Things I liked:

Material build quality, above expectations for the price point. Handling, as a Carbine its light years ahead of previous attachment style handles in the price point. Readily modifiable, parts are readily exchanged from pistol to the PCP repeater.

Things I would have changed:

The trigger design is simplicity itself keeping the price low, it does limit the user's tunability. The magazines, I just find a bit touchy to deal with the single shot tray is my preferred loading method. That said for field work and carry it is awesome, just be sure to work out the kinks before you go out and risk frustration with a pellet loading issue via magazine.

What others should know:

It benefits from some simple mods and attention out of the box. A good swabbing of the barrel using the normal soft methods has been helpful on the half dozen of this series I have bought. An abrasive rubber point, breaking the sharp edge on feeding the pellet into the barrel behind the O-ring seal smooths entry. Filing/sanding a radius off the plexiglass sharp edge facing the magazine can help with the nicked fingers. A lighter trigger spring helps to reduce side pull tendencies. This is just a thoroughly enjoyable moderate priced outfit, easily a first choice introduction to offer a child or new shooter.

    Things I liked:

    I have only shot it with the pistol barrel. While sighting it in using a red dot, I only needed 2 shot groups between adjustments since they tended to touch at 35 ft. I am happy with the accuracy. The trigger is perfect for me out of the box.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wanted to try the suppressor with the pistol barrel. Getting it off of the rifle barrel was a pain since it was put on with red locktite which is considered permanent. I wish it was easier to switch between barrels since both are threaded.

    What others should know:

    I had to put a 11mm to 20mm picatinny weaver rail mount adapter on it to put a red dot on it.

    Things I liked:

    Very quiet. Works in cold weather- 582fps with o ring spacer. Left in car overnight. 44 degrees f

    Things I would have changed:

    Did not work at all when summer came. I have 2 chaser .177, .22. Tried spring mod with spacers no luck only 312 fps in .177 when gun was warm. Very frustrating. Barrel gets dirty- must be cleaned for accuracy in my case.

    What others should know:

    Frustrating gun- buy something else for summer shooting

    Things I liked:

    Outstanding trigger, lightweight for a carbine, good on CO2, maybe 50 shots per cartridge, parts fit securely, two barrels--pistol and rifle length, suppressor on the rifle barrel that works well. Can handle a magazine which is extra cost.

    Things I would have changed:

    I haven't had it long enough to complain about anything.

    What others should know:

    Converting to a pistol is less than two minute after you do it a few times. Everything about the gun is precise. German engineering, Chinese assembly. Deserves a nice red-dot or scope. Be careful to measure the limited rail space on the gun to be sure the optic you choose will fit. I use a CenterPoint holographic sight and it fits perfectly. Accuracy is excellent. Great trigger, adjustable for feel. I liked this one so much I also bought the Airbug.

    What others should know:

    I have NOT shot this other than a few cleaning pellets and will update if anything changes. CLEAN your barrels. My pistol Barrell was is as clean as they come. The rifle barrell had to of just come of the CNC machine as it was covered externally and Internally with machine oil.

    Things I liked:

    This is a very nicely put together kit. I like the carrying case. Changing between rifle and pistol takes only a couple minutes. Accuracy seems good for open sights. The trigger is smooth and breaks cleanly. The bolt operates smoothly and easily.

    Things I would have changed:

    The sights are cheaply made and definitely not for shooting precision. They look and remind me of cheap toy gun sights. Clunky and crude. However, to be fair, the sights are adjustable and do function. The blades are wide. Fine for plinking, not so much for 10meter target. This is a quality airgun that seems great in all regards except for the sights. If you buy a kit like this, you should get the magazines with it. The case even has spots to store the magazines. I tried to order them at the same time I bought the rifle, somehow I didn’t get the magazines, but instead got a bunch of stuff that I didn’t order. I think PA was having technical issues that day??

    What others should know:

    Great price, great trigger, well thought out. You will be wanting the magazines as soon as you run 5 rounds through the airgun. Great buy!

    Things I liked:

    So far it has been just what I expected from all the other reviews I had read. I'm using it for backyard pesting, 10 yard shots at the very furthest. Its very accurate out of the box, quiet in rifle form, and discreet. A cheap red dot sight has proven perfectly accurate for the back yard. Dialed in with the right pellets, I think it is reasonable and humane for the gray tree rats that wreck our garden and patio, but only within that 10 yard range. I haven't done any of the power mods yet, but hopefully they will help a bit. I didn't buy it with this in mind, but its so accurate with the right pellets (and so darn quiet) that it has been more fun than I expected for just plinking at targets in the backyard, too.

    Things I would have changed:

    I'm planning to order the CARM magazine since the Diana version seems to have such mixed reviews.

    What others should know:

    I'm finding that pellets in the 14 gm range pattern very tightly - H&N FTT 14.66 gr and Crosman Premier Piranha 14.3 gr have been the best so far. I can get dime-size groups pretty easily just resting across the back of a patio chair. For whatever reason, Crosman Premier HP 14.3 gr pellets don't stay as tight as the Piranha, but aren't terrible. I tried H&N Barracuda Hunter 18.21 gr and the Hunter Extreme 18.52 gr to try and get a harder hit, but they both scatter pretty bad, often a couple of inches at 10 yards. I just don't think the gun has the oomph to for the heavier pellet, especially unmodified. I'll probably try the JSB Haedes eventually (after the power mods?), but pretty happy with the Piranhas for now.

