By Charlier3 from USA on 2009-02-20 09:43:17Things I liked:The shorter barrel mekes this an awesome looking and feeling rifle. The scope mount provides a perfit tight fit. I was very impress with the accuracy right out of the box, and it just kept getting better the more I shot it. At 25yds I am getting my shots consistantly clustered.
Things I would have changed:The mussle break needs to be a little more secure as I have had to tighten it a few times.
What others should know:this is the second RWS DIana in our family and although the other is almost 20 years old, it is still a great gun. QUALITY, ACCURACY, WORKMANSHIP, VALUE- nothing else says it.

By Michael from USA on 2010-07-31 10:57:45Things I liked:The looks and the quality of this rifle are great. The wood stock is beautifully finished. The metal is evenly blued with no imperfections. The muzzlebrake is all metal, and serves as a nice cocking handle. The compact style is very appealing to me. The power of the rifle is right in line with my needs. It sends 8.2 g. Meisterkugeln's pellets over my chrony @ an avg. of 932 fps. That's makes almost 16 ft. lbs. The accuracy seems to be great at times. Mine seems to like H&N Field Target Trophy's the best so far, giving some very tight groups. I had several groups of less than .15" @ 10 meters with a Leapers 4-16x50 scope. No barrel droop!
Things I would have changed:Offer this rifle without a scope. The RWS scope that comes with it is OK. It did not however adjust down to 10 meters very well at all! It looked very hazy and out of focus, so in my safe it sits. At longer distances it's doable.
What others should know:With less than 200 shots through it, I was hesitant of giving a review. It's still breaking in. The tight groups that I talked about before were also accompanied by some that were less than stellar. The 2 stage trigger is also inconsistent ( at times). Sometimes it catches in the middle of the second stage, just before release, and other times it breaks very smoothly. Consider this an "out of box" review, as I'm sure these characteristics will change in time.
