Things I liked: The price at $149.00 is amazing for a German rifle. Keeping in mind I've only run about 150 shots through mine, the accuracy is good.. Groups of 1/2" at ten meters off hand are starting to come around. I'm hoping that it becomes excellent later. the metal work and fit of stock to action is nice. The trigger is not quite as nice as the rekord on the weihrauchs but it is a pleasure to be able to get a clean crisp let-off. The trigger is why I rated overall at 4 stars instead of three. It's a decent rifle.
Things I would have changed: I would drop the fiber optics...just my preference, I target shoot and the blazing spectrum of colors is more than a little distracting. Simple, adjustable, iron not plastic sights, with less frill would help accuracy and not increase cost. I would include a manual that was more specific to this rifle. The one that came with mine was generic. The finish on the stock is pretty but the stock was stained and finished over some rather large dents and the final shaping was done in what must have been a serious rush.
What others should know: The cheek piece is much too high.When you try and rest your cheek on the stock the first thing you notice is a sharp pain as your face slams into the cheekpiece. I have many guns of all types and the only other one that has a cheek piece this high is my Umarex Octane. This makes the gun almost unusable without a scope. I have to twist my neck and raise the butt of the stock halfway out of my arm to try and get my head tilted enough for a decent sight picture. If I decide to keep it and work the stock down about 3/4" I think the accuracy will be outstanding. Also be ready to tighten every single screw. My sights were very loose, and the three stock bolts were only finger tight.
Things I liked: Very light, very accurate
Things I would have changed: The plastic rear sight is not fantastic. Does the job, but would be good to have more elevation and some clicks to keep the setup.
What others should know: Overall great gun for the money.
Things I liked: The Diana 240 Classic is my first Diana airgun. I find it to be a quality product and very accurate. It is quite easy to cock and the open sights are satisfyingly good. The trigger is very smooth, breaks cleanly and the 240 is surprisingly quite and backyard friendly. Most of my other airguns are scoped but I have decided to use this 240 with open sights and it doesn't disappoint. The wood stock is beautiful and fits the metalwork quite well. I'm impressed...especially for the price of $150 (however the new catalog Pyramid sent with the gun has the price raised to $199.) If you're looking for a low-to-medium power springer that has a reasonable price, I can highly recommend the Diana 240.
Things I would have changed: Nothing. It's almost perfect the way it is now. The quality is outstanding.
What others should know: Enjoy.

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.
Three drops of flat black paint works wonders
Will this rifle have barrel droop like most all other Diana's?
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.
A lot of break barrels have barrel droop not just Diana.
Is this made in Germany.
Yes, these are M&G (Diana) from Germany. Vic, AZ
