Hi guys, I am new to pak guns and in love with the passion pak gun members share . I am going to get a fire arm on my 17th birthday as promised by my father but till then i need an airgun with which i can further improve my aiming and can also hunt small games such as rabbits as we go for hunting quite frequently. I want an airgun which wont fail me in front of my cousins when hunting. While going through all the air gun threads in special interest forum i was able to found out that gamo shadow 1000 was the gun which fits my use and offers both power and accuracy but it is nothing compared to Diana guns. So what i am seeking for is opinion from fellow pak gunners and experienced airgun users such as Dr hanif saheb,wasif bhai,kage fox and tareen bhai on what airgun will best suit me and offers power and accuracy and durability and is good for hunting and falls in the price range of 15k-25k. I would also appreciate if you guys are able to shed some light on turkish airguns such as Hatson 125 model and its availability in pakistan. You can take a glance at the gun in the following video:-

Diana no 2 model 35 without lock. REASON: simple machanism, well balanced and to my experience good for beginner.

the last diana 35 was made in 1987 so finding one in perfect running order will not be easy,the hatsan is powerfull but made of very cheap plastic which breaks very easily and has bad build quality.the recoil is so bad that it will destroy most optics or make them move on the rail

if money was not an issue what is the best air rifle available at the moment in lahore?

Jagga bhai, are you sure no Diana 35 have not been manufactured after 1987? Can you give any source for this information.
Thanks for the information about Hatson. On the Hatson website, they look quite impressive, and like all Turkish weapons, have an excellent finish which straightaway hooks a buyer.

brother gilani i also like the look of the hatsan and the power is excellent the only issue is the heavy recoil but i suppose it could be controlled with a proper artillery hold, i reckon it would be an excellent gun for hunting using open sights
and i would consider purchasing one when i arrive back home.It all depends on if i am able to import the new air rifle i have just purchased.either way i need a powerful and accurate air rifle to use back home so that i can start to train some of the youths in my family to shoot

i read about the diana here

over twenty years ago i sent a original 50 (diana) as a gift to my uncle in pindi
spares are still available here in the uk so if you have a old diana which needs a refurb then just get in touch i will be happy to help


hehe i just dropped a squirrel at 35 yards with a heavy crosswind and a instant kill with a perfect headshot i was surprised by the amount of blood
