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".

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Very light weight. The rifle is very accurate with a variety of pellets. It is very accurate with crossman 14.3 HP

Things I would have changed: It would be nice if they would go ahead ant put the extra barrel band on at the factory.

What others should know: I purchased this gun as a light weight rifle for my grandchildren who live on a small ranch. I did not expect this quality or accuracy for this price It will shoot .3 tents of an inch at 20 yards using the inexpensive Crossman HP that I get at Wal-Mart for $5,80 for 500.

Things I liked: Accuracy is great. Dime sized groups or smaller at 5ft. It is the only rifle available in this class with good iron sights and repeater action. Trigger is very good, mine is 2.5lbs out of the box. Two stage trigger with a nice predictable release.

Things I would have changed: Bolt action is a little notchy at the end of travel. I suspect either the magazine design or the hard o-ring at the breach. Also the leade to the throat /chamber was very rough, looked like it was machined by a beavers teeth. Had to smooth with a dremel. Barrel does appear to droop some, likely because of the thin barrel with a good size moderator on the end. I installed a second barrel band, which raised the POI considerably and also made shot to shot consistency better. Rifle shot fine without these mods, but is smoother and more accurate with them.

What others should know: Mine is already heavily modified. I installed Tech Sights rear sight part #TSM120A, which fit perfectly and did not require a new front sight. The aperture rear sight makes for much better accuracy in my opinion. I also installed a regulator set to 140psi and I am getting about 30 shots in .22 cal using benjamin premier ultra magnums with an average velocity of 850FPS. I also added a second barrel band, as indicated above, and might play with positioning it to see if it impacts accuracy. So far I am really liking it. It is quiet enough for backyard shooting, quieter than my airforce escape ss in 22. But, be very aware of your backstop because this rifle is VERY powerful, this is no daisy red rider. Absolutely treat this as you would a firearm. Without the mods this is a good trainer rifle, with the mods above it is a serious hunting and field target tool. Very pleased.
