Looks like the Diana 240, probably one of the least expensive MADE IN GERMANY guns still available, is being made offshore. The Diana website shows a new name(two-forty vs 240)a subtly different picture of a 240(new one looks to have a single arrestor hole), no longer has a T05 trigger but most importantly, no longer says on the product page MADE IN GERMANY like before. Any bets on China, or at the least , Turkey

I would be guessing China, since they have been shopping at Snow Peak lately.
My guess is they will end up like Umarex, mostly, if not completely, reselling products made by other companies for them.

When you know for sure .. let us know .. otherwise what is your point .. because seriously ... saying "it looks like" means squat. Truth matters.

The Two-Fifty and Two-Sixty are made in China. I can't find anything on the Two-Forty. It will be on the end of the tube if anyone finds a good photo.

FWIW, I just received a Diana 470TH which has "MADE IN GERMANY DE 2015".

It suggests the question: Was it made in 2015 and in stock for 5 years? Doesn't matter to me but interesting. I will see if Diana has information regarding build date from that or the serial number (on the barrel).

I wouldn't be surprised that they stock their airguns until they sell, why not if they stay in like-new condition? I'd rather buy ''NOS'' high-quality products than offshore-made brand-new ones. Grab'em while you can! I just bought a .177 Diana 240 T05 made in Germany, marked DE2019, lovely rifle BTW. I can only wish Diana will keep a series of airguns made in Germany, that would be quite sad to see that disappear.

Also I bought two brand-new Weihrauch rifles from D&L in summer of 2018. According to the Weihrauch database, my HW35E was made in 2014 and my HW85 made in 2016. Just hoping Weihrauch will not follow the same path as Diana.
