    Things I liked:

    Excellent fit and finish, especially for an air gun at this modest price. Pictured, the Airbug shows a glossy grip. The gun I received has a very comfortable and, for me, preferable matte-finish grip. The provided rear sight is okay. However, a gun capable of shooting as accurately as the Airbug deserves a good-quality red-dot sight. After firing a number of pellets with the original iron rear sight I removed and replaced it with the Hawke red-dot I had on my Diana Chaser. As the Airbug is now my CO2 pistol of choice, I'll install the removed iron sight on the Chaser (which I also regard as a high-quality bargain).

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing.

    What others should know:

    A "Made in China" label on most products suggests that they're of questionable quality. The Airbug's quality is exemplary. I couldn't be happier.

    Things I liked:

    Very accurate for its low price point! Comfy grip. CO2 is convenient for a quick shooting session and provides the right amount of fps for indoor or outdoor target shooting at 10m or less. A fun pistol to shoot. Dovetail grooves for mounting red dots/scopes if desired. Mechanically simple to repair and lots of aftermarket parts and accessories are available for the Diana pistols.

    Things I would have changed:

    Good to go as-is.

    What others should know:

    Be sure to clean the barrel and use a good gun oil on the sliding parts (bolt) before shooting it. The bore on mine was very grimy out of the box but I believe that is a thin protective grease that avoids rust during shipping and storage (I've seen this on new air rifles too) . Once cleaned, the bore was bright and shiny and the pistol grouped really well. Put a drop of Pellgun Oil on the CO2 cartridges with each new one to keep the seals happy and it should last a long time.

    Very well made. Fits the hand well. 60 shots per co2. Easy to load.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add white dots to sights.

    What others should know:

    Easier to load single shot, than to load the magazine.

    Very good shooting gun. I actually have purchased three of these models.

    Things I would have changed:

    Warranty help.

    What others should know:

    One of my pistols evidently has a valve problem. As soon as I try to insert another cartridge it leaks out within about 4 seconds.. I have been contacting Pyramyd Air and also supposedly Diana Warranty multiple times. Seems they are accusing each other as the responsible parties. No satisfaction so far. Sounds like Pyramyd Air might help. Still waiting. If they would only send me a new valve, I believe I could fix it myself.

    The grip, feels good in my hand, the left side bolt handle, make cocking easy. Shoots well.

    Things I would have changed:

    The sights, against a black bullseye is difficult to see . At least for me. A 3 dot system would be nice. Also an easier adjusting rear sight would be good also. The left to right adjustment are not precise

    Things I liked:

    The feel is very good. Trigger is great for a gun of this value. The sights are fine. It comes with a 6 shot mag but I have not used it I shot groups at 10 meters this gun is perfect for this and it dos not break the bank. It shots very good groups and I'm very happy with this gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing. You can always use better components but then the cost of the gun would climb and that would defeat the purpose of getting this gun in my opinion.

    What others should know:

    The only thing that I have had a issue with is the set screw for the trigger adjustment seems loose to me no problems with it yet but maybe the trigger could change over time then you would have to adjust it again.

    Things I liked:

    Value for the price. For the price point, flat out one of the best CO2 recreational target/plinking pistols out there. The nice ergonomic wood grips. The left side bolt action feeding. The excellent accuracy. Virtually all metal, has a feeling of quality to it. Included soft case. IMHO, for the money, a much nicer pistol than a comparably priced Crosman 2240XL. I plan on buying another as a gift.

    Things I would have changed:

    Wish extra seals had been included. Magazine was picky on pellets, had some jams with it. Won't use it as I prefer shooting single shots.

    What others should know:

    The reason I downgraded the overall rating on this was my Airbug arrived with a factory flaw which instead I initially thought was a design feature. The pellet tray and receiver/breech both have a magnet. On my pistol, the breech magnet was apparently installed upside down and repels the pellet tray instead of attracting and holding it. With the bolt withdrawn it moves over to the side by 1/4". Only the magnetic attraction to the steel assembly screw keeps it from falling out. Eventually I will disassemble the pistol, punch out the magnet and reinstall it correctly. Actually, with the tray pushed over, it makes pellet loading easier and I can easily nudge over the tray and close the bolt at the same time. Rather like it this way. This is why I didn't return it to PA. Another issue might be getting replacement seals, especially the odd sized barrel o-rings. I also purchased a UTG 1x30 red/green dot sight with a quick detach rail mount. UTG 1x30 4" Compact ITA... Works great on the Airbug.

