    Diana series 70 model 78

    I've just been gifted the above...yet to be seen.
    Are they worthy of restoration...not value wise, but joy of shooting?

    Cheer Steve

    I'd rate them much the same as a meteor.. but with less pedigree. Decent plinkers / short range hunters.
    I'm currently looking for: crosman pumper spares (1322/1377/2289), a 2250/2260 main tube & valve, 25mm scope mounts to suit a 13mm BSA maxgrip, any thin drinking straw barrels (any cal), and any cheap, interesting, knackered project guns. Thanks, JB.

    Many thanks....I can see it being further down on my list of Projects in that case.
    Cheers Steve

    I've got a BSA Cadet, which I've had for over 45 years that I said I'd restore one day....the trouble is....it doesn't really hold any interest.
    If I wasn't a hoarder may be I'd have let it go years ago....

    I have a Series 70 Model 71. Its quite reasonable quality but maybe the worst trigger of any air rifle that I own by far!
