Things I liked: Bought mine from Pyramyd- The quality is Diana. Mine is just pretty all over. It shoots just fine for its intended purpose , that is mostly plinking with open sights. I have no doubt that with a small scope it can group very well at distances beyond 10 or 15 yards. As for shooting offhand at cans at 10 to 20 yards with open sights you will see that missing is not part of the game. I have a collection of Diana magnums that can only be shot from sort of rest because of their weight, ergo the tripods and shooting sticks. The 240 is a baby Diana 34 , it has the same excellent German craftsmanship , the great TO5 trigger but its a lightweight. The deal I got on mine with two high quality metal targets included made my Christmas this past year. German quality at this price is very seldom seen. No if or buts its a DIANA!

Things I would have changed: Expect it to diesel a lot because of the oil they put on the piston and spring to keep it lubricated foot shipment and storage. This smoking takes a while to cease maybe 50 or more shots. If you know how to work with RWS / Diana rifles its a walk in the park to correct the dieseling and lubricate it properly. The factory Breech seal I find that its to low and maybe the problem that causes bent skirts noticed by Tom Gaylord. I chose to change the one on mine.

What others should know: The Diana 240 classic is a wonderful rifle for plinkers. Expect 500 feet per second velocities with 7 grain pellets, that should be about close to 5 foot pounds of muzzle energy. Cocking effort is just right for kids 12 and up. Kids as well as adults can shoot this gun for long periods because of the ease of cocking. This is not a gun for hunting, its designed for shooting fun, always with the proper precautions. I have no doubts it is a rifle I can recommend for pleasure shooting.i

Things I liked: Nice size, weight, balance, fit and finish. It's a very handy rifle. It's not too small for an adult, but it's also kid-friendly. It's Made in Germany. No barrel droop.

Things I would have changed: I don't care for the fiber optic sights. That's a fad that needs to go away. I bought three of these rifles, because the price/value is very high. Like others, I've had some issues with accuracy/consistency too. At 20 yds, I'd get a few shots in a tight group, then they'd seem to drift and become inconsistent. I "think" I've found the cause, or part of the cause. When I remove the front sight and push a pellet through the bore from the breech to muzzle there is a definite burr or rough spot at the very end of the muzzle. When the pellet is flush w/ the end of the rifling, that's when I feel the bump or resistance. It is not the barrel choke, but more like a manufacturing glitch. Chucking a pencil into a cordless drill and applying JB Bore Paste to the point, then polishing the muzzle end for a few minutes removes the rough spot. Due to weather, I haven't been able to re-test the gun at 20 yds, but I'm hopeful.

What others should know: One of my 240s would detonate badly when firing. I had to tear it down to remove the grease/oil from the chamber and properly re-lube the spring and piston. The other rifles sound very dry and mechanical when cocking and firing. I suspect they are dry inside. This gun has potential to be an R7 or HW30 competitor, but seems like Diana made mistake(s) with the barrel. If the burr at the muzzle is the primary issue, then the fix is fairly easy making this rifle an excellent value. Out of the box, I can understand people being disappointed w/ the gun's accuracy. I'll add to the review and revise ratings after I have a chance to shoot again at 20 yds

Things I liked: I own about 35 air guns, so have several to choose from. Up to this time one of my favorite guns to take out plinking was my Bronco. Now it and the 240 sit side by side. They are both all day shooters and a lot of fun. I like to shoot both of them with open sights.

Things I would have changed: Not a thing, it's great the way it is.

What others should know: Not a hunting gun, just a fun gun.

  • John from USA asked:

    I really dont like the fiber optic sites on the Diana 240. Are there standard blade iron sites , front and rear, that Could be installed on the 240? Does not have to be Diana product.

    • Phillip from USA asked:

      Will this rifle have barrel droop like most all other Diana's?

      • SG from USA:

        I agree with you that most Dianas are droopy. However, I just got a 240 and there is very little to no droop. I also recently just got a new Model 34 that has minimal droop.

      • Paul from USA:

        A lot of break barrels have barrel droop not just Diana.

    • michael from USA asked:

      Is this made in Germany.

      • VICTOR from USA:

        Yes, these are M&G (Diana) from Germany. Vic, AZ
