Hey guys.

I have the opportunity of buying a very good to excellent example of a vintage Gecado/Diana Mod 60.

As many would know, this is an early recoilless break barrel target rifle that uses the "Giss" mechanism to cancel spring surge and recoil.

Being the old school airgun nut that I am, I'm on the verge of grabbing this one! Just wondering if anyone has experience with the model, or any Original/Gecado/Diana guns that use the Giss system of a second opposing piston to cancel recoil?

Tips, problems, or anything to look out for on a second hand gun?
