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: Great pistol if you can get one with sights that work. Bench rest I can shoot dime sized groups at 12 yds.

Things I would have changed: Better sights. First gun shot 1 in. low at 12 yds. Returned gun to Amazon. 2nd. Gun shot 3 in. high with the rear sight at its lowest. Returned gun to Pyramid Air as defective and anxiously awaiting a replacement. Trigger has too much creep but I can work with it.

What others should know: Seems like several people bought the Galbraith grips. Appears that Galbraith no longer sells the grips for this gun. As I have extra large hands the stock grips work fine and Ill stick with them. Galbraith just look better. The JSB Exact Diablo 8.44 gr. and the Meisterkugeln 8.2 gr. pellets shot one whole groups at 36 ft.

Things I liked: First, while I ordered this product as pictured above, I was sent a different gun system. Same gun, but it came with a red dot scope, rifle stock and NO FRONT SIGHT! I love the quality of the gun, but specifically ordered it because it showed a front sight. The, "UPGRADED" model sent to me does not. So now I am forced to use a scope (NOT MY FAV! I prefer open sights). The gun is accurate and powerful for a pistol. Overall, I really like it except for the NO FRONT SIGHT! Bummed about that!

Things I would have changed: PUT A FRONT SIGHT ON THE GUN! Bummed they sent me the one without a front sight.

What others should know: GREAT GUN OVERALL. I am just upset that they sent me a gun system that I did not order and while this system did have some extras, it dd not have that front sight and that is why I specifically ordered the gun by itself and NOT the upgraded package they sent that does not have the sight. I was hoping to teach my Nephews how to shoot and open sight (the basics) is where I wanted to start with the training.

Things I liked: First of all I see that there is already 80 or so reviews of this gun and I now understand why ! This pistol is absolutely amazing ! I been buying and shooting Airguns since the 70s and own quite a few high end guns but I believe the LP8 might just be one of the finest Airguns Ive ever shot! This thing is awesome!

Things I would have changed: Not a single thing!

What others should know: The repeatable accuracy is out standing, and on several different occasions Ive been able to get sub 1inch groups with open sights at 40 feet , and have been able to hit inch and half targets at over 80 feet which does not sound difficult but keep in mind that this is a spring gun with open sights and it is a pistol with a 7 inch barrel! I love this gun and it seems to love the Baracuda FT 9.57 gr. The best but it also seams to like the air arms 8.4 gr. Rows superdome 8.3 gr. And the Baracuda match 10.65 , you will not regret buying this gun !
