    Things I liked:

    Sadly, nothing. The rifle when received, did not accept the .22 pellets, both barrels you could not load them , I verified with Daisy and Crosman pellets and was the same, you have to really push hard on the bolt in order to load it and when it fires the speed was very slow, I checked the barrels for obstructions and nothing, the machining was not accurate, also the silencer is not removable, then why you have threads on the smaller barrel? I already have the RMA # and in the process of returning this junk, the Quality Control of the barrels sucks. BTW I checked my pellets in other .22 rifle that I have and they load fine, just in case.

    Things I would have changed:

    The Quality Control of the guns. Improve it....

    What others should know:

    I still want to believe the Diana could improve, I am a retired Quality Control Engineer, I will request a replacement, I hope this time they improve, but I need an interchangeable silencer! Quality Control , adhere to specifications!!!!

    Things I liked:

    The modular design, quiet with rifle barrel, accuracy, not pellet picky at all, and light weight.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the silencer interchangeable as the manual shows instead of lock tightening it to the rifle barrel. Have more of a chamfer in the breech. Loading Wad Cutter pellets I have to use my thumb on the back of the bolt pin to load the pellet straight in. If I use the bolt handle it has just enough side load to catch the head of the pellet risking deforming the head of the pellet loading into the barrel. Any kind of pellet with a point loads fine.

    What others should know:

    I got the .22 version. Gun is extremely accurate at 10 yards creating a single ragged hole. After 20 yards groups opened way up for me and pellets really started dropping. This gun loves wad cutter pellets at 10-15 yards and it didn't matter what brand either though my go to in .22 is RWS Hobby. I tried out lead free pellets and most of them did well with the SIG Crux Ballistic 10.03 Grain working the best. I used these at 20 yards with great results. I did not mount a scope or Red Dot to this airgun. If I did possibly I could go beyond 20 yards and have better results. In .22 this is a great plinker for no further than 20 yards.

    Things I liked:

    .22 caliber. The modular design, light weight, yet the actual working suppressor acts as a muzzle weight to aid in a steady aim. The suppressor makes the carbine VERY backyard friendly. I immediately went to the carbine and stayed there- the accuracy is about 1/2"-3/4" @ 20 yards, haven't tested at a further distance yet. I don't own a chrono, so I can't confirm velocity, but after the changes described below, the power is almost as strong as my fully modded CO2 Crosman 2240 with a 10.1" barrel.

    Things I would have changed:

    Things I did change. The transfer port and valve inlet has a lot of extra metal to enlarge CO2 flow, but, the barrel port can only be opened a little more than stock due to the o-ring lands. I enlarged the valve internals to allow more CO2 volume at the cost of fewer shots per CO2, (about 28). The valve spring has to be changed or stretched to accommodate the aluminum removed. Stretched the hammer spring from 70mm to 90mm. Removed the rear sight, to install a Williams low rise peep sight on the dovetails. Stock sight are ok, but my eyesight isn't. Painted the front sight yellow. MAKE THE SUPPRESSOR FULLY REMOVABLE!!

    What others should know:

    The threaded part of the suppressor is lock-tighted on, BUT, the rest of it did thread off, which helped in the much needed barrel cleaning. Use caution when the trigger guard and stock are removed from the action. The trigger guard keeps the non-pressed in trigger/sear pins from falling out. If the above mod is done to the valve, be sure to cock the hammer before tightening down the CO2, (the hammer spring will have the valve slightly open to expel some CO2 until the CO2 pressure overcomes the hammer spring)

    Things I liked:

    Very good overall quality. (for the $$ - this gun is a true winner) I ordered along with a $49 Air Venturi Diopter (peep) rear sight. (nice combination for 20 to 30 yard target shooting). In pistol form and stock rear sight it is 1 inch tight at 25 feet. In rifle form it gets me 2 inch groups at 30 yards. These will improve as this 73 year old becomes better with the Diana. The trigger is predictable and good. The pistol barks a bit. The rifle is almost soundless.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    When switching out the pistol barrel the small O ring that is slotted into the barrel's breech end fell out. Just be careful not to loose and keep in a bag with the spare O rings provided. The same ring in the rifle barrel stays put. The Air Venturi Peep sight ( as your rear sight in rifle form ) increases the sight radius by a full 12 inches and raises this gun to a remarkable target shooter and maximizes fun without complication (or batteries) You must give the barrels a good cleaning before shooting. I normally just use gun oil on my swabs - but had to resort to Hoppe's 9 and then finish with lightly oiled swabs. We are forming a senior men and women's bench rest game. A 20 - 25 - 30 yard competitive event and this gun in rifle form with peep sight will probably be the standard piece for the events.

