Things I liked: It's beautiful, accurate
Things I would have changed: Rear sight, better manual would be nice as the directions for adjusting the trigger are clear as mud.
What others should know: I was ready to send this gun back right after I got it, my grouping was all over the place at 25 yards through the Leapers scope, even after 200 rounds. Then, I removed the scope. With the open sights I was putting shots almost directly through the same hole at 20 yards. I was hesitant to take the scope off as I had gone for the 20 for 20 deal, but I am glad I did. After another 100 shots or so, I put the scope back on and it's a tack driver. I didn't even have to sight it in to be just off the center of the bulls eye by about 3/4". My other issue was how hard it was to cock. Seriously, it was tough to even swing the barrel back up. I loosened the screw the barrel pivots on a bit and it is much easier but the screw was so tight I needed to use and impact driver, the type you smack with a hammer, to break it loose...
Things I liked: I'm a 10 meter shooter but I wanted a classic springer and I was impressed by the customer reviews of this gun. I'm impressed with the quality of the simple wood stock and classic bluing of the metal. As a PCP guy it took a while to figure out how to shoot this gun, but the accuracy even with open sights has me putting pellets through the same hole at 10 meters. The cocking effort is very reasonable and downright easy once the technique is mastered. My 110 lb 17 year old daughter can cock it easily enough with good instruction. The trigger is surprisingly good for a gun in this price range and does not make me miss my 10 meter guns very much. My rifle likes the RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2 gr wad cutters. 10 rounds yielded a hi of 934 fps; low of 923; average of 928 with a standard deviation of 4 fps. That's 16 foot pounds of muzzle energy.
Things I would have changed: I borrowed a buddy's much less expensive springer that actually felt quite a bit smoother when cocking. This one feels fairly rough. Also I will likely add an adjustable butt plate to this gun to gain some elevation for using the open sights so I don't have to crank my neck so much to get my eyes down to the line of sight.
What others should know: I love cocking this gun. It really feels like human powered shooting. I love how this thing bucks when you pull the trigger and the burnt oil smell afterwards. It has screws that actually loosen over time (a shocker to a PCP guy) and when you tighten them it changes where the pellets fly! It really matters where an how you hold this thing too - do it the same way every time or you won't be consistent. I shoot this gun indoors. This gun is at the top of or maybe even a little over the power range I would recommend for indoor shooting (unless at a gun range). 7 or 8 layers of cardboard stop the wad cutters from my 10 meters guns but this thing will blow through all that with a great deal of energy left to spare. It sends wad cutters right through 3/4 inch pine. A steel trap would be a good idea. I have a lot of novice/no experience shooters at my house and they don't get to shoot this gun.
Things I liked: My Diana 34 (.177 cal)was my first serious air rifle that I purchased for plinking and field target use. For a modestly priced springer, this rifle is a tack driver: I can shoot dime size groups out to 35 yards. The stock and bluing on the rifle is excellent for a rifle in this price category. I have taken 3rd place twice in field target matches at my local air gun club. The trigger is pretty good, and breaks at around 1 lb in stock form. My rifle likes H&N Snipers (8.5gr), and shoots them at 870 fps with less than 10 fps. I barrel bore is machined so well that I rarely have to clean it.
Things I would have changed: A little deeper stock would be nice for field target use. The T06 trigger is good, but it does have some second stage creep. The cocking stroke of the rifle is a little 'crunchy' with the stock main spring. The main spring on mine broke after 4,000 shots, so be prepared to change the spring.
What others should know: By a pellet pens with a pellet seating tool if you purchase this rifle, such as the one made by Air Venturi. Experiment with pellet depth in the breach. You also may want to install a Vortek spring and guides when you main spring breaks. The Vortek kit makes this rifle a smooth, accurate shooter.

When I got my red 34 the sights did not adjust high enough for me to sight in the rifle. Later I mounted a utg scope mount and scope. The rifle was working fine until the barrel started getting stuck and not being able to break currently it is stuck should I just oil the moving parts or what should I do???
Do these have the Diana huntress logo below the Rws logo, or just the Rws logo?
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
