In my review of Diana 54 AirKing Pro, I have already given this rifle a lot of praise. I showed you the air rifle in more detail and did a shooting test at 10.9 yards (10 meters). As expected, the result was pretty good. When I achieved the excellent shooting result, it was immediately clear to me that I had to test the rifle at longer distances.
After I adjusted the air rifle to the new conditions like the wind, I was ready. I was excited to see the shot grouping at 27 yards (25 m). The conditions weren’t the best. I don’t just mean the wind, but also the table I use for shooting. The great thing is that it’s light and portable. The downside that comes with it is that it obviously doesn’t provide a 100% stable base for my rifle. Anyway, we don’t have laboratory conditions, but I still tried to make the best of it.
By now, many viewers have seen my review of Diana Mauser K98 PCP. There’s a lot of talk and discussion about the air rifle in the community. In the past year, I was often asked if I could make another video about K98 PCP and shoot it at a longer distance. Therefore, I borrowed the rifle once again to make a few more shots with it for you. I packed up all my equipment and went with Dirk to the shooting range.
I was a bit worried the wind would put a damper on my plans. However, I think the result isn’t bad at all. Once again, I was pleasantly surprised at how precise this rather inexpensive unregulated compressed air rifle is.
Like its predecessor, AirKing Pro is also equipped with the familiar recoil system. This is the special feature of this air rifle. If you pull the side lever all the way back, the retrograde brake system keeps the lever from snapping back and putting the shooter in danger. When shooting the more powerful version with the stronger spring, it is a great advantage that the detents of the retrograde brake system provide a possibility to pause the cocking process every few inches in order to recharge your batteries or to change hands and grab the lever in a different way.
The new shape of the stock and especially the red and black laminated wood stock are a real eye-catcher. For those who don’t like that, there is also the possibility to buy the air rifle with a classic beech wood stock. It is a bit lighter and also cheaper. However, I really like this fancy color.
The Diana Chaser air pistol is available at an absolute bargain price of under 100 euros. Very often, I test high-priced air pistols and air rifles. Now I wanted to know if Chaser can impress me considering the low price. If so, this would be a real recommendation for any plinker and newcomer to the air pistol shooting hobby.
Good precision, 50-60 shots per cartridge, low price. These three aspects aren’t the only reasons to recommend Diana Chaser to beginners. Also, the possibility of attaching accessories such as a silencer, shoulder stock or rifle barrel give the shooter a lot of freedom to have fun with the pistol.
Trailscout is an affordable rifle to have fun with. Especially the trigger contributes significantly to the good shooting result. The CO2 rifle is light and handy. Diana Trailscout pierces simultaneously three 12-gram CO2 capsules. This provides an output of about 100 – 110 shots. A nice feature of Diana Trailscout is that you can adjust the piercer to match the capsule’s length. These have often different sizes. Therefore, 12-gram CO2 capsules from different manufacturers can also be used.
