Things I liked: It made the firing cycle very smooth.
Things I would have changed: Deliver a spring kit that will perform as advertised.
What others should know: I bought and tried two different PG2 HO kits. Both turned a 17 foot pound rifle into a sub 12 foot pound rifle. They dropped the velocity of a Diana 34 by 150 fps on average. Went back with OEM spring and velocities returned right back to over 700 fps. I won't use them again. Very bad results.
Things I liked: Straightforward brief instructions in good English. Went into the Diana 34 very easily with minimal frustration on my part as a first time DIYer of springs. Have only fired 30 or so shots to set the spring and so far I am impressed with the ragged hole at 10 meters with CPHP 14.3 gr pellets!
Things I would have changed: instructions too brief for first timer, but overall good idea what to do.
What others should know: My Diana 34 spring broke at around 5200 rounds. I did fire about ten 18 gr. pellets through it, and the gun did not like them at all. I thought that the original spring should have lasted a bit longer. Hope the Vortek spring has better longevity to it. Had to build a spring compressor, and the fitting to engage the Diana spring end (my word, not maybe the best word). That took more time that changing the spring on the air rifle. Diana/RWS should have included the spring shroud as part of the original gear. I believe it will help with noise and vibration.
Things I liked: The Vortek definitely made my gun shoot much smoother. There's no noticeable spring rattle in the stock. There's more consistency from shot to shot, my groupings shrank slightly after the upgrade kit was installed.
Things I would have changed: It would be really nice if there were detailed instructions on installation, the included "instructions" aren't very useful and pretty much just say, take the old one out and put the new one in.
What others should know: This seems to be a great kit and I'm glad I went ahead and added it to my gun. The process is a little involved and if I were to buy a gun from pyramid I would probably have them install it. Also a spring compressor tool would be a good idea, I didn't have one and it was a little hairy getting the spring back in the gun, luckily my wife hasn't noticed the dent in the cupboard door yet.

will this fit the mod.54 and if so is it a stronger spring than the one offered for the mod 54 and 48
No.This kit is just for a RWS 34. The RWS 54 kit is Vortek PG3 Tune Kit -.... No. The spring in a tune kit will not be stronger than the factory spring. A tune kit makes the firing cycle smoother.
Will this kit fit the D 430L? If not, is there a Vortek kit that would work for the D 430L?
No. No vortek kit at this time.
I own an old RWS diana model 36. It looks like the 34. Question is will this refurbish kit work properly on my model 36?
