The Diana Bandit is destined for greatness as a backyard friendly PCP plinker. Based on the action of their hit PCP--the Diana Stormrider, the Bandit takes a similar approach to repeating shot action with indexing magazines cycled by smooth operating bolt-action.  With 7 shots in .22 and 9 in .177, shooters are sure to enjoy more trigger time with less reloading than most air pistols.  Fueled by a 50cc on-board tank, the Bandit makes for a low overhead entry into PCP guns and can easily be filled with a handpump. The Bandit offers shooters flexibility in their shooting sessions starting with the sights. Each pistol features traditional open sights with fully-adjustable rear sights for shooting straight out of the box. However, if you prefer to mount some optics, remove the rear sight to expose the 11mm dovetail rail.  Likewise, the Diana Improved Trigger (DIT) allows the shooter to customize the take-up on the 2-stage trigger for a personalized trigger pull. When you start shooting, you can expect quiet shots from a long fixed-moderator.

This pistol is my first jump into PCP airguns and I don't think I could have made a better choice than this Diana Bandit! I took the advice of a review I saw on youtube and installed a barrel band connecting the air tank to the barrel just aft of the front sight and this installation went flawlessly. Now, the pistol seems much more robust and secure! The results in the associated video showed the grouping much tighter. The three barrel retaining screws were easily removed and a matching divot in the barrel under the center screw indexed the barrel perfectly. I also wondered just how many pumps from a handpump it would take to get the 50cc reservoir up to the red band and I was seriously pleased to find the Air Venturi G9 handpump up to the task with hardly any effort on my part! A few full stroke pumps with this G9 pump and I was at the redline! I'm actually pretty lucky I didn't overcharge as I expected several minutes of pumping!

The sheer quality of construction!

I've yet to put the gun to a physical test, but my only con so far would be the grip may not fit my large hand as well as I would like. Should I choose to customize the wood for my hand, this grip comes with PLENTY of wood. I just don't want to change a great finish unnecessarily so I'll get to shooting it first.

A must if you like collecting these type of guns!

It’s amazing right out of box, gun is light and quiet I waited a long time to finally get this and so worth the wait thanks A.G.D. For getting these .


By TERRYUSAJune 5, 2021 Verified Purchase

Here it is in a nutshell, just buy the darn thing and if you can afford it buy one of each caliber. less than 400 you get two nice handguns that are backyard friendly and fun to shoot, you can fill with a hand pump but there are a bunch of used tanks out there at the scuba shops and they may not be 4500 psi you don't need it and one fill will last you a long time.

Light weight, sights are decent, like the left hand bolt , glad they include a single shot adapter. It's not really pellet picky but mine really loves the RWS R10's, the JBS 18.13's and the H&N 18's, the kicker is I tried a lot of different brands in it and thought I would give it a test from down under and shoot H&N slugs(single loaded) and they didn't do bad at all and from the sound they made hitting they packed a wallop. The Bandit is a good pcp for someone that doesn't want to spend a lot of money yet get a good shooting gun. So far I have put more than 1000 pellets through it and the little thing is addictive, 1000 pellets and I only got it Friday so I have been slinging the lead in the garage/basement. Put yourself a small red dot on it and you have yourself a shooter.

Grips are large but then you can taylor fit them to your hand, it's easier to take off than it is to add, but I dont have much trouble with them but I might do a little sanding on them. I havent got into adjusting the trigger but my weight of pull is averaging 1 pound 9 ounces, I would like to get it a bit under a pound if possible. Some say the fill port needs a cover and that would be nice to keep the dirt out of it when you are outdoors but we must remember that this isn't something that you would be beating the boonies with because of the size. All in all the cons are petty to me but we all have our likes and dislikes. Oh there is one thing that they should do and that is to include a barrel band on it, first thing I am going to buy for it.

Easy to take apart and work on. Easy to most.

Light, powerful, Huma has a regulator for it and I think that making it a little more powerful will be easy.

I am all thumbs and have wide hands. The grip is to fat and needs ground down.

