Things I liked: Synthetic stock is very nice. Bluing on the steel is deep and rich. Easy to cock. Fiber optic sights are very crisp and easy to see. The TO6 trigger is amazing. This is the most accurate air rifle I've ever owned! Consistent one inch groups at 25 yards with out a scope. Very powerful. Recently dispatched a starling at 48 yards with the fiber optic sight!
Things I would have changed: I would prefer a rubber recoil pad on the stock instead of the soft plastic one by factory. But this is not a deal breaker.
What others should know: try the artillery hold and let the TO6 trigger do it's job. You will be amazed at how accurate this rifle is. I have no problem consistently hitting cans at 40 yards with the sights. Just ordered a Leapers 3x9 40mm scope for it. Anxious to see how well this does. Have tried RWS Superdomes and Super hollow points. Also Ruger 15.9 gr super point. Dime size groups with all these pellets at my 10 meter indoor range. This is a fantastic air rifle for this price point!
Things I liked: Once more I purchased an RWS Diana pellet rifle, and I have to admit that I must be a German kind of guy. Maybe it has something to do with a German surname? The fit, finish and engineering of RWS arms is second to none save for one issue I'll relate in a few moments. The stock seemed to be full thermoplastic and was devoid of flashings. The ridges on the fore stock was quite well relieves and provides for a sure grip, even with gloves should one be wearing them for some reason. The rifle seemed very well balanced and this was not negatively affected by the installation of a scope. The fiber optic tube was well protected by the globe-style front sight. The rear notch was provided with fiber optic tubes and all where well illuminated in natural light. The TO6 Trigger is better, new and out of the box, than many of my well-used triggers. I needed to make NO adjustments to it at all. It shoots like a dream.
Things I would have changed: As much as I really like my growing collection of RWS arms, one thing remains that is a vexation; the pronounced barrel droop. The 34-P has a marked degree of droop that even a droop compensating 11mm-to-Picatinny rail adapter could not overcome. The UTG adapter rail was designed with droop compensation and I STILL had to shim the scope! And, yes, I oriented the adapter properly! RWS really needs to look at their geometry and regrind the breech block to raise the barrel and get in line with the axis of the whole rifle. I guess I really don't understand why scope mounts are designed for barrel droop compensation and RWS can get the barrel manufactured to eliminate the need for such adapters. I also thin it is time for RWS to install Picatinny rails on their rifles instead of the traditional 11mm rails. Mounting scopes is so much more secure with these than the older rail system.
What others should know: The 34-P has proven to be exceedingly accurate within a few dozen rounds. Like my other RWS arms, it only seems to get better with each round! Lacking a chronograph, I can not give precise data about speed, but from the sounds that the Champion Trap makes, the 18 grain H&N Sniper Magnums are hitting with authority and are being completely flattened on impact. This suggests that the rifle is producing very respectable energy down range. This will only get better with time and increased use. I one is looking for a pest elimination rifle that can be used in inclement conditions, this may well be the pest rifle of choice. Properly cared for, it should last for decades (like my RWS Model 36).
Things I liked: Excellent craftsmanship.Deep, rich bluing on the steel.Absolutely no blemishes on the synthetic stock. Only a few Crosman Premier HP run through it out of the box to set the fiber optic sight. This rifle is a tack driving hammer! Only will be better once UTG droop compensator and scope installed. The cocking cycle is very smooth.And the TO6 trigger is marvelous. This brings out the accuracy.
Things I would have changed: Would prefer a rubber butt pad. So we will see how the soft plastic one holds up. But it is not a deal breaker.
What others should know: Use the artillery hold with this rifle and let the TO6 trigger do it's job. As with any air rifle experiment with different ones to see which shoots best. Will be trying RWS superdomes, JSB, and H-N in the future. But the Crosman Premiers were impressive.
Can sling swivel studs be installed in the RWS 34P? Is there enough material in the synthetic stock to hold a sling swivel stud? Does a clamp to magazine type swivel mount work, being clamped to the barrel, work? I would need a sling system installed, not a sling with loops to go over barrel and stock.
Is the RWS 34P .22 powerful enough to kill a feral cat with a well placed body shot, or will it require a well placed head shot?
Yes a well placed body shot would be the best .
Can the open sights be removed on the 34P, If so, will it affect the sound when the gun is fired? It looks like the front sights and the supressor are one and the same unit.
It can be removed but it's usually quite ugly underneath.There is no suppressor on this model.
