Canít see Walther developing a 16J LG400 if the LG 300 (Dominator) isnít selling in sufficient volume. None of the German Target gun manufacturers have perused the FT market with any success commercially due to low volume sales and German firearms law bureaucracy.

It would seem that Umerex as a manufacturer are pinning their future FT success on the Hammerli brand, with the AR20FT. My guess the AR20 is made outside the Fatherland and avoids the bureaucracy and associated costs. Umarex would then peruse the profitable 10m market with the premium Walther brand.
Could there be an opening in the market for a professional LG400 conversion along the lines of the Wellam Anschutz or Early Hydrographics LG100. This gun could then encompass the required mods needed to make it competitive.
