Well Guys....
I caught the fever. :cool:
See my previous post "Used Diana"
Went back tonight and grabbed the Model 52 -.177, I mentioned.
After reading up on it and getting the 34 zeroed in to drive tacks in my barn. I couldn't get the 52 out of my mind. Looking at what they sell for ($200-300?) and never having had a side-cocker, I offered $100 like the 34.
LGS Owner said "sure". :D
Now I just have to figure what the side cock design is all about.
Grab another weaver rail and figure out what optics to put on - although the irons are pretty decent.
I'm thinking with the short, heavy, fixed barrel - it outta be pretty accurate like its brother 34.
So, thanks to this, and other, Air Gun Forums - the safe just got more crowded!
Haven't shot it yet, will give it the once over, as it came from an Estate Sale, so any suggestions or tips are welcome.
You might have created a monster...love the cheap plinking in these days of ammo drought.

Wow, you got a smoking deal. No way would our local store go below $275 for one of those.

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you bought a model 52 for $100 - price one on pyramid air. Great air rifle, very accurate once you determine the pellet it "likes". Great find!

Blessings
