I think that the RWS 34 Diana Air Rifle has a nice finish, it has great balance, and good accuracy. I have had my Diana model 34 for about 8 years now. It is .177 caliber and does a great job at taking squirrels and rabbits out to 35 yards,(longest distance I have taken game with this rifle). As mentioned in some of the other reviews, this gun does appear to smooth out after a few hundred rounds. ( I have shot about 500 pellets through mine). I topped my 34 with a Daisy Powerline 3-9 variable… Read Full Review

I own an R1 and a Kodiak and the RWS 34 is every bit as fun to shoot, and at substantially less dollars. It has less cocking effort and less movement during the firing cycle. I'm actually hitting nail heads on the barn at a measured 34 yards.(scoped of course). It really likes JSB Exacts and Crosman Premiers. This is my first RWS purchase in .22 . At some point I may have it tuned but you know what they say..." If it ain't broke......". An excellent purchase and I may end up getting one in .177… Read Full Review

I found a .22 barrel at a gun show and I can tell you it has become one of my favorites since. The action smoothed right out and it shoots about 860 fps. I have a dampamount installed with a nice scope. It is a sure fire winner if you can drop the $399 I paid (actually fully decked out with sling, mounts, scope and new barrel this little baby is sitting at abut $800 now)… Read Full Review

I have owned my RWS Daina 34 for 2 years now and have used it for pest control, squirell hunting and general target practice with only iron sights. This air rifle is a pleasure to shoot, only it gets tiring to carry and cock after a while… Read Full Review

Just received my Model 34. Decided to sight in the iron sights.
First I made sure all the screws were tight and then set the rear
sight in the middle of its adjustment. A target was placed 10 yds
away on the ground. I was laying on the ground and squezzed off the first shot. It hit 2 feet in front of the target. With the rear sight
elevated all the way up. It shot 3 inches below the 2 inch bullseye.
Mind you that's at 10 yds. Amarex said the barrel drops too much.
???. Send it back. At my cost… Read Full Review

This could be the best value I have ever experienced in firearms, and truly the most enjoyment I have had with a rifle. I expect to own the RWS Diana 34 for the long haul, very satisfied . This rifle looks awesome, the stock wood is plain but I think it's beautiful. I got the combo and I am impressed with the quality of the scope. I mounted it in a couple of minuets and dialed it in within 6 shots. The standard front sight could use some fiber optic upgrade, the rear sight although plastic… Read Full Review

Hey! it's a Diana. This gun is just too good for the value. As soon as you pick it up you can tell it is a classic. It shoots smooth and is very accurate. I mean very accurate. This gun shoots well out of the box, in open sights. This gun has great balance. I can group shots the size of a dime at 25 yards in the sitting position. This rifle is very powerful in it's class. I have the 460 Magnum in 22. cal. which is an extremely powerful rifle. I have fired both weapons into a telephone book… Read Full Review

I got the .22 caliber version, and boy howdy you know when you've hit the target! It has excellent power and has reminded me what hold sensitivity means.
It takes some effort to cock so you wont be getting several shots off in rapid succession unless you're like Ahnold, but I'm good with that. My arm gets tired fairly quickly if I try to shoot several rounds too fast. This Model 34 hefts like a powder burner, and I think the addition of a sling would be advisable for any field treks.
I… Read Full Review

Money well spent. It is very dependable. A gun you enjoy showing to others and watching their face as they shoot it. Mine is a 22 cal and shocks most folks with its power. This gun is a great representative to bring others to air gunning. It dismisses the thought that some have that air guns are just for kids… Read Full Review

Buy one today... if you are contemplating a 1000 fps pellet rifle you can find nothing that can compete with this German made wundergun! Accuracy is through the roof and that's about the only way to judge a gun. If you can shoot you can hit with this thing out to 80 yards. No joke... buy one today… Read Full Review

