I went to install the front barrel band and managed to split the O-rings on the barrel. I even broke the replacement ones before I found the spur on the barrel that was cutting them. Now I need some more - where can I get?? TIA!!
To install the barrel band you remove the barrel. Loosen the set screws on the top of the receiver. Slide the barrel out. Put the barrel band on and reinstall the barrel.
Can you charge this with a standard construction work air compressor? If so do you need anything special, adaptor etc.?
Standard shop compressors only go to 150 PSI. You need 3000-4500 PSI to fill a PCP airgun.
How many shots is this capable of between refills?
In .177 - 40 shots. In 22 cal -30 shots
Anyone use this for airgun silhouettes offhand?
I only had the stormrider2 about month put around 50 pellets through it and it seems that power has went way down.the barrel moves all over the place.whats going on.is the stormrider a piece of xxxx rifle?
You have a 60 day return window on your purchase. Return it, it is defective. https://www.pyramydair.com/contact-us
I have the new Diana storm rider gen2 in .22 Cal and I had to remove the barrel to install a second barrel band and was wondering if the barrel has a third O ring in the small air port hole. Because I didn't see one when I pulled the barrel out and just seen the two O rings around the barrel. If there is to be an O ring there how do I find it to but it.
Here is the schematic: https://www.pyramydair.com/model-schematic/m/Diana_Stormrider_Multi_shot_PCP_Air_Rifle/4449
It`s possible to buy just the barrel?. Does it fit the threads in the Diana Bandit pistol?
Have the general issues with this gun been fixed? Only really problem I seen was bolt breaking really
Current production comes with an upgraded bolt.
What is the LOP on this rifle? Would it be suited for a 9 year old boy?
13 1/2". You can cut the stock short.
Diana Stormrder Gen 2 has recall for 1400 units, how can I know that I the one I will purchase at PA is not on the recall list. Thanks. -Nate from NY
All current production guns have the new tougher bolt handle and trigger modification from the factory.
Is the moderator removable on the gen 2 as I know it is on the gen one
The moderators are supposed to be glued on. Some can be removed. Some can not.
has anyone come up with a good dust cover for the air port for the Diana stormrider?
Yes, I've found them on ebay.
Is there a good disassembly guide or video for the Diana Stormrider?
Diana Stormrider gen2 has broken bolt handle on fresh air charge. Cant cock and fire to degas how do I remove bolt to repair?
Same thing happened to mine. I have the remedy with photos on GTA forum but I'll give yu the short version. EZ-out the remaining threads and bolt, then it's as easy as screwing your new bolt in from hardware store of your choice. Can't remember exact size off hand but it's a common and easy one to find. Matter of fact I'm still using the bolt from the store that I first fixed it with. I just black taped the threads that were exposed and it's no problem. Don't call anyone, just get er done bud.
I would call Air Venturi warranty line
What is the o ring size on the fill probe?
4 x 1.5 MM
When will this be in stock? Ive been waiting to buy this for 3 months
There was a safety issue in the gun. Now rectified. We will have the gun in stock in the next 2-3 weeks.
I wanted to know if the gun came with an air pump and a scope before i buy it
The ultimate bundle has those items .
What hind of scope for this rifle stormrider a godd one medium mount
Medium rings will be a good fit.
Medium rings will be a good fit.
Medium rings will be a good fit.
I need the seal kit for this rifle in Generation II (O-rings pack) Could you send me the link to buy it?
is there a peep sight that will fit this rifle?
The Williams Peep sight Williams Diopter Sight... will fit.
Is it possible to convert the stormrider to CO2?
Should I store this gun with the bolt open or closed? And is it ok to decock with trigger or should I just dry fire?
It decocks easily with trigger. Store with bolt closed
Does the rear iron sight sit on a dovetail? If not, is there a way to swap it out for another iron sight?
The sight is held in bay a screw and tension. There is no other sight unit available that fits the mount. You can fabricate an adapter.
