English style, but Made in Germany: The new WALTHER ROTEX RM8 is a pre-charged air rifle for hunting and for leisure-time shooters. The repeater features an 8-shot rotary metal magazine, capable to hold all kinds of pellets up to 9 mm length. The RM8 is available in 4,5 and 5,5 mm (.177 and .22) in different versions up to 30 joules. The ergonomic stock, made by Minelli, offers an instinctive and defined grasp, just when you need to be fast. The barrel was made by Lothar Walther, with a 1/2" UNF thread for a silencer. In 16 Joules the integrated tank delivers up to 180 shots. The manometer is already built-in (Scope not included).

A silencer reduces muzzle noise, but it does not limit noise in the rifle itself. This is where Super Silent Technology comes in. The LGV is extremely quiet even at high energies. Zero-play fit in places like the barrel lock and cocking rod reduces the noise level, as does the guided piston with an improved polyurethane seal and air cushion.
The Vibration Reduction System ensures better accuracy and smooth firing. It includes a piston with zero-play piston rings made of low-friction synthetic material. To gently brake the piston with an air cushion at the end of its travel, additional transfer holes for each energy level are drilled at optimum locations. This dampens the recoil and protects the rifle scope. The piston spring, made of specially tempered valve spring wire, has a long spring.
