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: My LP8 is an amazing pistol, worth the extra money all the way. The additional distance between the sights makes it very accurate with open sights, and I have not added any optics just because the sights are so well done. Another interesting thing...the barrel is not traditionally rifled with lands and grooves like many of my other high end pistols. It is round at the breech end, but transitions to an octagon shape at the crown to really impart a positive spin to the pellets, and I think this contributes to it's great accuracy. When I empty my pellet traps I can always tell which pellets came out of my LP8 because they have octagonal shaped skirts from the barrel configuration. Get this pistol before they quit making them, you'll be happy with it!

Things I would have changed: Nothing, it's a classic.

What others should know: This pistol, if you shoot as much as I do, will eventually start losing velocity. I send mine back to RWS in Arkansas to have it rebuilt with a new main spring and seal, to keep it nice and lively.

    • 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.