Does anyone know the muzzle thread on the gen 2 in .22?
The thread is 10 x1 mm . The moderator is red loctited on at the factory. Very hard to get off.
I MOSTLY SHOOT, POINTED, OR HOLLOW POINT PELLETS, AND I HAVE A 177 CAL DIANA, SO WHICH PELLETS DO YOU AIRGUNNERS RECOMMEND FOR ACCURACY, GUN HAS THE PUNCH AND I GET SOME ACCURACY BUT WANTED TO SEE WHAT PELLETS OTHERS USE
I've found that pointed pellets generally are NOT the most accuracy chose i would recommend a high quality domed pellet.
The most accurate pellet is a trial and error process. You shoot different pellets until you find the best performer.
My Diana stormrider is two days old. First day i filled up to 200 bar, next morning it was empty. Filled again, shot 13 rounds today , showed 1/2 tank.Put it back in case two hours layer showed 1/4 tank. This can't be normal? BILL
IDK why nobody answers but obviously is leaky hopefully still under warranty.
I filled the cylinder last night woke up to no air? This is only second fill.
Any chance of getting a updated break down that you can read, of 2nd gen gun. Two items fell out of gun when I broke it down a vribration washer and very small screw there is no place for the screw to fit??
I am by no means a expert but the same happen to me. If the small screw you refer to is actually a pin it belongs in the rear portion of the trigger assembly and and hold the cocking latch in place - you will see the hole the pin goes in. You must have removed the stock with the gun uncocked - very sensible - but in this case wrong as that pin will just fall out. The anti vibration washer goes the longest screw that holds the stock to the barrel assembly that just falls off too - no help for it. I am trying to get the barrel removed to add a second barrel bad but there seems to be too much force required so I think I am missing something - I was told only the three screws in the top of the breach and the barrel band hold it on but it won't budge.
Do you deliver air gun product to India ? If you do how much you charge for delivery
Is it necessary to have a moisture removal devise when using a hand pump to prevent moisture entering the cylinder and damaging the gun?
Dose it come with the pump
We have a pump combo here: Diana Stormrider Multi-shot PCP Air...
YES DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO TUNE OR ADJUST THE POWER ON THIS GUN ?? I THINK THE 177 CAL WOULD SHOOT MORE ACCURATE @ ABOUT 900-975 FPS
There are a few methods to achieve this. You could alter the size of the transfer port or reduce the hammer spring.
does location of second barrel band on Diana Stormrider matter?
To find out, you would need to test it in various locations. Though, it may not be the same from gun to gun. Some may find one position works better for their gun while others will find another. It's really something you need to test for yourself
Can a second barrel band be added to a gen2 model? If so is removal of the barrel required to perform the installation? Are there instructions available that outline the steps to follow?
Yes, you would need to remove the barrel. It's super easy. Just loosen the set screws on the top of the breech that hold the barrel in. Pull the barrel off. Install your barrel band and put the barrel back in through the hole in the band.
I bought a Stormrider. There were some small issues which were addressed quickly. I found that the entrance to the barrel had a burr on mine, but I took my barrel off of the gun and used my dremel with a polishing bit and the "fliers" stopped.
Sounds like this should be in the review section, but maybe others will find this helpful.
Where can I purchase a new moderator for this gun?
Gen 1 or 2?
Can anyone give better clarification or information about the o-rings on the 1st Gen Diana Stormrider than is seen in the on-line schematic? I took the barrel off to install a second barrel band and want to ensure the rubber o-ring I re-installed was positioned correctly at the head of the barrel.
No, it's best in my experience to insert the breech o-ring into the breech end of the barrel and then install the barrel into the breech with the o-ring on it.
Tyler, do you mean to say it goes into the breech and then the barrel is inserted into the o-ring?
