    Anyone heard about the new FT Walther air rifle with brown stock... for imminent launch ?

    Details are sketchy...but supposedly they are doing away with the mutha lump of alu , currently part of the Walther barrel...and something about the front barrel clamp being ajustable ie: free float.

    Am quite keen to receive or see the pre release pics....just like the next gen. Apple IPhone story that broke all over the world on news netwoks ! :D (nb: Its on on Gizmodo)

    ...if someone in the know cares to share ??? ;)

    Guys, not really a NEW rifle.

    It's the normal LG300 with the laminate stock, but they added a "release clamp" to the a-frame, so when it gets quite hot and there is expansion, you could release the clamp and it would give way a little, and then re-tighten.

    I held it at IWA in March, and it's just the new patent of the release catch in the a-frame that got added.
