Default Transistor Choice in radio project

A 3 transistor regenerative TRF: OC45 & 2x OC71.
A fellow constructor made the same circuit & introduced two changes: OA79 instead of OA91 diodes and also substituting OC81D for the pair of OC71's.
His effort sounded great & I wondered if this was due to the OC81D having greater gain than a OC71. Or maybe the diode swap had some effect?
Can anyone tell me what the gain of a OC71 and a OC81.OC81D should be from data sheets?
