    Default Walther LGV springer air rifles and barrel length

    been playing around with barrel lengths and cut two rifles down to about 300 mm and added a silencer
    from previous reading on this forum and other forums, springers dont need
    long barrels to develop their full velocity potential
    the longer barrel is more of a cocking aid giving more leverage
    added a silencer, now the total rifle length with the the silencer is the length of a std rifle

    Lgv rifles are famous for having a very gentle recoil, accuracy was just as good because the overall length was shorter it is more manouverable with quick shots
    didnt bother chronographing accuracy and silence was more important
    just as a matter of interest the barrel was removed from the breech block and shortened so the choke was retained on the 177 . The first rifle was converted from 5 mm ex Webley value max barrel which is un choked
