The box states this has a 9.125" barrel. It does not. It has a 7" barrel.
  • RWS Diana LP8 Magnum pistol
  • Spring-piston
  • Breakbarrel
  • Single-shot
  • Ambidextrous grip & operation
  • Fiber optic sights (adj. rear)
  • Muzzlebrake for greater cocking leverage
  • 11mm scope rail

The box states this gun delivers 700 fps. Airgun writer Tom Gaylord tested this gun for the Pyramyd Air blog and got 755 fps when using extremly lightweight alloy (lead-free, 4.0 grains) pellets. If you use lightweight lead pellets (7.0 grains), your velocity will be around 560 to 580 fps. He found that Gamo Match pellets (7.56 grains) delivered the best accuracy when shooting the pistol from a rested position.

If you like to shoot spinners or do some casual target shooting, the LP8 is perfect. Repeatable accuracy!

Things I liked: Love this gun ! I find myself enjoying it more than my beeman P1. ...it's got a bit more power and is much less fatiguing to load after 100 rounds or so. The trigger is crisp and breaks clean and predictable.The fit and finish is of the fine quality you can always expect from RWS/Diana. As this gun is new and I'm still breaking it in. ..I'm already impressed with it and can hardly wait to see what she'll be like after 750 rounds or so.

Things I would have changed: I feel they could have made the grip frame a bit smaller to allow owners to fit it with larger grips fit to their own hands...IMHO But i feel all guns should be that way....you can put a custom grip on easily but you can't change the frame. So no complaints!

What others should know: Be careful to seat your pellets all the way or you will get lead fragments on your breach seal. I'm hoping diana will offer an add on stock and better still a nitro piston upgrade ! I love my benjamin np pistol's smooth nitro piston. ..put that in this gun and it would RULE !

Things I liked: Quite accurate, more quiet than I though it would be as compared to the P!

Things I would have changed: Plain iron sights would be better for my vision

Things I liked: I added: - Backpack "Fieldline" size 45 cm x 23 cm x 11 cm - UTG 1PC Offset Airgun Mount w/Stop Pin, 1" Bi-direction - Simmons ProHunter ProDiamond Reticle Shotgun Scope, 4x32mm - Galbraith Brothers Black Walnut custom grips for the Diana RWS LP8 Magnum

Things I would have changed: Nothing.... pistol gives more accuracy than my skills... as a spring-er is awesome and made with German quality.

What others should know: With Polymag Predator 8.0 g all shots at 10 meter from open sights gets 10s and 9n on the gamo standard target. I took some pictures will be glad to share it....!

      Was included with the pistol...!

    • Stanley from USA:

  • Durwood from USA asked:

    Has anyone changed the barrel to .22 and or is it possible?
