Walther LGU

  • Code: 2252071 · .177 · 1000 fps
Out of Stock
If you're tired of buzzing mainsprings in spring-piston air rifles, turn your attention to the Walther LGU underlever springer. It comes with a special vibration-reduction system that reduces that annoying spring buzz and delivers smooth shooting characteristic of a tuned air rifle. While the buzz reduction would be enough to convince most people this gun is a winner, here's one more bonus: Super Silent Technology. That's Walther's proprietary noise-reduction system so your gun doesn't have that annoying crack that wakes up your neighbors or scares away all the critters you're hunting. Most manufacturers give something many airgunners call a "lawyer trigger." It's hard to pull and generally not adjustable. Walther decided to give you a sporting trigger that you could adjust. So- now you can change the first-stage pull weight as well as the travel. It's your gun- and you get to decide what the trigger feels like. This air rifle has many uses besides hunting: field target, bullseye targets, spinners and tin cans.

If my upper body was not as strong as it is I would not be reviewing this gun, but it is and for a heavy springer this gun is so sweet. Noise suppressor is ideal. Trigger as good as my HW. In .22 this is a beast. Bluing is superb. The gun has no thwang that the HW is renown for. Nikon 3-9 and it is a show off piece.

By KeithApril 22, 2018

This is a fantastic air rifle straight from the box very little in the way of tuning needs to be done as for accrecy it is the best springer that i have used i have tried quite a few and this one comes out on top for me but everyone to their own i would recomend this air rifle as a must if you are thinking of getting a springet

By garyUSAJune 5, 2017

after reading every singe review it seems to be a very exceptional,, well behaved desirable air gun ,, when i started back into air gunning i bought a cupple break barrels with the air vortex gas piston and not a quality springer ,, live and learn and make em a gift to the boys on the other side of the mountain ,,this 11.81 barrel and one other short 9.5" Lothar Walther barreled under-lever rifle would be my next choice as they seem to be the most accurate and well behaved airguns without the headaches of pcp air requirements allso would make for the best survival air gun as all ya need is pellets,, I have noticed it does not state in the description that this air rifle does have a lothar walther barrel and other walther air guns such as the maxima thor does state in the description it has the lothar walther barrel known for it excellent accuracy,,,, the walther sub 12 inch barrel that will shoot a dime at 20,30,40 yards is proof of there excellent accuracy characteristics I currently shoot a 12 inch 177 walther barreled rifle at a measured 35 yards and can hit a dime sized target 4 or 5 times outa 10 shots the rest right around a silver dollar size around the dime,, got enough room to shoot 200+yards if i want ,, but wont hit nothing smaller than a 60s model Cadillac on a good day with the wind in my favor at 200 yards so 35 is just right for me till i master it all in a dime.

not one bad part of any review,, weight was the only a small complaint

none,,would I recommend this item ,, id say take the time read the reviews ,, the answer is obvious and my rating was a have to or review wont be published ,,so ill give it a 5 because all other reviews were so positive about this rifle

Got this rifle after reading many reviews on how accurate the LGU was. I could not tell that it was a refurbished rifle when I received it. Not a single issue that I could see on the stock or action. Bluing was a deep shiny black and the underlever cocking was super smooth! Tried JSB 14.35 and Hatsan Vortex 13.12 pellets in it and was very pleased with the accuracy. JSBs were the most accurate at just under 1/4 inch at 21 yds. Hatsans grouped a little bigger but were pretty good for plinking with on a budget. Very quiet rifle for backyard shooting but it is a bit on the heavy side.

Quality fit and finish. Solid built rifle and accurate!

Heavy rifle so you may not want to use it for hunting as it may get tiring to carry around all day. No provisions for a sling mount.

If you want a gorgeous gun that looks amazing and shoots accurate, get the TX200. If you want a high quality gun with tank like construction that is also accurate, get the HW97K... if you want a gun that is all of the above, LASER accurate and LESS money , get the LGU!! It is spot on accurate, beautiful and very high quality!! This gun could split hairs!!! It's a FANTASTIC shooter... Mounted Bushnell Trophy scope: I found that this gun is not pellet picky but it seems dialed in with the RWS Superdome 8.3 pellets.

Quality, price, accuracy and feel throughout the whole shot cycle... amazing gun! Super accurate!!

Trigger has a lot of first stage play... that would be my only gripe but it's a minor one!

