After reading Hector's review, I bought a couple of 430Ls and a 240 recently.
Each cost $150 ... couldn't resist the deals.
From top: 430L with Diana ZR-Mount and CenterPoint 3-12X44 PLT, Diana 240, 430L
Best group of the day: Crosman Premier Hollow Points, 7.9gr, Forend rested on rolled-up pad.

Thanks for the prompt reply to Alex!
Same here JiminPGH ... on the basis of Hector’s review of the OEM 430L, I decided to purchase one too.
And, I wanted to experience a 12FPE air rifle as-well.
However, after I had Jacob of Airguns of Arizona measure the Length-of-Pull .... 13 1/2 inches ... I was more sold-on the 430L.
I’m a short man and my ideal LOP is 13 3/8 inches ... 13 1/2 is close enough. LOL
So-much-so, I purchased a second 430L.
So-far, no regrets in having done-so ... playing only $149 per rifle was also a very strong incentive for a well-reviewed air gun.
Got home from work last night ... it was dark, no chance to do any shooting - I work 2nd-shift.
However, just as I was about to-go to-bed ... I was drawn to the utility room where my 430L is presently stored.
For no-other-reason, than to hold and look-at my 430L - I really like this air rifle.
I’m feeling like a kid with a new BB-gun.
It is really an excellent deal. A great platform for a fun plinker, or even a WFTF rig.
Hector does show what you can expect from this rifle in in reviews. An accurate semi lightweight (compared to the other Rifles in it's category) and a fun to shoot gun.
The cocking is the only issue for most people, if you plan on shooting a hundred or more shots a week you might get a little sore.
Trigger is good, can be made comparable/ equal to a TX or HW trigger with 30 mins to an hour of time.
If you have the cash, and are in the fence you'd be silly to pass this up.
