Diana 280 mit Trefferbild und Bullseye Zielfernrohr

Diana 280 is an elegant and beautiful air rifle. Even tall shooters can comfortably shoot with it due to its nice size and light weight.

Specifications of Diana 280

A big advantage of the spring-piston air rifle is the trigger. The T06 trigger, to which I have dedicated a separate post here on my website, is excellently adjusted ex-works. The first stage travel, trigger pull, and trigger weight are adjustable. However, I recommend that you don’t adjust too much at once. If you want to adjust it, adjust one screw at a time and test if the adjustment is for the better.

If you don’t have that much experience, the trigger can be completely misaligned very quickly.

The automatic safety is activated when you push down the barrel. It can be conveniently deactivated by pushing it in with the thumb. It doesn’t matter if the shooter is left-handed or right-handed. The safety is easy to reach.

If you don’t want to shoot the air rifle using the rear and front sights, a scope can be attached to the 11 mm prism rail. Diana 280 has a plastic prism rail mounted on the system.

I think Diana has created an excellent air rifle with its Diana 280. I would put this on par with, say, a Weihrauch HW35.

Enjoy my video!

Best wishes!
