Things I liked: Oh man, so many positive things to say. Beautiful, understated, classic wood stock design and finish. Mirror-like blueing. Superb fiber-optic open sights, easy adjustments. Nice heft and dead-on pointing. The trigger . . . . so, so much better than the Crosman Nitro Venom I tried a few months ago, maybe the best trigger I've ever had the pleasure of using on any gun, right out of the box. Barrell delivered remarkably clean. Graceful lines. The .22 hits plenty hard. Recoil, to me, is not a big deal. I paid for the 10-shot test, feel that that was money well spent. I like the placement of the safety button, right in front of the thumb. Not a loud shooter - - okay for my suburban back yard.
Things I would have changed: Hard for me to imagine asking for more out of a $300 gun. Maybe, as others have said, RWS could go with metal for the trigger guard.No big deal, though - - that's nitpicking, really. It's just a lovely rifle.
What others should know: This rifle has stability and balance that, for lack of a better word, is just "right." I gave one to myself as a retirement gift after having been away from shooting for more than 25 years. I figured that shooting from the standing position using open sights would be a little embarrassing, but to my amazement, I was putting 10 shots into a 2-inch circle at 75 feet on day one. As a nearsighted old guy who hasn't shot in a long, long time, that made me very happy. In fact, I'm going to hold off buying a scope for awhile - - the open sights are that good. This gun points as well as any rifle I've ever shouldered. It reminds me of a beloved Remington 514 bolt-action .22 that belonged to my grandfather, a gun so true you could shoot pennies off a fence rail all day long at 20 paces. Build quality is superb. A pleasure to shoot and hold. I've put about 400 shots through this beauty and it's breaking in very nicely. Totally satisfied, would recommend to a friend.
Things I liked: Trigger pull is great. So far accuarcy is good at 10 meters.
Things I would have changed: White spacer under recoil pad. Higher comb on stock.
What others should know: Cocking effort is approx 40 lbs not 33. Squeek in chamber or spring. Thinking about returning gun for evaluation
Things I liked: I am no expert on modern-day break barrel pellet guns the last time I shot a pellet gun was 50 years ago. As a teenager then I had a Benjamin Sheridan pump and a Crossman CO2 pellet gun. About four months ago I bought my first break barrel pellet gun a Gamo bone collector in 177 caliber and like it. Decided to get another break barrel in 22 caliber did some research online reviews etc. and decided to purchase the Diana RWS 34. I like this rifle it is definitely well-made with quality materials and workmanship. It is German made and reflects that fact. Out of the box with the open sights I was able to get it sighted in pretty quick with consistent groups. I then put a leapers 3 x 9 x 32 scope on got that sighted pretty quickly and I'm having some very consistent groups. I've only put about 100 pellets thru it so it's not broken in yet but already am showing excellent accuracy. Very pleased with this rifle and look forward to shooting it more and getting to know it better.
Things I would have changed: RWS packaging leaves a lot to be desired, most of the stryofoam in the box was busted up but rifle was fine. I'm not crazy about the safety I cannot put safety back on with my thumb alone, The downward pressure stops it from coming back I have to grab it between my thumb and index finger but it's really not a big deal on a single shot rifle. The instructions for adjusting the T06 trigger just doesn't make sense to me the way it's written. Maybe it's the German or maybe it's me but I think they need to have an American write the instructions on it. I'm still working on it and haven't yet found what I like but again this is kind of a minor thing and getting used to the trigger will be fine
What others should know: Pyramid air's customer service has been outstanding. The first 34 they sent to me didn't feel like it was snapping or locking or seating shut after loading but I thought maybe this was how the gun is designed, I really didn't have the experience to know whether this is how this rifle is designed I shot it for about four or five days and noticed if I put any force up underneath the forward part of the stock the breech would open. I called PA and ran it by them and they said no shouldn't be like that, you send it back to us and they sent me this one I just reviewed. PA as a loyal customer in me
Is the barrel droop just part of this model design and thus present on every rifle?
My understanding is it is a design character of many break barrel air rifles. I mounted 4-16x50AO scopes on my 34T06's using MNT-DNT06 (PY-A-4191) droop compensating mounts w/ low rings so any droop is negated. Hope this helps, RP.
is the diana goddess still on the brand new model 34?
She is on the RWS 34 T06 rifle I purchased in 2013 and also the one I purchased in 2015; not sure of any reason she will not to be on the current RWS 34 rifles also.
Pellet doesn't seem to seat straight or flush no matter what I do. It tilts downward and the bottom of the skirt is exposed. I could push it in further but it still seems crooked. Tried different pellets, a pen...is this a defect I need to send to RWS? Or anyone else had this problem?
You can use an air venturi pellet seater Pellet Pen and Pellet Seater,... to seat the pellet in.
I have a D34, and it is designed with the angle on the breech face. I use a pellet pen adjusted so the bottom pellet skirt is just flush with the breech face. Don't seat the pellet in too far because you will loose velocity. Don't seat the pellet too far out, otherwise the pellet skirt will get bent when the barrel is closed an accuracy will suffer.
The breach is machined on an angle giving the appearance that the pellet is crooked,but isn't not.There is nothing wrong with your rifle if I understand your question correctly.
