5. Closing the Barrel
BREAK-BARREL
Firmly grasp the barrel behind the front sight, return
the barrel to its original closed and latched position.
UNDER-LEVER
IMPORTANT: Before returning the under-lever to its
original position, firmly grasp the cocking lever and
DEPRESS THE COCKING SAFETY LEVER (see Illustration 4b) located on the right side of the cylinder. Close
the cocking lever to its original position. NOTE: There
should be NO pressure on cocking lever when returning
it to original position. If there is pressure, the air rifle
has not been fully cocked.
SIDE-LEVER
Before returning the side lever to its original position,
depress the cocking safety lever (see Illustration 4c) on
the left side of the cylinder. Grasp the side-lever, close
to its original position. NOTE: There should be NO pressure on cocking lever when returning it to original position. If there is pressure, the air rifle has not been fully
cocked.
UNDER-LEVER MODELS ONLY: To prevent the cocking
lever from falling out of the lever holder underneath the
front sight do the following: Make sure the air rifle is
UNLOADED and UNCOCKED. Now, tighten the small
screw underneath the muzzle to increase the tension
on the cocking lever retaining ball. Look at the screw
from an angle and never look directly into the muzzle
of the air rifle. If this does not correct the problem then
proceed in this sequence: Make certain the air rifle is
UNLOADED and UNCOCKED. Disengage cocking lever
from underneath front sight, loosen set screw on top
side of front sight, place a piece of soft wood on muzzle end of front sight and then using a hammer VERY
LIGHTLY tap the wood to seat the sight completely
down on the barrel. Retighten the set screw on top side
of front sight. If the cocking lever seats too tight after
completing this process you may need to slightly loosen
the small screw underneath the muzzle to decrease the
tension on the cocking lever retaining ball.

CAUTION
BE CAREFUL TO KEEP FINGERS CLEAR OF COCKING
MECHANISIM (SEE “PINCH POINTS”, ILLUSTRATION
4C, 5A AND 5B). GRASP THE BARREL FIRMLY AS YOU
COCK IT AND CLOSE IT TO PREVENT IT FROM SNAPPING BACK AND POSSIBLY CAUSING INJURY.

6. Aiming at a Safe Target
Always aim your air rifle in a SAFE DIRECTION. Always choose your target carefully. It is best to shoot
at a paper bullseye target which is attached to a safe
backstop. A heavy blanket should be hung behind the
target backstop to prevent ricochet should you miss the
backstop. Think about what you will hit if you miss the
target.
SOME DIANA AIR RIFLES have open sights. Air rifles
with this type of sight are correctly aimed when the
front sight blade is positioned exactly in the notch of
the rear sight. The top of the front sight blade should
be even with the top of the notch in the rear sight. The
bullseye should appear to rest on the top of the front
sight (see Illustration 6).
Illustration 6
CAUTION
YOUR BACKSTOP SHOULD BE INSPECTED FOR WEAR
BEFORE AND AFTER EACH USE. DISCONTINUE USE IF
THE BACKSTOP SURFACE SHOWS SIGNS OF FAILURE.
ALWAYS PLACE THE BACKSTOP IN A LOCATION THAT
WILL BE SAFE SHOULD THE BACKSTOP FAIL. DISCONTINUE THE USE OF A BACKSTOP IF THE PROJECTILE
REBOUNDS OR RICOCHETS.

WARNING
BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR AIR RIFLE “OFF SAFE”, BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THAT YOUR AIR RIFLE IS POINTED
IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND THAT YOU ARE READY TO
FIRE. ONCE YOUR AIR RIFLE IS COCKED AND AUTOMATICALLY “ON SAFE”, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO
PUT IT BACK “ON SAFE” UNLESS YOU RE-COCK THE
AIR RIFLE. DO NOT RECOCK THE AIR RIFLE WHILE IT IS
LOADED TO PUT IT BACK “ON SAFE”.
7. Firing Your Air Rifle
When you are absolutely sure your air rifle is aimed at
a safe target and you are ready to fire, put your air rifle
“OFF SAFE” (see STEP 2. OPERATING THE SAFETY).
