By William from USA on 2010-01-25 19:07:23Things I liked:Bought 22 caliber model. Trigger pull crisp and repeatable. Very accurate at 20 meter indoor range with 14 grain pellets....15 shot groups shot at casual rest position covered with quarter; plenty good for hunting accuracy. Actually, got bored watching the shots go through the same hole (dime) with benchrest hold.
Things I would have changed:Scope supplied ended up with reticle rotating 45 degrees with respect to scope body after a dozen shots. Obviously, not up to recoil which is substantial but smooth. Put on spare RWS scope and that one works fine.
What others should know:Removed front barrel shroud and saved 13 ounces. This also shifted gun balance towards middle of gun. This gun is a handful to cock and hold offhand (9 pounds with scope), but if you're in shape not too bad. I would try for a rest position shot when hunting if possible. This gun hits HARD!! As it says in the copy, 14 grain pellets move out at 850 fps.

By michael from USA on 2014-09-07 21:57:42Things I liked:Excellent build quality, accurate, predictable, iconic Diana rifle.
Things I would have changed:.177 is not backyard friendly. Easily the loudest airgun I own out of 14 ranging from .177 to .25 both springers and pcp. Not recommended if you have neighbors closer than 50 yards.
What others should know:Very loud in .177. Shoots crossman premiers 10.5 and JSB 10.35 very precisely and consistently exceeding 20 lb ft.
