    All,

    Is it a simple matter of changing the existing low power regulator on any 10 meter Walther LG300 to the 12 lb/ft (16joules) one, and presto !...you have a top end FT air rifle ???:D

    If its not a simple point on replacing the regulator, what other mods are required ? ...and who can provide advice what needs to be done in a pic tutorial , step by step ... ?

    From conversations I've had with a couple of blokes it's quite involved. Reg, hammer spring, valving (?), removal of anti recoil if it's an XT, cocking handlen (?). It all sounds too much effort/cost for me so I've never looked any further into it.

    Can be done. You need a new 16Joule regulator, new loading bolt (without all the "absorber" things in and behind it), new cocking handle, new valve seat (white one) and valve return spring, and if your LG300 is an old one also the valve itself.
    (not a different hammerspring or hammer, take a look at the "ersatzteiliste" at the Walther website and compare the dommie list to the lg300 list and drawings and you will see which parts have a different ordernumber)
    From what I read when I researched this option the difficult part is the correct adjustment of the cocking handle and loading bolt in relation to the barrel breech end. Too tight and you damage things, too loose and air escapes at shot. For the rest it is a pretty straight forward exchange of parts I guess.

    For me the cost for new valve/seat/valvespring and regulator was about 170 euro. Add the loading bolt and cocking handle for total cost. Around 200 euros total I would guess.
    Maybe better to sell your LG300 and buy a real Dommie, probably safer and more value when you want to get rid of it (not that you ever want to get rid of such a fine rifle, but maybe your heirs are not into FT ;-)

    By the way 2 dommies for sale on this Dutch airgunforum:

    I'm sure it is mate, but i'm also sure the pictures and the figure before the word "euro" tell enough. And i'm sure you'll get a reply in english when interested.
