A lot of bang for the buck!
Once again AoA has put together a really great little Diana combo. The first one I purchased was the AM03 Stealth N-TEC combo, which proved to be so good that when I saw they had another one in their pre-owned section I told my buddy to snatch it up quickly (he did and loves it, too)!

This 430L combo is also really well put together and the price is amazing when you consider that the scope and mount alone would run you $192.00! When thought of in those terms, the rifle itself is only $78! I'm here to tell you that this is NOT a $78 "cheapo/budget" rifle. It is very high quality for the outlay. Is it a HW98? No, of course not. What it is, though, is a very well balanced, accurate, German made fixed-barrel hunting/pesting rifle. Its power level makes this a perfect rifle for squirrel/rabbit hunting in the woods. Mine has taken several of our state's endearing, yet hated pack rats on my property. They are terribly destructive creatures and this rifle makes dispatching them not only a breeze, but a pleasure. The last one was a head shot at 35 yards standing supported against a wall. If you need more accuracy than that for this price, then I don't know what to tell you.

Mine came with some pretty good looking wood and I have found the loading port to be generously sizeable for loading, even with my clumsy fingers. The trigger is the awesome T06 2-stage and has been upgraded to metal along with the safety. The cocking effort is, honestly, stiff but manageable. It's also a little heavy for the size and power to be carrying all day, but if you put a shotgun sling on it you won't know the difference.

All of the parts AoA has put together in this combo compliment each other very well. Being a moderately powered rifle (12ftp), the scope's magnification range is just about perfect for the distances that this rifle is made for and includes a parallax adjustment up front. The Diana Zero Recoil Mount included is really a very well thought-out and designed bit of kit and not at all a gimmick. I have several of these on my airguns and have had very good luck with them keeping firearms designed scopes from dying a horrible death on magnum springers.

I am constantly seeing posts on FB airgun groups asking for a decently priced springer for squirrels/pesting and I always suggest to them the Diana 430L combo from AoA. I think you would be hard-pressed to find a combo of this quality, accuracy, and that instills pride of ownership in this price range. It really is one of the hidden gems out there.

Diana 430L combo review
I switched to the 430L combo at the last moment when it was on sale for $259 . I wanted something accurate! First the pros. This gun is accurate, at least to the 30yrds I’ve tested. I need to take it somewhere I can get further, the scope is clear and bright and the bulls eye mount has spring, after I mounted the second time. Gun looks great, we’ll made with big area to get thumb in to load pellet.
The cons: heavy gun, and has a heavy pull to the caulking lever, I hope this gets lighter with time, not a small kids gun for sure. Had trouble with the mount at first install, it did not recoil so I uninstalled and reinstalled and working now. I need have to make shims to be able to zero in the scope but hitting within 1/4” at 30yrds on rest.
I’ve neyhad a break barrel so I thought the under barrel would stay true . Happy so far. Did I say this gun is heavy

nice rifle, but
Fit, finish, stock all very nice. The issue I had was the enormous cocking effort required for a less than 12 ft/lb rifle. Not an all day plinker unless you're King Kong, not a sub-adult rifle. I dumped mine, quickly.
