Things I liked: Trigger is super nice, no perceived recoil, extremely accurate, I have a Marauder, a RWS 48 a Trail NP2 and now this, ill be selling the Marauder now....This is by far the most accurate out of the group using Diablos Exact heavies 18.3. At 20 yards you can put them thru the same hole consistently, very pleased. The wood is nice looking, has some checkering to make it easier to hold, that's one thing I did not like about the 48 was no checkering and slippery, this one is easy to grip.

Things I would have changed: The trigger distance from the thumb-hole took a minute to get used to, but trigger is so lite that it is a non issue.

What others should know: Get one, for a single cock side-lever the power is amazing, I will chrono it this weekend, but it broke my steel backstop and went clean thru my pallets. It is heavy 12-13 pounds with scope etc, but not a uncomfortable heavy, balances very nice. side lever has two cocking phases, one cocks the spring, keep going and it moves the carriage forward, this allows for the recoil to come straight back, kept hitting me in the hat...but makes it so easy to shoot. Save up for this one.

Things I liked: Accuracy, smoothness, Stock is beautiful. Smooth cocking mechanism.

Things I would have changed: It's heavy, but hey, you'll get used to it.

What others should know: This is my 2nd Diana Springer. My otherone is the 460 (an underlever). Both shoot smooth as silk. The sliding barrel on this really works. You can grab it very tightly and it'll group very nicely. I've been using the JSB exacts (My favorite pellet) either the 13.xx grain and some heaver ones also. This thing is a tack driver with them. One other observation I have for both this and the 460. Easier to load than the 460. Every article you read will tell you that scoping a break barrel is fine and it'll still be accurate even though the scope isn't on the barrel. After getting my 460, then this, I completely disagree with that. having a 'fixed' barrel (as far as the scope is concerned) makes a HUGE difference. I can't get groups 1/2 as tight with any of my break barrels. Think about it, the slightest angle difference and the scope is off. I'm sure others will disagree, but for springers I'm sold on solid barrels (under/side leverl) over break barrels.

Things I liked: HOLY CRAP! I absolutely LOVE this rifle. I also own a Air Arms TX 200 HC; and the RWS 56 is FAR... FAR easier to shoot accurately. AND the velocity is higher! In fact, the RWS 56 (in .22) is cronyd at a faster velocity then my (.177) TX200. I will say the Air Arms is FAR prettier and much lighter though. Sighted in at 15 meters using a Caldwell FCX rifle rest (ALSO A PHENOMINAL PRODUCT), I hit bull's-eye every time (using 10.34 grain Crosman Premiere domes and hp). I also own precharge pneumatic rifles, but nothing beats the hassle free, self contained magnum power of the RWS 56 (and 54/52).

Things I would have changed: Walnut stock would be nice. The Beech is kinda second class.

What others should know: The side cocking makes it SO much easier for bench rested shooting.

  • Daniel from USA asked:

    When will this become available with the N-Tec gas piston?

    • Tyler from USA:

      At this point, we have not heard anything about an N-tec version

  • David from USA asked:

    I hesitate when a company offers a guarantee of lesser value on its products. Past experience in my field tells me something has been done in the quality department, i.e. usually a manufacturing change simplifying production at the customer's expense. Why do you suppose RWS has all of a sudden reduced its warrantee on the 56TH? Anybody got a plausible explanation? Until I saw the reduced warrantee past excellent experience with my 2 RWS 350s had me seriously considering the 56Th in .25.

    • Tyler from USA:

      It has nothing to do with quality or manufacturing. Notice how this is labeled as a Diana and not an RWS Diana like the model 350? This gun comes direct from Germany and is not covered under the same warranty through Umarex because they do not import it.

  • William from USA asked:

    Does this carry a lifetime warranty?

    • Jerry from USA:

      No, it carries a 2 year limited warranty

    • Dan the Man from USA:

      No, it carries a 2-year limited warranty.
