Things I liked: The .22 RWS34 is GREAT. I purchased the RWS34 based on superb recommendation from Pyramid Air's Richard & Micheal. I needed to replace a Benji Trail NP which I could not get to group properly. Three EXCELLENT benefits... 1. As described by one reviewer... it sounds like a staple gun, ie. it is NOT loud. My wife said it does not even sound like a gun! This is important since some of my neighbors would be real upset if they heard a gun in the backyard. 2. The RWS34 has positive scope mount detents to insure no scope slippage. 3. The trigger is EXCELLENT. Unlike two other air rifles I purchased... there is no need to purchase and install an aftermarket trigger for the RWS34.
Things I would have changed: Perhaps I am doing something wrong... But, when I cock the gun with the break barrel, the area of my trigger hand between my index finger and thumb will push in the safety. This defeats the EXCELLENT design of the RWS34 which automatically activates the safety when the gun is cocked. Perhaps the stock could be cast to have a small bump or channel surrounding the safety to prevent the trigger hand from inadvertently pushing the safety in ?? However, not a big deal now that I know to exercise caution.
What others should know: Another HUGE Benefit: The RWS34 is easily "Un-Cocked". Technique: Carefully move break barrel its full travel and then release the barrel slightly from the end of its swing, now push in the safety, then squeeze trigger. Carefully swing the break barrel to the normal firing position. This is important for me since I often encounter one of the other neighbors with children and dogs... this allows me to "safe up" the gun when appropriate yet leave a pellet in the breach without having to fire the gun. CAUTION: DO NOT SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER WITH THE BREAK BARREL OUT OF THE FIRING POSITION UNLESS YOU HAVE A FIRM GRASP ON THE BARREL. Safety rules I have read say NEVER take your hand off the break barrel while it is out of the firing position... keep a firm grasp to avoid injury if the sear somehow trips or trigger "bear trap" device fails to to prevent the trigger from being pulled.
Things I liked: The Leapers 5th Gen 3-12x40 scope is GREAT. I purchased this scope to replace two defective scopes which came as "combo" packages... ie. air rifle came from manufacturer with low quality scope.
Things I would have changed: I would not change anything on this Leapers Scope.
What others should know: Do NOT purchase a rifle which comes with a scope "bundled" with the rifle. Select the air rifle you want and then consider this Leapers scope or talk the excellent Pyramid Air chat reps like Richard or Micheal to get a quality scope suitable to your requirements.
Things I liked: Everything was GREAT.
Things I would have changed: Since I am new to air rifles... more information for installation would have been nice... Perhaps Pyramid Air can include a small info sheet. If they did it would be Great since everything else I have experienced from Pyramid Air has been Great.
What others should know: No comment.
Things I liked: The Pellet Pen is great... solved my problem of fumbling with pellets in my pocket.
Things I would have changed: Perhaps something in the instructions regarding the rubber ring at the end which goes against the breach. What is the purpose of this rubber ? Should it be positioned at the end of the "Pellet Pen" so the rubber ring contacts the breach.
What others should know: Its plastic so be prepared not to put it in your back pocket where it could be broken. If you find its a pain to mess with a bunch of pellets in your pocket... you will like the Pellet Pen. Makes it easy to grab the air rifle and pellet pen and get on scene when a squirrel is seen making is way into your attic.
