Ruth at Air Gun Depot was very knowledgeable and helpful when I had a question.
This is now my favorite air gun.
Shoot about 250 pellets, take it apart, clean and re-lube to my specs, polish critical parts, add a thin sleeve for the spring guide, touch up seal, debur and soften sharp edges, polished a couple of trigger parts, re-crown barrel to my liking, bed stock with my special foam, CLP the ball detent spring (IMPORTANT), lube other pivoting parts, [NO DINO LUBE IN/AROUND/NEAR COMPRESSION CHAMBER!!!], Vibratite all the screws, go to sleep - it's 1:00 AM.
Wake up, shoot 50 more pellets, get chrono reads, mount UTG 4x32AO scope using RWS drooper mount, shoot 200 more, solve scope mount moving [just buy a good BKL mount and forget the stop pins - don't ask], test pellets, test stock torque values, back and forth, test barrel hinge torque values. Study pellet patterns and behavior, guesstimate harmonic curve (part art, part science), settle on final pellet and stock torque (JSB Exact RS - 10 in-lb front and rear), make final tweaks, shoot final groups, go inside because it's pretty much dark.
Final groups with JSB Exact RS were 2x 2-shot groups at 13 yards that both came in around .14"followed by 1x 2-shot group at 18 yards that was around .4", NOT adjusted for a 6 MPH cross-wind. Sorry I couldn't shoot more, but it was dark. However, this is pretty representative of what I was seeing all day while I was tuning.
Love it. Very happy and will enjoy the reduced weight shooting indoor silhouette.
(oil)and wiped it down. I could clearly see a finger print in rust. Most of the rust came off, although it still "feels" rough where the finger print was. As the photos show, there is some pitting on the barrel that was hidden by the stock. Unfortunately, that damage cannot be fixed with oil and a cloth. I don't know where these were stored, but they have a moisture of humidity problem. I have not fired it yet. Seems like a cute little rifle. I'm going to do a more detailed review on my favorite form.
T05 trigger was crisp, although a bit heavier than the T06 or Rekord.
Smooth cocking and lively shot cycle without being too jumpy.
Power was near factory specs.
Little or no twang.
Good groups with the iron sights.
Lots of good points about this gun for the money, but mine had a flaw in the lockup causing vertical stringing when scoped. AGD customer service was excellent and provided a return shipping label.
Although my 240 had a problem and I decided to upgrade to something more costly, the 240 has enough good points that I wouldn't steer someone away if they wanted to try one. AGD customer service will make things right if there is an issue.
Super trigger, equal to a match trigger, easy to cock, easy to shoulder, accurate as you would expect a Diana to be. Power is as you would expect (low) but fine for plinking.
THe downside for a back door gun, hard plastic butt plate ,plastic front site cover ,broke soon after receiving. Butt slid on hard floor, ergo broken front sight cover.
I have been buying from Airgun Depot for a few years now and they always take good care of me, quick shipping and well packed.
