1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I like the look of this Diana side lever and have seen one for sale second hand, Its a 177 and looks tidy but I think it's a bit pricey. What would you think is a fair second hand price [gun only]

    kent,
    hello dave, I have the model 52 .177, same action just has the better stock, these are not
    cheap to buy new (the 52 is about £460.00 from BAR, and can be hard to source at times,
    good rifles had mine since 1989, built like a tank great quality and I find it very accurate,
    downside is weight, but most top end under/sidelever are heavy gotta be looking at £200
    I expect for the smaller cal. although seen .22 go for less. depending on age which trigger
    condition ect ( personally I would not mine go that cheap )

    I have a original model 52, 20 years old nice gun heavey, built like a tank, bit of a kick, shoots well 50 yards no problem. there about 450 new i would imagine a much older one would possibly be better quality than a new one ? dont know about 2nd hand price though try google

    Thanks for the reply George I thought £200 - £250 but they are asking £350 which is to strong for me. I don't think there much more new.

    Depends on condition for me, 48 models are cheaper due to plain stock usually, 48/52 with better stock are more .
    Forum prices 48/52 for a tidy rifle 150 ish,excellent condition 200 .
    350 is silly. I know of one for sale at that price it's been sitting on the rack in the same shop a very long time.
    If it is the one I know about it came in with a t h stock from one of Diana's latest side leavers. I think the stock went one way the rifle the other in a different stock.

    Well it's horses for courses innit Dave. If you buy a Diana, you are buying quality, that is a fact, even though some on here may disagree, the build quality is very good indeed. If you like a traditional heavyish rifle, you can't go wrong really. Don't take too much notice of Gixxer, he a well known skinflint!:D Seriously though, if the rifle is in very good condition, and has been well maintained???? It might pay you to make an offer?

    If it has a walnut stock.

    Not sure if you know the date the rifle was made ?

    New price back in 1990 was £123.99

    IDE rather spend another 100.00 and buy the classic from lawrance bamfords or atleast work a deal on it closer to its value .

    I worked on a 52 for a customer this week. I was surprised how civilised it was after a bit of work for such a large capacity gun. You gotta love a sidelever!:D

    Very happy to be corrected, but I don't ever recall seeing a Diana with a walnut stock?

    A side lever is ideal for me, I don't even need to lift it off the bench rest to cock it:cool:

    I have a mate trying to sell one in a really fancy thumbhole walnut stock at the moment. I too prefer the sidelever, but underlever is the new black!
