Things I liked:I like the feel and accuracy of the TF89. I am 6'6" tall and the balance and weight is a natural fit. The trigger is gritty on a long pull but goes off just right at the end of the pull.
Things I would have changed:The trigger needs to be smoothed out but works fine as is.. I don't like the small breech seal oring but the current one works. There are changes that would enhance the TF89 but at a higher cost for the rifle.
What others should know:The stock screws need to be tight for consistency. Watch them. Be patient and allow a break in period. I experimented with different size breach seal orings during the break in period.

Things I liked:Accuracy was excellent right out of the box over a wide range of pellet types and brands. After over 500 shots, accuracy has not changed. Barrel droop was not excessive but still needed a droop mount. The firing cycle has smoothed out and no more rough cocking and honking. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Things I would have changed:I don't like drooping air rifle barrels but appears to be a way of life with the RWS brand. Seems like this issue could be solved with some creative engineering. The RWS 34P out of the box had a honking piston seal and a grinding main spring. The lube from the factory appears to very thin. A coating of moly on the piston and spring solved the grinding and honking. The 34P was very accurate even while grinding and honking.
What others should know:Buy a droop mount when you order the air rifle. Barrel droop is the rule not the exception. I now have two RWS 34P air rifles and both have been grinders and honkers. Both air rifles have smoothed out with use and moly. Don't think moly is absolutely necessary but appears to be a quick fix. Shoot the 34P and the noise will eventually stop when broken in.