By SidneyUSADecember 5, 2016

The bluing is very dark & highly polished. Nice stock and the under lever operation is smooth like glass. Muzzle report is very quiet when shooting both 14.3 gr. Crosman and 18.1 gr. JSBs. and accuracy at 20 yds. is good so far. Average groups off a rest was a half to one inch with the rifle still being new. Shot cycle is also very smooth with no spring noise and I would say a very backyard friendly rifle.

High quality craftsmanship throughout the entire rifle.

A little on the heavy side and could use a little more power.

By JudeUSANovember 22, 2016

Zeroed her in with 4 shoots,now I'm stacking pellets. .love this gun

Owning one


By Dan AuUSANovember 3, 2016

I got this rifle as a "refurb" for a great price! It was in "new" condition! Mine is the .177 cal. The quality of these new Walther springer's is very, very good. The bluing is something between Air Arms and Weihrauch. The wood stock has a plain patterned grain but the finish is superb! Cocking it is very smooth as is the lock up. Tiny bit of spring twang develops after a hundred shots or so but not bad. I would get this instead of the HW97k as the firing cycle is very similar, if you don't mind the weight. The trigger has a slightly long first stage but the second stage releases nicely. Shooting Crosman Premiers at 865 fps. Very accurate. I haven't found it necessary to adjust anything on this rifle as it is great out of the box. The trigger is plastic but the wide blade feels great! I would easily recommend buying this rifle if you want a great under lever at a reasonable price.

High quality throughout. Smooth cocking and firing. Very accurate. Not pellet picky. Lower priced compared to TX200 or HW97k. Quieter than a lot of similarly powered springer's.

A bit heavy. Cocking harder than a HW97. Stock is a little chunky by design at the foregrip but the rest is great.

This review was a pleasure to write. I prefer .22 cal air rifles but wanted an accurate .177 springer in my collection. I tried several break barrel spring and nitro piston rifles and frankly accurately has been hard to find. Until I bought the Walther LGU. I love this air rifle for a number of reasons. Firstly it is very accurate. I love that I can hit a dime at 40 yards. This makes it safe and makes for a clean kill for the squirrels that invade my garden every spring. The fit and finish is first rate, and I like that it is heavy. Heavy means quality and generally better accuracy. I also like that it is under lever design. From my experience under and side level air guns are more accurate. The trigger is the best out of the box that I gave encountered; I don’t need to change a thing. The LGU is as accurate as my .22 cal RWS 54 Air King, both are dead on and equal in accuracy to my MROD. An observation, from looking at recovered pellets, the rifling on the LGU is deep. Other less accurate air rifles that I have show barely noticeable rifling and hence I believe are less accurate. And a bonus for me, it shoots Beeman Kodiak copper pellets (10.19g) very well. In the target photo you see ten sighting in hits at ten yards. After I cleaned the bore (be if you clean the bore from the muzzle be prepared to remove the muzzle break, otherwise patches will disappear into the void) and shot a few clean out shots, those ten shots were all it took to get this rifle to zero and a 3/16” group after total 15 shots through the rifle. The Walther LGU is well worth the price. Mine with the Hawke 4-12x50 AO IR is now a prized possession.

Very accurate. Smooth action. Not hold sensitive. High quality throughout.


By BillyUSAApril 12, 2016

Got this in .22 version, absolute accuracy. Shoots flies at 25 yards using JSB Exact 15.89 gr. domed pellets.

Beautiful design and craftsmanship. Materials are top notch. Not hold sensitive and shoots many brands and types of pellets accurately. Excellent trigger, smooth firing cycle, (just a quiet thump). Easy on scopes.

I am having trouble getting a scope mount to stay on the dovetails on the .22 LGU I just purchased. There isn't a large choice available locally and I am wondering what mounts have others used successfully on this rifle? I have a Leapers UTG 1 in. 3-9X50 AO True Hunter scope. I want to avoid ordering something that will not work well or isn't high enough for this scope. Thanks

asked Jim

Why such a difference in FPS between the .177 and .22 versions? I'm used to a 20% reduction, but this is more than 40%. Typo?

asked HB from USA

It is not 40% reduction in velocity of .22. If we subtract 25% from 1000 we get 750. So there is 25%reduction in velocity.


The .177 comes in several enrgy levels for the different coultries it is sold in includng 16 and 23 joule versions. The US only gets the 23 joule version. The .22 comes only in a 16 joule version which is what every country that can legally have at least 16 joules gets. 16 joules is about 12 fpe. 23 joules is about 17 fpe, but I believe the guns we get are closer to 14 fpe or about 18.5 joules. Don't know why the .22 is not available in 23 joules but that is the way it is. hope that helps.
