Things I liked:This is a quality air gun with a superbly crafted synthetic stock (I purchased the .177 cal). Very nice two stage trigger that is well pronunced between the first and second stage. With a crisp pull in the second stage. Tru Glo signts are good for target acquisition and plinking and the adjustments are well defined clicks for both windage and elevation. This air gun appears to perform best with heavy pellets. I've had very good results with the Beeman Crow-Magnum and RWS Superdome. Things I would have changed:This gun needs sling swivels if you use it for hunting. This aiir gun will be a heavy load to lug around in the field without a sling. Further, it would help in both the Off Hand and Sitting Posiion because the gun is so heavy at the muzzle, and the balance point for me is just in front of the trigger guard. What others should know:I 've had this air gun for over two months before submitting these comments. This is my first adult air rifle, and I selected the 34P over the CFX upon the recommendation of the PyramydAir Customer Rep. I would recommend a .22 Cal for an air gun that weighs this much with or without a scope. Before mounting the scope I shot approximately 300 pullets through it to get a feel for its shooting characteristics, and hopefully also obtain some mechanical break-in. I learned to obtain consistent shot groups requires a longer follow through and much more relaxed hold with the left hand foreward position. This air rifle is very difficult to shoot in both the Off Hand (Standing) and Sitting Position because of the barrel drop. A rifle sling would greatly improve the balance and steady the hold position. I noticed that other evaluators have obtained very small shot groups; however, the best I have obtained with out of the box pellets (without sorting or weighing the pellets) is about 3/8" CTC at 20 yards with a 5th Gen Leapers 3-9 Scope . And about 1/2" with the open sights. Both shot groups were from a bench rest.
Things I liked:Very good fit in the breech of my Diana 34P. Consistent dime size shot groups from a bench rest from 10 to 25 yards with a less than 5 mph crosswind. I test with five shot groups. Things I would have changed:As addressed by other reviewers I would recommend that the manufacturer use a screw type lid. Germans probably have a contract with the Chinese to provide the storage tins. What others should know:I cannot attest to the accuracy of these pellets beyond 25 yards. I'll provide another review after I've tested the pellet from 25 to 50 yards.
Things I liked:Nothing when tested in a Diana 34P. At the time of the test I had put approximately 1000 pellets through the Diana 34P. The test was conducted from a Bench Rest at 25 Yards with five, five-shot pellet groups. Groups were scattered, and very inconsistent. I could never get the groups smaller than a Silver Dollar at that distance.
What others should know:I'll test this same pellet in a Crossman 760 Pump at 10 yards to determine if I get the same results.
