Caliber.177 (4.5mm)
Max Velocity700 fps
StockSynthetic
GripAmbi
ColorBlack
If you like to shoot spinners or do some casual target shooting, the LP8 is perfect. Repeatable accuracy!


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
  • 700 FPS (alloy pellets), 580 FPS (lead pellets)


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.

Things I liked:

Easy to cock and load with solid lock up action. Hole in hole accuracy ... if you're capable. Heavy, so a bit difficult to shoot free hand. I have bad shoulders, might not be an issue to average user. Super accurate from bench or rested. Have fired many different pellets from this and find it not to pellet picky. Currently use Excite Econ II pellets (very inexpensive) and accurate at 10 meters.

Things I would have changed:

Bad trigger out of the box ... trigger creep and excessive crunch. Also has heavy trigger pull. Had this thing apart several times polishing parts and removed 2 loops from spring to reduce trigger pull. After I did the work, the trigger has an acceptable release. For the price a better trigger assembly should have been incorporated into this gun. If the LP8 had a better trigger out of the box, I would have given it 5 stars overall. If you're not comfortable with taking it apart and polishing trigger parts, then I would reduce my rating to 3 stars.

What others should know:

Overall, I am happy with the LP8. I have a range in my basement and shoot daily. I fire my LP8 more than any other gun I own. So far, I have around 4000 rounds out of it without any problems. The cocking and loading are so easy that I take it down to the basement with the intention of firing 25 rounds and usually fire 50 to 100.

Things I liked:

I actually had to return the first one for pellet seating issues. I could not get a pellet to seat all - any pellet. As usual returning something to Pyramid Air was very fast and trouble-free and I was pretty happy that I would get a a decent gun. The gun seems to be well built well-balanced and has very good accuracy potential however the non-seating pellet gets damaged upon Barrel closing so who knows how accurate the gun can be.

Things I would have changed:

Somebody at Diana should probably do a little bit of a QC and their guns. Things I would change would be having the people at Pyramid actually inspect the gun for the problem that it was returned for, not just take a box off the shelf and see that it shoots. The second gun arrived with lead shavings in and around the end of the barrel and Barrel seal. Which means the gun had the same problem which also means they didn't even inspect that as a problem which was the complaint of the first gun.

What others should know:

I received two separate guns and both had the same issue. No pellet wood seat flush with the back of the barrel no matter how hard tried with my thumb. If it's going to be a requirement of this gun to use some kind of seating tool that should be sent with the gun. But I don't think that's the problem. Needless to say I returned even the second gun because it was a lot of fun I thought but I'm not spending that kind of money on a German product that doesn't take the time to inspect chamber size. Diana is probably now very suspect as a purchasing option. And I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in Pyramid Air. It did not bother checking the problem that the gun was sent in for upon inspection. Oh and by the way I called airgun Depot afterwards to see if I could get them to send me a gun that they would inspect properly and much to my surprise and Chagrin the same lady that took my first complaint call at Pyramid was the lady at airgun Depot. They are sister companies. I did not know.

Things I liked:

Ease of, enjoyment of shooting targets, great way to enjoy an afternoon

Things I would have changed:

Needs better quality control. Mine arrive with a spring off causing the trigger to stick. While it wasn't difficult to repair it shouldn't have required repairing.

What others should know:

Order did arrive on time

  • Kyle from USA asked:

    Anyone found a well fitting holster for this gun?

    • David from USA asked:

      Is the front sight barrel shroud removeable ? So you can put a custom one on for scope use. And longer to make cocking easy. Instead of using the cocking assist handle ?

      • Kyle from USA answered:

        I recently bought this gun and have been shooting around 50 rounds per day - getting used to the gun - I have no problem cocking without the assist handle, only used it once just to try it & I'm no muscle man fwiw. The front sight barrel shroud has 2 allen screws underneath - suggesting it can be removed - but I haven't messed with it. Hope that helps.

    • David from USA asked:

      Will they ever make one in .20 or .22 ?

      • Kyle from USA answered:

        I've heard there is (was?) a .22 version sold in Canada.
