Things I liked:Lightweight for power.Quality of blueing&woodwork.Also no other trigger on the market to compare to the Record. Things I would have changed:HW in Germany(makes R series Beemans)has started to cut some corners in metal finish on barrel breechblock.Not bad,just not like they were.A product of the competitive world we live in. What others should know:Probally the best breakbarrel spring airgun available today.I had some issues with the inside of air chamber being rough&some pits.Pyramyd is the best I`ve seen(been shooting these Beemans for 30 years) at solving customer issues&will make it right,if possible,exchange,or refund,they`re great!
Things I liked:I bought 6 tins of these,because the tin that came with my Marauder were VG.Sorry to say all 6 tins were useless,at least 3 different head sizes in each tin.Will cause vertical string over 1-2" @ 30 yds. Things I would have changed:Just 7 yrs ago,Crosman made the 22 cal Dome&Point pellets.They ran about 5.50 head size,and were very consistent,the Premiers ran about 5.52 head size,and consistemt.These Benjamin,and the Crosman branded Hollow poing Premiers in the tin are hit&miss,of late usually miss.It`s a shame QC has suffered so much. What others should know:Get H&N FTT,they`re still pretty good.
Things I liked:Still the best gun for the money out there.I have a house full of airguns,and 6 other 34`s.
I`m getting 5 shot groups under .5" @ 30 yds,with cphp,cpl,and RWS Superdome pellets.
The R-9 is a super airgun,but if you look at the prices since 7 yrs ago,the R-9 had doubled in price,the old Diana 34 is still about the same! Things I would have changed:I would like to see Diana go to the 16" barrel,like the R-9,the 19" barrel is a little long.
The older Panther stock looked more plain,but I think was a better stock,it had rubber buttpad(plastic on this one),and it was better at absorbing vibration,I think.A few sharp edges on the cocking arm cut out to smooth off.
These are minor complaints. What others should know:Don`t waste your money on the Gamo line,or even the Gamo clones under the Crosman brands.Everything better on these,barrels,metal finish,triggers,heirloom quality.This gun will be passed on to your relatives when you get too old to cock it!
Things I liked:i love the entire line of these scopes,this and the 4x16.Good secure tuttent knobs,recoil won`t knock them off a click with each shot.Good optics. Things I would have changed:The scope they sent me the crosshair wire was too heavy for an airgun,I think.
Still very useable,and will work on a 20 Ga shotgun shell empty hull @ 40 yds. What others should know:No
