No need to worry about cocking difficulty as that's where this rifle really shines (just 33 lbs.- although our own tests showed just 30 lbs.). Both calibers are ideal for plinking, paper targets and spinners. Like to hunt? The .22 cal. should be your choice for small game and pests. If you're a serious airgunner on a budget, the RWS 34 was made for you!
Very accurate and easy to shoot - I like the old school feel in my hands - like the 22s I grew up with when I was a kid so many years ago - my grandad would have loveed this too.
I've had zero issues with her over the year's and would like to say its one air rifle you buy once,
And keep for life.
My only complaint was it didn't come with a few pellets. I could just stare at it until I got some.
it's more than what I wanted to spend. With that in mind, I've been frustrated, mad, confused. I finally said enough is enough, and bought my Diana in 22 cal. I should have done it a long time ago. I never knew there
was this much quality in an air rifle. I never knew there were triggers like this in an air rifle. It's definitely taking some getting used to. I can consistently bust bottle caps at various ranges, and it's always scoped in.
That was a problem before. Every day I was sighting in. I have a good scope on Diana, and I couldn't be happier. A special Thank you to Airgun Depot for getting her here so quick. I ordered on a sunday night, it
was shipped out Monday, and I got it Wednesday. That's Fast.
cheap merchandise outperform higher dollar merchandise. But, in my case with airguns, it's true. My Diana 22 is what I've been looking for. I like it more every time I take it out. I consistently bust bottle caps at
various ranges and it's always sighted in. That was my biggest problem with my other guns. I was always sighting them in. I'm using Crosman Premier HP 14.3 grains and they shoot great, and they don't cost a
fortune. There's absolutely nothing I don't like about my Princess Diana. Quality gun with quality scope= A lot of fun.
If I ever got another air gun it would definitely be a RWS.
The two gentlemen owners are pleasure to work with. I will for sure purchase my next air rifle and pistole from them
Thanks to AirgunDepot for having everything I needed in stock, and for teaching me how to use it through numerous blog articles. Very happy newbie!
Was trying to figure out why this gun was returned,and have found two things.
Some airguns,rare in Diana have tight barrel latch,takes a "tap" with the bottom of your hand to open the latch,without this you will pull&pull,UK Webley`s were most all like this.
The other thing I found was wondering POI @ 30 yds.I found the stock front screw bracket that has the 1 phillips screw to the bottom of the receiver tube was loose,had to degrease it&use Locktite to cure it.
After this I was shooting dime size groups@ 40yards.
Overall awesome gun, awesome price, awesome quality as always from AirGun Depot
The price was unbeatable, so I've ordered one in .177 caliber and it arrived at my door 4 days later.
It came packed in double cardboard boxes and wrapped in a single layer of bubble wrap with a copy of the instructions/manual.
Apart from a tiny stamped in "R" on the action and a 1/4 inch long scratch in the bluing it looked like a rifle fresh from the factory in Germany.
And here comes the BUT: upon closer inspection I found a 2" long crack in the end of the wooden stock, going from the lower butt plate screw all the way through the stock.
Since the packaging was undamaged I doubt it happened during transport, in fact I think that the butt plate screw was tightened too much and caused the wood to crack. Annoyingly this slipped through QC before packaging.
Since I was going for a custom stock anyway I didn't return the rifle, but I let Airgun Depot know about the issue.
The rifle features the very good T06 trigger and it shoots like a dream!
Usually I am not a big fan of fiber optic sights but I actually like the ones on this 34 a lot. They are a lot more refined than the ones you find on most Chinese made guns.
The cocking on this break barrel isn't too hard and it snaps back into the closed position with a solid "clunk".
Overall you can see and feel the German craftsmanship, it feels solid and sits well in your hands and I am sure with the right handling and care the RWS 34 will last for decades!
There's a reason why this is one of the most highly regarded break barrel air rifles on the marked.
This rifle has the T06 trigger which is awesome compared to the Crosman/Benjamin triggers I'm used to.
The first 50-100 shots were slightly hard and noisy to cock. I thought maybe there was not enough lube in chamber. After about 100 shots, everything smoothed out a bit, and now after 300-400 shots, things are smooth & have worked in nicely. Very accurate rifle, even with open sights and fun to shoot. Highly recommended to go the refurb route.
This morning, mounted a fresh Leapers AO scope with sturdy 2-piece mounts, ran a Boresnake through the barrel, set up a ten yard target and proceeded to zero her in. On 2 shots, only had to move the cross hairs 1/4 turn up and left to get a center shot. Then proceeded to shoot for consistency. Unbelievable! This little girl put 4 out of the first 5 shots inside a quarter. Don't understand how she does so well without hundreds of pellets being run through her. By the way, this T06 trigger is unbelievable smooth.
This is the second great buy in this rifle that I have made with AG-Depot. the first was in .22 cal., and I couldn't be happier. Thanks to these guys for such a great buy!
Thank you Airgun Depot!
I use the steel sights, no scope.
