I have owned a Diana Model 24 for several years now, along with many other Diana and HW Rifles. I always come back to this rifle for accuracy and ease of shooting. For target shooting 30 yards and under, it has no peer. It is a better fit than the R-7 and just as accurate in my opinion. It is my favorite rifle and one that I will always keep.

I bought my sleek little RWS Model 24 in 2002. I no longer see this rifle for sale with domestic air gun vendors. My

Model 24 exudes typical German quality. It is easy to shoot

this rifle all day because the cocking effort is light. It

is an accurate rifle, capable of busting shatterblast targets set out 30 yards away. The finish is dark and even. The plain beech stock is smooth and well finished. The barrel is well rifled and bright. The new HW30S I recently purchased at Pyramyd Air duplicates the fine qualities of the Model 24 in a better finished package. Although I have many springers, the Model 24 has endeared itself to me because it possesses these qualities: fun to shoot,accurate, light weight, low cocking effort, high quality.

No mechanical problems after 2,000 rounds.

Have had the QB 51 for awhile now and it should be broken in. Not the most exciting rifle to shoot but fun. Like the fellow mentioned about the .22 version it is quiet, almost a dead sound. It has a leather piston cup. With the Gamo Hunter pellet I get 525 fps. (I just found out that the Gamo Hunter is not 8.4 gr as advertised, but 7.4 gr. No wonder they always had a higher velocity for me.) It is pretty accurate. I shoot 20 yard target and it does just fine with most pellets. The trigger pull was awful at 16 pound pull, yes 16. I took the rifle apart and cleaned and polished everything. The spring would drag on the guide and I polished that until it slid free. Polished the trigger with a Dremel tool, both pieces where they meet. They were so rough a fingernail would catch on them. And would you believe I now have a pull of just two pounds. A delite to shoot now, as before my finger hurt after a session. Best price at South Summit.. I have other pellet guns and consider this one just something different to shoot once in awhile, and over 500 fps is not to bad… F Nash
