Diana 460 Magnum Luftgewehr

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 trigger

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.

Here I test the precision at a distance of 11m while the gun sits on a gun rest. The more stars, the better the precision.


Handling is the overall rating of how the rifle can be handled by the shooter. This includes transport, cocking and loading the rifle, handling in prone, kneeling, and standing positions as well as weight and recoil.
