Verified Purchase

Things I liked: The Diana model 52 is heavy, beautiful steel and wood, unlike much of the plastic airguns sold today. The weight is similar to a military bolt action rifle, yes, it IS heavy, but I find it a benefit when shooting offhand. If you are used to lugging scoped deer rifles afield, the model 52's weight won't be an issue. If you are only used to shooting a plastic stocked BB gun, yes, you will find this heavy. The more you handle this weapon, the stronger you will become. Super accurate with open sights, amazingly so! After I locktight the screws and put a 1,000 rounds through it to break it in, I'll add a UTG mount and Bug buster scope. I love the rifle, it's a quality weapon, easier to cock than the 350 Magnum. The .22 pellets hit hard from this gun. I used it yesterday to take out an overly aggressive Rooster who's time had come. Perfect gun for a suburban neighborhood where one doesn't want to scare the neighbors, but wants an accurate and powerful target / pest control weapon.

Things I would have changed: If I had it to do over, I would have ordered the Vortek spring and had it installed by Pyramid Air. If you are going to spend $500 on a premium airgun, what's another $100 or after so? The Diana spring is fine as it is, but at some point in the future, I'll but the Vortek spring assembly and install it and keep the original Diana spring, etc. as spare parts. This rifle should last me the rest of my life.

What others should know: My first Diana, a model 45 .177, was purchased 30 years ago. Diana's are Great guns, built better than many actual firearms are. I stupidly sold it, but I knew I would get a .22 Diana someday (3 decade delay due to a now ex-wife! LOL!), as the .22 pellets hit SO much harder than .177's and I often need to shoot varmints around the house and barn. German craftsmanship... tough to beat. My next big decision, a .22 Diana 34 or hunt for a vintage model 27...

Things I liked: Absolutely beautiful rifle and shoots just great as she looks. I have the .22 cal model and it's one of my most accurate rifles. Mine happens to prefer the Air Arms Diabolo pellets in 16g. Great for targets and an excellent hunting rifle. I highly recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a heirloom quality rifle that's not only a joy to shoot but can be passed down to future generations.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, love this rifle.

What others should know: If your going to scope this rifle, get good mounts. I used the UTG droop compensation weaver adaptor to mount a Hawke Sidewinder 30. Very solid and has yet to slip. T06 trigger is excellent, I left mine at its stock settings.

  • Julius from USA asked:

    Also, still trying to find out how to tighten the side lever on my 52 so it stays in place and doesn't "flop open". Thanks

    • Julius from USA asked:

      How do I know, after shooting, if my chamber needs oiling-see question below about my RWS 52

      • Julius from USA asked:

        I just bought a used M-52 that was in an estate and has been sitting up for quite some time. What should I do to properly service the rifle so that it is ready to use?

        • Tyler from USA:

          You may want to purchase some RWS Chamber lube and give the rifle a few drops. But you won't know if it needs to be oiled until you try it out. So do that first. It may be just fine and ready to go
