    Well here’s the second part of my video where I use the tools the guys who ACTUALLY KNOW how these go together helped me with. Unfortunately its as far as I got . Hate to admit it , but between not doing it before and seeing it come apart ….And Mainly my crummy eyesight I couldn’t get it together .. I would REALLY like to thank the guys who helped me Ken, OC , Steve , and Art with this project . Wadcutter here on AGN very Graciously offered to complete it for me , but I think ill just wait and pass it on , there’s a guy wanting it as is . Thanks Steve a TON for such a nice gesture !!!!! I did manage to put together a video that I hope will help someone else on down the line , and the stock came out nice … I Hate losing a fight, but it won’t be the first time as my eye patch can attest to :) . Anyway here’s the video .

    I can understand taking on a challenge just because it’s a challenge.  But the design of that gun is stupidly complex.  Makes you wonder why they ever made it.

    Oh man, you were right there.
    Air rifles are a lot like women. When you have one that is a pain in the rump, sometimes it best to pass her on to next fellow.
    Too bad you live 900 miles away instead of 9. Would have enjoyed hammering on that thing over a cold IPA.

    Hey, where’s the stock pics?

    At least you gave it a try Joe and I’d bet you were probably closer than you thought. It wasn’t a complete loss though, outstanding job on the stock.

    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