It goes just inside of the breech end of the barrel and is held in place when the barrel is inserted into the breech
I'm searching for the after market bolt with the handle at the very rear. Can't seem to find one. If you've done this please leave a link where I can buy one.
The only bolts you'll find on PA are the OEM replacement
I love this stormrider. 22 but the pellets breach very hard. I'm using premier hollow points, does anybody else have this problem? What did you do?
I also had this issue. For some reason, the barrel wasn't on correctly. I took the barrel off to check for any issues and all I did was put it back on and the issue resolved itself.
Do you mean they are hard to load? They are very hard pellets, so that may be a part of it. I have seen this on Stormriders before, typically the lead in on the barrel is rough and needs to be polished up, this can help ease loading tremendously.
Is this gun in the gen 1 .177 quiet enough not to scare deer if I were to use it for squirrel while in the deer woods?
Gen 1 guns are not real quiet unless an aftermarket moderator is added.
Is anyone aware of after-market stocks (for smaller shooters) that would fit this gun?
don't know of after-market stocks, but, if you gave the beechwood stock, shortening is relatively easy, especially if you have a bandsaw: decide how much has to come off for the new fit (don't forget the thickness of the buttplate), mark the stock, slice it off - ensuring the stock remains level during the process. you can do it with a handsaw or a jigsaw, but it's more work and hard to get an accurate straight cut. good luck.
I have not seen any as of yet
I've recently purchased the gen 2 .22 cal stormrider. After pumping the first time filing to 2900 it leaks air out of the fill port. I replaced the small o ring inside the fill port. It still leaks. I use a small spray of ballistol when reassembling. I only gave it a very light tightening as it was fairly easy to back out. Could it be im not tightening it enough. I can't read the schematic provided in the pa links so I'm unsure of proper nomenclature.
Had the same problem with mine so I put 2 rings in it and that done the trick
I've removed cleaned and reassembled with a little tighter twist and it's sealed up!
Yes, it is possible that it is still not tight enough. If you tighten it further and it is still leaking, give the tech department a call.
how do you adjust the trigger on the gen 2 ?
screw in trigger
Does anyone know if this scope will fit: UTG 3-9x32 AO Bug Buster Rifle Scope, EZ-TAP, Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 1" Tube, Weaver/Picatinny Rings https://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/UTG_3_9x32_AO_Bug_Buster_Rifle_Scope_EZ_TAP_Illuminated_Mil_Dot_Reticle_1_4_MOA_1_Tube_Weaver_Picatinny_Rings/4721 Any other recommended scopes for this rifle? Thanks
Just buy 11mm Airgun rings. I have a Bug Buster on mine and it works great! Be sure you get rings high enough to clear the magazine. I think mine are medium.
no needs 11 mm
What the differance gen1 gen2?
Gen 1 does not have an adjustable trigger and the moderator is not effective. You will know its a Gen 1 if the front sight blade is on the front of the moderator. The Gen 2 front sight blade is at the rear of the moderator. In addition, the Gen 2 has a bigger bolt handle... however, it is very delicate and will break off easily (mine did).
will the gen two bolt fit the gen one guns?
do the .177cal and the .22cal use the same barrel band, is the barrel the same outer diameter?
Where can I get parts for the Diana Stormrider ??
Call the tech department at PA, they have a lot of the parts
What is the country of origin?
Is the extended moderator on this generation 2 stormrider much more effective than the generation 1 moderator? Last year I eliminated buying the gen1 gun because most people said that moderator was not effective at all. So just checking to see if this upgrade made a difference.Thanks
The Gen 2 is much much quieter. Backyard friendly.
Thank you Tyler, going to be buying that today.
Yes, much more effective!
Can you mount a bipod to this Rifle?
You'd want to install a swivel stud into the stock of the rifle, then most UTG bipods will be able to fit with the adapter plate they come with
Can you use a bicycle pump for this Rifle?
An actual bike pump, no. A high pressure bike pump like the Hill or Benjamin, yes.
Can you use any type of pump to full the air Rifle?
Any of the high pressure hand pumps available at PA will be capable of filling the stormrider.
Has anybody put peep sights on it and used it in a 10 M Competition? Does anybody make a better trigger for it?
Can't speak to the 10m comp question, but there is a new version coming with a two stage adjustable trigger
how many shots can you make with a full tank in .22 cal
You can do 15-20 good shots before I'd recommend refilling. About 40-50 shots max before you'd be out of air
What is the diameter of the outside of the barrel, to fit threaded barrel adaptor?
Where can I get the second barrel band that is supposed to improve the accuracy by preventing the barrel from moving?
Looks like it's online now: Diana Stormrider Barrel Band...
I haven't seen the parts online yet, I'd recommend giving the PA Tech department a call, if they have them on hand, they should be able to get you one.
I have managed to loose the single shot tray on my stormrider and pyramyd air don't sell them, where can I buy a new one ?
They will be available online shortly.
The spare O rings included with this gun in mm I.D. X wall are: 5 13x3 1 13x2 2 7x.8 2 6x2 2 4x1.5 1 5x1,5 seat Since mine is the .22 cal, I assume the 4x1.5 is the bolt seal. I'd think someone at PA would identify them. jd
Is this gun too small for an adult to use
I suppose it depends on the size of the adult, but I would say no. Anyone can use this gun pretty easily.
Can I use a benjamin hand pump to fill this gun?
Does this gun allow degassing?
There is no tool to do this with, so the best way would be to simply shoot it down to empty
There was no parts listing or internal picture diagrams, but there were a large number of seals of various sizes and types included with my rifle. Should a parts list and diagram have been included? If not, where can I get them?
I can't read this schematic, is there another link to a legible schematic.
No, there is not one included with the gun. Schematic can be found here: https://www.pyramydair.com/model-schematic/m/Diana_Stormrider_Multi_shot_PCP_Air_Rifle/4449
How do you remove the front sight for installation of a scope?
use medium high mount/rings - that should do it. that way you still have the iron sights should something happen to your scope.
Front sight? It wouldn't be in your way. But you can remove the blade via the allen screw on the top of it. If you mean't the rear sight, that's also one screw (just remove the elevation adjustment by turning counter clockwise) then you can slide the rear sight off the dovetail. It may require some gentle taps with a mallet to get it moving.
Are there any aftermarket bolts ? maybe bigger and stronger metal
Not that I have seen....check out one of the airgun forums like the GTA to see if anyone has info on aftermarket bolts.
I just ordered one of these, along with the G7 pump. Can't wait! Although the higher 2900 psi pressure than a Discovery for example, at 2000, how difficult is hand pumping from empty to full pressure with the small 100cc air tube? About how many strokes? Just curious what to expect. Thanks in advance!
The gun actually comes with some air already in the tank and is not empty as it shouldn't be, ever. That said, it takes only about 40 to 50 relatively easy pumps with a hand pump to fill it to 2900 PSI.
This appears to be a long barrel with no support (except a rear site devise very close to the breech). Doesn't this make it very fragile, ie, susceptible to bending if used for hunting?
If you treat it like a gun should always be treated even when hunting out in the field, then you have nothing to worry about. On the other hand if you tend to toss your gun around and treat it badly then any gun is likely to get damaged.
Not really. There is an A frame support (where the rear sight sits) that would keep the barrel from moving too much in the event you run into something.
Just how loud is this gun, especially the 22.
I bought this gun in .177 caliber a few weeks ago and tested it with a chrony from full 2900 PSI down to 1500 PSI and I can tell you the sound level rises and falls in relation to the speed of the pellet. From 2900 down to about 2500 pretty quiet, then gets louder until about 1800 PSI and then starts to get relatively quiet again after that. As for the muzzle speed with JSB Exact, at 2900 is about 760 fps then maxes out at about 990 fps and after hanging around in the upper 900s for about 10 shots starts to fall again.
If you watch the product video at 8 minute 2 sec, says 105 db
is there a scope/ring combination that will allow using the sights with the scope mounted?
You might be able to use the sights if you use high see-through rings with a scope no larger than 32 millimeters objective lens.
Watch Tylers video it should answer your question?
Also my magazine broke on first day. Spring got twisted in weird way. Does anyone els have this problem with mag?
I've seen it happen with this style of magazine before. Call up Pyramyd and get an RMA.
Does anyone have an issue with the bolt being so hard to click back. Mine is extremely difficult. Very hard to click all the way. Any suggestions?
Check out the bolt handle, its easy to bend, and mine had to be taken apart to access the allen head screw on the bolt itself, it was too tight
Between that and the magazine, I would recommend calling Pyramyd and getting it swapped out.
how to remove rear sight for mounting scope
It may be necessary to tap the sight off using a mallet.
I am sorry this is not an answer. The rear sight does not slide off from the dovetail even after I removed the elevation screw. I tried heating the plastic sight body to expand it but no avail. I need a working method, too.
If you remove the screw that adjusts the elevation by turning counter clockwise, the sight can be removed by just sliding it off of the dovetail.
Will full length Predator Polymags/Metalmags fit the .22 cal rotary magazine?
I have noticed that the longer pointed and domed pellets work best in my 22 magazine, short pellets with flat or shallow bases seem to jam on mine
What scope rings are suggested for this rifle?
That depends on what scope you are mounting, but I would recommend either Leapers dovetail or BKL rings for this rifle.
think a maraauder or umerx gauntlet mag would fit it ?
Could we install a TKO MUZZLE BRAKE without damaging the rifle, and is the barrel threaded. thank you
I bought this gun under a different OEM brand but it's the exact same gun just not branded Diana.. yes TKO LDC fits on it perfectly BUT the stock mod is a nightmare to get off... I bought this gun as a project gun.. with some work, tuning, Mod'ing and time.. this can be a very accurate gun.. we built a regulator for it, reg putting out 1390psi, from a 3150psi fill it gets 26 shots with a SD of 2 and ES of 8 at 29.7ftlbs with JSB 18.13s... we lead lapped the barrel and then cut a nice fresh 11 degree crown on the barrel and now this gun will shoot sub 1/2 inch 5 shot groups at 50 yards all day long, 10 shot groups will be well under an inch. We even got the trigger to preform well, is it one if my FX guns trigger? Not by a long shot but it's a more then usable 1.2lb zero creep single stage trigger, trigger feels just like a nice bench rest powder burners trigger.
What is the outside diameter of the barrel, without the muzzle brake ?
Is the barrel threaded to accept an after market moderator?
@Tyler. A little modification then. Thanks.
Can this gun in .22 kill am iguana
Within a relatively close distance 20-30 yards, it should be more than capable as long as you can take a head shot
Is the Diana Stormrider .177 eligible for import into India?
LOL! Ever think that exclusively using JSB's might be the most efficient pellet to show air guns peak accuracy? it seems 98 out of 100 times. guns get the best groups w/ them lol! not really a ? just a long term observation.
Half of my rifles have better accuracy with H&N pellets.
Each gun is different, but good pellets often show good results. But yes, JSB's are often a go to when testing a gun for accuracy regardless of the caliber
Is it possible to adjust the velocity on this rifle?
THXS AIRGUN JUNKIE, YOU JUST ANSWERED MY QUESTION
You can buy aftermarket regulators for it. I think HUMA maybe?
Are extra mags available and if so how much are they?
any way to but a scope on this stormrider
Yes, it has an 11mm dovetail for mounting scopes.
that rifle is a PR900W from snowpeak chines air rifle?
Yes, just branded as a Diana. But with PA's customer service. Buy it and a couple of mags and don't look back.
