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.

    What others should know:

    I am Brand new to air guns. My wife was going crazy after squirrels started digging up all her flower bulbs! Did a little research and came upon the Diana. Bought the Diana and the Winchester scope , ( fits natively on the 11mm rails ) from Pyramyd Air. Zeroed in the scope to where the squirrels were feeding ( under our birdfeeder ) about 20' from the house. Loaded Seneca hunting pellets 32.4 gr and got six squirrels ( mostly head shots ) in one day! Did make one modification I found on YouTube. Took out the trigger spring and stretched it from 60mm ( original length ) to 90mm. Made the trigger heavier but increased the fps significantly. Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

    Things I liked:

    I had previously ordered a Diana Airbug and liked the way it shot. It got about 100 shots without any noticeable drop in performance, Easy to handle. But after the initial CO2 cartridge, subsequent cartridges failed to load. Maybe a seal fell out but I really have no idea, nor am I a gunsmith, so I returned the gun. By then, Pyramyd had the Chaser kit in stock which is what I wanted in the first place. I ended up returning it as well (see below). But, here's the thing that I really liked: Pyramyd Air accepted the both returns without the slightest hesitation, even paid return postage. The entire process was quick and easy. Now I'm looking at the Hammerli AP20 and darn right I'm going to get it from Pyramyd.

    Things I would have changed:

    Okay, so like I said above, I returned the Airbug and got the Chaser pistol/rifle kit. In order to provide a stable place for the stock to attach to the pistol, the pistol grip has a most uncomfortable protrusion on the lower right edge. And then the reason for the return, the rear site would not allow me (and maybe it was me) to zero the gun to the 6 o'clock targeting position. Turning the elevation set screw counter clockwise eventually caused the whole thing to come undone, firing the spring off onto the floor of my stall at the indoor range. A miracle that I found it among hundreds of pieces of brass. Also, the windage adjustment marker was so far out of the rear blade notch that I could only conclude engineering shortcomings.

    What others should know:

    I guess I'm going to keep trying on this newfound hobby. My previous shooting experience was limited to 10m target with a jazzed up 22 and I was shooting about 70/420. Hopefully the complexities of a PCP rig will work for me and perhaps put me north of 83/500. I can see from various online videos that the Hammerli AP20 sites do allow for 6 o'close siting. Sorry to say that I won't have a rifle, but separate rifles are certainly available in the future. Sorry, Pyramyd for the negativity, but you did ask for a review knowing the issues I had. Feel free to trash the review if you want.

    Things I liked:

    I bought the .22. Bolt action. It feels sturdy. It has a push button safety. The suppressor makes a significant difference in the sound. Single shot or magazine (separate purchase but worth it). The rifle barrel band can be used on the pistol and has a standard rail for attachments. It comes with a soft case. Aftermarket accessories look great.

    Things I would have changed:

    Include at least one magazine. Add a picatinny rail on top.

    What others should know:

    This is only my third air gun, I am no expert, nor do I plan to become one. I purchased the rifle kit mainly for the pistol and the suppressor. I do not plan on using it in the rifle config, but the combo is nice to have in case I change my mind. I see comments that this gun isn't for small game hunting, which is nonsense when I know for a fact that people hunt small game with the Crosman Vigilante. The reason I wanted more power than my vigilante is because I want to be able to shoot from farther away, but still have the power to take out the pesky critters that keep trying to tunnel under my house. Unfortunately various harmless deterrents did not work. The suppressor makes a significant difference in the sound which is great because I don't like disturbing my neighbors.

    Things I liked:

    A nice suppressed indoor single shot CO2 rifle. Quieter than most in rifle mode. Nice that it can be made a repeater at extra cost.

    Things I would have changed:

    Suppressor should be removable or available for the pistol. Magazine should be included. The barrel swap out should be redesigned, it often will injure the barrel seals which are not easy to find. Pistol grip is not for most people. It is a nice quiet little indoor rifle though.

    What others should know:

    As a suppressed repeating rifle this is an interesting little indoor shooter. Pistol is loud, not ergonomic. The Crosman 2240 is a much better pistol.

    Things I liked:

    I almost can't imagine shooting another rifle - not sure what the advantages would be. I looked around for a second rifle after I got this one and ended up buying another one. This is HIGHLY accurate. That's the main point of a gun: accuracy. I routinely practice shoot targets at 100 feet, with bullseyes and tight groupings. (I added a scope of course.) The silencer is OUTSTANDING. All you hear in the yard is a mild metallic "click", not a loud "bang", so the neighbors aren't going to complain that "somebody is shooting..." Buying some big heavy imitation M16 or other rifle - you have to ask yourself, "What for? What am I gaining?" The answer is not much. If you're using a CO2 cartridge, the pellet fps out of the barrel won't vary much. If you want an M16 then buy a real one, but this is a pellet gun! I used the Chaser with the rifle stock as a long-barrel pistol but then decided what was the point? It was easier to use as a rifle. I have two of these and both perform great!

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish the silencer was sold separately for other Diana models such as the AirBug. (I am going to swap out my rifle barrel with the silencer as the parts appear to be interchangeable. This will dampen the sound quite a bit if successful.). As with other comments, the instructions are ridiculously brief and you have to fiddle with it and watch YouTube videos to swap out things successfully - however, it's easy enough, so don't worry. It's just that Diana should be the be all/end all in terms of information about its own products and include complete, definitive info with the rifle. I'd also change the case. It comes with a case but it's cheap, flimsy and useless when you change it over to a rifle as it's way too short. I just threw mine out and bought a rifle case for $20, and it had pockets for cartridges, pellets, etc. Don't waste your time with the case that comes with it.

    What others should know:

    Biggest oversight is the lack of any information on height for scopes and information on rail adapters for scopes!!! You will have to fiddle with this, and maybe buy some extra / multiple parts before you get it right, especially if you want to use the magazine, as low-raise raisers won't give enough clearance for the scope AND the magazine. Frankly, the magazine is "funky" and I've found it almost as fast - and MUCH more DEPENDABLE - to just feed the single-shot slide. Frankly, this isn't a firearm. If you're shooting vermin in the yard, if you miss, they'll fly/scurry away and you won't get a second shot anyway. If you get them, you'll have plenty of time for a second finishing shot. If you're shooting at a target, again, this isn't a speed firearm drill with 9mm bullets in a 15 round magazine... there are 7 pellets in their magazine and it takes a LONG time to reload. Any time you "save" by using a magazine, you will then lose - and then some - reloading the magazine.

    Things I liked:

    Light weight and accurate. Both are important to me. Very easy to aim and shoot, compared to my heavy break barrels.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better directions for changing from pistol to rifle, Removing the rear sight from pistol is not explained. The directions simply say to remove it. No details.

    What others should know:

    Taking off the rear sight involves removing multiple screws. (Including the elevation adjustment screw.) At first glance it looks like removing just one screw will do it. It will loosen the sight but will not allow removal till more screws are taken out. Directions do not detail this. This one issue knocked the five star rating down to four stars.

    I finally got my chaser kit. No problem with Pryamyd. but FedEx delivery is terrible! It took an extra 3 days for delivery. Great little air gun! I put the rifle barrel on, added a scope I had laying around and it's look out sparrows and starling this year. Quiet also, more noise from impact than from gun. Thank you Pryamyd
