Things I liked:German quality; compact size; smooth firing sequence;
Things I would have changed:Nothing.
What others should know:The Diana Model 430 underlever is a fabulous air rifle. I am an inveterate fan of spring guns and my Model 430 deepens my appreciation for self contained spring guns. I have fired approximately 400 rounds through my rifle and it is beginning to smooth out. The trigger pull is a consistent 1.6 pounds. Using JSB 8.44 gr. pellets, I easily scored hits on 1 1/4" kill zones set out at 50 yards. Knocking down one inch plus targets became so easy that I had to set the 1/2 kill zone field targets at 40-50 yards. The ambidextrous stock on my gun is thick, plain beech wood. I like looking at its fine, elegant lines. My Model 430 exudes the aesthetic appeal born of 124 years of fine German air rifle manufacturing. The discharge is almost instant with no noticeable twang or vibration. The rifle's subtle discharge, excellent trigger, and outstanding accuracy make this rifle a joy to shoot. My 430 is topped with an Accushot 3x12 scope and a one piece mount.
Things I liked:I wanted a mid-powered underlever springer with a good trigger, t06. For me it has the perfect weight and balance for all kinds of shooting situations. Likes all rws pellets, not pellet fussy. very short firing cycle, very accurate.
Things I would have changed:Has the usual rws sights, not so great. rear sight was mounted over the chamber making getting pellets to load a little harder. Removed the rear sight and mounted a scope anyway.
What others should know:A little stiff out of the box but broke in nicely. Being a carbine its a little harder to cock. My fifth and favorite air rifle so far.
