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: The front and rear sights are removable. It may be necessary to remove the rear sight when mounting an optic longer than 10".

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: The rifle is well made. The stock is nice. The bolt pulls nice. It's light. It's quiet in my opinion. I have break barrels that are louder. It's easy to fill. I get about 30 shots per fill. I already had a pcp pump for my TalonP. My Talon will only get about 10 useable shots. The Diana is so much more fun to shoot. It's very accurate with the extra barrel band. Do your research before purchase. It's much more hand pump freindly than my Talon. I put a cheap scope on it and it works great. The trigger on mine is smooth as can be. Better than my Hatsan Quattro's even. I picked this up during Christmas for about 120 bucks on P.A. and won't look back. It's not to pellet picky either.

Things I would have changed: Nothing really at this price point. The extra barrel band should be included but it's only 10 more bucks and a breeze to install.

What others should know: If your getting into PCP just buy this one with the extra barrel band and a economical pump. You won't be disappointed unless your willing to spend 5 to 10 times more. It's pretty addictive. I chose this over the Guantlet due to price point and cc of the air chamber vs pumping. You can't be disappointed if you accept that you bought near the cheapest pcp on the market. It does feel kind of girly compared to my Carnivore .30 but hey it's a lot of fun and out shoots the Carnivore over 30 yards.

Things I liked: I've got Gen1 .177 just to try PCP rifle, price was great and I decided to get it to try. It was my first PCP and so far I like it. Little more noisy that I thought it would be even with heavy pellets but overall good rifle. To keep noise a little lower I'm pumping it to the middle of green sector. Took me some time to figure out how to use magazine. However loading single shots working just fine to me for target shooting. Trigger isn't great but good enough for target, I can pretty much keep 1" in 25 feet from standing position. I'm using hand pump, pumping isn't hard to me, so unless I'll start shooting a lot I would not buy a scuba tank.

Things I would have changed: Rear sign better be easy removable or collapsible for scope installation.

What others should know: Loading mag for the first time may be tricky, could be found on YouTube. Not a toy, hitting hard.

Things I liked: The only thing that I can affirm is that this gun is well-made -- much finer than any break barrel I have owned. It's NOT EXACTLY a repeater, in that you can't just pull the trigger every time -- BUT, it's MUCH better than a break barrel air rifle in that you do not waste time and effort in cocking and putting a ridiculously small pellet into the chamber. STILL, having to seat a new pellet using the bolt is a PITA -- you will lose your positioning (and the quarry) just like with a break barrel.

Things I would have changed: Really, anyone who is using a "single shot" weapon these days is still stuck back in Civil War mentality with Civil War technology. What we ALL really want is a reasonably priced air rifle with 1000fps, that is an "automatic" (where all you have to do is pull the trigger without having to change your grip, whether it's a break barrel or THIS BOLT-ACTION STORMRIDER). This rifle still requires you to change your positioning to activate the bolt to chamber another round. FURTHERMORE, YOU GOTTA KNOW that you will spend an equal amount of money (or more!!!) to buy a pump to charge your cylinder after about 50 shots! What a PITA! You CANNOT use a bicycle pump. FURTHERMORE, pumping it up to 3000 psi AIN'T LIKE PUMPING up a bicycle tire!! In fact, it's so difficult that there are special YouTube videos on how to do it! Huh??!! Oh yah, you can buy a SCUBA tank ($$$) and carry that around to recharge the gun, but then remember, you'll have to periodically get the tank recharged - BARRIER!.

What others should know: The bottom line is that this "repeater" gun is not worth the trouble and continued expense. GET A REAL GUNPOWDER RIFLE, like a .22 for plinking. It's CHEAPER and doesn't have the headaches of a bolt action or having to recharge the cylinder to 3000psi after only 50 shots.

  • dcttrt from USA asked:

    does location of second barrel band on Diana Stormrider matter?

    • Tyler from USA:

      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

  • Ken from USA asked:

    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?

    • Tyler from USA:

      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.

  • Jeffrey from USA asked:

    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.

    • Tyler from USA:

      Sounds like this should be in the review section, but maybe others will find this helpful.
