Walther Rotex RM8 Review
The Walther Rotex RM8 was launched in 2014. Since then the line has expanded over time to include four rifles that share many components but are very different in their own right. Designed specifically with hunters in mind, the rifles are more than adequate for use on the range and for target shooting too thanks to the high quality barrel and an adjustable two-stage trigger which makes them capable of high degrees of accuracy. The ambidextrous stocks, which include wood (the ‘Classic) and synthetic options (Varmint), are designed by Minelli of Italy and make attractive as well as highly functional handles. Consistent across the range is an eight shot rotary magazine that is operated by a bolt action and locked into place with a sliding catch, as well as a resettable safety catch which sets every time the action is cocked. Rotex RM8 rifles all take a maximum charge of 232 bar and are available in both .177 and .22 calibres with power outputs up to 22 ft. lbs.