Squeeze the trigger.
WARNING
IF A PELLET DOES NOT FIRE AFTER COMPLETING THE
OPERATION STEPS, THE AIRGUN MAY BE JAMMED.
AN UNFIRED PROJECTILE IN THE BARREL CAN BE A
DANGEROUS SITUATION. KEEP THE AIRGUN POINTED
IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND REPEAT ALL OPERATION
STEPS EXCEPT STEP 3. IF A PROJECTILE STILL DOES
NOT FIRE, DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. Make sure airgun is pointed in a safe direction.
2. Cock the airgun and leave the barrel open with the
safety in the “ON SAFE” position.
3. Clear barrel by inserting a cleaning rod through the
muzzle end.
4. Repeat operation steps.
NOTE: Many factors affect airgun performance and velocity, including brand of projectile, lubrication, barrel
condition and temperature.
WARNING
NEVER ASSUME THAT BECAUSE THE AIRGUN NO LONGER FIRES A PROJECTILE THAT A PROJECTILE IS NOT
LODGED IN THE BARREL. ALWAYS TREAT THE AIRGUN
AS THOUGH IT IS LOADED AND WITH THE SAME RESPECT YOU WOULD A FIREARM.
10
CAUTION
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REUSE FIRED PELLETS OR PELLETS WHICH ARE DEFORMED. PROJECTILES SUCH AS
STEEL SHOT (BBS) AND DARTS MAY DAMAGE YOUR
AIR RIFLE AND CAUSE INJURY TO YOURSELF OR BYSTANDERS DUE TO RICOCHETING, AND WILL VOID
THE WARRANTY.
WARNING
LEAD PELLETS CONTAIN LEAD, A CHEMICAL KNOWN
TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER
AND BIRTH DEFECTS OR OTHER REPRODUCTIVE
HARM. DO NOT INHALE DUST OR PUT LEAD PELLETS
IN MOUTH. WASH HANDS AFTER HANDLING. KEEP

RIFLE), point the air rifle in a SAFE DIRECTION, put
the air rifle in the “OFF SAFE” position and squeeze
the trigger to fire.
2. Break the barrel open slightly (without pulling the barrel all the way down to the point that it cocks) and look
down the breech to see if the air rifle is jammed (see
Illustration 9). NEVER LOOK DOWN THE MUZZLE.
3. If the air rifle is still jammed, with the barrel opened
slightly, insert a correct caliber ramrod into the muzzle and push the jammed pellet out. Do not try to reuse that pellet. If you are not able to unjam your air
rifle, contact your dealer.
11. Care and Maintenance
CAUTION
BEFORE ANY CARE, CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE, ALWAYS BE SURE YOUR AIRGUN IS UNLOADED. KEEP
POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. IT IS IMPORTANT TO
PERFORM ROUTINE INSPECTIONS AND MAINTAIN
YOUR AIRGUN PROPERLY.
CAUTION
NEVER STORE A LOADED OR COCKED AIRGUN. Unload pellet from the airgun. Keep air rifle away from
children and untrained shooters. Store pellets separately from the air rifle to keep them from untrained shooters. Protect your air rifle from moisture and dirt; clean
airgun and wrap it in a smooth, dry cloth. If you are
going to store your airgun for an extended length of
time be sure the barrel is protected. Always use a soft
cloth and insert the cleaning rod from the breech end
on break barrel rifles. Remove the oil completely before
the next use. REMEMBER: Always check to see that the
airgun is unloaded when getting from storage or from
another person. With care and routine inspections your
airgun will provide many sessions of shooting enjoyment. Abuse, neglect and continued exposure to the elements will impair the performance of any airgun.
14
Your DIANA Air Rifle is designed to fire caliber .177 or
.22 pellets only.
We recommend the use of DIANA Pellets because of
their superb accuracy and dimensional uniformity. The
correct caliber is clearly indicated on the rifle.
CAUTION
NEVER DRY FIRE YOUR AIR RIFLE. IF THE AIR RIFLE IS
FIRED WITHOUT A LEAD PELLET IT WILL CAUSE THE
PISTON TO BOTTOM OUT IN THE CYLINDER WHICH
CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE THE AIR RIFLE.
