One of the top models of Diana spring-piston air rifles is Diana 460 Magnum. It’s available with up to 26 joules. In Germany, however, air rifles over 7.5 joules may only be owned with a valid gun permit.
Specifications of Diana 460 Magnum
The spring-piston air rifle with its fixed barrel and underlever cocking has a convenient breech chamber. This allows the shooter to comfortably load the pellet even if, for example, a long scope for Field Target is mounted. The scope can be mounted on the 11 mm prism rail.
With its pistol grip, Diana 460 fits comfortably in the hand. A checkering in the fore-end area as well as on the grip complete the excellent feel. A ventilated butt plate is attached to the stock to reduce the recoil at the shoulder.
I classify the recoil as medium to strong.
When you cock the lever, please always hold it tight for safety reasons. Of course, the air rifle has a safety mechanism that protects the shooter from injuries caused by a recoiling system. Nevertheless, you should definitely get into the habit of this additional safety step.
The air rifle has the Diana T06 trigger. Its trigger pull, pre-travel, and trigger weight is adjustable. I personally find the T06 trigger to be the best in the recreational air rifle range.
