I finally got a Diana pistol in 22 caliber and I'm one happy guy.
This is made by Diana and branded as a Hy-score 815. It has just been professionally worked on and is in fantastic condition outside and inside.
It's an early 70's model and the condition is fantastic for such an old gun. The bluing looks like it just came out of the factory.
I just got it and will be shooting it shortly so I will let you know how it goes.

Nice gun, in great condition! Good find, you're going to like that one. I'll be curious to hear how it shoots.

I got to take roughly 30 shots with it. Kicks pretty good but is very accurate. I will give it a good test out on the weekend.
The quality of the older guns is incredible. When I first cocked it the barrel moved up and down so freely that I thought there might be some side to side play but there is none. Well built all around.
I used RWS Hobby and H&N Sport pellets tonight. Both grouped excellent when I did my part but some of the H&N's seemed to hit sideways and the Hobby's made all nice holes. I will try some more pellets on the weekend and will order some JSBs since I don't have any in 22.
I'm very happy with it so far. Makes me want another one in any caliber.(hint hint)

I knew one guy who made a page on instagram to post pictures of his gun. He used services like https://zen-promo.com/follow_bot_instagram and reached really big number of followers. But I can't get the sense of this at all.

Nice pistols; big but fun!

Here's mine, a 4.5 mm from 1978:

Got it secondhand. Think I was the first to open it since it left the factory. Good quality, a joy to study the details.

" Big but fun" great description.
I'm having lots of fun with it and am still searching for the right pellet.
They are quite the challenge to shoot though.
