The RWS Model 24 Dana .177 is a piece of superb craftsmanship and makes a Ruger 10/22 look like a cheaply made rifle in comparison. It's not fair to compare a .22 to a .177 air rifle, but the Model 24 also came in .22. My grandpa owned this version. Same gun, slightly lower velocity due to the larger projectile, but still I give this gun top marks for a residential use plinker/varmit gun. Though the model 24 is considerably lower velocity than the model 34, the model 34 will punch holes through… Read Full Review

I've had my RWS 24 model Diana for 15-20 years and have always had great fun and superb accuracy with it. (The picture and info on the websites are exactly the same as mine). It's a great 1st gun and loads of accurate fun now that I'm old too. haha. Still looks and performs like new. If you're looking for a great 1st airgun for target and or small pests for you or a responsible teenager, just buy one of these! You won't look back… Read Full Review

I've had my RWS (Diana in Italy) mod. 24 for two and half years without any major problem. It's very good for informal plinking, but also for solving a pest problem in your backyard. My tip is to avoid heavy pellets: after testing many types, I found that the 6.8 gr. RWS Geco flat point are the most fit for this carabine, both in terms of velocity and accuracy. If I wanted to buy a low-price springer now, I would choose it again… Read Full Review

I got RWS 24 this when I was 16 instead of a car but I have had more fun with it and it has lasted longer then any car I would have gotten.
This is the rifle that got me into shooting and has helped me to become the great shot I am.
I'm in my 30's so its going on 16 years old now. I have a daughter and will pass it on to her when she is old enough.
I do not know excatly how many shots I have through it but I can only guess it is in the 100,000s. It still going with out a hiccup.
This rifle… Read Full Review

I have been wanting an air rifle to get rid of unwanted birds in my backyard, sparrows and grackles. First gun I bought was a Crosman 800 Quest After several hundred rounds with Crosman it was time to take it back because of poor accuracy. Then I purchased a Beeman Bear which had a lower muzzle volicity but that was ok because of my populated area. Mistake number two. Then tried the Daisy 1000, if was to give the Daisy a chance It probably would of worked out but it sounded liked a 22… Read Full Review

I got my Diana M24 .177cal a few weeks ago to go with my .22cal M24 which I've had for about three years now. Both of them have T05's and are the same other than caliber. The .177 version was accurate and smooth right out of the box, just like the .22 version. I shot a wide variety of pellets with different head shapes and weights from 25-60 feet with excellent results, JSB Exacts 4.52 were absolute tack drivers. The JSB's are also excellent in .22cal. Neither rifle had even a hint of "twang"… Read Full Review

I have owned the RWS 24 rifle for about two years, and it has lived up to what I expected from this great airgun company. The only thing that bothered me is that whoever assembled the gun stripped one of the stock screws, and just left it. That doesn't sound like RWS quality control to me. Anyway it was easy enough to fix since the threads in the receiver were still around. After that it was smooth sailing. The rifle really shoots quite well for lower end Diana, the trigger may be plastic but… Read Full Review

I bought a "package" with a Diana RWS 24 Air Rifle and a pre-installed scope. I was very surprised by it's accuracy from the very first shot I took. Seems like it needed no breaking in, no noise at all and no smoke. It's very easy to cock and handling, extremely accurate; with the scope I can get 1 inch-groupings from 30-40 ft. It has only a light recoil probably due to it's velocity at 700 ft/sec but for plinking and shooting pest-birds, it's quite sufficient. It has a soft and very nice… Read Full Review

I purchased a Diana 24 .22 and cronographed it at 442.3 right out of the box. This should increase after I have put 1000 pellets through it and bring it closer to the 500 fps Canadian FAC limit… Read Full Review

I have owned this RWS 24 Air Rifle for probably 9 or 10 years in .177 cal (I don't remember how old I was when I got the gun for christmas, but the manufactured date on my rifle was 1993. I don't think I've had it for 11 years...though I may have). It has held up very well and nothing has worn out. I have never cleaned or serviced this gun in all the time I have owned it and it's accuracy is still amazing, limited only by its range as the trajectory drops off. As a little boy I used to… Read Full Review

I bought my Diana 24 in .22cal last summer and found it to be a easy handling quick to the shoulder spring rifle with good jump shooting characteristics. Up to 15-20 yds its accuracy was so impeccable I did not bother mounting a scope. Accuracy hovered around an inch even at 20yds with both Super H-points and Gamo Hunter roundheads unfortunately the low velocity(430-450fps) didn't give me the confidence to take rabbits at that distance(20yds) Headshots on crows with an H-point were very… Read Full Review

I have the RWS 24 Model 24 in .177 and it's a great gun. I use it for plinking in the backyard and general target practice since it's not very loud. It's capable of taking out small to medium size birds but wouldn't recommend it for anything larger. When you hold it you can tell it's well engineered and meant to last you a long time. I wouldn't trade it no matter how many rifles I acquire. It's plain, simple and perfect… Read Full Review
