Things I liked: I just received my new rifle from pyramydair. .22 cal model 34. Excellent balance of value, quality, function and LONGEVITY. It's my second RWS model 34. The first, a .177cal, I've been so pleased with for 26 years that I thought I'd finally buy the .22cal I really wanted when bass pro only had the .177 in stock. I was a little apprehensive as they've changed it some over the years, plastic parts, sights, trigger guard and such, but I'm here to say after inspection, lubrication and about 300 shots, by all outward appearance, it's actually a schweeter rifle than my first. The plastic parts are of very high impact material and I also appreciate they added a buttplate, as my old rifle's bare butt shows a real beating. All in all, the details of product received look much nicer than the product in the picture, and from initial order to ultimate receipt, Pyramyd's handling of the transaction was absolute top shelf.
Things I would have changed: If shoots as hard, reliable and true as my old one come 2044, I won't say a bad word about it. I'll hafta let ya know then.
What others should know: That new trigger is incredibly light. Even right out of the box. It sorta took some getting used to. I accidentally discharged it downrange a couple times because I'm so used to the old one, which in itself wasn't by any means what I'd call a heavy trigger.
Things I liked: I purchased it here for $219 in Nov. 2013. My gun is a .177 caliber. The gun's fit and finish is excellent. The T06 trigger is even better than the the Rekord trigger; it's as close to a match trigger as you can get from a sporter spring airgun. I can feel exactly where the trigger "breaks" and it is predictable and repeatable from shot-to-shot. I didn't need to make any adjustments to the trigger. At the beginning, the firing cycle is harsh, buzz, and "twang." To my surprise, after about 25 shots, the buzzing is gone, and the "twang" is gone; the gun shoots smooth now, don't know why.. I won't be needing a Tuning kit. This gun shoots smoother than all my spring guns without a tune job. My gun shoots JSB Exact at 894 fps (14.9 ft-Lbs). Accuracy is not as good as my HW97K and R11, but both of these guns are in the higher price range than my Diana 34; however this is a very versatile gun, it is light weight, slim, not muzzle heavy and shoots hard enough.
Things I would have changed: Make it more quiet, it is not backyard friendly.
What others should know: The cocking effort is between my HW35 and HW97K. When my gun is new it sounded like it is exploding, perhaps it is burning oil, but after about 8 shots the exploding sound stopped. When cocking, the gun makes a dry creaking sound. I put a some oil on the main spring and it still sound the same.
Things I liked: I bought my Diana Model 34 in 1992. It still performs flawlessly. In fact it has a lifetime guarantee and I have sent mine back twice in the last 25 years because it began to lose power. Both times it was returned to me in a timely fashion shooting more powerfully than when it was new. I have shot this rifle thousands upon thousands of times. In fact I shot it over 200 times today, and it was shooting less than an inch groups at 40 yards. I paid $169 for it and in my opinion it is still the finest air rifle ever manufactured. I just bought an RWS/Diana Model 350 Magnum because I wanted a .22 caliber air rifle and now I wish I had just bought another Model 34 in .22 to go with my .177.
Things I would have changed: Absolutely nothing, it is the finest air rifle in the world. The perfect balance between power and accuracy. Anything more is overkill and harder to shoot.
What others should know: Buy the .22 if you like to shoot squirrels and are not always able to make a head shot. The .177 is very flat shooting though, it is probably all you need.

When out hunting, how long can you keep the RWS/Diana cocked before losing power or harming spring?
I would recommend no longer than a few hours at a time. There is not data to support a given amount of time damaging or hurting the gun if left cocked, but personally, a few hours is my limit
I was given the RWS/Diana and would like to know if it is a .177 caliber or .22 caliber. how can you tell the difference? It does not appear to be acknowledged on the gun.
Check the breach block it's usually there,
First 2 shots are almost always dead on but my 3rd shot doesn't even hit the target. Why???
