Things I liked: This is a magnum springer. The quality of build is excellent and weight is reasonable compared to other magnums.Plan to find a heavy weight pellet providing the best results. Like all other magnums you'll have a give and take result. These rifles are very flat shooting giving good results at long ranges of forty yards and more and still having great knock down power on squirrels and rabbits. That being said magnums have more recoil so accuracy won't be as good as a 12 ft. lb. gun at shorter ranges. Value is very good. The recoil is large but RWS rifles tend to recoil straight out and not jump up and down producing better accuracy. The T06 trigger is great and I only prefer the Reckord trigger over it.
Things I would have changed: First as with all RWS rifles they are made with barrel droop so when adding a scope plan to add a compensator. After you add that setup the stock cheekpiece will be too low so you'll need to add to it's height. This is a big gun with a long stock and big dimensions. Great for a guy over six feet with long arms. Cocking is good for the energy produced. Alternatives for this would be the RWS48/52 or a Beeman R1. I have both a prefer them both over this rifle but that is because they fit me better. This is a great gun with good performance so you won't be making a mistake buying one. They all produce about 20ft.lbs.
What others should know: Anyone buying their first springer need to understand all the various trade-offs of power vs. accuracy and the distance they will be shooting and purpose. These are not target rifles. A 6-12 Ft.Lb. gun can give you half-dime size groups and reach out to 40 yds. Magnums may give you more like dime size groups and are more difficult to shoot because of recoil but preform more consistently at longer ranges. They are typically heavy to reduce recoil making them more difficult to carry. A 20ft.lb. gun like this may allow you to kill a woodchuck or a raccoon with head shots and the low powered rifles are undersized for that sized game. Before buying any air rifle know what you are trying to accomplish. This is a great gun if you understand what it's purpose is.
Things I liked: Beautiful workmanship, consistency, high power. Trigger is outstanding.
Things I would have changed: RWS should correctly state velocities. First 10 shots out of box averaged 815 fps with RWS Meisterkulgn .22 pellets. Plenty of power and accuracy. No need to overstate velocity
What others should know: Quality airgun. You really do get what you pay for with RWS Diana. Own panther 34 in .177 as well. Extremely accurate after 500 shots and spring settles down.
Things I liked: This is a very powerful air rifle. I have been shooting and hunting with air guns for 50 years and this one is head and shoulders above any other gun I have had. I bought an RWS model 34 back in the 1990's and I still have it and it works great, so I decided to buy another RWS in .22 caliber when I started having a squirrel problem. With the larger pellets I don't have to make a head shot to kill the squirrels, basically if I hit a pest anywhere it die fast. Very humane.
Things I would have changed: It could be a little shorter and lighter. This is a very LARGE rifle. On the other hand the large size keeps children from trying to play with it, which is a bonus when you have grand children like I do.
What others should know: Even with the great power of this rifle the trajectory is not very flat. Of course I am using18 grain pellets not 14 because the accuracy is greatly improved when you slow it down. But anyway I have taken the scope off and simply use the iron sights because it is so hard to guesstimate the range and hold over/under. If you want a truly flat shooting air rifle out to 60 yards or more you should probably buy a .177 caliber gun.
I own 2 RWS 34 T06's in .177 and they amaze me in accurately taking down smaller nuisance pests (squirrels, rabbits, etc.) around my farm quickly and humanely with head shots @ 25 yrds. I am going to purchase an air rifle in .22 for larger pests (armadillos, etc.) in ranges of 30-35 yrds. and really need to know if the 350 is that much harder to shoot than the 34? I shoot from a rest in a blind so any input on this rifle is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, RP.
Highly recommend it for your purposes. Not really any harder to shoot. Naturally it is somewhat longer, heavier, a little harder to cock and has a bit more recoil. But it is also deadly accurate, 1/2 inch groups @ 30 yds. and you get a huge increase in power, 24 FPE @ muzzle and 13 FPE @ 50 yds. Not quite, but almost, double the power of the RWS 34.
I have the understanding that this gun was originally produced using the T-05 trigger? If so, in what year did it get replaced with the T-06 trigger? Is there much difference in performance between the T-05 & T-06 triggers?
The T06 is much better than the T05. It is one of my favorite triggers only the Reckord triggers are better. The T06 second stage is very low so be prepared you touch it and the rifle fires.
To the best of my knowledge the T06 was introduced in the RWS34 in 2011 and in the RWS350 in 2012. Have not had any dealings with the T05 but have with the Quattro and the T06 in my 2 34's is light years ahead of the Quattro. Fully adjustable (tricky) but really can be tailored to your preferences. Hope this helps, RP.
What is the difference between the Diana and the UMAREX 350 22? Where are each made? Thank you very much
Their the same rifle. Umarex imports Diana's from Germany.
