    If you go to the gun shop and also check HW80. Try to shoulder it and feel the different airguns Diana and HW.

    I have a HW80k from the early 1980s tuned by a specialist company. These German air-rifles were designed for 18-22flb energy and are excellent, in terms of design, trigger (Record unit which is not bettered) and repeatability of accuracy etc and more than ideal for small game. However, many say it is on the heavy side.............good engineering usually is.

    A good scope will be needed for any quality air-rifle as the recoil is likely to impact on the reticle. The scope mounts must also be fit for purpose.

    No idea on prices for you or the others mentioned - Diana may also be ok as I recall it in air-rifle circles years ago..

    Brother 3X9-40 would be an ideal magnification. Try Red Field with Accu mark which is easy to deal with pallets.

    Zahid bhai this airgun looks like it has been through a lot: there is so much rust on barrel and connecting portions.. btw does it come with latest trigger, and safety switch on back?

    Also welcome to pg!

    The brother is asking for the best airgun not an average one,and secondly there is no difference in parts of diana airgun in Dubai and Pakistan.
