If you have a 56th in a .177,
Can you put a .22 barrel on?
And if you can where do you get them? Crow

So if I知 reading this correctly  the performance line is made in Germany and the action line is made in China. I hope the quality is up to Diana standards on the MIC stuff.

WOW, that's something I didn't know. Not crazy about knowing that now. Anyone that thinks China is going to have the quality that Germany has is in another universe.

@Crowman.- You cannot change the caliber in a 56 T/H
So far, ONLY the 34 EMS is a true multi-caliber rifle. IF we are successful in that, we may apply the same system to the 48->54 in the future. There is precious little space to do it in the 460.

@ Frank.- We know that SPA (China) cannot give us the SAME quality as the German/European parts makers. BUT they offer a product at a price and with a purpose that has value in the market.
Not every airgunner is  an airgun connoiseur. There are (MANY)  shooters out there that just want an utilitarian airgun for fun, for the truck, or to be left in the barn. And they can't/won't invest $300 +  dollars in an airgun.
The "Action" line is designed for this segment of the market. Utilitarian and within a price range that justifies the uses. Sort of Chevrolet and Cadillac, or Volkswagen and Audi. Both have their place in the market.

:-)

Keep well and shoot straight!

Hi Hector, what do you exactly mean by "true multi-caliber" ? I mean to say, is that (next to swapping the barrel) also related to other specific technical features of the 34 EMS so it can handle both calibers effectively ?

To Hector's point, China's manufacturers might not reproduce the fit and finish of German guns, but boy do they come close and deliver on a product that meets the need of a standard user. Xisico's line of air rifles is a pretty good example. There are folks here who say that some auxiliary details (sights, etc.) on the clones even surpass the German counterparts.

Thanks for reply, as I知 green at this sport.
I got serious 2 1/2 yrs. ago, squirrel invasion. Bought several rifles since, but little time spent on them, busy with self project till fall.
My targets are 35 yds. as this is my max. distance on my property for Varmints.
Love thumbholes. Would prefer 56th in .22. I was told the .177 would have to be (tuned down) not sure?
What are the benefits of the 56th .177 would it suit my needs?

Rudy;

IN a break barrel there are not that MANY things that need changing between calibers (all three calibers). Sliding compression chambers are more sensitive to some design figures. Break barrels are inefficient enough that some aspects contribute little.
In the EMS; between the capacity to use steel or gas spring; and the possibility to use different weight pistons, plus an ABP unit; plus the customization possibilities of the front end, you have enough tools to make the guns more than "very capable" with any barrel you choose.
Of course you need to know what you are doing, but the possibilities are there.

HTH




HM

So far, the "dual caliber" rifles in existence have been liners inserted in a barrel with the obvious, inherent, weaknesses.

I oppose TH stocks in airguns, too may more variable to control in the grip. BUT if you like them, then go for it!

At 35 yards MANY air rifles are able to put 5 pellets into a chipmunk's head, let alone a squirrel.

Also, at 35 yards, the 0.177" expanding pellets do a fantastic job: H&N Baracuda Hunter Extreme & Baracuda Hunter, JSB Hades, Predator Poly Mag, Crow Mag. All do a  great job.

As long as you use the 56 with the right pellet weight so as not to exceed 875 fps by much, you should be OK.

Keep us posted!

It's been a little while since the last post, but here I go. Can you change calibers on a Diana Chaser by simply changing barrels?
Is my question sounds ignorant it probably is but please remember I'm very new to air rifles.

Thank you Sir, this is the link to the thread I started https://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=187287.0
I really appreciate you taking the time. One other question is where can we buy the small/thin O-rings used on the barrel exterior at the breech end. I have a very few spares but I would like to get a few more.
Thank you again,
