No other gun shows the power, the accuracy as well as the elegance of this svelte woman.
22-24 ft-lbs yields are the norm, plus accuracies well within moment of rabbit; -) in 70 yards are not unusual.
So , when a friend inquired me to take a look in to her gun because the bending linkage had failed, and she decided to take the chance to have the gun set-up with regard to iron sights I was a lot more than intrigued.
As things proceed these days, we had to wait for more than 4 months to get the aftermarket to repair the gun (on warranty from DIANA), however in the end they came and got the repair carried out swiftly.
We-took advantage of installing a customized guide made for the OE springs.
OE DIANA springs are fairly good. They are powerful plus consistent. But the molded instructions leave something to be preferred. A guide turned to the proper measurements will quell the spring’s longitudinal vibrations, and reduce the particular twang and the buzz.
Normally I would not really tackle a “partial” melody, but since this was really a “repair”, it really was not a problem to become flexible.
Once the guide has been installed and checked, the particular gun was chronoed with almost 23 ft-lbs with all the JSB Exact Jumbo (15. 89 grs in five. 52 mm’s). No twang, no buzz.
And once the particular uniformity of the MV’s had been established (SD’s of a few and 4 fps), we all proceeded to change the front view for something more helpful with a peep.
In the end, we chose to use the Firesight.
Then we drifted front side sight in (always directly to left).
Williams GR base, Int’l in order to Williams adapter made by Gehman, then the Sinclair / AOS Microsight, and then the Gehman Iris adjustable “stop”.
It is worth note that the AG foundation is too high for this program and to keep a very reduced LOS, corresponding to the OE design of the stock.
Really interesting weapons, these 460’s.
Keep nicely and shoot straight!
