Rain down a shower of lead with the Diana Stormrider!

Diana has been a leader in the airgun industry since 1892 and the Stormrider marks the company’s first foray into budget-friendly PCPs—and they’ve really created a real contender! With repeating shots, great features, and a no-frills design, the Stormrider is sure to create a new generation of PCP shooters.

The first thing airgunners will note is the sturdy and sleek design of the Monte Carlo beech stock. With a unique checkering on the grip and forend, shooters should have no trouble finding a secure hold. The stock is only 1.5 inches thick, so airgunners young and old can easily maneuver its lightweight 5lb body.

Airgunners get into PCPs for their ability to fire shot after shot and the Stormrider does not disappoint. Simply load up the magazine and slide it into the breech where it clips 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. To sight up your shots, use the included open sights or mount your own optics to the 11mm dovetail rail.

If the price point has held you back from diving into PCP shooting sports, the Stormrider is sure to please with its price point and reward the shooter with features that hold up to Diana’s standard.

I added a Hammers 6x32AO compact scope and still very light air rifle. If you install 2 small dovetail to weaver adapters on the 11mm rail when you install the scope you will not have to remove the rear sights. We will update this review later on .

Pros
Super Light weight. Nice lookin pcp rifle. Very small but easy to aim with it. Accurate for first 14 shots with JSB 15.89gr pellets at 25yrds. Backyard friendly. Budget friendly. Magazine worked ok. Single tray worked ok but loading pellets is difficult with big hands . Bolt mechanism is not smooth. Trigger is ok.

Cons
100cc tank is too small for use with heavy pellets. Shot 21 shots zeroing the scope. Noticed that the last 7 shots dropped down from dead center to one dot low for 3 pellets and the other 4 pellets two dots down. Zeroing distance was 25yrds using JSB 15.89gr pellets. Noticed also the cocking and loading of pellets was not smooth. Had to use some force to pull back and to push in the pellets.

I dont own this gun but I had to leave a comment based off the review above. This gun would be so Insanely easy to pump. I have a marauder and a bulldog and can pump my marauders 215cc cylinder from 1,000psi to 3,000psi In 10-15 minutes, Or 20 minutes during warmer months due to a 5-10 minute break to let pump cool down. My bulldogs 340cc cylinder takes about 30 minutes from 1,000psi to 3,000psi with a 5-10 minute break to cool pump down. This diana (actually made by spa) has a 100cc cylinder. So obviously this guy On the other review had no clue what they were doing.

Pros
This Is a great package at a great price. This Is a really great gun. I dont own It but My buddy does and Its really accurate and after tinkering with It, tuning It down, hes got alot more shots and a better trigger. He actually removed the moderator by cutting it off, then re-crowned the barrel, finished it up nice, then polished trigger and sear.

Cons
I hooked my 120psi bike pump to the gun and Its not pumping It up! Lol jk. Haha ha. I had to leave a comment. I cant stand when people leave bad reviews, bad and Incorrect Information, due to there own stupidity. Airgun depot Is a awesome merchant and this Is a great package at a great price and contrary to what this other reviewer states, this gun Is soo easy to fill with a proper pcp pump! (Hooked up correctly)

i was suprised by the feel and ease of use. seemes to like every type of pellet I put into it, from an old tin of Daisy wad cutters to Predator Polymags. at 40 yards you can cover a 5 shot group with a dime.

Pros
light weight, size

Cons
could use a front barrel band

I have the 22, nice rifle, this is my first PCP and very pleased with it. My first con is the barrel, didn't like it hanging in the air when I first saw a picture of it, when I ordered it I also ordered as Barrel ring, fit perfect over the air tank and barrel, it's tight and the barrel won't move at all now.The 2nd con is what some people have mentioned, the magazine, I had to cut the pellet to get the magazine out. I was using wad cutter pellets, I don't recommend them for this rifle, in any caliber, I only use dome or pointed pellets now. Everything else about this rifle I have to say it's excellent. Accuracy is excellent right out of the box, bought it with the pump, the pump is a waste of time and money, I ended up getting the Nomad compressor,1st Generation, that was money well spent. For the price, I'm considering getting another one.

I bought this as an intro to PCP airguns and as a pest control rifle, and it serves well in both roles. Shooting JSB Ultrashoks, it's dropped every rat I've hit center-mass in one shot. The nine round magazine is great for quick follow-up shots, too. The trigger's nice, especially compared to my old nitro piston rifles. It's also a lot smaller and lighter, very maneuverable in small spaces. Gets good groups on paper. Quiet enough to shoot in my backyard(maybe not if you have nosy neighbors). Add a flashlight, and it's a great little rat gun. Some cons: No front barrel band. The barrel has a little bit of play in front. There is a barrel band available, but that involves removal of the front sight to install. I rigged my own out of some wood and paracord, which seems to have fixed the problem. The magazine. It's pretty tedious to load, and tends to jam with flat-point pellets. I sometimes have two or three pellets per magazine jam. Would be better if it was throated out for more reliable feeding. The bolt handle is kind of delicate. Along with the magazine jamming, I've bent mine a couple of times. Might see if I can find something more solid to replace it with. Mine doesn't seem to hold air for more than a couple of days. Don't know if this is normal. Overall, though, a great buy. I'm never going back to break-barrels. It's small, light, accurate, fun to shoot, and great for pest control. For all that, I can live with the few cons.

Pros
Small and light Accurate Hard-hitting Price Multi-shot Fun to shoot

Cons
No front barrel band Magazine jams with some pellets Delicate bolt handle Leaks air?

I am very happy with the Diana Stormrider. It has plenty of power and is easy to fill. It isn't terribly picky about pellets and I really like the nice wood stock. Most of my actual rifles don't have a stock this nice.

Pros
Fills to 300 BAR 2900PSI Nice wood stock Good sights Comes with a magazine, single shot tray and fill adapter Light and easy to handle

Cons
Could use a cover or plug for the fill opening

In love with this rifle...even with it being hard to load. Hard to load caused the arm on the bolt to snap off after about 180 rounds...sent it back. They were very helpful and understanding, (thank you Matt and Stacey). It was returned in no time at all; and all I wanted to do was see if it was hard to load...smooth as glass. These people stand behind their product and that makes me a happy camper.

Pros
accurate light weight powerful easy on the eyes fun to shoot

Cons
none
