Things I liked:Nice finish on metal parts, good feel and a fun shooter. The trigger is very nice but when making any adjustments you have to realize a little bit goes a *long* way. Breaking it in is a long process. At about 800 rounds I figure I'm about half way there.
Things I would have changed:Quality control. There were/are some problems. The pivot pin on the barrel was way to tight, the compression chamber seemed to be completely dry and the chamfer on the breech is about 20 degrees off center and requires pellet seating to avoid deforming the pellet skirt when closing up the barrel. I've read/seen other reviews with similar problems regarding lube and cocking issues. I realized when I bought it that I was paying for reputation, but if RWS/Diana wants to maintain that rep, they should probably pay a little more attention to QC. These issues are why I docked two stars from my overall rating and value. I still like my new rifle tho' and it's getting better as it breaks in.
What others should know:Years ago I had an RWS 45 that I could hit anything with. The '45 is now long gone and for years I've been wanting to replace it. Now that I have a little bit of time and a little bit of money (but now unfortunately getting old) I decided to get the contemporary version of it. My order was processed and delivered quickly and packaged safely. Beautiful finish on wood and metal parts. The plastic parts are not "plasticky" and the fit of all the components looked pretty good. Shooting the rifle, at first, was disappointing. I couldn't hold a group at all and the cocking was stiff and difficult to snap back into the battery position. I figured I was still breaking the thing in. After about 300 pellets or so I noticed that during the cocking cycle I started hearing a noise that sounded like a goose with asthma. Also, on closer inspection I noticed that the chamfer on the breech was off center and when the barrel is closed up it damaged the skirt. About 6 drops of chamber oil (2 at a time to prevent/reduce dieseling) banished the goose and I 'de-torqued' the pivot screw just a tad to free up the barrel. I've also added a seating step to the routine to avoid damaging the pellet skirt when closing it up. Now, after close to 800 rounds through it, the rifle and I are much better. The cocking is much smoother and shots are more consistent. But it's still just breaking in. This springer requires discipline! It's very sensitive to how it's held and consistency of your loading cycle.
Things I liked:Quality, accuracy, scope mount. Received my 34 with free shipping and 10% off Labor Day. Used my savings to buy pellets and the $10 out of the box firing test. The gun arrived in 5 days. Beautiful, large gun. Shot it open sights and with progressive bifocals that was futile. I mounted the scope with some confusion on the droop compensating mount but looked on youtube for guidance. The scope has yardage compensation and a focal ring that brought my target dots in crystal clear. I shot it three time with only 2 holes in my target at 50 yards. I blamed the missing hole on the occasional off mark stray. Turns out, the gun was placing pellets into the same holes. After 50 or so shots the scope is zeroed and i am holding 1" groups at 50 yards off a rest. Time to work that down with more practice.
Things I would have changed:If gun could be lightened without reducing balance or quality that would be good.
What others should know:This rifle is head and shoulders above box store offerings and accuracy exceeds any Sherdan, Daisy, Beeman, or Crosman I have owned. It is a real gun, real quality, real performance.
Things I liked:When I received this gun it was in mint condition, thanks for that Pyramid. It is a beautiful rifle and well made. I've put about 350 rounds thru so far and once sighted it is very precise, with dime to quarter size consistency at 30 yards,with Premier domed 14.3 gr pellets. The Super Domes were not nearly as good in the same gr. and Wad cutters were obviously very accurate for target. The trigger is great, easy to pull and adjustable. This IS NOT a gun to use for hunting large raccoons, even with a perfectly placed head shot. However for small game like squirrels, rats and fowl its perfect. If you need a lot of Power in a "lead pellet" tested gun? I also Purchased a Hatsan 125 .25 , Pyramid delivered both quickly, and in perfect condition. I now use their website a lot for research, and information about all the products they carry. In addition to the manufactures websites and youtube.com this is a great place to make purchases.
Things I would have changed:Price point is a bit steep considering it's not a .25,however the stock is what you're paying for, for me that's worth the price.
What others should know:I've really enjoyed shooting this gun at the rifle range. All the AK 47's that are around me while I'm breaking the barrel, and reloading are amazed at the dime to quarter size accuracy this delivers. They also look at the gun and see a real gun not a toy and are amazed its' "Only an air rifle" It is not a "Magnum" rifle but is good for general SMALL game hunting within 30 yards. ENJOY!!!
