Servus,
today I have a video for you about one of the best springers ever. The Diana 56 Target Hunter. I'm still completely speechless... good thing I recorded everything on video before:

Have fun watching, commenting, liking.

Many greetings
Andi

13yard=39ft...good shooting... :wink:
but streching the distance will show you what its really capable of doing
any good decent springer will give you those kind of results at 13yrds...
and at that price you can get the TX200...and for a couple bucks more a HW97K.. :wink:
and the Diana 56TH is 11.1 lbs that's 2 lbs heaver then the TX...and the HW97K..

13 yards - tks Ace.
I second the HW's and would included the 98 with the 97
as both being more accurate than the Diana. - However,
that is with the best pellets in the HW's. Perhaps the 54
was not 'broken in' yet, or the 'right' pellet was not used.

I've always wanted one of these 56's (as well as a HW98 & HW80), they are a big heavy gun, but weight is a good thing in springers.


The TX has many advantages over the 97 in my mind; rotating piston, central transfer port, easier to disassemble, better designed/made cocking lever, better anti-beartrap, piston bearings, better bluing. The HW does have a better piston seal though :lol:

Yes you are right with this! Offhand Shooting with the 56 is not so comfortable. But rested shooting is really great :-D I like it!
