Diana LP8 Air Pistol, .177 caliber


Caliber.177" (4.5mm)
Max Velocity700 fps
StockSynthetic
GripAmbi
ColorBlack
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:

Accurate. German made.

Things I would have changed:

For goodness sakes, how much extra time at the factory to polish the trigger components. So, polish the trigger components. More power. I was hoping for at least 600fps with 7.4s

What others should know:

Way overpriced for what you get; a pistol, a handle, and a cardboard box. I always use 7.4gr pellets for chronograph testing, so keep that in mind. Listed on website as 700fps. 20 shot groups at round numbers, 0 to 20, 50 to 70, 100 to 120, 200 to 220, 300 to 320, were a solid consistent 560/561 fps. Very consistent, and the barrel is accurate, Clover leaves, and same hole shots (from bench rest) at 10m. That said, I get 600+ fps from my Crosman 1377 pumper with very minimal drop in accuracy for $60. The cocking was smooth but the trigger on the Diana had to be fixed. It felt like after the first stage, when you are into the second stage it "stops" and is no longer smooth, it's like it hits a wall and added pressure just crashed through the stiffness. After disassembly and polishing it was perfectly smooth through the second stage. It's german made, so be aware they use a lot of parts for something that only requires 5. 2000+ rnds and it shoots like the first one.

Things I liked:

Liked the power and accuracy in this springer.

Things I would have changed:

Needs better grips or an available replacement set.

What others should know:

This is a long pistol and not many suitable hard case options to fit.

Things I liked:

Great pistol for the money. Mounted a Hawke red dot on it and it's quite accurate. Easy to load easy to cock, especially with the extension though it isn't required.

Things I would have changed:

Trigger is crap. When slowly depressed, 2nd stage is erratic - sometimes fires immediately, and sometimes continues to a 3rd (?!) stage before firing. As is commonly noted, grip has sharp edges between the two sections. Unfortunately, Galbraith brothers is out of business, and Custom Firearms Products is moving their manufacturing and so there is currently no supplier of 3rd party wooden grips. I'm going to try cutting a sheet of Talon pro grip to see if I can improve the grip.

What others should know:

It's big and rather heavy. Much louder than my HW75 Sig ASP, IZH-46m. About the same or slightly louder than my HW45.

  • Jon from USA asked:

    Can't find wood replacement grips for this. Any recommendations for a grip sleeve?

    • Jon from USA asked:

      Can you leave the cocking assist on the barrel when firing or must it be removed after cocking?

      • Ken from USA asked:

        Can this trigger be adjusted to make the pull lighter? Ive read that the screw under the trigger guard is for this. The specs for the gun say the trigger is non adjustable. I would really like to lighten this trigger pull.
