    Exactly......:D

    A well sorted HW97 will see off a LGV every day of the week, however, I do not know what a LGV would be like with a venom kit.

    I disagree I personally think an LGV is so much better than a HW97 even when sorted.

    I've shot a few LGV's now and I've been very impressed! I shoot a 97!

    The LGV wins it on hold sensitivity, but looses on ergonomics against a 97. Take your pick.

    The walther lgv competition ultra is by far the worst springer i have ever owned
    the bluing is rubbish the trigger wont fire some times leaving you with a loaded rifle
    it will group 3 pellets on top of each other the next 3 will be high low or left or right
    not just with me with anyone who has tried it,
    i have found out a batch left the factory with out the piston rod being locktighted into place
    i had hoped for so much more from a top end springer but iam left very disappointed
    cheers

    Splendid stuff Mr Samson mate, I've shot a couple LGV's and I was very impressed. I can only imagine this will be better still :)

    I tried a club mates LGV thing and it was superb. Only other "spring" gun I have shot like that was a Whiscome?
    Inch kills to 35 yards no probs and 55 yard full like shooting a pcp. nerarly.
    Have to say the underlever version looks nice and with a custom stock it may be an alternative for ft or as is be spot on for Hft?

    Brian knows how good the LGV is but from my sources the LGU is even better!! I may be bringing one back from Walther end of month! Its basically combination of bit of TX200/HW97/LGV all in one.

    If I can get one ill bring to Paul James British Recoiling Champs let the real springer shooters test. ;) So if you want get your arse to Anston ARC. Im not promising anything but will do my best! See how drunk I can get the Germans whilst im there!

    That would be mega. The one place to get as many FT and HFT shooters opinion there would be that shoot.
