The box states this has a 9.125" barrel. It does not. It has a 7" barrel.
  • RWS Diana LP8 Magnum pistol
  • Spring-piston
  • Breakbarrel
  • Single-shot
  • Ambidextrous grip & operation
  • Fiber optic sights (adj. rear)
  • Muzzlebrake for greater cocking leverage
  • 11mm scope rail

The box states this gun delivers 700 fps. Airgun writer Tom Gaylord tested this gun for the Pyramyd Air blog and got 755 fps when using extremly lightweight alloy (lead-free, 4.0 grains) pellets. If you use lightweight lead pellets (7.0 grains), your velocity will be around 560 to 580 fps. He found that Gamo Match pellets (7.56 grains) delivered the best accuracy when shooting the pistol from a rested position.

If you like to shoot spinners or do some casual target shooting, the LP8 is perfect. Repeatable accuracy!

Things I liked: Holy crap!!! For being a spring break barrel this pistol is super accurate and easy to cock without the cock assist. Not to loud and best stock sights on a pistol, bulls eyes at 10 yards and hitting a 3in steel plate at 25 yards with open sights!!!

Things I would have changed: Trigger pull could be better. Price is high but so far is worth every penny.

Things I liked: Love this gun ! I find myself enjoying it more than my beeman P1. ...it's got a bit more power and is much less fatiguing to load after 100 rounds or so. The trigger is crisp and breaks clean and predictable.The fit and finish is of the fine quality you can always expect from RWS/Diana. As this gun is new and I'm still breaking it in. ..I'm already impressed with it and can hardly wait to see what she'll be like after 750 rounds or so.

Things I would have changed: I feel they could have made the grip frame a bit smaller to allow owners to fit it with larger grips fit to their own hands...IMHO But i feel all guns should be that way....you can put a custom grip on easily but you can't change the frame. So no complaints!

What others should know: Be careful to seat your pellets all the way or you will get lead fragments on your breach seal. I'm hoping diana will offer an add on stock and better still a nitro piston upgrade ! I love my benjamin np pistol's smooth nitro piston. ..put that in this gun and it would RULE !

  • Aldo from USA asked:

    Anyone using a scope with this gun? Recommendations good or bad? Thanks

    • AL from USA asked:

      i bought a diana rws lp8 pistol that does not say where it was manufactured how can i tell where it came from. It says on the gun to contact umarex usa for repairs. I've had it for only a few months and today it started firing when I closed the barrel, really not good messed up a cabinet, could have been much worse.

      • AL from USA asked:
