Things I liked:

From the minute I opened the shipping box I was excited and impressed. The Diana box was in perfect condition and when I opened it the rifle was securely packaged and held in place like it should be. The rifle was pre oiled for deliver/sit time and there was not a bad mark on it. This rifle is beautiful and built very well, great materials and craftsmanship, if I had to nut pick I would say the wood stock feels almost fake but it looks good and feels strong, besides I didn't buy it for the stock. The side cocking works smooth and flawless, the safety systems work great and don't slow you down. Shouldering the rifle is very comfortable and it is not to heavy and balances well. The firing cycle is smooth and quick, very close to a gasram really, no buzz or twang. I don't say this about many guns but this one deserves credit for being lazer beam accurate, no lie, and it being a hard hitting .25 cal, chronied at 725fps average!!! I am in love....

Things I would have changed:

Not a single thing!

What others should know:

This gun barely dieseled on maybe 2 shots, and I am getting 725fps average with H&N fts 19.90 grain pellets. Diana magnum pellets come in 20.00 grain so I wanted to be close to their recommended weight of pellet. Even shooing JSB 25 grains it still should shoot 625-650fps, that no slouch in a accurate .25 cal rifle. If you buy it you will not be disappointed.

Things I liked:

The 52 has one of the nicest stocks ive seen on a new airgun. Trigger is excellent after replacing the lawyer screws and adjusting to you liking. Accuracy is amazing 80yds 1" groupds with jsb's 15.9gr.

Things I would have changed:

Get rid of the plastic. such a beautiful rifle then they spoil it with a plastic front sight and receiver cap. Other than that nothing

Things I liked:

I didn't use this rifle long enough to write an in depth review; I had to return it because the side lever jammed a couple of times (must have been a defect because the other reviews are so positive). What I can say is that this rifle is quite accurate. I would also like to take this opportunity to review Pyramid Air. With my experience in online shopping (of which I do 90%) I must say Pyramid Air provides the best customer service by far. The prices are very competitive, especially with 2 day shipping for items over $150. and the bulls eye bucks offer puts them way out in front of the competition.

Things I would have changed:


What others should know:

Pyramid Air offers a wealth of free information, reviews, and videos for both beginner, and experienced shooters alike. These are the things that make Pyramid Air a go to seller.

  • Jeremiah from USA asked:

    Could anyone tell me if the Diana 52 (bought in 2014) is a spiral or smooth bore. How do you know the difference?

    • Wayne E from USA asked:

      I have A model 52 I bought in the late 80*s early 90*s the instruction manual says not to oil the air chamber. but the spring is beginning to feel A little like it is rubing hard on something when you cock the rifle.Anyone have any thoughts on this?

      • Jeremiah from USA answered:

        I am surprise that the tell you not to oil the gun. I have been using these rifles since 1995 and I clean the barrel and chamber after 500-600 rounds. oiling and cleaning is necessary. Get a cleaning kit and that baby will deliver every time. Given the age, the recoil spring may need changing. The FPS can be checked at the store. It should be not less than 650 minimum. If changing the spring is necessary, get an original one. Hope this help. Cheers

      • Jim from USA answered:

        When you say the "spring", are you sure it's the spring that you feel the friction from, or could it be the sliding chamber -- the silver part you see move when you cock the rifle? If it's that, you might need a little silicone grease on there. Otherwise, check out the blog post on oiling --

    • Henry from USA asked:

      Does this rifle have a plastic trigger and safe switch?

      • Wayne E from USA answered:

        I have A model 52 I bought in late 80*s or early 90*s it has A plastic trigger but the safety is steel.

      • Paul from USA answered:

        Under description it clearly states a metal trigger.The safety appears to be the plastic style.
