    Alright, I dragged this out long enough.  Thank you to those that supported me in spite of sounding crazy. 🙂

    That ugly green Gamo was just a local guy selling cheap.  I wanted the case it came with more than the gun.

     

    Here's what I REALLY got in trade.

    Diana 350 mag in .22 and the extras.

    I still think he got a better gun, but I got a better fit.  Really nice guy, we might be up for some darts-n-beer later.

     

    Seems me and magnums get along.  That's the 3rd I've enjoyed.

    Unlike the R9, I caught myself grinning while shooting it.

     

    Thanks all for tolerating the humor!

    Thanks!  So far so good.  It'll take a few rounds to settle me in and learn it.  Took the scope off, I'll give it a few 100 rounds w/open sights for a while.

    I'm sure the buyer will be happy with it.

    I knocked out a few fresh 25y-10dimes target w/the R9 before it left my hands.  Hoping to show off it's latest greatness.

    Didn't really need to, he knows the model.

    None were a full "Pass" anyway, so I didn't share.

    But one thing it did, after half a dozen targets, made me think I might need to examine my pellets closer.

    I really don't wanna weight/size these friggin' things. I use great ammo so I don't have to. :/

     

    Anyway, not much else left to talk about the Diana 350 'til I get a little more time with it.

     

    I have at least confirmed I like the T06 trigger better than the Rekord.  Personal tastes of course.

    not pleasant out there.  but i so wanna play. :/

     

    I need something quieter than the gear I have.  Something the neighbors won't notice at 11pm, when it's oh, below 80F at least. 😉

    That's a whole new thread.  Or simply google I guess.

    Pdxfrank, congrats on your new toy and hope the two of you bond and have a long happy life. Now in regards to triggers. Lets cut the crap again. I have all three. The Rekord is king and a ball bearing t01 well tuned will smoke the t06. The t06 is real good but will not top the t01. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I've never used a T01.  I'll take your word for it.

     

    But as far as what is the awesomest, is all relative and not worth you crapping over.

     

    I'm fine with just about any trigger.  I prefer to adapt to the gun.
    Besides, even cheap Walmart guns do dime-size groups at 25Y.  I wouldn't notice any real difference until I at least double that I figure.

     

     

    This tale is told.  Anything beyond it is wandering.

    Help me understand this Frank

    You say you prefer to adapt to the gun.  But you refused to adapt to an R9 which you yourself demonstrated COULD pass ten dimes.

    So you traded it for a rifle that was worth less and which has not been shown capable of passing ten dimes.

    Now you again assert any Walleyworld  junker can shoot dime sized groups.

    Welp the one you baited everyone in this thread with should be perfect for you to use to back up that claim.  This is the second time you have cast that turd into the pond in the last six months.

    Still waiting for you to prove the point.

    Or put another way … Anything can shoot one dime sized group if you try long enough.  You had a rifle that could do it almost every time and you got rid of it.

    How does that make sense?

    I never got on well with the R9 either. I had one in .20 caliber. The only one of that type I liked less was the R10. I suppose the bottom line is that if you traded a rifle you didn't enjoy shooting for one you do, it's a fine deal for you.

    That makes two of you or do the two of you make one?

    Nice rifle you got there in that 350 Magnum!  I myself want the ole Model 48, in .22 caliber.  Hopefully, by the end of summer, I will be able to buy that particular one that I have longed for.

    I had one in .177

    It shot hard.  About the best I could get out of it was one inch groups at 25 yards and it was a heavy rifle.  It was well made.

    If I had had it tuned to R9 power levels it would have shot dime sized groups all day.

    Which trigger version are you looking for?