    Things I liked:

    It's lightweight but solidly built. Overall parts and build quality are excellent. Super quiet with the long barrel installed. Versatile with many different setup possibilities. Excellent adjustable trigger. Comes with spare screws and O-rings. It's a lot of gun for the money.

    Things I would have changed:

    Not a thing.

    What others should know:

    I set my gun up in the rifle configuration with a Hawke 4x scope, BKL medium rings, and a UTG lightweight bipod. To clear the objective end of the scope, I had to remove the rear rifle iron sight from the barrel band. Just remove the elevation screw and lightly tap the sight forward with a nylon punch and it comes right off. The trigger adjustment screws didn't have any threadlocker. Once I'd adjusted the trigger to my liking, I used blue Loctite to secure them. I've heard of problems with the rotary mags, but the one I purchased with the gun works fine. The screw that holds the action in the grip frame on mine was loose, so be sure to check it and tighten it if needed. This gun is a great shooter and a good value considering all the extras that come in the kit.

    Things I liked:

    Accurate, and the trigger is surprising crisp. the rifle stock feels beefy and solid. Quiet with the moderator.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rear sight notch is a little shallow for the front sight, and maybe a little narrow. Also I'd like it more if the sights were metal instead of plastic. The rear of the grip can bug you if you have large hands as there is a beak-like projection (it's made that way to mount the but stock), so I would have redesigned or reprofile it.

    What others should know:

    The moderator/silencer on the rifle barrel really works well, Like others, I took a heat gun on the low setting to loosen it to be able to use it on the pistol barrel. The pistol barrel by itself is pretty loud. The manual says to remove the pistol sight when mounting the rifle barrel, but we left it on because it doesn't interfere with the sight picture. You actually look well over the pistol rear sight to acquire the rifle rear sight, so it's not like trying to line up three sights. The grub screws that mount the barrels are tiny, so be careful when changing things.

    Things I liked:

    Since I got the Diana Chaser kit, it has taken me a while to test all the parts and schemes to fire this rifle and pistol. I consider this to be a very versatile kit and a great bargain for the quality at a very reasonable price. The accuracy and repeatability for good shot groupings is wonderful. It is a great gun for improving my shooting skills, since I am the weak link in the perfect shot. I had no difficulty making all the conversions. - I highly recommend reading all the documentation and watching videos on these procedures. I'm also amazed at the noise reduction that the suppressor gives the gun - it is so quiet that the wild life around me does get spooked when I'm firing at my targets, and I sometimes wonder if a forgot to load pellet. - There's often more noise from the report given from these targets.

    Things I would have changed:

    I think fiber optic sights would be a nice upgrade. The kit should offer the magazine option.

    What others should know:

    I'm considering getting another Diana Chaser so I won't have to change the barrels, since I like shooting both the rifle and the pistol. I bought a second suppressor, just so I would need to swap that part while switching barrels. I have yet to try any scope sights on this air gun, but I'm confident that this will give additional pleasures in my choices and enjoyment.

    Things I liked:

    I've been in the market for a light weight .22 that wasn't a pumper (but I love my Crosman 362) or a PCP (don't want to buy a $300-$500 compressor). So I bought one of these in .22 with a Hawke Vantage 2-7x32mm scope and 1" rise rings from PA. A Co2 isn't as powerful as a pcp or as self contained as a pumper but fun factor is all over this little airgun. I have uploaded the targets from this afternoon and for the money, this item is worth it. Straight out the box, without cleaning anything, I mounted my Hawke Vantage scope along with the rifle barrel and started shooting. JSB 18.15 grain at 15yds I was at a half inch group with a 5 shots. the images are uploaded.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish the charging handle was on the right side like most others, but that is just personal preference. Keeping the price point in mind and accuracy out of the box, I can't reasonable say that anything should be changed.

    What others should know:

    Sheesh this thing is quiet with the rifle barrel, which is easy to install, just look it up on youtube. Also you will learn that these guns are fun to tinker with, which is also all over youtube. I know PCP is the end all be all but give Co2 a chance.

    Got this for wife, to get her started with air guns. She like it because of it being lightweight and accurate. We now go out together and shoot the numerous 5 foot iguanas that come onto our property.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    We put on an ASG red dot as it was better quality than they offer in their package. You do need to get a UTG dovetail to weaver/picatinny adapter, but it is worth it. It is nice that you can store a extra CO2 cartridge in the handle.

    Just about everything. Versatility, ease of use, open sights and optics mountable. 40-50 shots per CO2 cartridge. Mostly just a lot of fun!

    Things I would have changed:

    The bolt can be a little finicky at times and difficult to slide forward. Perhaps a better method of knowing when the magazine is empty.

    What others should know:

    Pistol and rifle in one kit. A red dot optic really makes it deadly accurate. Best for 30 to 45 foot range.
