Crosman Diamondback SBD Air Rifle, NP Elite
Benefits of the Nitro Piston over a metal mainspring:
Poised and ready to strike, the Crosman Diamondback brings silenced shooting to your plinking sessions and lethal hits to small game.
Featuring Crosman’s latest airgun tech, the Diamondback offers an improved Silencing Barrel Device (SBD), an innovative suppressor design that keeps its shots 3x quieter than other breakbarrels in its class. The Diamondback also includes Crosman’s latest gas piston technology, the Nitro Piston Elite–a powerplant reported to provide shooters with 15% more speed, 35% more power, and 2x the accuracy of standard gas pistons. This improved power system translates to up to 23 FPE in .177 caliber and an impressive 29 FPE in .22.
All these additions are set into an all-weather stock with a pistol style grip, this breakbarrel includes integrated sling mounts for easy transportation with the addition of a sling (not included). For optics, the Diamondback offers a lot of choices with its open sights for out-of-the-box shooting and the included CenterPoint® 4x32 mm scope for the 11mm Dovetail. Release all this energy with Crosman’s Clean Break Trigger (CBT), a 2-stage adjustable that can be customized to your preferred pull. Once ready to fire, you can expect lead pellet velocities from you can expect lead velocities up to 1,150 fps in .177 and 950 in .22 with lead pellets.
If you want an easy-to-use backyard that keeps shots high-powered and quiet, choose the Diamondback and sling hard-hitting venom at the range!

Things I liked: Powerful - (I am used to UK - Sub 12Ft/Lbs. limited) - Mine is the US Spec, 1100 FPS with 0,22 Cal. Pretty accurate except as others mentioned the Centrepoint scope that shipped with mine was junk. I put a Nikko 6-12 x 50 and it is much better. Build quality was not as good as expected (I have the Crosman 766 the 761XL and the 1322 - all are better made) After barely breaking it in, between 100-200 shots one of the two M5 Crosshead screws that secure the forearm to the cylinder sheared off- This could not be extracted and had to be drilled out - I retapped this for a 5/16" Hardened hex bolt and tightened it up and it seems better- Check these two screws and the one securing the stock as even though they are fitted with Loctite Blue, these come loose! - I cannot return mine for warranty repair as I am not in the UK or USA at the moment and would probably have the gun seized if it was found during shipment. This gun likes H&S Super Field and Superdome, it is OK with Hobby, NOT Superpoint
Things I would have changed: Bigger bolts, at least M6 or M8 to secure stocks. Better trigger, it is horrible and not a real two stage as far as I can tell, more like a loose one stage with a nasty jumpy pull. I would forget the "FREE" scope and either discount it or ship it with free pellets and gun oil.
What others should know: You guys are getting it in the USA for a good price, this thing cost me $535.00 USD where I am as these are not really legal to use - It actually comes with a sticker on the box that covers the "1100 FPS" printing by Crosman and has a sticker on it saying "Less than 2 Joules - For Asia: ! - LESS THAN 2 JOULES, yeah right.
Things I liked: The rifle is very accurate with high-quality rounds. Cleaned barrel and the performance is better than expected. Owning 7 different air rifles, I would say this gun is the best rifle for the money. It would be my first choice for a gift or first air rifle. I now shoot this rifle as my primary gun, given accuracy and performance, with 8gn ballistic tip rounds--perfect weight.
Things I liked: This pellet rifle completely ROCKS! .22 Caliber and tearing up the place. I was surprised how quiet it is and I wonder about the Platinum level of noise suppression? Must be really quiet. I am surprised with the accuracy. I used the iron sights at first and they rock but took forever to dial in, so I switched to the scope and it took a while too but I am nailing dime size groups at 30 yards and tearing metal butane cans to shreds at 50 yards! I have soda cans hanging off of the barbed wire fence about 60 yards out and I see the pellets kicking up sand a good 20 yards past them, up hill a bit when I miss those. This gun has range, and it is accurate at range. It is throws heavy lead too. I stick in the 15-16 grain range, but I have 20 grain pellets too and they are accurate as can be in a heavy wind and through brush.
Things I would have changed: I tried resetting the trigger to more of a hair trigger and the screw broke apart. So, I would suggest a higher quality screw be used in adjustment spots. I did get an eighth of a turn before it came apart and that helped the trigger pull immensely.
What others should know: Great value! Incredible range and accuracy to boot. I was surprised how much stronger this .22 caliber Crosman Diamondback is than my pump action .177 760. Crazy differences!

Is this rifle made in the USA or China?
Assembled in the US. Significant Chinese parts.
Im stuck on caliber choice on this one. Most of my guns are CO2 and have much lower velocities. I prefer .177 as I don't hunt and target shoot only. Noise is a major consideration. My concern about the .177 is that it may be generally louder than the .22 as it is traveling faster (sonic boom?). I don't really want to have to buy special heavier .177 pellets just to keep the speed and noise level down. Can anyone offer insight into the difference in noise between the two calibers at this velocity level?
Shoot a heavy .177 cal pellet ,around 10 gr . You will stay below the speed of sound.
what is the effective range of this gun? can i shoot down rabbit from 100 yards?
A more realistic lethal range is 35-45 yards.
