It's just too bad that Dianas are garbage compared Weihrauchs.

Yeah, I'm kidding. I prefer Weihrauchs, but I own a .177 cal Diana 48 and you'd be hard-pressed to get me to part with that squirrel-hammer.
I like the Diana sidelevers a lot. I also have a .22 cal B30, which I originally bought because I couldn't afford a Diana 48.
Then, I found the 48 for $70.00.
Now, if I could find an FWB300 with a LH stock.

i just got a nice hw55 yesterday at our local gun show from a dude who said its just a bb gun sell cheep so out came the money brought her home and cleanes her up then went outside and the old frauline did her strut hit like a dream the quality,workmanship,and finish is unpeckable compared to present day garbage it is in the 1972-3 according to the serial number makes my quest 1000 take a back seat i guess the barrels were hand fitted as the last 4 digits match the serial number love the sights
in 1939 hitler said give up your guns and germany will be a safer place... then a short time after all guns were taken ,he told the jews "board the train" a word in histroy

I would kindly ask to reconsider the allowance of Austrian entries.

Anyway, we Germans, Austrians and most Swiss and northern Italians do speak the same language, and are equally attuned to making fine shooters.

I do like the Forum Category though.

Here's another one. I took on the job of repairing an Umarex Fusion I thought was made by Gamo (the new RONCO?), that's really made by a German company I just found out minutes ago is made in China??? My Winchester 1400cs is made there, as well as my son's Optimus (Crosman), and many others, including the Hammers scopes I like. If we keep sending posts about American, German, etc air rifles to the Asian/Chinese forum, these other forums where the company's are based will get a lot lonelier. And more confusing. I mean, how many folks really research where their new toy actually was built? I'm starting to think that's a lot of nit-picking...

Where would you post a comparison between a German air rifle and one made in another country?

Good question!? Case in point; My latest acquisition, a RWS 320M. $34 out the door! About 10 years old. Bought it off a buddy on my Facebook air gun groups. I created 9, Admin 11 and moderate the 12th. Anyway, he sold me the German marketed Chinese copy of the Weihrauch HW85/95. Some say copy of HW80. Copied the Rekord trigger too. I say darn good rifle for sitting Lord knows how long?!


  It also has the old Apex muzzle brake, but the front screw-in piece is missing? Having trouble finding a new one? You guys have any ideas?

  It even has the RWS stampings!


  And here's the serial number. If this means it's build number 137, then it could be first year, which looks so far to be 2007. The year I retired! How about that? And I'm of German decent, Slovak mother, finally get my first German air rifle and it's made in Northern China! Siest' le vei…

  So, I guess that reads, " B(AM) (model)320M (build number)137"?
