Wanted to buy
« on: December 11, 2018, 05:21:07 PM »
Hi all. I am new to the forum, so apologies if I get this wanted ad wrong. I would very much like to own one of the Walther LGV air rifles in .177, if anyone would like to sell one. Many thanks.

Hi Richardo, welcome to the forum. We don't see those come up for sale often. I have fired the break barrel version, but haven't tried the underlever yet.
I do know where there is a .177, Weihrauch 97 KT for sale. As new, wood thumb hole stock, Tin Bum kit fitted, FAC power, which I think is around 14 - 16 ft/pd.
If interested pm me.

Hi Pauly5. Thank you for the welcome and reply. As much as the 97 is a great gun, I will give it a miss as I prefer to own a break barrel LGV. Perhaps one will come up for sale.

Ngaio rifle club had a few Walther LGVs. Not good. They were early ones and the triggers were poor compared to a Weihrauch trigger or a Diana.  The Walthers just didn't live up to the advertising hype. Shot one of the memebers LGV and was not impressed. Later model ones may be better. There is an HW 95 for sale on TM. They are just plain good.

You have to tell us what it is. The next best thing to buying a gun, is knowing what someone else is buying.

Hi Pauly5. Most unexpectedly a Crosman 2260, the last rifle I would have ever thought of buying. But with me getting on in years it will most likely extend my shooting life far more than a springer would. And there is no way that I can afford a pcp.

I know the rifle well and I am somewhat jealous. Well done.

Hi Richardo,

I haven't done any work on the trigger, Not sure if the owner did himself or not. I believe they are the same as the discovery trigger, not bad off the shelf but certainly room for improvement.

Cheers

An update - thought that I would let you know that the 2600 buy didnít go ahead. Instead the seller proactively offered a HW95 as an alternative. I accepted the offer of an HW95. Although my quest for an LGV  was unsuccessful I will be very happy with the 95 as by all accounts they are a good gun.

Another update óó for reasons totally out of my or the vendorís control, the sale of the 95 fell through. So I ended up buying the 2260. Because of the holiday break, I will take delivery in the New Year.
