Things I liked: Nothing at all!
Things I would have changed: Nearly every thing!
What others should know: Yes. The metal work is not blued but a black mat finish. The stock had a flat dull finish. For a few cents they could have put a semi gloss finish on it for the price. I think the cocking is much higher then they say. I'm not a child and I could hardly cock the gun. After 2 weeks the breach would not lock open so I could insert a pellet. The good people at Pyramyd Air took the rifle back and sent me a Air Arms Pro Sport for a few dollars more. This air rifle should fall into the $100.00-$125.00 bracket. For a little more money look at the Air Arms TX200 or the Weihrauch (sold by Beeman as a HW97K), both are EXCELLENT under levers for the money.
Things I liked: Well made German rifle. Very accurate. Smooth shooting circle.
Things I would have changed: A bit heavy, but well balanced.
What others should know: I love my 460. I bought this one cause I'm lefty. It shoulders better then the 460. But it was shooting much slower. Using 14.3 gn, muzzle velocity was just over 700. I thought it was supposed to shoot a lot faster. As far as I know it the same platform as the 460. I didn't like that, so I returned it. If you want that power go for it. My 460 with JM kit shoot at 800 and it's as accurate as this one.
Things I liked: German quality and real power in the .22 version. I had the 10 for 10 service done before shipping to me it peace of mind as this is my 3 rd rifle I buy thru pyramid air! The chrony sent averaged 931 with rws basic pellets. Well I tried it now that I have mounted my utg 4-16x50 utg mild dot scope and checked it to make sure it was good. The pellets I tried are 14.5 superdome rws and it still gives 878-859 spread of fps real good! And almost accurate out of the box at 40 yards I was off before sighting by 2 inches low after about 6 pellets I was within a inch to .3 of and inch of dead center. Pretty impressive considering that normally break ins to work good is over 200 pellets.. And I am very happy I recommend this rifle to anyone!
Things I would have changed: Should specify that you need a pica tinny rail adaptor be it rws or utg with compensation works perfect!
What others should know: Make sure you buy a base and the recommend should be rws or utg for rws with droop compensation it will give you easy adjustments for and scope at longer ranges. Buy a good scope and stay away from cheap scopes since this is not a cheap springer I say get a good 120+ dollar scope that has at least 4 star reviews. Oh and the pellets that work good are 15.9 jsb for heavy and rws 14.4 mid weight and H Rws hollowpoints 14.2 and surprise the cross man premiers domed 14.3 also all group very well and hit hard. For target the basic rws 11.9 are great within 20 yards great for sighting! Clean same hole!

Nice gun, would love to see it with gas piston and sling mounts and weaver rails for scope. Is there a way to put a sling on it and a gas piston in it?
A sling could be done, but you'd need to drill into the stock for swivel studs. The gas piston is not something we have seen from Diana yet in their under and side lever models.
Does this Diana 470th require a droop compensation mount like the 460 magnum? I can't find anywhere that it is recommended? Thanks
Droop does happen with fixed gun, my 48 has a lot of droop, thinking of bending the barrel, a lot of people do it and it saves the scopes.But I love my 48
Droop is really not an issue in fixed barrel guns
What are the best pellets for this specific .22 470 th air rifle? One for target at 30 yards and for hunting at 50 yards? Thanks.
I use GAMO TS22, around 22gr and its awesome for 460, 350, 52, 54, and all magnum air rifles.
