FiEld TEsT by Col. dEnisE loRing “Jenna was kind enough to let me shoot the Walther LG400 during her practice session at the Fairfax Rod & Gun Club. I appreciated the opportunity to try it out, since I have been away from shooting for a while and was interested in what the new rifles have to offer. The LG400 is light and well balanced and is completely adjustable to get a solid position. I especially like that the rifle can be fired by a right- or left-handed shooter by 18 SSUSA MARCH 2013 changing the cheek piece and grip, which makes it a great rifle for a club with many different shooters using the same equipment. Once we set the rifle up to fit me, it was a lot of fun to shoot with a smooth trigger action and a lot of power behind the pellet.” Colonel Loring has served in the United States Army for 27 years.