    Things I liked:

    Quality materials, easy CO2 loading, excellent accuracy, versatility, good iron sights, good power, comfortable, good ergonomics except for the "tail" at the bottom of the pistol grip (which does not affect the grip when in rifle mode). I get about sixty good shots at which time the power drops off quite abruptly which I find much preferred to having the power drop off more gradually. There is no uncertainty about when to change CO2.

    Things I would have changed:

    Improve the design or quality control of the optional rotary magazine. Make the trigger lighter and or make it adjustable and include that in the instructions.

    What others should know:

    The trigger is pretty good but a too heavy for one handed pistol shooting. There is, what apparently, is an adjusting screw, but it seems to be immovable and there is no mention of it in the instruction manual. I had some issues with it not puncturing the CO2 and found that if I put a little lube on the threads of the cap, I can turn it down further and then the puncture is more reliable. My only real issue is with the rotary magazine. I purchased two of them and while one feeds smoothly, the other hangs up quite often and has not gotten better with use. I was able to remove the suppressor which was threaded on with some red adhesive and it works extremely well on either barrel. The little Picatinny rail on the bottom of the rifle rear sight is very handy for attaching a light. I found that once the sights are adjusted, the barrels can be interchanged without needing re-adjustment. Tighten the middle screw first as it indexes the rotation of the barrel.

    Love this gun. Build quality way above my expectations. Not sure you could ask for much more in this price range. This is for grandson and can't wait to teach him. His father and myself both being able to work both at home and at range on both pistol and rifle is the best.

    Gun is light which will be great for young shooters. His father and I took it out to learn and try to be ready when we teach him. Found it very accurate and just a ball to shoot. EZ to change over but take your time. This gun was fun.

    Things I liked:

    Great package first DIANA product I have ever owned BUT it sure will not be the last. Amazing quality the pictures dont do it justice. When I first shot it I wasnt all that impressed with accuracy so I cleaned the barrel that was all she needed. At 25 yards Iam consistently getting groups a nickel will cover. Its easy on co2 as well. The pistol barrel without suppression device has a loud bark so I simply put noise dampening piece from rifle barrel on it problem solved the thing is extremely quiet easily can be shot in back yard.

    NONE!

    What others should know:

    Pyramyd rocks! My thirst for anything tossing a projectile down range extends from early 1940’s Daisy Targeteers and Benjamin hand pumpers to the modern Legends series. Can’t get enough. My collection of loud, flame belching firearms is stifled due to proximity to a safe range and nasty weather. Air guns flinging pellets and BB’s is doable in my backyard and basement. Pyramyd keeps my skills honed year around. My latest addition tickles my grin. A legitimate TWOFER, a welcomed Diana Chaser rifle kit came a week ago and has been squeezed tenderly every day since. Getting an accurate pistol AND carbine in one makes my grin get cramps. The moderator doesn’t even scare friendly birds away. It’s a hoot to shoot, the lightest pellet rifle I own, and absolutely one of the best values of any gun I’ve purchased. It does everything the descriptions say. Because of guns like this and the service Pyramyd gives I’ve referred a half dozen people their way. What’s next?

    Things I liked:

    Everything. Accurate, super quiet, comfortable to shoot and fun!!! The single shot tray is held onto the action magnetically, this is a very trick feature that impressed me. The stock drops on super easily, the trigger breaks very cleanly and that built in sound dampener just about makes this gun the quietest I have ever experienced.

    Things I would have changed:

    make it a pcp and give it a little more power??? this would be an awesome little woods gun if it had more power.

    What others should know:

    I just received my Diana Chaser a week ago. I am grinning from ear to ear. I have marauders and a handful of other pcp, co2 and spring guns, and this gun is at least as fun to shoot. There is definitely not a lot of power, but with JSB diablo exact heavy pellets this gun will make one hole 5 shot groups at 10 meters. The switch over from rifle to pistol is very straightforward, but once I put that rifle barrel and stock on I don't think it is going back. I installed a cheap 4x scope pretty painlessly, there is not a bunch or rail space, but it worked. with a scope the cheek on the stock is a little low, but it works. The rifle barrel is just plain silent. The spring firing action is the loudest part of the shot with that built in sound dampener. This is simply the best bang for the buck that you can find.

    Things I liked:

    I really had high expectations for this package. It looked like it would be a fun pistol and rifle combo, especially at this price range. I pre-ordered it several months in advance. My teenage son was pretty excited about it, too. We both feel pretty let down. There are a couple of positives, though. The loading tray is big enough to not be a problem. The sights are decentI like the hole in the side of the CO2 chamber that lets you see if a cartridge is loaded. I also like how quiet the suppressed rifle barrel is. It is REALLY quiet. It's not much louder than a Red Ryder. The unsuppressed pistol barrel is a lot louder. But, I do like that you can swap the suppressor once you break it free of the loc-tite. The instructions say that the suppressor can only be switched between barrels in some countries. Even though I bought this primarily as a pistol, I will probably keep it set up as a rifle most of the time.

