I bought this rifle for backyard plinking with nearby neighbors. its fits the bill perfectly and would recommend to others.

1- overall the rifle feels solid, it think it will last 2- its accurate with the iron sights, as well as decent scope (not included) 3- fairly quite compared to other air rifles 4- a good trigger for this price point, much better than others i've felt in the same price range. 5- powerful and accurate with the crosman .22 hollow points

1- the plastic scope that comes with it is trash, it broke after 20 shots. 2- the rifle is fairly heavy 3- the plastic stock feels a little thin in the pistol grip and the foregrip 4- the adjustable rear iron sight feel a little flimsy 5- it looks a little too tacticool for my likely

just that it's a all around good break barrel , quiet enough for back yard plinking or small game hunting. supervise those who have never shot this . could do some real damage or kill in the wrong hands...

powerful , averages around 860 fps (24 fpe) reasonably heavy , about 8.5 pounds(i like that , better control) tactical look . shoots quarter inch groups at 50 yds. with14.3 crosman hollow points , seems to like heavier pellets too (14grain to 21 grain)

better trigger, although this one is not at all bad but could be better, heavy , not a con but get a sling ! Get a 3x9x40 ao scope , you will be glad you did. some kick ,but ok

By Jason Jaggers April 22, 2023 Verified Purchase

Get a good quality scope, by the time you add up cheaper scopes, plus frustration, it's better to just buy a good scope

Power, quietness,hefty,and accurate

Better scope, I've gone through 5 so far

I ordered the 22cal. Crosman Diamondback rifle with no scope from PA on Jan. 14, 2023, I received it on Jan. 18, 2023. The accuracy was poor at first and the trigger was not too good. I backed out the trigger adjustment screw, 1/4 turn at a time until I achieved a long but light trigger pull. It took around 100 shots for the rifle to break in. The rifle gets better the more I shoot it.

Poor accuracy at first but it is fairly accurate and reasonably quiet now. With a little work this rifle turned out real nice. At present this rifle will hold a quarter sized shot group at 30 yards. The rifle is sighted in with 22cal Crosman 14.3 gr. Hollow Point pellets. I had ordered the no scope option. I mounted 3-9x40 AO scope on this rifle. The cocking effort is not too bad but it could be better. I have a Crosman Summit Ranger NP2 rifle that is a little easier to cock.

The rifle weighs 8 1/2 pounds with out a scope and 9 1/2 pounds with a 3-9 x 40 AO scope. I don't think much of the fake magazine. At some point I think I will remove it. There were a lot of sharpe edges that had to be smoothed out. The open rifle sights needed work, the front sight was the same color as the rear sight. To give the sights some contrast, I tipped the front sight with high visibility fingernail polish. The fingernail polished worked out well. They are sighted in at 10 yards.

By Delbert EngelhardFebruary 26, 2023 Verified Purchase

I don't recommend it.

The iron sights are nice... and the pistol-grip stock.

It is very hard to cock; gas piston should be much easier. and it bucks like a mule.

By RayJanuary 7, 2023 Verified Purchase

I tried FX 15gr pellets but that weren't as accurate as the Crosman are, gonna stick with the Crosman hollow points,14.3gr since they're very accurate

Very accurate rifle, I bought this to replace a Benjamin Summit NP .22 that stopped shooting (worn out NP, old rifle) and I wasn't disappointed! I'm getting 841fps with the Crosman Premier hollow points, sighted in for 65yrds and it's shooting quarter size groups! I got the rifle without the scope and put a UTG 3x9x40 on it, it is scary accurate for a break barrel. I'd say it's back yard friendly not very loud but not as quiet as the Benjamin Summit was. I'd definitely buy this rifle again

The trigger sux just a bunch, I tried to adjust it and put a longer screw in for the trigger but it still sux, definitely not a deal breaker tho. like I said, I'd buy it again!

By Jason W.SDecember 8, 2022 Verified Purchase

Not mounting a scope, as the prey I am after is quick and elusive, no time to zero in on but with open sights Game On

Really nice airifle,powerful and quiet. UPS dropped it off yesterday afternoon. Unboxed it and after a few clicks( although no click) in elevation and windage. 5 pellets later dead on out to 40yds. Trigger finger is itching to use H&N Crow magnum 18.21 gr. on some skunks and roof rats as I live on a 12 acre horse ranch. Likes Crosman Premier H.P. pellets, most accurate. I'm going to adjust as necessary for the weight of the cm's.

Picatinnany rail. 10 shot magazine. Sights need trueglo or luminescent paint.

By PaulSeptember 16, 2022

Perfect first break barrel for an adult. Very forgiving while also powerful & accurate. Cocking arm may require ice after long plinking or target sessions. Its fun to shoot & hard to put down.

