Lay down a shower of lead with the Diana Stormrider!

Since 1892, Diana has produced high-quality airguns that are as reliable as they are accurate. While the Stormrider may not be their first PCP, it’s certainly the most budget-friendly. With a straightforward, no-frills design, the Stormrider’s combination of repeating shots and great features make it a serious contender for one of the best entry-level PCPs.

The first thing you’ll notice is the quality of the German beech stock. It’s sturdy and contoured with checkering on the grip and forend. With a thickness of 1.5 inches wide and a total weight of 5lbs, the Stormrider is easy to handle for shooters young and old.

Hands down, the best feature of this Diana is its repeating shots. Simply load up the rotary magazine and slide it into the breech which secures it into place magnetically. With 9 shots in .177 and 7 in .22, cycle to a new round with a quick flick of the bolt action. Once you charge up the 200 BAR (2900 psi) cylinder, you can send rounds downrange at 1,050 fps (.177) and 900 fps (.22). Additionally, if you want to shoot one shot at a time, a single-shot tray is included. It also includes open sights with a fully adjustable rear sight and an 11mm dovetail for mounting your own optics.

If you’ve wanted your own PCP airgun but the price has held you back, the Stormrider gives you a budget-friendly PCP design that lives up to the Diana name.

Tech Tip: For Gen 1. models, the front and rear sights are removable. It may be necessary to remove the rear sight when mounting an optic longer than 10".  On Gen. 2 models, the rear sight is still removable. 

Please note: Gen. 2 Stormrider packages incorrectly list the overall length as 38.5" while the correct overall length is 40.5" for this version due to the longer moderator. The correct overall length for the Gen. 1 Stormrider is 38.5".

Things I liked: I'm an experienced shooter (military-VFW, law enforcement, armorer). This is my first PCP rifle and purchased as "plinker" to shoot with my family at targets. I was tired of constantly pumping air rifles or buying CO2 and thought I would give PCP rifles a try since coming down in price the last year or so. I'm very happy with purchase: Affordable, good quality, shoots great, accurate and easy to operate. On a full take, I had about 55 shots. The last 10 still pierced tin cans but not all the way through both sides. That said, having an air rifle with 30-40 shots with power is nice.

Things I would have changed: The magazine works - but it's not good quality. After fooling with it a few tries - I found it easier to use. However, I found loading pellets one at a time no issue at all. My teenage son, using magazine for first time, ended up forcing two pellets into chamber and I had to use rod. It was interesting since bolt couldn't engage and magazine couldn't be removed. The magazine was likely not properly seated and bolt couldn't fully engage, so he re-cocked it and the rest is history. I was able to duplicate the problem easily. Suggestion, load only 3-5 pellets until you get used to using the magazine.

What others should know: Pumping for first time was interesting. Rife came 3/4th full and not having any experience - pumping at that high of pressure for first time was not easy. I expected the pumping to be easier than it actually is. Once I cycled the initial air pressure, the pumping wasn't as difficult. It takes about 80-90 pumps to fully charge and the last 20 take some work;) However, once you get used to it - it's not a problem.

Things I liked: Its a great gun, especially for the price. It shoots a dime size 7 shot group at 50 feet. During the lockdown, its kept me sane with my local range closed. I made a silent pellet trap and dont bother the neighbors

Things I would have changed: If it came with a built in regulator it would be even better. I have ordered one, theyll be available in November, I hope

What others should know: The little spring catch in the magazine broke after less than 200 shots. It still works but I contacted Pyramid about it who referred me to the manufacturer and I havent heard from anyone. I think pyramid should have handled it. I tried to order 2 new ones and they arent available. Kind of a bummer

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: 1. Accuracy - quite accurate using .22 Crosman Premier Hollow Point 14.3 gr. Pellets. These pellets also feed easily from the magazine 2. Optional regulator With the regulator set at 110 BAR I get about thirty shots at 705 FPS with 14.3 gr CPHP pellets. 15.7 FPE, plenty of power for squirrels at the ranges that I shoot. 3. Size and weight easy to pick up to shoot the squirrels on the bird feeders. Much handier than my Marauder. 4. Multi shot – If I miss with that first shot at a squirrel (yes, it happens!) I can immediately take a second shot. 5. Silencer – the integral silencer is highly effective. Typically, all I hear when I shoot the rifle is the sound of the hammer and impact of the round. 6. My outfit consisting of a Stormrider and a 3-12 Bug Buster scope is really quite elegant looking!

Things I would have changed: 1. I did not see the quality problems that others have mentioned. The only problem that I had was that the little screw that holds the breech on fell out. When I tried to replace it, it would not tighten. Fortunately, PA accidently sent me a replacement breech kit in a previous order. The kit contained a screw. I was able to firmly secure the replacement screw. It has stayed secure. I would keep an eye on that area of the rifle. 2. The lack of a cover for the fill port is a potential problem. There is a sleeve on the replacement pressure gauge that supposedly rotates the cover the holes. But when the gauge is secured on the pressure tube, the sleeve doesnt rotate. I bought a protective plug off of eBay. 3. The fill probe did not fit the original female foster fitting on my filler unit. I had another that worked OK. 4. The replacement magazines are rather expensive.

What others should know: My Stormrider is a .22 with a regulator. I had PA do the original installation of the regulator. Based on a review in Hard Air Magazine, I requested that they set it at 125 BAR. This setting did not give the results that the magazine article indicated. I reset the regulator to 110 BAR and got, for me, much more satisfactory results. Working with the regulator is not complicated but extracting and replacing it in the pressure tube is a pain in the rear. The earlier model of the Stormrider had real problems with the bolt handle bending/breaking. The newer model that I have has an improved bolt handle. Some people are still reporting problems. I have not had any (yet). When retracting the bolt, I grasp the bolt handle right next to the bolt to reduce the leverage on the bolt handle. When loading a pellet, I push the rear of the bolt forward with my thumb. This method was suggested in an earlier review.

  • Herman from USA asked:

    Is this compatible with the stormrider gen 2 .22 cal "DIANA 3X42 Green Red Dot Sight Scope 2X40 Red Dot 3X44 Tactical Optics".

    • Mark from USA:

      The Stormrider has a 11 mm optics rail. The Diana red dot fits the 11mm optics rail.

  • Brent from USA asked:

    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!!

    • Mark from USA:

      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.

  • Ned from USA asked:

    Can you charge this with a standard construction work air compressor? If so do you need anything special, adaptor etc.?

    • Mark from USA:

      Standard shop compressors only go to 150 PSI. You need 3000-4500 PSI to fill a PCP airgun.