    Things I would have changed:

    First, the pistol grip is an extremely awkward shape. The curve and point at the back of the base are the biggest problems. It forces your hand up and around to the right. Any attempt to maintain a correct grip is so uncomfortable that it almost hurts. Even holding with a forced improper grip (pistol or rifle) is pretty uncomfortable unless your hands are really small. Training with this pistol will create or reinforce bad grip habits. Second, it has a lot of internal recoil. There is a delay between pulling the trigger and firing. Throwing the bolt cocks it, compressing a spring. There is so much slap and movement when it releases that it is fairly difficult to hold the gun on target during the shot. Third, it isn't very accurate. Pistol and rifle groups were 1.75" and 1.25" from a sandbag rest on a bench. I tried three different pellet types with similar results. The trigger is pretty sloppy, too. Even though it is adjustable, there is a lot of side-to-side movement

    What others should know:

    This is the second time I have pre-ordered an item. I'm not thrilled with either. I have learned my lesson and probably won't ever pre-order again. It isn't always possible to hold something and check it out before buying. But, waiting for more information and customer reviews might have helped. Some of the things that bothered me about this one may not bother others. Switching barrels from pistol to rifle is fairly easy. Only the long end of the included allen wrenches fits the set screws, though. Keep track of the three allens when changing barrels; the center one is longer.

    Things I liked:

    Rifle is very very quiet. Have not shot in pistol form and likely won't. Rifle is extremely accurate shooting a ragged hole at 10 yards using h&n field target trophy 8.64 grain and jsb exact 7.33 grain. I couldn't really use the iron sights because of my eyesight so I took a bushnell trs-25 red dot off one of my ar15s and it worked well on the diana rifle. I couldn't shoot any further than 10 yards this week. The gun seemed to be hitting the target pretty hard for a 177 so I pulled out my old Combro 625 and attached it to the muzzle. Surprisingly I was getting readings in the 620s for the h&n and 670s for the jsb exact. Pretty impressive although I'm sure those numbers are a bit high on a muzzle mounted chrony. But take it for what it's worth. I am getting about 40 to 45 good shots before I shoot the rest of the gas out and change cartridges.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing really except the ability to remove that moderator to use on the pistol. But I knew that before the purchase so no big deal. Fantastic little gun for the price. No regrets at all.

    What others should know:

    I almost didn't buy any magazines but I did at the last minute. Initially I was disappointed and thought I would only use the single shot tray. Both magazines would not rotate thru 9 pellets until I made a slight adjustment in the middle screw. Both were too tight. I thought this might be the case because when I rotated the clear piece counterclockwise it should have wanted to rotate back when I release pressure but both did not. I loosened the center phillips head screw on each magazine mabye an 1/8 inch until the tension was released and now both mags work perfect. And honestly it is a whole lot more fun and accuracy was no different from the single shot tray. The bolt is tight at first but does loosen up with time. I got used to the left hand bolt handle real quick. I can use my right thumb to help close the bolt when using the single shot tray. But with the magazines the bolt is real smooth. Be careful to know where you are on the magazine so you don't load two pellets.

    Things I liked:

    When I opened the box, the first thought was - James Bond lost this package. It is right out of the movies. My back yard range is small, only 60' long. For a C02 gun that's ok. I tried the pistol version first. I used the single shot tray and was pleased with the accuracy. I did have to adjust the windage as it was off 3" to the left at 25'. When I changed to the long barrel (with its own sights) I was pleased to see a 1" group off hand at 50' without the rifle buttstock. The "silencer" actually silences the gun. when I fired all you hear is the pellet striking the target. The carbine buttstock fits well and installs easily. I really like this gun and look forward to my next engagement with the squirrels who torment my dogs. The gun is very well made and is well balanced. It feels good in the hand. In the carbine form it comes to the shoulder well.

    Things I would have changed:

    As one other reviewer wrote - the magazine is fussy. It is hard to load and is counterintuitive in that you load it backwards. In other word you load the pellets tail first. I didn't see any difference in accuracy on my initial encounter but will test further. The magazines are pricy at $49 each and they don't come with the gun. You have to order them separately.

    What others should know:

    Changing the barrels is not something you are going to do quickly. You have to loosen 3 set screws on the top of the receiver, remove the pistol barrel, install the rifle barrel and tighten the set screws, then install and tighten the barrel brace which also mounts the rear sight. Be careful to align the front sight by rotating the barrel. Speaking of set screws, I immediately lost one. I was fortunate to find it the next day. I contacted Pyramyd Air, Umerex and Diana. None were to be had. Diana did give me the sizes. They are of course all metric. The 2 outside screws are M4X3 and the middle one is M4X4. All in all I really like this little pliker.
