If you are concerned about the safety of guns in your home, here’s a warning you should heed and a recall you should know about. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), some air rifles are being recalled because they can unexpectedly fire, even when the safety is engaged causing serious injury and/or death.
Today, CPSC announced that about 1,400 DIANA Stormrider Gen 2 Air Rifles are being recalled for the aforementioned reason.
Owners can get a free trigger upgrade repair kit and installation guide. The rifles were sold at Pyramyd Air, Air Gun Depot, and other stores across the country, as well as online at amazon.com, pyramydair.com, airgundepot.com and at gun shows from July of 2018 through June of 2019. They retailed for around $220.
Those who bought the rifles should call Air Venturi at 888-256-3253 go online to www.airventuri.com and click Recall Notice for more information. Consumers can click here for details about which air rifles have been recalled.
