LGV though, what airgunner wouldn't.

    It's being put through its paces as we speak I'm mighty impressed! I've got the Ultra version - open sights are brilliant good to see this gun is a makeup of all the best spring guns into one! My Prosport is deadly accurate so is this!!

    I can put the LGV's weight into perspective.. my Theoben Evo K is only 1kg lighter so would be like using it with a large bag of sugar stuck onto it lol.

    That can only help when out in the field hunting, that along a steadying heavy weight.

    One thought though, how big is the LGV to a Hw80 ?

    not sure, gotta be a similar size though its a fairly long rifle....

    the synthetic stocked challenger is 3.8kg, enough to make a difference! all variants come with "ultra" option which is the barrel weight and truglo sights as far as i can see?

    Boy that looks ugly, but a Mattw delrin silencer made to match the size of the muzzle weight, would look good, it would not have to be that long either, 100mm should be about right ?

    Don't need a silencer!! I've taken out 10 rabbits and several pigeon. Terry Doe has been using for nearly a month no issues either.

    I cant see why Walther would have gone for a design to include a 1/2 unf thread on all LGV models, if they didn't expect shooters to fit a mod.

    You don't want to fit a silencer/mod or are you trying to say, theres no muzzle blast from this rifle ?

    As the gun is relatively quiet due to precision engineering system inside. But us Brits would still feel the need to put a silencer on so they put unf mainly to accommodate uk market. It is a target gun especially the ultra like the HW98 by Weihrauch the weight isn't an issue with me I'm used to using big heavy guns. Infact a light gun I can't get on with struggle with standing shots or kneelers with my contour xl.

    I've had an adjustable muzzle break fitted to my LGV as its mainly used for ft. But I shoot several permissions where we have hides and can comfortably take quarry supported standing or bench rest through camo hide blind.

    there is still a crack off the muzzle but not as loud as my .22 tx200.

    With a silencer, the lgv is quiet! Ive got a little stumpy silencer, may try it on and get a pic :)
