Sneak peak: SHOT Expo’s new guns

Thompson/Center and Walther will debut a pair of innovative new firearms at Australia’s biggest gun show, the SSAA SHOT Expo, which is just over a week away.

T/C’s all-new switch-barrel Dimension will make its Aussie debut at the expo, while Walther’s innovative new range of air rifles, the LGV series, will also have its first public outing.

Described as “a technological leap in the quality, versatility and value of bolt-action rifles,” the Dimension allows owners to switch calibres on the one rifle platform, with a guarantee of minute-of-angle (MOA) accuracy.

“The Dimension has the revolutionary Locking Optimized Components (LOC) system, which allows shooters to change components and calibres in just a few minutes without the need for any gunsmithing,” Bernard Papps, of Australian distributor Frontier Arms, said.

Frontier Arms is also behind the new Walther air rifles.

“It’s great to see a manufacturer with Walther’s pedigree in world class precision target arms now putting that technology into this series of sporting air rifles,” Mr Papps said.

First shown at Europe’s huge IWA Trade Show in Germany, the LGV break-barrel spring-powered air rifles include Super Silent Technology for smooth firing and a Vibration Reduction System for increased accuracy.

There are five different models in the series with various sight and stock options. All models are made in Germany and are available in both .177 and .22 calibre.

You can see both rifles in the metal at the Frontier Arms booth at the SHOT Expo, and you can also see them on the Frontier Arms website.

The SHOT Expo is being held in Homebush, NSW, on the weekend of 16-17 June. For more details, see the official expo website.
