    I know I said no more airguns. Just bought a Diana N-TEC Classic .177 from AOA.  I just couldn't pass it up on sale with free shipping.  Jared tells me they are a joy to shoot.  Said they shoot on par with Weihrauch and better at farther distances with the added power.

    It's okay,  we all get it . . . 
    And you did the right thing by admitting that you have a problem.. 
    That's the first step.  Or at least that's what they say..  hahaha  

    Very cool,  that's a really nice lookin' springer! 
    They're a blast to shoot for sure.  Have fun and enjoy!

    Nice rifle. Can't speak on the .177 but I've had a .22 since they hit stateside, , paid full price back then, so this is a DEAL. Had a warranty glitch in the early days of owning, the gas piston / strut lost some power, I phoned Umarex and talked the fellow into sending me a strut without me sending the gun back. I paid up front for the strut and installed it myself then sent the bad strut back for reimbursement.

    Another "tip" I will offer,,, (and I would doubt Diana has made any technical engineering change) …. When loading the pellet, pay attention to make certain the pellet is pressed in deep enough. With the mating surfaces of the breech being slightly angled, I (and other owners) found that the lower area of the pellet skirt was not consistently (my fault) deep enough and becoming damaged upon closing the barrel which caused frustrating erratic accuracy. I decided to slightly chamfer the barrel / chamber which allowed for easier more consistent loading with my fingers.

    To the member asking about rear sight, it is metal, I only shoot by scope and removed both of my sights – replaced front with a home-made moderator – cocking handle.

    Enjoy the new rifle.

    All I'm gonna say is: I called you out on that the second you said you were done buying guns! 

    While I'm not too interested in the RAM guns, I do think the folk over at Diana knocked it the hell out of the park with that stock design. It really is sweet looking. Hope she does well for you, keep us posted.

    @rwsx3 Is that barrel threaded for a moderator? Or did you use a different method of attaching yours? Thanks!

    Not threaded. Pulled off the sight and slipped on my own made handle / moderator.
