Walther RM8 Varmint UC from Germany company Walther is a British styled rifle, but made in Germany so its feels great when shooting backed up by solid and reliable engineering. This has ensured that the rifle has been a massive hit since its release and is now available as this Varmint version with a thumbhole polymer stock.
The RM8 is based around a bolt action cocking and loading system with an 8 shot metal magazine to hold the pellets before they are loaded. The barrel into which they are loaded is a Walther Lothar barrel, which has a 1/2inch UNF thread at the end, fitted with muzzle break as standard which can be replaced with a silencer.
The thumbhole stock is very ergonomic and is made from solid and strong polymer to withstand anything you can throw at it. The forestock now has a weaver rail fitted to make fitting a bipod/torch alot quicker and easier.
The large 200cc bottle provides up to 180 shots with refilling done through a quick fill probe, and a pressure gauge ensures you always know how much pressure you have left.

I have been using this gun for sometime mainly for vermin control, Iike the easy handling due to the short length along with a very robust stock. Accuracy is extremely good considering the relatively low price of the gun, take time finding what make of pellets suit your individual gun. The gun comes with a Walther moderator that’s reduces the sound on firing quite effectively. This is a good gun at a very good price. Buy from Ronnies and you will get very good service and advice if required. I’ve been a customer for years.
Great gun, nicely put together, quiet and accurate. Great experience with the guys at Ronnie Sunshine’s, will be back there very soon
My first Pcp rifle,just wish I had purchased one of these earlier. Very accurate and great all round for me.can highly recommend.
