[Closed] Walther LGV
With thanks to Mark for these pics, who says:
"A rare one this,more so than a LG55 DST as these rifles were banned from competition use,just as Walther made the DST trigger unit available for the LGV.
Stamped into the breech just above the serial number and next to the 'F' in a pentagon are a couple of what looks like shields one of which has '84' in it. Then there is '.705.' next to that.
The breech unit is not drilled for fitting open sights.
The standard rear diopter is fitted, although the front unit is fitted with a post foresight...
Standard match stock with really nice butt pad and a wood plug just behind the end cap that was fitted to strengthen the pistol grip."
Note that the breech block is not drilled for and open rear sight.
The first series of pics are of a 'UIT' stocked version of the LGV which was transitional and spanned earlier and later models. This is a Spezial. Pics courtesy of Mike D.
The second series are of a later LGV stock with sloped forend.
This rare boxed LGV sold on eGun, the German auction website, in March 2013:
