The muzzle on my Airbug is held on with a grub screw accessed from the bottom. That suggests very strongly to me that there are no threads.

The Buck Rail is more than likely correct. I've gotten a number of items from him and they all fit perfectly and were printed in a high-quality mode.

I'd trust him.

I can confirm that the Airbug does NOT have a threaded barrel.

Expect some drop after installing it. Mine was shooting about 4-5" low at 10y.

On the good side, my dog stopped complaining.

About the noise, about the noise !!!!

I've had the Crossman 2300S for a few weeks. I really like it. I ordered the GravMag from the chap in Great Britain. It came in this week. The mag is very pellet specific and most of my pellet varieties won't work in it (.177). I do have some flat heads that will feed in the mag. Frankly, if one were to simply look at the two pistols you'd think the Diana was the more expensive.

You can see I've added a Match Dot II to the Crosman. The Crosman was nearly 2.5x's the price of the Diana. The Diana fit and finish (metal) is better. While the Diana stock is beech, it is finished quite nicely and feels good, albeit just a bit beefy for my medium-sized hands. The Diana is on top.

The only bad thing for me in these recent purchases, I ordered a Diana Airbug from airgunns.com (yep, 2 s's) on December 22nd. I still haven't received it and the vendor isn't returning e-mails, there is no phone number, and lo and behold, when I googled reviews for this vendor, they aren't good. So, I ordered the 2nd one from PyramidAir with whom I've bought many airguns in the past.

I'm going to shoot these through FX chrony at 10 paces with a rest for accuracy and "power" comparison. I'll report back here with what I find.

BTW. I can't believe the Diana is so economical at $129! I bought my grandson a Chaser for Christmas. I'll probably put it through the same comparison as I note above.

I have a 2400XL (with GravMag) and an Airbug. The Airbug is by far the better tool.

I have big hands, so the Airbug's grips are good. I'd still like to make a custom replacement that doesn't have the block at the bottom (it's in my way).

Best of all, the bolt is on the correct side. It's obvious the Crosman is just re-using rifle parts. For the price you'd think they'd flip things over for the 90% of us that aren't lefties.

OTOH, my left-handed son finds the Crosman a better fit for him.

Just picked up an Airbug from Pyramyd Air. With a rail (3D printed) and a red dot it's a shooter. Great value for 130 bucks. Chose it over a Crosman 2240XL. Check out the Buck Rail blog on what he has coming for an AR style collapsible stock/grip conversion for the Chaser, Bandit, and Airbug.

Airgunns.com is a scam site. They have actually stolen the identity of Airguns of Texas, a legitimate airgun business. Hopefully you used a credit card to get your $$ back.