CAUTION
CHECK THE TIGHTNESS OF THE STOCK SCREWS BETWEEN, DURING, AND AFTER SHOOTING ACTIVITY.
LOOSE SCREWS MAY CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.
CAUTION
OILS THAT CONTAIN ACID OR RESIN CAN DAMAGE
SEALS AND POSSIBLY THE FINISH OF THE AIRGUN.
WARNING
AN AIRGUN THAT IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY MAY
BE DANGEROUS. IT SHOULD BE KEPT SAFELY FROM
USE BY ANYONE UNTIL REPAIRED OR DESTROYED. DO
NOT TRY TO TAKE THE AIRGUN APART. IT IS DIFFICULT
TO REASSEMBLE AND IMPROPER DISASSEMBLY OR
REASSEMBLY CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR
DEATH.
WORKING PARTS
The working parts (piston
and mainspring) require
very little lubrication. Two
(2) drops every 1000 shots
will suffice. It is easily applied through the compression chamber port with a
3 1/2" applicator needle (see
Illustrations 10a and 10b).
The wearing surfaces at the
barrel hinge, the cocking
arm, and the trigger mech-
Illustration 10a
Illustration 10b
15
Operation Manual EN
anism should be lubricated
with oil (see illustration 11).
Mainsprings should be oiled
every 1000 shots with drops
Illustration 11
of oil (see illustrations 12a
and 12b). Remember, a little
is good – a lot is not better.
BARREL: In day to day use,
very little dirt or residue
will accumulate in the bore.
Illustration 12a
During periods of regular
use the bore of the barrel
should be cleaned periodically by means of a felt wad or
cleaning rod with wool mop.
Insert rod from breech end,
Illustration 12b
do not remove barrel seal.
SURFACE: The exposed metal parts (receiver, screw heads, trigger, etc.) are a gun
blue finish and MUST be wiped clean using a slightly
oiled cloth after handling to prevent rust. Use light acid
free and resin free oil.
12. Reviewing Safety
• You and others with you MUST always wear shooting
glasses to protect your eyes. If you wear reading glasses
the lenses must be certified for impact resistance or you
should wear safety glasses intended for use over normal
optical reading glasses.
• Always aim in a SAFE DIRECTION. Always keep the
muzzle of the airgun pointed in a SAFE DIRECTION.
• Always keep your finger off the trigger and out of the
trigger guard until ready to shoot.
• Never point the airgun at anything you do not intend to
shoot.
• Never point an airgun at people or pets.
• Always treat the airgun as though it is loaded and with
the same respect you would a firearm.
• Never look down the barrel of an airgun.
• Always keep the airgun uncocked and unloaded until you
are ready to shoot.
• Always check to see if the airgun is uncocked and unloaded when getting it from another person or from storage.
16
• Never leave a loaded airgun unattended.
• Use only the proper size and type of projectile as it is
marked on the airgun.
• Never reuse ammunition.
• Do not shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water.
The projectile may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone
or something you had not intended to hit.
• Do not shoot at fragile objects such as windows.
• Place the backstop in a location that will be safe should
the backstop fail.
• Your backstop should be checked for wear before and after each use. All backstops are subject to wear and will
eventually fail. Replace your backstop if the surface is
worn or damaged or if a ricochet occurs.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or tamper with your airgun. Unauthorized repairs or modifying the function of
your airgun in any way may be unsafe and will void your
warranty.
• Before you store or transport your airgun, make sure it is
unloaded and is uncocked.
• Always store your airgun in a secure location away from
unauthorized users and separate from ammunition.
• Only persons who are thoroughly familiar with the airgun’s function and proper use and who are allowed by
law should handle the airgun.
• Always wear safety shooting glasses when shooting or
performing maintenance on airguns.
• Only shoot where permitted by law.
CAUTION
THE COMPONENTS OF THIS AIRGUN WERE ENGINEERED
AND MANUFACTURED TO DELIVER OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE. ANY MODIFICATION OR TAMPERING WITH AN
