The upgraded Diana Stormrider Gen2 featuring black synthetic stock is a light and highly accurate rifle with solid construction for a price that won't break the bank. Despite the fact that this is a budget minded air rifle, you still get max power of 26 fpe and max velocity of 950 fps in .22. The 100cc air tube fills to 2900 psi, so it's fairly easy to fill with a hand pump. You get about 30-40 shots per fill, which means more shooting and less pumping or filling. This newer version also has an improved, longer integrated moderator, giving you a quieter shot that sits at the lower end of the loudness scale.

The Stormrider has a light 2 stage trigger that's adjustable for both pull weight and sear engagement. This version adds a black synthetic stock that gives you a firm hold even when wet. For additional control and comfort, it has a checkered grip and forearm and a rubber buttpad. This air rifle has an integrated pressure gauge on the end of the air tube, and the side bolt with O-rings for grip has been enlarged from the previous model so it's easier to use. It includes a rear sight that's adjustable for windage and elevation and a fixed front blade sight, and the rear sight can be removed so you can add a scope on the 11mm dovetail mount.

Whether you're shooting for fun, shooting at targets, or hunting small game, the Diana Stormrider Gen2 in black synthetic stock has you covered. It's easy on the wallet, a great entry point into the PCP market, or an enjoyable extra gun, so get yours today at Airgun Depot.

Use H&N 10gr slugs in .177 if they can't handle things then use a .22lr.

Pros
Great little gun I am very impressed!

Cons
Permanent air valve on it somewhere. I don't like to have to insert that air probe or whatever it's called to fill it.

This is a very affordable and nice well made air rifle.

Pros
Shoots well very well.

Cons
Since is my first PCP rifle I cant said anything negative at this time. I just added a barrel band to reinforce barrel

By CecilSeptember 2, 2023 Verified Purchase

I think anyone would be satisfied with this rifle as it is.

Pros
The weight of the storm rider is a real positive as most air rifles are much heavier and this is a definite plus for older shooters that might have control issues and would also be a positive for younger shooters. This rifle is a pleasure go shoot and I almost shot a whole ten of pellets the day it arrived.

Cons
I would love to have this rifle with a thumb hole stock or a skeletonized stock as I have severe joint issues a d can't properly hold a rifle for accurate shooting. I usually have to get my sander to the stock and put a pistol grip behind the trigger guard so I can hold it.

My husband bought himself an air rifle for pest control and target shooting. I thought it looked like it could be fun and asked him to get me one. My husband purchased this, Diana Stormrider, Gen 2, for me. He put an Athlon scope on it. I have used pistols for target shooting before, but never a rifle. My husband had to help me correct my grip and sighting. I am right hand and left eye dominant. I was able to hit the dot with my first three shots at 28 yards. The rifle was comfortable to hold. The trigger pulled smoothly and easily. And, the safety was easy to locate and use.

Pros
Light, nice trigger pull

Cons
Nothing at this time

Tried mounting a scope but the magazine won't fit under the tube. Open sights is a tack driver at 7-10 yards

Pros
Light weight, accurate, quiet

Cons
Longer rail for scope, second barrel band, extra magazine

By BlakeUSAFebruary 27, 2023 Verified Purchase

I love my Stormrider for light peering and plinking. I installed an AR kit from Buck Rail as well as a second barrel band.

Pros
Lightweight, easy to pump, accurate with the addition of a second barrel band if shooting off anything other than a bench.

Cons
Needs another barrel band, I had to switch the trigger adjustment screws to eliminate creep in the second stage.

Pros
Great gun for the price, Very accurate and packs a punch.

Cons
No extra magazines! Be happy with the one you get as you ain't getting anymore in the foreseeable future since they are out of stock throughout the Web!

pumping the little rascal to 200 bar is kinda tough. i almost had to jump on the pump plunger. i use a g9 from air venturi so there might be a better pump out there. i cleaned the barrel well and started shooting crossman 14.3 hps and never looked back. my gun is GERMAN made and not made in china. i don't know how well the chinese made stormriders will shoot but if made to german specs they should be just fine.

