TEST: Walther LGV Competition Ultra Air Rifle




What do you think about this video?

David waspKL: 16 joules is a freaking crapt!!

Jürgen Truu: How much fps?

PCGamingSimplified: Can you do norica spider? Please :)

Nathan Brown: Twat

Marco Nixon: Great review thanks guys. I've just ordered the Challenger model in .177.should have it in a week.Can't wait !

JA2497: They're a great rifle out of the box but for the price I'd have a Prosport anyday with couple of parts and a bit of lube the .177 Prosport is smoother and will constantly hit targets 70yds+ A good shot at my club managed to ring the 70yd Bell target 20mm aperture twice in a 4 hour shoot, I hit it time and time again almost every shot. If you want out of the box smoothness and power get a LGV if you don't mind grease under your finger nails get a Prosport.

AirgunTV: Competition - stock's superior

1LRLRG: Was just re-reading an old issue of Air gunner. Nigel you used to have a stash what happened?

Tadpole: Thanks Nigel, so some interesting ‘in the hand’ observations. Makes you wonder how much R & D goes on. atb t ..

mudbutton2: Looks like they have put in polymer bearing surfaces at the front and rear of the piston - likely one reason why it's so smooth to rooster. It is big coin and IMO looks like a lot of Spanish guns. Cost wise, here in Australia it's worth about the same as the legendary HW80 and the full power Diana 350 Magnum...

wjsg7979: Hey guys spot on review. Very informative. Had a quick question, can you use the Predator pollymag .177 cal. with the Gamo Big Cat 1250? I've heard some say no and some say yes. And in your opinion, what is the best pellet for the Big Cat 1250 .177. Thank you guys so much for all your great reviews

AirgunTV: The wood is a bit heavier than the synthetic Challenger, and more expensive. Yes. The weight helps dampen what little muzzle flip there is - on the LGV, it's not totally necessary, but the Ultra definitely maximises the benefit of the LGV's smooth firing cycle. No idea why Walther/Umarex call the weighted barrels 'Ultra'... but they do! (Possibly because they're ultra easy to shoot accurately?) To be honest, the dimensions are pretty much the same across all stock variants. HTH

Heiner Ußner: Wieder einmal eine klasse Test von euch. auch wenn ich generell keine Knicker mag, ist diese LG vielleicht doch mal eine Option. Weiter so Jungs ^^

daystatesniper01: Good review there Nige' as usual ,would like to see you do a test on the Webley valumax in .20 , in these austerity times . atvb' Mick

syks: very good accurate rifle and if you get your firearms licence you can take it up to 22ftlb and it will still be very accurate :)

HuntersVermin: Very nice Nigel glad to see you back. The rifle doesn't seem to need a silencer with the internal mechanical noises being so well dampened.

paulrelf88: What a beautiful rifle. I hold good engineering in very high regard when it comes to rifles. I hope to have a go with one soon. I really need a job working in your mag lol. I love shooting in all its forms, but I mostly shoot HFT and go hunting. Which I think this Walther LGV is suited to equally. I realise not all like weighty guns, but I personally don't mind it.

SimilkameenSlayer1: that walther would complement my 22lr, could use the walther for the 30 yard shots and my 22lr the 30 - 100 yard shots. awesome combo for snowshoe hare and grouse. thanks for you quality and uplifting air gun videos, very cool!

j0rd4n92: Hey Mrjacksmp Ohio, yeah you can own firearms in the UK with a firearms licence. You can't get one if you have been in prison for 5+ years or have certain mental health problems (obviously), and your not allowed to use them as self defence. I can't really explain everything because i've only just got into it but a quick google search will tell you everything :)

j0rd4n92: Hey nice video. Can anyone recommend me an air rifle, i don't want anything special just one capable of target shooting at 25 and maybe 50 yard accurately. My budget is around £200 because it's only for a year or two until i can get a .22 rimfire but will spend more if neccasary as will keep forever hopefully (first gun, only just got into shooting). Thank you.

Gary Kerr: Could u do a review 20 cal airguns thanks .

TheAlexagius: Makes the mistake of subbing to many gun channels, all upload on wednesday, has work, but must watch them al.....

Antonovsky: Dear Nigel, I've wanted an airrifle for many years. Love PCP, but the air supply is a hassle. This might be a better choice for me. But I do have some questions: Other then the wooden stock, is there a reason to go for the Master/Competition variant? Price and weight go up What is the use of a barrel weight? why put weight in front, only heavy when aiming? Why do variants with it fall under ULTRA? I do have small hands, is the challenger ultra stock any slimmer/better for small hands? thnx!

