Things I liked: Looks, Balance, Quality, Trigger, & It's built to last.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This is now my favorite .177 break barrel air rifle. Added a UTG 3X9X40 scope. Seeing groups from just outside of a dime to a quarter at 30 yards. I spend a lot of my shooting time with my Panther shooting egg size and shaped steel knockover targets out to 40 yards. Thinking about getting the .22 Panther 31 next.
Things I liked: This gun is exactly like my model 34s. I know there is supposed to be some difference somewhere, but I haven't found it yet, except that it's in .22 cal. instead of .177. It has high quality displayed in all respects. Heavy and built to last a life time. Now I own three of these RWS rifles, and am totally satisfied with them all.
Things I would have changed: I see no need for the thumb safety, or any manual safety of any kind. That would be gone if I could change it.
What others should know: I had the H&N 451 pellets recommended for the model 34-.177 Cal. I tried them and mistakenly ordered the 450 pellets also. Both work very well, just a bit of difference on the Chronograph and different point of impact at 50 yards. Now with the .22 caliber I use the recommended pellet, the RSW Superdome 14.5 grain. I don't care to experiment if it isn't necessary, but choose to settle in on the first pellet that works. This RSW Superdome works just about as well as anyone could expect, putting them practically in the same hole at 15 yards. Due to bad weather, I haven't had the opportunity to get out to the 50 yard range, but have been restricted to my backyard range of 15 yards, so I can't yet give opinion of groups at 50 yards. I feel quite confident that the results will be excellent if anything like my model 34s.
Things I liked: Balance of the rifle, quieter than my Diana RWS 34 Striker Combo. Fed Ex dropped it off this afternoon unpacked it, then mounted a UTG 3-9x40 Hunting scope. Took it out for a couple of shots of JSB Diabolo Exact Jumbo heavy 18.13gr. Took me 3 shots to get it zeroed in. Feels well built and should last a long time. Might add this is my first 22 and can not believe it is quieter than my other Diana (mentioned above).
Things I would have changed: As of right now not a thing, trigger from the factory is set to my liking, which is very light.
What others should know: Made just like all other Diana's I have handled. RIfle fits me very well but I'm what most would call med. sm. & 66. Would not be afraid to tell others to buy this gun with no worries. Will update if any problems show up.
how to reduce loudness? i have received to day morning al the gun are dry like spring and all joint why? pls help.
How much does this rifle weigh?
Probably in the neighborhood of 8 plus pounds without a scope.

This is from the Diana line, which is considered to be a premium line.