Pros
liteweight very accurate no trouble loading. i instlled a regulator set to 125 bar and a g9 handpump to pump it up. ONE ragged hole at 25 yds 5 shot groups. after 3 groups the pressure starts falling off and it's time to recharge. i'm new to pcps, but this little critter is an eyeopener. it puts my springers in the back seat. the magazine works flawlessly and loading singly took a little getting used to. the trigger isn't a match trigger but works just fine.

Cons
nada

You cannot find a better economy PCP rifle for plinking. Correctly set up, it is savagely accurate. It will toss 3 or 4 magazines at decent pressure before needing recharge, which only takes a few seconds.

Pros
It's surprising what a good selection we have in air rifles today. I started punching pellets back in the1970s when a family friend gave my brother and I a well-used Crosman multi-pump in .22. We shot that rifle practically every day, and then graduated to rimfire rifles and lather center fire cartridges. The Diana Stormrider harkens back to the classic plinking rifles. It is simple, and and has a small frame, so both adults and teenagers can shoot it. For the price, it is very solid and well-built. This may not make you Rambo, but it will improve your marksmanship. This is an excellent PCP pared down to the basics. Great trigger. As accurate as you are -- there is an excellent video of this rifle grouping at 100 yards. It's a high-quality gun.

Cons
It needs a second barrel band. The stock has a very aggresive texture. I think the stock could be refined with a more delicate treatment. As a regulated rifle, this is very choice, but not everyone will want to spend and additional $100 to $130 to make that move.

Does the 2nd generation have an improved bolt action? Had a first gen and loved it except the bolt was hard for my kids to use.

asked Jonathan from USA

What's the name of the adapter to hook up this air rifle to my air compressor? Is the gold item in the picture with the magazine an adapter? Thank you.

asked Lonnie from Laos

Yes, this PCP uses a brass fill probe.

Adam from USA

What scope works with this rifle

asked Daniel from USA

This is a PCP, any scope you like that can parallax down to your closest shooting distance.

Adam from USA

Does it come with a silencer/suppressor/moderator? Such feature is not legal in New Jersey. If it's available without that feature, I'll buy it.

asked EPQ from USA

How much effort, or pumps, is it to pump up to pressure ?

asked Ken from USA

i quit shooting mine at 140 bar which gives me 14 accurate shots down from 200 bar. from there it takes about 50 strokes on my air venturi g9 pump. you can't be a whimp to pump up my setup. it's kinda on the tough side. letting pressure go below 140 bar means more pumping. i have a regulator in my stormrider g2 and get 2 magazine loads of 22 cal. with excellent accuracy

Dennis from USA

does it come with hand pump adapter

asked Tyler from USA

OK, am considering this model for light-duty pest control. What are your average group sizes? Please provide group measure in inches or mm, range to target, the pellet used, number of pellets per group, and PSI level when the group was produced. Corresponding chronograph measure at the time of the group would be nice if you have them. Thank you for your data and information.

asked Eric A. from USA

Firstly let me say that my experience with Air Gun Depot has been nothing short of excellence. I won't go into details of their support, but I must give Cudo's to Mat and Bob for customer service! To your question...I have a .22 Gen 2. At 25 or 40yds I would challenge any other rifle to have better accuracy. I am not a pro but still a pretty good shot. Benched this rifle will give me 1/2 '' groups with more than half the mag (7 shots) hitting pellet on pellet. Do get a refill mechanism as the pump is more arduous that most will tell you. If you have a quick way to refill it makes the experience much better.

Clyde from USA

Can you put a scope on the rifle

asked Theo from South Africa

Yes. The Stormrider has a 11mm dovetail optic rail.

Mark from USA

What kind of fill connection does this have

asked Kyle from USA

DIA-1900101. The fill probe is in the item pics. The synthetic model uses the same fill probe.

Mark from USA

how does this gun compare to the air venturi avenger

asked Bill from USA

The Avenger will be a more robust gun. Higher shot count. The Stormrider is lighter and shorter.

Mark from USA

How do u fill it will i need to buy somthing to fill it or how dose that all work

asked David from Canada

To fill the Stormrider you need a 300-4500 psi hand pump,air tank or compressor.

Mark from USA

hand pump recommendstion?

asked Donald from USA

Any of the handpumps will work. The Hill and Air Venturi are the best.
