Reply To: Need your springer advice!!
The DIana 340 N-Tec is a gas ram rifle that shoots just below 16 F/Lbs, but it still gives quite a kick. I’ve never shot a magnum air rifle that was accurate. Maybe the definition of accurate isn’t the same for everybody, but I want to see at least sub MOA (1/2″) groups at 50 yards before I call something accurate. It just isn’t possible with the recoil of a magnum springer to shoot that accurate, because the recoil is felt before the pellet leaves the barrel and those magnum rifles kick like a freakin’ mule! The Diana 54 and 56 use a recoilless system, and they’re not really magnum springers. Anything above (not advertised, but true) 18+ F/Lbs is considered a magnum rifle in .177.
