Diana model 48 side-lever .177 cal, Leapers 3-9x50 scope.

You should see what it will do to a paper target.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

They sure have,
Theres .40 and .50 caliber models using large CO2 cartridge that could kill a deer, and are legal for deer in some states.

I grew up shooting that same model in the early 70's (I believe it was a model 340). Mine had a blued barrel. I handed it down to my oldest boy. I can't imagine how many rounds I fired with that gun. All three of my boys have air rifles and I'm in the market for another. Some of the modern single stroke rifles are impressive!

Never bothered to take a picture of my Beeman but it is accurate and hits pretty much everything I point it at.
