Things I liked: This is an attractive, well made airgun. The thumb hole stock is nicely finished and gives a good sight picture with a scope. The fore end is suited for bench rest or off hand shooting. Accuracy is excellent, and pellet velocities equal factory claims and have a minimal velocity spread. With .22 H&N Field Target Pellets weighing 14.66 grains, the average for ten shots is 824 fps with a low of 821 and a high of 826. The trigger is very usable out of the box. Cocking effort is noticeable, but not a problem even for extended shooting sessions. The anti recoil mechanism is effective in virtually eliminating any felt recoil and the firing behavior is smooth and fairly quiet.

Things I would have changed: With a scope and mount this is a heavy gun. My scoped FWB 300 and scoped HW77K are noticeably lighter. This may not be a good choice for a slightly built person.

What others should know: This is a well made airgun that will last a lifetime, however the quality of the metal finish work does not equal that of my mid 80's FWB 300 and HW77K The trigger while crisp and fairly light, is not as good as the FWB 300 and HW77K triggers

Things I liked: It is extremely accurate once broken into and sited in. I love the recoiless. The noise is not too loud considering how powerful it is. I just love that it hits the target about 98% of the time. The 2% miss is either a flyer pellet or myself.

Things I would have changed: Perhaps no need for the double monte carlo to shave off some weight, though weigth is what helps accuracy. Also lower the monte carlo because a medium ring clears a 40mm objective at the barrel but is too low to look through with any scope. I had to order a high ring to be able to look through the scope.

What others should know: This air gun is not a toy and not for a child. The cocking is not listed but appears to be around 39lbs. It is heavy at 11lbs, add rings and a scope and you're looking at around 14lbs but I'm not saying that's bad. I'm only stating for information. You will need at least a high ring to be able to look through a scope due to the high double monte carlo. The gun is still new to me so this is all I have to say for now. I love it so far. Hope this helps other buyers out there.

Things I liked: I like everything about this rifle even the weight is at worst a love/hate relationship. Things you expect & get great craftsmanship and the stock is flawless. The trigger though out of the box just over 1lb i think & comes from factory 1st stage eliminated so saves me the trouble of doing that and 2nd stage is well i dont have to think about it too much. The only thing is i am a bit of a demanding person when it comes to triggers so it might come off a bit subdued so i might need to say this is a GREAT trigger & i do plan on shortening the 2nd stage travel, but the trigger out of the box could be used even for serious target shooting. No it is not a match trigger & not a 10m rifle. It is the most accurate air rifle i have used. I was testing pellets and zeroing in scope an hour ago using a field pod @ 38yds and got a consecutive group of 6 Crosman 14.3 HP box store pellets that group could be covered by a dime. I cant wait to get a better scope and get set up for bench rest sight in

Things I would have changed: I have seen and understand the adjustable butt if offset can be cracked and this model has been around for seven or more years without fixing this one flaw. I would be ok with purchasing a better replacement. This rifle is called a "Target / Hunter" in my opinion hunting rifles should have open sights and any hunting rifle especially one of this weight needs sling swivel studs. I know a lot of people would disagree, but i would have preferred a synthetic stock in this shape & style. If you want to call this heavy rifle a "Hunter" it needs to have sling studs installed and i am for that reason taking a star from value for the money.

What others should know: I did not get to liking the thumb hole stock aspect i think this is why i chose this over the RWS 54 and the 56th is given slightly better FPS at least according to the Diana website which has recently changed and the English language content seems sketchy. I should mention it does have a little spring buzz, but that's well documented. I think i will in the future likely have a PG2 kit installed. I am just not a fan of PCP at least not right now as i just like the self contained aspect and having to install sling swivels and the weight are small issues for all the strong points.

  • mrmrogden from USA asked:

    I need to know the thread specs for the muzzle brake end cap as i am wanting a moderator adapter made.

    • Joe from USA asked:

      The cap that's at the end of the muzzle brake, could that we unscrew or taken off?

      • Louis from USA:

        Yes, the cap is removable and baffels can be inserted.

      • Joe from USA:

        Sorry for the typo "..Could that be unscrew or taken off?"

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not sure on the cap, but the entire brake can be removed, yes

    • mojtaba from USA asked:

      What are the best pellets for this specific .22 56 th air rifle? One for target at 30 yards and for hunting at 60 yards?

      • Louis from USA:

        I've had very good results with JSB 15.89g my model 54 (same action). I have tried a lot of pellets.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Each gun is different, you'll need to test a variety of pellets to see what is the most accurate in your gun. Once you find the most accurate pellet, I'd recommend using that pellet for hunting.
