Walther is increasingly adding its name to the list of manufacturers of .22 LR chambered clones of famous (and often unattainable) guns. Furthering this, they have introduced a G36-style .22 LR chambered rifle, for those who always wanted something that looked like a G36, but shoots like a .22 (and cost a lot less).
Walther Arms, Inc. introduces the HK G36 rifle to enhance their already well-defined line of tactical rimfire firearms. This genuine replica offers all the excitement of the original in the cost effective .22 L.R. caliber.
The Walther is a lightweight, polymer performer that delivers and features consistent shots and terrific accuracy like the original HK G36. The rifle features a folding stock, a detachable sling swivel (sold separately), and a Picatinny rail. Complete with ambidextrous external safety, fixed front and adjustable rear sights, the well-recognized semi-auto is another great addition to the growing line of tactical .22s.
“The .22 caliber HK G36 is a perfect addition for us.” said Everett Deger, Marketing Director for Walther Arms, Inc. “This gives the consumer an affordable opportunity to experience a replica rifle used by German armed forces and infantry around the world. The G36 .22 is just fun, pure and simple.”
The first shipment of Walther HK G36 .22s have begun to arrive with additional inventory arriving weekly. The G36 will retail in the neighborhood of $599.00 MSRP.
The new .22 G36s are HK branded, despite being marketed by Walther. The MSRP is definitely in the same league as other “tactical” .22s; considerably higher priced than a Ruger 10/22, but certainly a lot lower than the weapon they mimick.
