With thanks to Nick for the following information:

Walther LGR overview:

Introduced in 1974 LGR = Luftgewehr Rückstossfreie =Air rifle Recoilless

Models available:

LGR - The standard model, Beech wood stock, pistol grip and extreme fore end are stippled.

LGR Match - Walnut stock. Compared to the standard model, extensive stippling on the fore end extending from the trigger guard to the cocking lever handle, higher sight line (for head up shooting style) supplied with front and rear sight riser blocks. Slimmer and more upright pistol grip , no thumb groove on pistol grip.

LGR Laufende Scheibe (Often referred to as the RT or Running Target, Walther use the terminology Moving Target) – Distinctive thumbhole stock, adjustable height cheekpiece, wooden butt plate, no open sights and a single stage trigger.

LGR Match Universal – Introduced May 1980(1), generally as Match model but featuring a detachable cheek piece to vary the sightline height. Originally 3 cheekpieces were supplied, broadly replicating the Standard/Match/Moving Target sightlines, by the end of 1980 only two were supplied (2).

1983 saw a new adjustable riser system for the cheek piece, offering more adjustment (see manual p.12 &13 for details).

LGR Match Junior – Announced May 1980 (1), available early 1981. Reduced stock dimensions for the junior shooter, butt and fore end shortened, pistol grip to trigger distance also reduced. Supplied with the lighter 150g muzzle weight.
