Things I liked: This is a well made rifle with an excellent trigger that's adjustable to the shooter's needs, and with stunning accuracy that holds its own with my TX200HC and HW97K. The K98 is about as heavy as them, though the Mauser's weight leans more toward the muzzle, making it ideal for bench shooting. The owner's manual includes trigger adjustment directions that are easy to follow, though a very small screwdriver, such as those used by jewelers, is necessary to adjust the two screws inset into the trigger blade. A specialized tool kit is included with the rifle, though the screwdriver will not fit the adjustment screws. Overall, this rifle is a superb piece of work.

Things I would have changed: Nothing

What others should know: Mine is a .22, and after testing a number of pellets for accuracy, the finest pellets I shot are Air Arms Diabolo Field Heavy, 18gr. I was quite surprised to learn that my rifle is a drooper, needing a UTG droop compensating mount for a T06 trigger to get me on target.

Things I liked: The rifle seems mostly well made and solid. Cocking effort is not excessive. Trigger is reasonable for a simulated military rifle, though that might be faint praise given that most military rifles have vague, long trigger pulls with a lot of pull weight.

Things I would have changed: The balance is terrible. I have a military K98 built in 1938, and the balance difference is like night and day between the Diana replica and the original rifle. The replica is muzzle-heavy. So much so that shooting it offhand is not very much fun for me. But it does make me appreciate the fine balance of the real K98 all that much more, so I guess in a way the Diana replica is useful in one respect. Shooting off the bench is a better experience. The rifle is reasonably accurate if I do my part, though (again), the real 98K is much better in this area as well.

What others should know: If you are looking for a clone of the real Mauser 98K that is much less expensive to shoot, don't bother with the Diana replica. This rifle is deeply disappointing from that standpoint. If you are simply interested in an air rifle that is styled like the 98K for shooting off of a bench rest at 15-25yds, this could work for you. Given the price, I was hoping for a lot more.

Things I liked: Looks and feels close to my 98K 8mm rifle. The adjustable front sight was a nice touch.

Things I would have changed: Should have had a metal trigger guard ( I know, that's nitpicking, but, Hey, this thing was expensive). Actually, I think there should not be any plastic on this rifle.

What others should know: Fit and finish was very good. Remember this is a replica of a military gun, so don't expect it to look like a Mauser designed and built for civilian hunters. The operation is very much like a Diana 460 magnum, so I won't get into that. The accuracy of this rifle is just like the 460 ( which I also have) that is to say, very good. Hitting a 1 1/2 inch target at 50 yds. is very easy and consistent using a 3X9 scope. The mounting rail is canted a small bit to the right side, but, not enough to return the gun. I didn't try the open sights because of bad eyes. Chrono. tests show 765 fps ( ave) with Exact 14.35 gr. vs. 780 for the 460. 700 fps for Falcons vs. 730 for the 460. Note, my 460 is tuned for accuracy so the velocity is about 100 fps slower than when new. For me this thing is great, it is very much a conversation starter when others see it . Then when they see it hit a small object ( like a plastic pill bottle at 50 yds.), they are impressed, as I was. For me, it's a keeper

    Can you ship in india .22 bore k98.which one best rifle .177 or .22

    • Smaug from USA asked:

      Can you recommend which peep sight to mount on this? I agree that it is meant to be without a scope, but a peep sight is FAR superior to the blade style, especially on a fixed barrel gun like this.
