Things I liked: This gun is delightful. I use it for indoor shooting. I'm getting 485 fps with an 8.2 grain wadcutter - perfect for indoors. I had the RWS 34 at nearly twice the price and the quality of this gun is almost indiscernible. I'm getting better groupings than with my TR5 and the trigger is smoother as well. I put a 4x scope this gun but the iron sights were quite good for making consistent shots too. While its big brother needed a slanted scope mount to account for barrel droop, this one did not. It's easy to cock and a joy to shoot. It's much less work to shoot than a multi-pump pneumatic, which is what I like about break barrels, and much easier to load pellets into than the Daisy 880 class of multi pumps. Also, at the relatively low power level it does not smack you so hard as the big break barrels do when it shoots.

Things I would have changed: I'm not a big guy and I find, like with the RWS 34, the distance from the pistol grip to the trigger is pretty far for small hands. It works for me but it's may not for some youth. The Air Venturi TR5 would be better for a small person, but I do find that gun quite a bit more difficult to operate.

What others should know: So far this gun likes the Meisterkugeln 8.2 grain wadcutters.

Things I liked: Easy, easy cocking; accurate to a fare-the-well; lightweight; beautiful fit and finish; not picky about pellets; lots of power; in short, the ideal air gun.

Things I would have changed: Nothing.

Things I liked: This is a quality air rifle. However, after receiving it I decided I wanted to put a scope on it to I went back to your website and took advantage of the chat option. The person seemed very knowledgeable so I took his recommendation for the scope and mount to make sure I had a secure fit. I took the air rifle, scope and mount to the most reputable gun shop in the county where I always do business to have it mounted properly. They advised me that the mount would not fit (wrong size) and they used the mount that came with the scope. So much for your expert. It wasn't a lot of money but I was not happy after making a sizable investment in the air rifle and scope, plus the cost of having it mounted professionally.

  • charlie from USA asked:

    Is there an advisable Time limit I can keep my rifle cocked without concern of causing damage to the springs or any other part of the rifle?

    • Mark from USA:

      You should not be left cocked for more than 1/2 an hour. The spring will "take a set". It will stay compressed and have to be replaced.

  • Alfonso from USA asked:

    What is the LOP on the Diana 240?

    • Mark from USA:

      13 1/2"

  • Werner from USA asked:

    Can this go up to 75 yards with scope? Just shooting paper. Thanks.

    • Mark from USA:

      75 yards is a bit far. even 50 yards will be a challenge. You need 800 fps + to get you out to 75 yards.
