Things I liked:I have been in the business of rebuilding mechanical things for 40 years and gunsmith work. Just to look at this it reminds me of a Mercedes Unimog. Quality material and assembly.
Things I would have changed:I wish it had swivels for a sling, I may yet figure out a way. I am going to install the Vortek Spring and Seal kit, turn it into a $400 gun,,,Hard to improve on this.
What others should know:Gamo, Beaman, Crossman,,all fine, but this is a step up, 3 things. Just looks cleaner built. Screws don't fall out as bad as the others I owned. and accuracy is noticeably more consistent. All for not much more $$$$
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.
Things I liked:The rifle arrived quickly in fine condition, with no dings or defects. Took the stock off to inspect the mechanism and see if it needed any lubrication. Surprisingly, everything was lubed generously from the factory. Enough so that I needed to wipe the inside of the stock with a cloth because of excess oil collecting on it. Cocking from the beginning was smooth, with no odd noises. No noticeable twang or sprong sounds. After about a 100 rounds I was able to put 5 rounds on target that cover a dime; shooting at about 15 paces out. I shoot left-handed and the poly stock fits me fine (6'0" tall; average build guy). The stock is finished well, with very little of the mold seams showing. The T06 trigger is absolutely fantastic, and it's why I picked the RWS in the first place. Consistent with no gritty or rough pull. I left the factory settings for the trigger as is.
Things I would have changed:The butt pad isn't soft rubber, but it is a soft type plastic (like a nylon plastic) and does give a little when I push my finger-nail into it. Definitely is not any brittle type of plastic. Should last a long time. It wouldn't hurt if RWS would just go ahead and put a rubber pad on this anyway. I'm really nit-picking here folks.
What others should know:I mounted a UTG droop-compensating weaver rail designed for the newer T06 RWS rifles. On top of that I put a 4x32 UTG AO scope. The whole thing went together smooth and easy. Having the Adjustable Objective (AO) is an absolute must. I have other 22 LR rimfire rifles with fixed 50 yard parallax scopes and it sucks if you want to target shoot closer; like at the 25 yard line. For this RWS air rifle (.177 cal), I plan on staying in the 10-35 yard range. The scope allows me to dial everything in perfectly. Totally happy with this RWS 34p. It's my first real air rifle. I would definitely order the same setup if I had to do it over again.
