Diana airguns have been around for decades. They offer some wonderful options for airgunners at all price ranges. Additionally, they offer CO2, Spring, and PCP airguns. If you are looking for a new airgun, then consider one from Diana. Here are our top picks.
Diana RWS 460 Magnum
Let’s start with the most powerful springer in Diana’s current arsenal. The Diana RWS 460 Magnum is a single-shot, fixed-barrel underlever airgun engineered and built in Germany. The craftsmanship is on par with other top-shelf European spring airguns. It comes with iron sights, with the rear sight being fully adjustable, and an 11mm dovetail for mounting optics, and the adjustable T06 trigger is one of the smoothest shooting triggers in airgunning. Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the entire package is rounded off with a beautiful wood stock.
Diana 54 Airking Pro
Another top-shelf Diana is the 54 Airking Pro. The 54 Airking Pro is a single-shot, spring-powered airgun featuring a fixed barrel with a side for lever cocking. Where nearly all spring airguns suffer from reverse recoil, the 54 Airking has a trick up its sleeve. It’s one of only a few spring airguns on the market to incorporate a fully recoilless design. The action is designed to move in the stock and eliminate the felt recoil. This ingenious system improves accuracy and delivers an exceptional shooting experience. Our favorite version of the 54 Airking includes the red laminate stock. It’s simply gorgeous.
New to the Diana lineup is the XR200. The XR200 is a side lever PCP with the appearance and performance of a traditional hunting rifle. This PCP-powered airgun features a thoughtful and flexible design. Available in .177, .22, .25, and 30 calibers, the XR2000 can fill the needs of most airgunners. The exceptional design, performance, and accuracy are top of its class. Key features of the XR200 include a Lothar Walther rifled barrel, reversible cocking lever, integrated regulator, adjustable power, adjustable cheekpiece, and the list just keeps going. Airgunners who prefer traditional looks, paired with modern features and performance are going to love the XR200.
Diana Stormrider Gen 2 Synthetic
Let’s shift gears from the more expensive models from Diana and take a look at their most affordable PCP. The Diana Stormrider Gen 2 Synthetic is a bolt-action PCP that’s available in .177 and .22 calibers. It features a lightweight design, delivering up to 950 FPS in .22 caliber. It has open sights, an integrated moderator, 2-stage adjustable trigger, and it operates from a max fill of 2900 PSI. The 100cc air cylinder is easily filled with an affordable hand pump, making the Stormrider an awesome option for first-time PCP buyers.
Diana Chaser Pellet Pistol / Rifle Kit
Our last Diana airgun is the CO2-Powered Diana Chaser Piston / Rifle Kit. As the name implies, the Diana Chaser Kit can be configured in multiple ways. It can be a standard pistol with open sights. A microcarbine with the included skeleton rifle stock. Lastly, it can be converted to a full rifle with a 17.7” barrel, which includes a moderator. The Chaser Kit is available in .177 and .22. The kit ships with a single shot tray, but shooters can also opt for a magazine as an add-on. The open sights work across all configurations, but for those looking for more accuracy, the Chaser also includes an 11mm dovetail for mounting optics. The Chaser Pellet Pistol / Rifle kit is a lightweight platform that’s ideal for someone who wants to get in some trigger time across multiple form factors without breaking the bank.
