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
Things I liked: It looks good.
Things I would have changed: Spring to gas piston, its horrible gun to shoot. Horrible recoil and TWANG!. More power! Its not even close that powerfull as specs says. Its way too expensive, i feel like i wasted my money for gun wich should really be worth like 200$. This is my first Diana airgun and im very sure its my last Diana. Triggerguard is PLASTIC..What a shame!! This rifle is not balanced well, front of gun is very heavy, and rear is very light wich makes it hard to shoot accurate shots while standing. Dont make same mistake that i did and do not waste your money to this toy.
What others should know: Those open sights are rubbish, you really need scope for it if you really want to hit somewhere, but make sure the scope is solod because of horrible recoil...
Things I liked: This is a very accurate rifle and fun to shoot. Diana has done a fine job with the fit and finish with this one.
Things I would have changed: Very hard to service. Upon finishing maintenance, I began to reinstall the stock. Wow, that was a pill. It took me 2 hours to reinstall 3 stock screws. I still could not get the 2 washers in the right place at the forend of the stock. I found it next to impossible.

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