Things I liked:German engineering, accuracy, power (.22), and Diana 34p reputation. Things I would have changed:For the striker combo, I would charge more but put a better scope and rings on it. Why put a scope that doesn't meet the quality of the rifle? Air Venturi Tech force seems like it will probably do the job...but time will tell. Picture shows 4 hex screws per ring but ended up with 2 hex screws per ring. It was my understanding from sales that I was getting 4 hex screw as pictured. Blogs have mentioned to avoid these mounts since they won't hold the scope well. RWS could make the safety switch easier to grab when a scope is mounted on the gun. Have tabs on the side and not just on top. What others should know:Very nice gun. The .22 goes right through yellow pine, pressure treated wood at 50 yards. Very accurate. It's great knowing you can get parts for this gun. I have a stoeger and a ruger springer and they don't even come close to quality, but, for the money they still are a lot of fun. This would be hard for younger (supervised) kids to cock the gun.
Things I liked:Great for kids to load and cock. Pretty accurate at 25-30 yards with fiber optic sights. Very light to handle and the quality, for what you pay, is pretty good. Things I would have changed:Normally, you get what you pay for but this little gun beats the pump guns anyday in quality and accuracy. Very easy to use and kids will enjoy this rifle for years to come. What others should know:I like how the front sights plastic housing goes down the barrel more than others. Makes it easier to cock and you don't get your dirty, oily, etc. hands all over the barrel. This design may end up making the sights sturdier (?) than other manufacturers. The safety button is enlarged compared to other guns which makes it user friendly IMHO.
