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.

Soon get used to the auto safety and its lighter than my Walther Century .177 break barrel. Going to make for a very good pest control tool.
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.
