I'm 55 years old and just started to get into air guns. I bought the Diana 240 based on its reviews and price point. It was a good choice. The product has impressive quality for it's price and it's teaching me how to shot. I have a lot to learn and I'm glad I'm doing it with the Diana 240.
ConsFront sight seems a bit flimsy.
Best UsesEntry level gun to introduce yourself to break barrel rifles.

Very Nice Youth Rifle
Purchased this gun for my 6 year old Grandson. The gun has a very nice stock, it cocks very easy, and it's a very accurate little gun. We haven't put a scope on it yet just using the open sights but it's not a problem shooting tins at 25 yards with the open sights. The very fine windage and elevation adjustments make it very easy to sight in. The fiber optic sights are very easy to see I do wish the front fiber optic was a bit smaller in diameter. The trigger is surprisingly nice for a gun in this price range as well. All and all this makes a very nice youth rifle.
ProsFiber optic sights - Nice trigger - Easy cocking - Very accurate - Nice looking stock
ConsFront fiber optic sight could be smaller in diameter
Best UsesPlinking and target practice

Nice gun for the money
The wood and metal were nicely finished.
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.
ProsValue for the dollar.
Fit and finish.
Accurate barrel with iron sights.
AGD customer service.
Lockup detente spring not easily serviced.
Best UsesNice gun for adolescents or smaller adults, but fun for everyone.
Informal target shooting.
Small pest control.

Great gun with a few flaws
I bought this to replace my/sons HW30 that was reclaimed by son.
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.

Ideal plinker & informal target rifle
Easy to shoot well,and after about 300 shots operates smoothly. It was purchased for our basement Bell Target Range, using RWS Superdomes it's a little better than perfect. Proving to be a decent backyard plinker with a variety of pellets,too. It's quiet and isn't hold sensitive.
ProsFit and finish is amazing for a rifle in this price range,flawless!

Best airgun I've ever had. This is perfect for closer range fun shooting without the accuracy problems associated with high power spring piston airguns. Cocking effort is a dream too. It's more than powerful enough for short to medium ranges; with all the newer "hot" lightweight ammo you can probably get 600fps on a regular basis when you want it. How nice would it be if Diana would do a cut down Kar98; 6 pounds, 550 fps...that would be perfect! Hint hint ...
