    Is this why Walther are killing off the Dommie?

    Does half the price mean half the quality???

    Regards

    Leads to loads of questions, going to reserve judgement til I actually see one in the metal.

    Rob,

    I would read that as an accidental omission of the word "rail" ...ie: 'bla blah includes scope rail' ...

    Would be a first for a gun manuf. to offer a scope ! :D

    I believe that 7.5 joules is 6ft lb.

    FT and HFT rifles run at 16 joules, which means 12 ft lb. But on previous threads it has been said that the rifles are coming in 16 joules.

    Ask duckhunter he has ordered one to trial.

    Should be fun to see, would need a stock made for it I think though. Wonder if you caould buy just the action??? Just a thought mind.....

    I'd be surprised you could get them that cheap Don the 3 that came into the country 6 months ago were almost £500, plus according to Walther there are no more Dominator blocks & there won't be any more :(

    Sounds a little cheap to me as well. The Anschutz 'system' as they call it is £1200. Thats action barrel and air cylinder. The P70 'System' is £1575.

    OK YOU GUYS I HAVE READ ALL THAT YOU HAVE SAID ABOUT THEM - NOW I WANT TO BUY ONE
    I HAVE GOT THE CASH - I HAVE TRIED THREE MAIN DEALERS - ON ONE I HAVE OFFERED TO PUT DOWN A DEPOSIT - AND THEY HAVE NOT BOTHERED TO EMAIL ME BACK.
    SO IF ANYONE CAN POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION OF AN IMPORTER, I WOULD BE VERY GRATEFUL.