By BOWHUNTER28December 13, 2019 Verified Purchase

Fine gun. Well worth the $$$$$. Accurate as all get out. Great deal!

Feels good in your hand

Handle a smite large.

At this price, I didn't expect too much in the area of quality or function. I dived in and purchased one in .22, and one in .177. Both came in padded cases, with additional items, needed to use these guns. To say that I was impressed would be a gross understatement. Neither gun had any blemishes are machine marks of any kind on them. Better yet, both guns functioned perfectly and are very accurate. Both are easily powerful enough to take small game at moderate ranges. I've made a lot of purchases in my life, and of these two guns, I believe I made tremendous buys. I am new to this sport, but will hopefully have many years of enjoyment shooting these guns. In my opinion, money spent on these guns would be a great value!

overall weight accuracy noise level carrying cases included

Grip: the grips are huge blocks of wood, and unless you have XL hands like mine, you may have trouble making appropriate trigger contact. Not a big issue, but I think the fill ports should be covered. As such, I made my own out of some rubber rings.

By PaulDecember 27, 2018

The first one I received had a loose barrel, and barrel was dropping down and touching the air cylinder. I returned it for exchange. The second replacement pistol also had a slightly loose barrel as well. After tightening the 3 Allen screws on the breach, the barrel was tight and didn't have any droop. Diana needs to have better assembly quality control. The second pistol shoots fine. One last note. Make sure to clean the barrel before you fire it. Very dirty!!

By BernardUSANovember 26, 2018

I bought the air pistol a few months back and finally got to test it properly. I had a problem with the open sites they ran out of adjustment which made the gun shoot low. This was not a problem for me due to my age I mounted a Center point 2X20 pistol scope with high rings so the magazine would not have an issue loading. The medium rings my work I didn't try them. This .22 cal pistol is a tack driver using JSB 14.35 Exact Jumbo Express. Right out of the box with out cleaning the barrel it put pellet on pellet. The trigger is a little stiff but as I have broken it in it's become smother. I haven't adjusted it yet but the trigger pull is about medium in weight. The moderator for the .22 works great which brings the sound level down to very back yard friendly. At 25 yards it has more then enough power to take out small game and birds. The mussel energy is at 12 foot pounds using the 14.35 pellets. I am getting about 40 shots per fill. Great price for what you are getting.

Tack Driver, Very quiet, 40 shots per fill.

A plug cover, or dust cover would be nice for the prob hole.

By JoeOctober 18, 2018

I feel Like I stole this Airgun for the price. It is a tack driving, POWERFUL Airgun in a target pistol configuration. The pistol grip is ergonomically based in, waiting for its owner to customize the wood for a perfect fit. I get 30 shots per fill. That's 4+ 7 shot magazines per fill! Who can't hunt with 30 shots? I am designing and building a shoulder stock for it.

Come on Crosman/Benjamin. This airgun platform from China needs to be reckoned with.

By MikeUSAOctober 9, 2018

This Gun is accurate, lightweight, and is capable of multiple shots. I have .22 cal. and only tried it at 25 yards, so will have to update later after trying it out at longer distances. Being a mostly scoped shooter and not really liking open sights, i would have to say that most Hand guns are better off left with open sights, since they have limited range capabilities. But there are exceptions. I do not see where you can add scope mounts on this Gun, but it is just fine the way that it is.

Light weight, Quiet, Multiple shots, Accurate, and affordable.

Mark from USA

Where can I get a right side bolt receiver?

asked Kevin from USA

To get a right hand breech block e-mail : [email protected]

Mark from USA

Is this a left or right handed gun? What pump s required?

asked Michael from USA

The grip is ambidexterous. The bolt handle on the left side of the receiver. You can get a receiver that has the bolt on the right side. Any hand pump will fill the Bandit.

Mark from USA

I see that the bandit in .22 gets 630 fps. so said the ads. I have seen other bandit owners saying faster fps. speeds. WHAT WOULD BE A FAIR speed for a charged .22 Bandit and with what pellet/s? I'd be really happy with near 700 fps. Thanx all. Love the extreme power of my shin sung Career rifles but will never happen in a pistol.