This is my 1st break barrel. I have had it for a little more than 8 months. I have loved this .22 from the moment I opened the box. Its not too picky about pellets or really hold sensitive. The rifle is fairly accurate no matter what I do. However when I feed it crosman HP 13.4 or H&N 18.5 hunter extreams, & hold her just right. I can get sub MOA 5 round groups @ 25yds consistently. Im confident if had a longer yard it wouldn't take long to do the same @ 35yd or even 50. It didnt come with a scope & it broke 3 I put on it. I have a Hammers 4-12x40mm A/O on it for 3 months/600+ rounds I have to rezero occasionally but otherwise it has been a great combo.

The photo is with Rifle Premium Round Pellets at twenty five yards. This gun loves them and The H&N Baracuda pellets.

Great gun!


By John August 11, 2022

I truely am impressed with the .22 diamondback it has great power , is very quite, great for shooting , my neighbors cant hear it , we have invading raccoons every spring summer , its no problem taking them out with the diamondback at 25 yards no scope 1.5 inch groups sometimes 2 inch but thats on me. Its a year old and i put 2500 pellets thru it , avgs. 906 F.P.S. with crossman domed 13.7 grain pellets thats 24.98 F.P.E and avg.888 F.P.S.with 14.3 hollowpoint domed crossman pellets for raccoon shooting thats just over 25 F.P.E. this is one great of a break barrel air rifle thanks crosman

POWER ,ACCURACY, how it feels in hand, many pellets shoot great its not picky it takes out even large raccoons max ever 2 rounds

what fps does it fire a 14.3 grain lead pellet , i have no chronograph

asked darryl from USA

What are the best pellets for this air rifle? Will it do good with Crosman Premier 14.3 gr?

asked Kevin from USA

New to air rifles ?

asked Roger from USA

Is it ready for 1100 fps with 1 pump?

asked David from USA

Used JSB Exact Jumbo RS at 13.43gr but can't seem to zero in for more than a day. Changed scope to a UTG, same problem. Anybody managed consistency out of this toy gun and if so, with what ammo? I've got the .22 variant.

asked Minion from USA

First check the stock bolts if they are tight, next try JSB 18.13gr , or heavier pellets. Usually powerfull break barrels do well with heavier pellets, those 13.43gr are in the light spectrum for a powerfull break barrel. Try Air Arms Diabolo 16gr and 18gr and H&N 18gr and 21gr. Hope this helps please update your review how it went? I might buy it, I really like the break barrel rifles. They are not easy but man you really get to shoot any other rifle better.

Adrian from USA

Hello, I am waiting on my purchase to arrive. I was wondering if a bipod could be mounted to this air rifle? And with your testing of this gun, which .22 cal pellet was rated the best shooting out of this rifle?

asked daniel from USA

can use pellets 177 caliber on my rifle 22 caliber?

asked jorge from USA

No, this is a .22 calibur only. The .177 pellets are to small.

Kevin from USA

Received the rifle and seems solid. Scope mounts not included?

asked James from USA

How does this gun perform at 50 yards and even up to 100 yards (with decent accuracy)? Looking for a fun, affordable long range shooter in break barrel.

asked Seth from USA

This air gun does 1/2 pattern at fifty yards with Crosman Premier Hollow Point 14.3 pellets. I hope this helps!

Kevin from USA

what size pellet to kill a huge cane toad?

asked marasha from USA

Does rifle require purchase and installation of air cylinder regularly ... didn't see where to buy that. Do you also have one with multi-shot ability 22 cal also

asked Bruce from USA

This is a nitro piston air rifel means there is a gas ram that pushes the air out and it is a single shot

Gary from USA

Can the open sights be replaced with a higher quality set, or at least the rear sights ? I have heard the sight are made of plastic !

asked Scrambler82 from USA

Mark from USA - Is the rear sight on this rifle built to a standard mounting pattern ?

Scrambler82 from USA

You probably can remove the rear sight. The front sight can not be removed.

Mark from USA

What grain pellet should be used to achieve around 900 FPS?

asked Sean from USA

14 grain 850 fps

Gary from USA

14-18 grains

Mark from USA

Sound level equivalent?

asked Johnny from USA

This is a very quiet air rifle. Beyond 30 ft or so you will hear almost nothing.

Mark from USA

What type of sling do you put on the gun.

asked Hector from USA

I bought a Tactical Hero 2 point rifle sling and it works great. You will need to remove one clip to install on back of air rifle.

Kevin from USA

I would see if the benjamin brake barrel premium fits it worked great on my air rifel

Gary from USA

how can I put a bipod on this rifle?

asked pancho

asked Tom
