    Strange this should appear on the day we announce Walther sponsoring the WFTF World Championships, but that's how it goes...

    And it looks like they'll be shipping action only as an option!

    And factory conversion!

    Is that about a grand then for an action less air cylinder? If so.. what a bargain

    Would you say rob ,that the 400 is a marked improvement over the 300?

    Notice they leave the compensator out (guess it’s less effective at 12ftlb, though my 400 with one is definitely softer than my 300).

    400 has same trigger
    400 12 ft lb conversion uses same reg

    interesting to see the factory ft gun now has 560 mm barrel . even longer than the ( err ....490 ? ) domi . and nearly 6" longer than the 10m 400

    The 400 has the most recent version of walther's attemps at a stabiliser and some teeny valving that make the short barrelled gun a bit farty .

    They shoot ok though

    Yep looks like about 1000 for an action . That would make a nice gun in one of your stocks

    Yep, that's what I'm thinking.

    Especially the amount of manufacturers starting to offer actions only,its time I finally sorted my rfd status out.

    I've shot a couple of the alutec 400s and they shoot lovely, but not any experience of the internals. That's probably for the best tbh.

    So by my reckoning, you could have an lg400 at factory 12ftlb in a tailored stock for about a couple of sleeves of pellets less than an ftp.

    That alutec version is identical to the one that city air weapons have had for months, same break and butt plate. There's pictures of the individual gun on their website. I wonder how they happened to get it so soon?

    Wonder if they used the long barrel and compensator to correct the loss of
    the absorber. I use the TX model absorber on my LG 300 and its a
    pain to adjust but when you sorted that it shots lovely.

    This is my LG400 FT 16 joule and I test it for over a year now. The compensator didn’t do well in the 16 joule version and it got removed. This made the rifle a lot more consistent. I just changed from Alutec to a wooden stock because I like the balance much better. The system itself is very reliable and sturdy. The fact that the scope gets mounted straight to the system block made it also more temperature stable then rifles where the scope mounts to the chassis in my opinion.
    Nevertheless I like the rifle a lot and it is the best PcP I shoot till now. 3932FEEE-FBB4-4023-BDFA-5B0F13D6FC69.jpeg 6ECF3AAF-A292-452E-BAFC-62A656223E84.jpeg 23397460-F470-436D-8EFC-F67C55F1AF69.jpeg

    Hi Frank
    I see on the picture you have some type of compensator on?
    When you took of the compensator and shot it is it the
    long barrel that so to say compensate so the gun feels
    ok to shoot with out "recoil".

    I shoot it with, without and just the original tube (the blue one from the alutec). The very little noticeable barrel jump is reduced with the compensator but this could be also due to the added weight which the Compensator has. The groupings improved in average but I had some batchnumbers which had the same grouping no matter if it was installed or not. With the compensator the gun is extremely steady and I can easily see the pellet flying and striking.
    I hope this answered your questions.
    Best regards

    Wonder if this has the 12ftlb lg300 reg in it, looks like it could do.

    It might well be a slightly different version of the 12 ftlb reg as the original dommie one’s spigot that bears on the firing valve seal, isn’t long enough to do the same job just fitted into a 400; you have to fit a spacer or make a new reg end part. So Walther will have to have done one or other of those.
