Salams, this week as I was playing around with the Airsoft toys I thought I should get my childhood Airgun out as well and see how it performs in a shooting environment. I was interested in checking out the results at 10 and 15 meters.

My generator and a borrowed cushion served as a rest.

4774

4778

First 5 shots at 15 M. I did not mess with the zeroing (it needed a few clicks to the left) and tried to shoot a group. I was surprised at the results.

4776

The target after 10 shots. Fantastic accuracy.

4777

Initially I was going to test the airgun at 10 and 15 meters but it was performing so flawlessly and accurately that I changed the test distances to 15 and 25 meters.

Below target shot at 25 meters. I was quite taken with the accuracy. These are amazing groups for an airgun. The five shots out of the group was solely my fault as I was shooting with black sights on a black target in fading light.

4775

The power of the gun at 25 meters. The board was quite hard.

4772

A lemon looked threatening so I decided to take it out. ;)

4773

It was the night of reckoning for all the Lizards at my place tonight. 14 Dead in 17 shots, rest gone into hiding. Not for long :rip:

@Trigger Happy, Huzaifa, S.Cheema, Mehdi Thank you.

The pellets used were .22 Besa Diabolo by BSA UK. The lizards after getting shot were not a pleasant site to see.

You can get the spring from nila gumbad lahore, maybe not original but it works.Take the old one along for measurement purpose, or if u don't have it the gun smith should be able to guide you,The front bead can be fixed by a machinist ( gun smith) easily.Or inquire at the below address about the parts u require.Diana people are helpful.

Thanks for the input. I have given it to a Karigar in a small city, it's been about 3-4 years now, but he said he couldn't fix it. The gun is still lying with him due to my lack of interest.

@Chauhadry

Any plans for selling it, I might salvage some parts from it and try to make my air gun operational.

@Mujtaba Try to find it in " Blue Minaret" Lahore. You can get it from UK also.T.W Chambers & co.
www.gunspares.co.uk (http://www.gunspares.co.uk) .The spring for Diana 45 is about 11 pounds in U.K from T.W Chambers & co.This is a treasure trove for original Diana Spares

@Chauhadry you will also find your gun spares here.
Foresight 15 Pounds
Main Spring 8.39 Pounds
