This rifle is boring to shoot.  Everything is perfect.  No recoil, stacks pellets, ultra quiet, perfect trigger, zero twang.  I bet it will kill squirrels out to 20 yds with a scope, I think I could aim for and hit them in the eye at that distance.  I think the only flaws on this rifle are no safety and it isn't really pretty, but it is overbuilt and impressive in person.

Double vision?  No.  Someone (J Woodcock) made me an offer I couldn't refuse.  Truth known, were I ever to sell my Walther LGR-Universal (never happen), it would have to be listed as "some rust" (OK, she's in her late 20's, but she is still a looker).  On the other hand, the second Walther LGR (I coveted it and now it is mine) you see here not only has absolutely gorgeous striping on the German walnut, it has (had) an action that is 99%, maybe 100% like it was new in a box.  "Thou art fair!  There is no blemish on thee."  

Well, in the spirit of brotherly love, the near 100% action is now in its new left-hand Universal home, and "some rust" action is snuggled into the gorgeous (but right-hand) German walnut.  Also, my brother Jerry seems to think he can shoot off-hand, and it may be so, but he is going to have to show me.  He will soon have a new / used Walther LGR to test his hypothesis, heads up with his kid brother.  True, Jerry, there are some external blemishes on the old girl, but beauty is only skin deep.  And you are hereby warned that the Walther you will be getting will be addictive.  Once you pull the trigger on the Walther action and send a few pellets down range, it will be extremely difficult to ever go back to a lesser airgun.

Very pretty looking pair there, Tommy ... makes me homesick for my old LGR.   Mind you it was getting to be too much of a handful for me towards the end - a couple of years or so ago - almost 11 pounds puts a fair bit of strain on an old mans' arms and back muscles these days.   Mine had a "blonde" stock though - not that "chintzy" walnut finish - lol !

Hey Mick, the LGR will be going to my brother, after the action swap.  Mine is the lefty LGR-U.  Being over 6' tall, mine is set up to shoot downhill, making it lighter, though (LOL).

Tommy, I'm pretty sure I hate you, unless you adopt ME as your brother and send me that Walther :-)!  Sorry, Jerry, but I'm really starting to lust after a REAL match rifle, and the Walther's are high on my list.  Later, guys!

One thing that I have seen comments about on the LGR is the charging action.
To charge the LGR you push the charging handle forward.  For some, this is a more difficult direction than pulling the charging handle backwards, towards you.
The FWB 60x and some of the others uses the pull back direction.

Yes, the action takes a bit of getting used to.  I tend to put a rabbit ear bag on the table beside me, rest the butt of the rifle on the pad and then charge by bringing my arms together in sort of a bear hug motion.  I don't think there is any way most could cock the action without taking the rifle off the shoulder.  But it means I do have to go through the same motions of setting my stance, shouldering the rifle etc. with every shot.  And that is the only way to really practice and learn.

The 10-meter PCP's out there look glitzy, yes.  All the aluminum and titanium and composites, and the articulated robotic-looking adjustable stocks and shoulder pads -- very high tech.  And yes, even some of the laminate woodwork stocks like the FWB-603 had a definite appeal as well -- and the FWB-603 cocks on the backstroke.  But I guess I am just old and set in my ways.  I love the feel of solid hardwood and the luster of a deeply blued metal finish on a fine vintage rifle.  Either of these veterans of the 10-meter arena will still shoot far better than I will likely ever be able to master.  And I do love shooting them.

TC
At one point in time, I was thinking about getting an Anschutz 2002 Super Air (SSP) with the WALNUT stock.  But I never did.  I still might...one of these days.
But the AL stock is so much more adjustable that I'm afraid that will be the way I will go and it will be CA/PCP because of the ease of shooting.