I've had my mod 34 for 7ish years now. I have fired many pellets through it over the years and I am very pleased with the gun. I only wish I would have tried it in .22 cal. (mine is .177). I squirrel hunt with it with great results though. I put a Burris 3x9 air gun scope on it, which cost more than the gun, but I think a good scope is 1 of the 3 major factors in having a air rifle to do serious hunting with. The other 2 being good quality pellets, and practice. As far as pellets go, my gun… Read Full Review

Overall a great gun! Good gun for your money. Also the trigger is a little tough not too bad, it doesn't bother me in the slightest. Cocking this rifle is tougher than some people expect, I figured it would be tough cause the rifle is heavy. My RWS 34 is a finely made rifle… Read Full Review

There's really no good reason to avoid the RWS34. It's reliable, well made, and backed by a decent warranty. But it just doesn't have that much to recommend it, either.
The appearance of the rifle does not disappoint. The metalwork and machining are excellent, the woodwork a notch below that. The sights are simple but robust (non-fiberoptic).
It's a bit on the heavy side and surprisingly hard to cock given the power level (a little lower than something like a Gamo Shadow or a Crosman Quest)… Read Full Review

Just got this rifle about 5 days ago, so can't comment about reliability. On the other hand, this thing LOOKS like it should outlast me (except, maybe, for the plastic parts). I was immediately impressed by how well made it seemed to be. A bit long and a bit heavy, but BUILT. I'm relatively new to airguns, but have about four decades of experience with firearms. I have recently purchased several air rifles and pistols, but I have to say this is the one that has impressed me the most. It… Read Full Review

I've had this rifle for over a year now and I decided that its time to write up a good review about it. I got this rifle by cobraairguns.com and do suggest that if your going to get it, to get it from this website. This rifle is very accurate (up to 90 yards with the scope). This rifle is a breeze to cock and load, anyone can do it. My friend has a FX GLADIATOR which is very expensive, and I personally like this one better because of its power (1000 fps).
One thing that I wished that I would… Read Full Review

This was the first "springer" rifle I have owned. I wanted a high quality entry level rifle and from everything I read the model 34 Diana was a great rifle for the money. I shot for a few days with iron sights and was disappointed with my groups. I thought that a scope would help but that only made matters worse. Since I was a novice at spring air rifles, I called and spoke to a technical rep from the company I bought the rifle from. He gave me some very helpful information, especially on… Read Full Review

I bought my RWS 34 in .177 in October of 2006, I am very pleased with it so far. I have shot around 1500-1600 pellets through it now and it is a very quality. From the first shot I was amazed that it didn't crack or have the report of having too much lube in the compression chamber, which was really nice. I recieved the rifle on Halloween night of this year, I bought it online. From an initial quality standpoint it is the best rifle I have ever held and shot. I have had in the past a AM77… Read Full Review

The RWS/Diana 34 has always been a rifle that I thought was a bargain of excellent quailty in material to make it. Its always been kinda rough and in need of tuning was the report. I used a cheap 4x32 Gamo scope and mount combo the rifle has a built in metal scope stop and indentions for 3rd party ss. Some complain about the 34s ability to hold a scope I didn't have a problem bc I went 1 piece but didn't really have problem with the cheap Gamo setup. The RWs 34 does recoil harder then most… Read Full Review

I brought my RWS 34 Diana 22cal and I am thrilled with the gun because it is even better than my Gamo 1000 22cal. Let's do some comparison with my Gamo 22cal.
Firstly, both of the guns are 22cal.
Build quality - Gamo came with plastic body and steel barrel. The RWS 34 Diana came with hard wood body and steel barrel and auto safety.
Accuracy - when it comes to accuracy, RWS 34 Diana is slightly more accurate than Gamo shadow 1000. At 20 yards distance I could get better accuracy with open… Read Full Review

My RWS 34 Diana .22 caliber came packaged in a brown cardboard box with no padding other than some Styrofoam inserts. One would think that this finely crafted rifle would warrant better packaging. Initial inspection proved that it had arrived safely, with no mars, dings or scratches on the metal parts. Bluing was beautiful and nicely polished. A recoil pad is sorely needed on this model, even if the price is raised a few bucks. The stock was well made, although the finish on the Beech wood was… Read Full Review
