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

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...

  • Mandeep from India asked:

    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.
