DIANA Air Rifles Recalled Due to Possibility of Unexpected Discharge
UNITED STATES – According to an online news report posted at idahostatejournal.com, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of certain DIANA air rifles due to the possibility that the rifles can discharge unexpectedly. This can occur even when the safety is engaged, leading to risk of serious injury or death.*
The DIANA Stormrider Gen 2 air rifle is included in the recall, having an adjustable two-stage trigger. The rifles come in .177 and .22 caliber and are powered with compressed air. They were manufactured at the Shaoxing Snowpeak Air Gun Factory in China and imported by Air Venturi under the label DIANA Mayer & Grammelspacher.
The units retailed for about $220 and were sold at various gun retailers, including Air Gun Depot and Pyramid Air. They were also available for purchase online through these retailers and through Amazon. The recall information from the CPSC states that approximately 1,400 air rifles were sold. To date, the company had received one report of unexpected or premature discharge with a DIANA air rifle.
DIANA and Air Venturi will be contacting owners of the recalled air rifles to alert them to the recall. Consumers who have these air rifles should stop using them immediately and contact Air Venturi to arrange for repairs. Consumers with affected air rifles will be sent a Trigger Upgrade kit at no cost. The kit will come with instructions for installation that will include removal of the trigger guard and replacement with another trigger guard.
It is not clear if the manufacturer is offering any refunds or if the recall program only involves repairs. Consumers who have questions about the recall can contact Air Venturi at (888) 256-3253. Consumers can also learn more about the recall by going to airventuri.com and clicking on the page titled “Recall Notice.”
