Things I liked:I like the POWER of the 34. I also like the weight and the adjustable rear sight. Out of the box, my groups were erratic at best, but after about 50 rds the 34 started to settle down and my groups got much better!! I feel once the 34 has passed its break in period it will provide loads of fun. Things I would have changed:I don't like the feel of the plastic trigger, I wish RWS offered an after market metal replacement. The 34 does have felt recoil, and a butt pad would have been nice. What others should know:To enhance the accuracy of my 34, the front sight blade is angled back toward the shooter from factory. I tilted the front sight blade more on a vertical plane which gave me a better site presence. I also painted the blade white for a better contrast. I also added a Black Hawk AMMO CHEEK PAD which gave me a no slip surface to rest my cheek on during an afternoon of shooting in the humidity of So Fla. In conjunction with a Butler Creek Deluxe "SLIP ON" Recoil Pad (Medium #50326), I can honestly say with those mods my groups are much better. Less felt recoil, better site presentation and a solid cheek placement only enhances accuracy.
Things I liked:I like the accuracy, consistency in shape, and energy at impact of the Crossman Primer Pellets. I also like the price. I initially purchased the BENJAMIN SHERIDAN .22 Diablos and was very pleased with their performance. I was reading a review in reference to the BENJAMIN SHERIDAN .22 Diabolo when one of the reviewers made a reference to the CROSSMAN Premier Doomed Pellets being basically identical to BENJAMIN SHERIDAN. I took a look, made the purchase, and have been satisfied with the results. Things I would have changed:I would like to see them in a better container. The box is just not a good container...... What others should know:You cannot beat the all around value of these pellets. They are accurate with consistent groups, and gives good energy at the point of impact. The bottom line is they shoot just as well as the more expensive pellets on the market.
