Reply To: Thoughts on RWS Diana 52?
Be careful with your scope selection. I had the RWS variable scope mounted on mine for about a year. The scope is fairly heavy and my scope mount dovetail loosened. The rail is riveted to the receiver and can’t be tightened easily. A wicking grade adhesive held it tight for a few hundred shots after that, but now it’s time to tear it down and come up with a more permanent solution. My gun is very old (pre T-01) but I’ve heard of the same issues with newer models also. It’s not at all common, but still a good reason not to choose a heavy scope.
My Model 52 is a .177. As far as shot cycle and trigger – John in PA installed a Vortec PG-2 kit and tweaked the trigger. The trigger is quite good now and the gun shoots MUCH smoother than stock. It’s running at about 17 FPE.
