Here is Why I Fell in Love the Walther Terrus Air Rifle:

Value for Money

The Walter Terrus air gun has a street price of about $250. For that price, you get accuracy, quality, and refined shooting experience. Given the price point, this is a rare combination of benefits. So for discerning shooters, this Terrus air rifle offers tremendous value. 

Most break-barrel air rifles whose price ranges from $240 to $260 offer a bundled scope and more power. Many of them are gas ram powered too. The downside is that many of them are difficult to shoot and come with massive felt recoil. Besides, if you’re to achieve accuracy with those bundled scopes, you’ll need to replace the optic with a higher-quality version.

High FPS is of little value if BBs can’t hit the target. What distinguishes the Walther Terrus airgun from similar priced break-barrel models is that, with the Walther Terrus, it’s easy to achieve accuracy. 

The Walther Terrus is consistent, and shooting it is a thrilling challenge. The air gun is therefore ideal for small game hunting, plinking, and informal target shooting. 

Speed and Accuracy

When I used the Walther Terrus .22 air rifle to shoot the super-light, alloy-made Gamo Raptor Platinum pellets, the peak velocity was 1,105 FPS. When I used lead pellets, I achieved the highest velocity with the 7.0 Grain RWS Hobby pellets.

The accuracy I achieved with this Walther Terrus 22 air gun using these pellets beats the levels of accuracy I have achieved with any other air rifle. Without a doubt, Terrus is an exceptionally accurate air gun. 

Walther Terrus accuracy is apparent in almost all pellets used; this is no mean feat. 

Cocking Effort and Trigger

The Walther Terrus 22 air rifle’s XT trigger delivers a clean and nice break. While it’s not the lightest trigger you’ll ever pull, it’s lighter than similarly priced air rifles.

 The Walther Terrus has 32 Lbs cocking effort. It’s quite manageable, and thus it allows you to plink and shoot casually for a long time. And when required, it delivers enough power to hunt rabbits, ducks, geese, pheasants, and o
