Review of Diana 350 Magnum Classic by AirGhandi! A rifle “Made in Germany”!

How will it perform? How precise is it?

I answer these and other questions in this post and in the accompanying video.

If you want to compare the rifle to other air rifles I have already tested, you can do so HERE.

Specifications of Diana 350 Magnum Classic

Diana 350 Magnum is a complete and full-size air rifle. With a build length of 48.4″ (123 cm), it is definitely one of the longest air rifles I’ve tested. However, it isn’t too heavy with a weight of 8.3 lbs (3.8 kg), which gives it plus points in the handling rating. The stock is simple, beautiful, classic.

Magnum Classic is a single-shot spring-piston break-barrel air rifle. It can be cocked without much effort. The overall length gives shooters with a longer arm span an advantage, as they can achieve better leverage.

The open sights, consisting of a TRUGLO fiber optic rear sight and front sight, allow you to shoot even without a scope. For all shooters who prefer to shoot with a scope, you have the option to mount one on the built-on 11mm prism rail.

Before you can fire the shot, you have to push in the automatic safety, which activates when you cock the gun, with your thumb to deactivate it.

The classic beechwood stock can be used ambidextrously, making it suitable for both left- and right-handed shooters.

The T06 trigger

Among other things, the T06 precision trigger is responsible for the excellent shot pattern. The first stage travel, trigger pull, and trigger weight are adjustable. The trigger weight can be variably adjusted from 14.1 – 17.6 oz (400-500 grams). My test rifle had a trigger weight of 15.1 oz (430 grams).

A big advantage of buying Diana air rifles is that you don’t have to configure and adjust the trigger yourself. It is excellently adjusted ex works. I’ve only made adjustments to the T06 trigger on very rare occasions at all.

Shooting with Diana 350 Magnum Classic

Now let’s start with the practical part. How does Diana 350 Magnum Classic perform?

In my test, I used a Sportsmatch UK TO35C mount and a Hawke Airmax Compact 3-12×40 rifle scope. This combination is one of my favorites for distances up to 27 yards (25 meters). Of course, with a 12x magnification, you can shoot at much longer distances, but I generally like to shoot with a high zoom and be very close to the target. Of course, this is all a matter of habit and personal taste.

I used my AirGhandi’s Finest again. They work outstandingly well in virtually all Diana air rifles.

The recoil is clearly noticeable when shooting. I would rate it as medium to high. However, you can quickly get used to the rifle and it isn’t really an insurmountable challenge.

My conclusion

Yes, dear shooters, here we have a full-fledged break-barrel rifle “Made in Germany”. 350 Magnum is from Diana’s “Performance Line”.

The quality, the looks and the technology were absolutely convincing in my test. The system is beautifully burnished and the rifle performed well.

All shooters looking for a high-quality rifle that will last forever should take a closer look at the 350. To Diana fans, I can only advise: Buy it, people! You won’t be disappointed!
