Thumbs up New Old Diana 75 competition air rifle

Hey All,

Just picked up a well used Diana 75 T01 from Ebutt. Its in the mail so dont have it yet. Anyone here have any experience with precision 10m rifles like this? Seller said it functions properly, just a little worn cosmetically.

Seeing as how its prolly 30+ years old I bought it as more of a project & would like to rebuild/referb it to heirloom status. I can refresh the wood, looking more for leads on who can rebuild/re-blue the metal bits. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.


Pics will follow when I get it.

Thumbs up

Here's a link to the GTA thread I started on it- pics are there to I'm getting the stock hydro-dipped, then when that gets back I'm sending her off to get rebuilt/ re-blued.

Man, the bug has bit. I also just picked up an AA TX200 HC in walnut. The thing is wicked accurate & beautiful. I did not realize how exceptional the higher end guns are. Was never interested in the cheapo wallmart plastic ��, so I never really looked any further.

I am now looking for a quality target air pistol for 10 meter & silhouette.

I really like the old rifles. I have a Diana 100, it shoots great.
The 75 should be equal in accuracy. I think you will find the biggest difference in the pellets you shoot, so if you don't get the results you want. Try a different pellet brand, & weight. FYI: Ice cubes make good outside targets.

Nice looking rifle and rebuild! Glad you posted the hydro dipped stock. I thought the pattern would come out sharper based on what I've seen online.

Default Great score

I have Diana 100, beautiful, & accurate.
Once you find the rite pellet it will give you amazing groups.
Post a picture of some of your shot groups.
