Based on the proven design of the recoiless Model 54, the Model 56 adds a good looking muzzle stabilizer, ambidextrous thumbhole stock, and upgraded 2-stage trigger assembly with an all metal design. Also upgraded is the safety catch, which is now metal instead of the conventional plastic design of the previous models. To make the Model 56 even more appealing to the target shooter, the rear butt pad is adjustable for elevation. So, whether you are a serious target shooter looking for a tactical edge in a recoiless rifle, or if you are a long range hunter looking for superior follow through from a recoiless design, the Diana Model 56 is the ideal spring gun for your collection.

Just as advertised, but VERY heavy
I took off one star because mine buzzed when fired.

However, it was PCP-accurate out to 40 yards. The recoilless mechanism adds weight, but it is not just a gimmick. Mine was .177 and it liked JSB Heavy and CPH ammo.

When you get this, get a quality scope mount with it. I had a UTG for Dianas that worked OK, and a fully adjustable one that was expensive and wouldn't hold still. Consult the guys at AoA for advice.

Trigger is good, but a long reach. Stock is excellent.

Don't slide the buttpad down to the bottom, then brace against it for cocking, or you'll crack the plastic plate. Not a big deal, you'll see what I mean when you get it. I cracked mine, which also cracked my heart a little, but it was a cosmetic flaw only.

The side lever cocking gives some leverage that you wouldn't expect, without making it super-long, like a magnum break-barrel. Mine shot at 20 FPE with the heavy pellets it liked best.

Don't plan on shooting this one offhand much. It's not doable for more than a few shots. Any rested position is fine. I remember that mine was well over 12 lbs. when scoped.