AirgunTV: It certainly is expensive, SRS... but I'm not sure I agree with your views on its quality. I'd say it ranks as the best quality 'production' air rifle I've ever handled. It was a really sweet to shoot - you'd have to splash out a fair bit on an off-the-shelf rifle to get it running as sweet as the LGV. Put a better stock (just iron out the little faults) on the Competition, and I'd say it would be worth every penny.

David Robinson: Very good review Nigel and thanks for the info and phone number for my regulator.

MikeyMlKEp: Why don't they make a high caliber - fully automatic air powered machine gun? They could attach it to a Military Humvee with a built-in very high pressure air compressor. And using an electro-magnetic trigger system (open-close) with a hopper type feeding system - I bet you could shoot a projectile at a FPS equal to that of a regular gun - and at a very high rate per minute, and all without using any gunpowder or shell casings. No Muzzle Flash either. Or do they already make this?

JosuéVoitena: How many METERS PER SECOND that gun shoots? METERS PER SECOND, not FEET PER SECOND!!!!!!!!

Jesper Lejon: When will you post more videos?

SimilkameenSlayer1: pcp air rifles are "ok" for urban hunting, but not practical for isolated backcountry hunts hundreds of miles away from air tanks compressors. which makes this rifle all the more appealing to me.

AirgunTV: Thanks HV. Sorry it's been so long - but hopefully I'm back on the mend now

srspower: You could be a air arms pro sport and still have a hundred quid left over and the quality on that rifle is rubbish to be honest. When i saw the review i assumed it would be cheaper than the competition not twice as expensive. You'd be mad to buy it.

srspower: Well i can't see it being any more accurate than a Air Arms Pro Sport and it only has a beech stock. And it's a break barrel! The pro sport has a beautiful walnut stock and a underlever providing a fixed barrel and is far prettier and costs a lot less.

AirgunTV: Armex are the sole UK suppliers of this rifle (to the gun shops)

AirgunTV: We don't have a specific day to upload... whatever day the editing's done!!! LoL

Pongo1320: Jolly good and complete with a tele.

ChrisLX200: I've been using one of these for a couple of months. The overall finish could be better (polish and blueing) but it shoots well. When I stripped mine for a look I found the piston rod was loose - partly unscrewed from the piston, and was easily removed completely using just my fingers. I Loctited it back in place after cleaning up the damage caused by the unrestrained mainspring. Umarex never replied to my emails explaining what had happened. Anyway, I'm pleased with it now it's repaired.

j0rd4n92: Hey thanks for the suggestion, will have a look round and see if i can find one. :)

Lore Tom: i dont doubt that this is a terrific gun but with the cheapest model costing just as much as a beeman r9 why not just go with a more tried and tested rifle. Is there anything that makes this gun better than the other top dollar spring guns out there?

highlandrab19: hate to say it but I like some recoil on guns

ttonyashtonyahoocouk: When are more vids due Nige?and can you please review a HW95K .22 tuned by Sandwell Field Sports stage 1 or vermin hunters tv spectre make a good review all the best.Big Tony

Handsomeshooter1: With a silencer the LGV shoots and sounds just like a PCP, if you don't believe me give it a go..fantastic!!! Waiting to see the LGV appear on the world stage as it was released too late for last year,the springer comes of age at the hands of the company that changed the game years ago with the original...LGV!

jack: can any one help me i live in dubai and i want to buy a air gun online or someone tell me a shop in dubai if online tell me the website anyone help plzzzzz?????

syks: think i may save up and get one :) ive owned many pcps but NOTHING beats the fun of springers imo and this one seems VERY interesting

highlandrab19: hate to say it but I like some recoil on guns

faithfallandtrue: Thanks for your reply I will look into those tuning companies

erabian sam: That gun is 350 pounds you can get a remington nitro piston for 300 pounds

AirgunTV: LOL. Grew it to look older (when I was young). Got rid of it to look younger now I'm old!

James A: Cool gun

El Musca: cual es el balor?

Antonovsky: Thanks! That was really everything i wanted to know, and an anwser so soon! Sorry for being a bit short in my question on some points but youtube limits the amount of symbols one can use. Anyway i gues ill have to find a shop that has it in stock so i can get a feel for it, see if it fits it my tiny hands ;). Keep up the nice reviews btw, I've been a subscriber for some time now and its really nice to keep up with the advancements through your videos! Good night.

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
