JoeWayne,

Many thanks for your videos – excellent as always :)

I really don’t know why Diana insisted on spot-welding the ‘gubbins’ (trigger and other action pieces) cages to the bottom of the cylinder.

With the FWBs & Anschutz 250, a couple of bolts and the ‘gubbins’ are off the rifle, leaving a clean cylinder for work, and no need to dissemble the ‘gubbins’ to work on the piston assembly.

In the UK, we have a chappie, Mr. Dave Mercer, who is the acknowledged Guru for fixing these Diana twin-piston rifles & pistols.

I think virtually everybody in the UK (including other gunsmiths) send their Diana’s to Mr. Mercer rather than tackle the work themselves !

Have fun & a good weekend :)

Best regards

Russ
