Things I liked:

The Diana Stormrider is a great little shooter. I have put about 100 rounds (H&N target trophy and JSB Match jumbo express diabolo) so far and had no problems. When the rifle came in I cleaned it, pumped it up and put the first 7 rounds in a 3/4" ctc hole at 50 yards. (I know I can't believe it either) The G7S pump is easy to use and is a quick to 200 bar. I found a video on UTube on how to use a hand pump the guy said to pull the handle up count to one push the handle down count to one repeat. I am 63 years old and this works for me and it keeps the pump cool. I have been shooting B.B and pellet guns for 50+ years and find this little rifle one of the most fun.

Things I would have changed:

Include a extra barrel band with the rifle.

What others should know:

This is a very nice and well made pcp rifle and is well worth the price.

Things I liked:

Have to change my review the gun really sucks! Removed iron sights. Junk. To put a on a scope it took 3/16" shim on rear scope mount to point the scope where the barrels aimed! Some dumb ass engineer doesn't know how make the dove tails level with the barrel! This should be your first warning the guns junk!

Things I would have changed:

Not buying it!

What others should know:

If you get a hand pump make sure you don't have COPD or your going to the hospital.

    Things I liked:

    Accuracy, adjustable trigger, looks, squared forestock

    Things I would have changed:

    Hand pump is single-stage, hard to finish. Magazines too expensive for 2 pieces of plastic with a spring & tiny magnet. Barrel should have a brace in front - it's a fragile setup.

    What others should know:

    The front sight was hard to see with older eyes before I scoped it.

    Things I liked:

    Reviews are mixed at this point. When I first got this rifle, it was incredibly accurate but within a few days, the magazine jammed up and I had to remove the barrel to free it. Since removing and replacing the barrel, accuracy has gone to hell. I'll try it again with fingers crossed. While chambering a difficult round, something in the magazine cracked. No replacements are available right now so I'll have to single load for for the time being. Tigger is decent but with a lot of take-up - pull weight is at 2.5 lbs. Not bad.

    Things I would have changed:

    Magazine issues! Got to be a better way.

    What others should know:

    All in all, a great entry-level PCP gun but bugs remain to be worked out. One can hope!

    Things I liked:

    Great shooter! At 10 yards I can cover 10 shots with a dime! That is using JSB Diabolo Match 14.35gr. Using Crossman Premier 14.7gr Hollow Point I can cover them with a quarter. I get about 28 to 30 shots with a fill unregulated. Shot on squirrel and it died fast!

    Things I would have changed:

    The pump didn't work very well for me!

    What others should know:

    The pump wasn't worth it. after 200 or so pumps it was starting to get into the green.

    Things I liked:

    the price point can't be beat for a PCP & pump. I like the low sound level very quiet. Lite weight even with wood stock which is a PLUS. Smooth adjustable trigger. Plenty of power, easy to fill tank with hand pump. Well made with great accuracy!

    Things I would have changed:

    Need barrel band to stabilize & secure barrel. Fill port needs a cover. Wound be better with regulator.

    Things I liked:

    See below.

    Things I would have changed:

    The pump was not ready and very confusing to assemble. I sent this to me wife and the bag of parts with minimal instructions is frustrating, she still hasn't used it because of the bag of parts for the pump. The pump should arrive pre-assembled. I may return it it because of this. Otherwise the gun looks nice but hasn't been used.

    Things I liked:

    It is awesome. I like the everything about it.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would add an additional barrel support at the end of the air chamber. Just to eliminate the possibility of a bent barrel if something unfortunate were to occur.

    What others should know:

    It is a blast and a great way to enter the air gun sport.

    Great product

    Things I would have changed:

    The front site is a little gaudy. It would be nice to have a front site delete spacer to fit in place of the site since a scope is used on most .

    What others should know:

    This is my second Diana stormrider. The first is .22 caliber. This one was for my stepdad he wanted .177 caliber. I love my .22 with synthetic stock.and the .177 with wood stock is great also. He loves it. I have shot it and both shoot great.

    Things I liked:

    for the price it is a decent gun. Lightweight and easy to use [if gentle]. My Diana model 54 weighs 3 times what this gun does and is made in Germany.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would like to know where it is made up front. Needs better instructions on magazine loading, for people new to air rifles.

    What others should know:

    This is the only repeater I have and have shot, so I am no expert on how to rate this gun.

    Things I liked:

    Everything this is my first pcp alto have shot bb and air guns since I was ten. I must have got a good one

    Things I would have changed:

    Make the bolt handle out of hardened steel mine broke the second day I had it (gen2 .22) called p.a. they wanted me to return the gun instead of sending me a bolt handle I ordered a new one but made my own

    What others should know:

    My gun likes the crossman premier hollow points and the polymag shorts. Haven't tried anything else yet but when you get half inch or less groups at 30 yards why change I can't understand the negative reviews for accuracy as for the hand pump it works for me I live in an area where pcp is forgien to people so no scuba shops for me