    Things I liked:

    I like the adjustable trigger I like that competition pistol grip I like the fact that comes with a single shot tray and a magazine I haven't had a chance to fire it but I will soon as the weather clears up I haven't already yet because up here where I live there's a bunch of snow and the weather's cold weather is cold this morning it was 14 below up here in new York,, when the gun arrived course the first thing you want to do examine the gun try the action see if the magazine fits okay dry fire once but there's one thing that stood out on it that caught my attention it had a crown barrel I have never seen that on an air gun and that tells me it's going to have accuracy that's a lot of gun for the money

    Things I would have changed:

    A barrel ban would have been nice a moderator for the barrel

    What others should know:

    This is a lot of gun for what they're asking for it this gun has a crown barrel which means it's going to be extremely accurate do not hesitate to buy this gun I bought the gun in a 177 caliber

    Things I liked:

    I am a sucker for the wood frame.

    Things I would have changed:

    Little better build quality?

    What others should know:

    I am a huge Diana fan, I have a Chaser and a model 34 and 24 they are my favorites in .177 caliber. You can get parts even for the old stuff if you look long enough. I waiting a long time to get this pistol (Thanks PyramydAir for putting up with me). I ran a Dremel #953 stone (GENTLE) on the chamber end of the barrel. It ended the rough pellet feed . Cleaned the barrel to get the manufacturers oil out while it it off,. Just like any new pellet gun.... ( 1/2 a 22 patch and weed wacker string soaked in hoppe's #9) The lead pellet will coat the barrel and leave it's own non corrosive surface on the bore. Added a barrel band (not sure if I can name the people that make it) and.. a red dot optic for these old eyes. The stock plastic sights are OK , It is me eyes.. The 9 shot magazine is to much monkey biz for me. It may be your gig. Not mega sighted it in yet, but shot 50 + rounds to "break in" shoots straight and hard

    Things I liked:

    This is a very nice pistol to hold. The grip feels right and the balance of the gun and weight of it feels good too. The hole in the co2 feed tube enables you to see whether or not there is a co2 cartridge loaded. There is sufficient power to punch a hole in a tin can and there are around 30 good shots per cartridge. It's also very accurate. Another point is that I got this gun right at the start of winter so the co2 is probably at a lower pressure when it's cold. Some have reported getting as many as 50 good shots per cartridge and I'll be interested to see how the shot count changes in summer. All in all I'm happy with this gun and wasn't disappointed in any aspect of it at all. It even looks good as a display on my desk. It was also a surprize that it came with a case . . .

    Things I would have changed:

    I feel sorry that it's made in China - I don't want to support in any way the CCP.

    What others should know:

    I found the single shot tray is actually better than a cartridge. The cartridges cost about $20 apiece and doesn't really save a lot of time as the single shot tray is really easy to load.

    Things I liked:

    pellet on pellet how can it be more accurate . Looks great l fun and pleasing to operate. I bought it for backyard plinking and fell in love with shooting at 10 meter targets indoor. Im still testing to see how many good shoots i can expect from a single cartridge but seems good so far trigger is adjustable and great you can build good technique using it

    Things I would have changed:

    better rear sight, mine lost setting. I replaced it with a red dot and i love shooting this rig on my 10 meter rifle targets. I can actually pick a spot in the black I want to hit. better noise control! WOW this thing is loud sounds as loud as my 25 semi auto pistol. Nice suppression even as an option would e good clear up this barrel band issue, if its needed make it available when ordering or make it standard. I understand the price point issue so maybe offer a deluxe version with all the stuff people like.

    If you never tried co2 this is a good gun to start with

    Things I liked:

    Adjustable trigger. Good sight picture with target sights. Solid wood grip could be customised to shooters hand. Good price point for entry level 10 meter air pistol.

    Things I would have changed:

    I had to shorten the rear sight elevation screw a bit because the screw hit the bolt before the point of impact reached the point of aim. Three minutes with a file did the trick.

    What others should know:

    The grip is a handful but solid wood so it can be customised.

    Love the ergonomic form fitting wood grip, it makes it very comfortable to hold. Was spot on as far as being sighted in right out of the box.. I even decided to purchase another one as a gift!

    Things I would have changed:

    It seemed easier to load one shot at a time rather than messing around refilling the very confusing magnetic 9 shot plastic magazine.

    What others should know:

    Great gun for the price! Beautiful piece of equipment. Nailed a red squirrel 10 minutes after I took it out of the box!
