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: Quiet (sounds like a spring, not like an explosion) Accurate Easy to cock

Things I would have changed: The dovetail rails will shear with a small scope mount. They should feature a picatinny rail or else make the top part out of steel.

What others should know: If mounting a red dot, get the UTG mount with 4 screw holes. UTG Drooper Scope Rail MNT-DNT06 [PY-A-4191]

Things I liked: Fairly easy to cock, especially with the supplied appliance over the end of the barrel. Automatically returns to SAFE when cocked. Red & green fiber optics on front & rear sights makes it easy to obtain target, especially these old eyes of mine. I have found it to shoot very accurately and even though I haven't tried all the pellets in my armory, this pistol has liked everything I've put in it so far.

Things I would have changed: Trigger pull is pretty heavy and it apparently can't be adjusted to lighten it up at all. [I like them lighter and have possibly been spoiled by my Beeman P1's and P11.] Also, I found that I have to remember to place the pad of my trigger finger very flat and square on the trigger or I will get a painful pinch to remind me when I pull thru to fire. The fit & finish of the

What others should know: Fit & finish on the plastic grips is not as good as it could be. I'll have to "dehorn" the lower end by filing or sanding the sharp edges where the two halves of the grips meet on the fore strap to make it feel smoother to my strong hand when I grip it.

Things I liked: Solid steel construction. Ease of cocking.

Things I would have changed: Fit and finish on plastic grip is not great. Where it meets on front of gun bites into my hand a bit. I bought an aftermarket walnut grip from Galbraith that blows the cheap plastic away. I feel at this price point it should come standard with a wood grip. In order to sight in the gun I have to move the rear sight a fair amount to the left. Seems like it should be closer to the center when sighted in.

What others should know: None.

  • Paul from USA asked:

    Is the dove tail made out of plastic?

    • dick from USA asked:

      Does it include a device to make cocking it easier?

      • Stanley from USA:

        It states that the cocking assist handle is optional.

    • Durwood from USA asked:

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

      • Jerry from USA:

        You would need to contact Umarex to see if it's possible, 476-646-4210 Ext 7
