I can only share my experience with Diana 350 mag.
Cocking is real hard so one may need to use both hands.
It has sharp recoil.Much sharper than other Indian guns.
A .177 delivered 13.5 fpe out of the box.
I am told that with time power increases up to 17 fpe.
I can advise you to do for Diana 34 Classic instead.
I have no experience for scopes which can withstand recoil of 350 mag.

Dear Harry. I have a .177 diana 350 panther. It is a rifle which produce exactly 20 joule ( velocity regulated) with H&N Baracuda 10.65 grain. It is very accurate and needs slightly more power to cock in comparision to precihole NX.177. No need to use both hand, as the velocity regulated version of this rifle has a weak spring. But it is a big rifle with a length of 48 inch and heavy. It has TO 6 trigger which is very smooth to operate. But one thing stands before everything is that there is a chance that the rifle may be afflicted with drooping. That means the rifle will shot below the target. I have overcame with this issue by placing a 4mm washer below the rear sight to get the elevation. With this arrangement my rifle is an instrument of precision. So my advice would be to test fire the rifle at the kiehberg facility before choosing between Diana 350 or Diana 34. Yes, telescope is not legal to import. You can use the precihole peepsight instead. Good luck.
Regards

If possible try to get a UTG scope from USA, it takes a good beating and is airgun rated. It is also advisible to mount a scope only after 500 or so shots.

Dear narach93, I am owning Diana 350 panther .177. Can you please advise me on which is the best pellet that gives greater accuracy in this rifle? Someone suggested me to use heavier pellet. So now I am using JSB monster 13.4 grains pellet right now. But still it is not consistent in terms of accuracy though it is better than lighter pellet. Please suggest me which pellet I should use in my AR.
Regards
Sherin
