“I bought a RWS 34 Diana in .22 Cal. put a RWS C-Mount...”

Written on: 09/06/2006 by JerryL99 (2 reviews written)

I bought a RWS 34 Diana in .22 Cal. put a RWS C-Mount on it and a better RWS scope the 300. (very very nice scope compared to the 350 scope) Sighted right in and is powerful. Have about 300 shots through it so far . Got the whole deal for 275.00 ( that scope is a reg 160.00 - 180.00 scope got it for 90.00

I was so impressed that I found another 34 in .177 on sale it was the combo only differance is that it has the RWS cheaper scope (350) gun also is great but same feelings about it… Read Full Review

Well so far what i have observed is that The RWs 34 in .22 Cal shoots best as far as accuracy with the RWS Super H Point Field Grade 14.2 grn. pellet or the RWS Meisterkugeln Professional Line .
The RWS 34 in .177 Shoot best with RWS Meisterkugeln Professional Line 8.2 Grns. I haven't made any penetration tests as yet on target shooting and killing paper at 55 feet to 75 feet.
I have tried several brands of pellets from Beemans/Crossman/Gamo/Daisy/Tech Force etc and they are all over the paper. I use the pellets I mentioned above and I get 3/4 - 1 in groups. So I'm happy.
Take care ...safe shooting ...have fun ...and enjoy. Jerry.

Hi dookietx's
<br/>
<br/> Thanks for your comment and your findings ....Enjoyed Your Post .
<br/>
<br/> Oh I did order a GMT Spring Kit and the special tars. Built my own spring compressor and took down both guns. Put the new spring into the .22 It fired a Lot smoother but the power was cut back to a level that I didn&#039;t like so I put the stock factory spring back in it .
<br/> What I did was take the gun totally apart de burred / honed everything that moved ...slid .....or was hinged. Then lubed the parts accordingly with whatever tars or grease.
<br/> The guns now shoot VERY smooth and no twang or vibration to speak of I&#039;d still like to make or get made a guide and follower etc for the stock springs .
<br/> I don&#039;t have a chrony so the stock and tune up velocity wasn&#039;t checked or compared.
<br/> Take Care Have Fun Shoot Safe .......... JerryL

I had the same problem with my scope running out of adjustment. While shopping for adjustable mounts, I decided to remove the scope and shoot iron sights.
<br/> Rear sight was maxed out on elev. and still was shooting low. Took gun apart, cleaned lubricated reassembled and what&#039;s this? Now it&#039;s shooting approx. ten inches high.
<br/> Put scope back on and it rezeroed. I&#039;m still waiting on a proper scope mount, however the point of my post is that barrel droop although likely in your case is only one possibility.

Armbar, All RWS Diana rifles (I have the Diana 34) have what&#039;s known as Barrel Droop. This means that the rifle barrel (The breaking part) is pointed slightly down in relation to the rest of rifle. This is not a design flaw, just a fact of most break barrel rifles and some side levers and others. Barrel Droop is not a problem when you are using the factory iron sights, because these are mounted directly on the barrel. Once you put a scope on it however, its a whole other story. What you need is an adjustable one piece scope mount like the B-Square 17101 (the one I use) or the Beeman Adjustable. Both of these mounts allow you to raise the rear of the scope enough to compensate for barrel droop. The RWS C mount is adjustable as well.
<br/>
<br/>There are even non adjustable, "fixed mounts" available that are permanently raised at the rear to compensate for barrel droop, and they come in two fixed elevations. Try www.straightshooters.com, they sell all these units. As does www.pyramydair.com. Hope this helps. Safe shooting.

I just got a 34 yesterday Spent all day sighting it in. It shoots low, very low. I tried two scopes and two different sets of rings. I had to shim the rear rings to get it to center. Anyone else have this issue?

Hi sportytj on 30th Jul 2006. Thank you for your input / question....I have both RWS 34&#039;s with scopes .One(1) each in .177 and .22. The .177 has the RWS 350 scope (cheapie 4x32 ) it&#039;s ok . My .22 has the better RWS 300 scope it is a LOT nicer and is longer and clearer with better cross hairs and has AO
As for the guns, they are BOTH new production runs? I would guess made in 2006.
They both feel/cock/and look the same, BUT for some reason I like the .22 better.
I can&#039;t just say why? It seems to be more accurate and seems a bit smoother cocking. It does have a harder recoil etc.
The .177 has a LOT of Power and I use them both mostly for just killing Paper/twigs and fun stuff to see if I can knock it off/over or shatter it . I use the .177 on chipmonks/mice/moles.
The .22 on coons/possums/ground hogs. I am going to put JM tune kit set in both guns starting with the .22 first. Not sure if I am going full blown Tune Set or just the spring?
My guns BOTH like RWS ( Meisterkrugen (spelling)?? Wad cutters (.177 is I think 8.3 grns) (.22 is I think 14 ish something grns). My .22 does NOT LIKE ANY BRAND HEAVY PELLET !!!!!!!
So anyway hope this helps ....Take care have fun be safe .........Jerry

I belive the RWS gun is the best warranty in any industry! I'm talking cars, planes and trains, electronics lol. I've been told you send the gun back to nj and they either fix it or order a new gun for you. Gamo has a lifetime limited warranty but isn't the same thing from what i've been told. Way to go diana/rws.

As posted above I have 2 RWs 34&#039;s in .177 and .22. They are both new . I am planning to shot them in about 1000 -1500 shots each then would like to send them off for/to a tuner???
Does anyone have any preferances? More over what will that do to my life time warranty with RWS??? Has anyone had any experience with this? I am thinking of using Charlie Da Tuna?? is there any other tunners that come highly recommended?

Thank you all ...replys. Have fun ...shoot safe ...make all your shots count ...and may they all be 10&#039;s and all shots over cutting the prior one ...... Jerry.

I bought my RWS 34 Diana about 3 weeks ago. At first I wasnt sure whether it was the gun or the scope that was a little off. Shot for shot was maybe about 2 inches back and forth. But since then I have put a couple hundred shots on the gun ( breaking it in) and dialed in the scope and the accuracy and precision is dead on. I put 4 holes yesterday at 25 yards inside a dime. Shot a squirrel off a brick wall at 50 yards and he didnt get up. Killed some bunnies and cats and could not be happier… Read Full Review

Hello,
<br>Actually the power of a good 34 .22 may be higher than the power of a R9. My 34 does a solid 16,5fpe and most Weihrauchs would be hard-pressed to equal this.
<br>The Diana / RWS is a no frills but very sturdily made gun.
<br>Also, the long barrel of the standard 34, makes it an easy gun to cock. An advantage not to be overlooked in a light magnum springer.
<br>Kind regards.

German guns are too hyped up, but the RWS 34 Diana is about as good as it gets. If RWS made a version of the MP5K I would sell my mother to get my hands on it.

After 12 years of owning my RWS 34 Diana air rifle, it is still showing it's brute force in cocking and shooting, completely trespassing soup cans at variable distances.
The weight of it can be a little heavy for younger shooters.
The sights are also very well built and effective.
The aesthetics in my opinion makes this gun look very slender, smooth and beautiful.
About durability... I had it repaired for the first time yesterday after 12 years, for de-rusting the barrel a little bit, and to… Read Full Review

I own a RWS 34 Diana air rifle 0.22 and a Norica Marvic Style cal. 0.177. I have had my Diana for 12 years (purchased in 1993), and I'm very happy with it.
Since it was my first air rifle, and I could only use it 3 or 4 times a year in the holidays; it is only in the last few years I have managed to have my accuracy reasonably improved.
First it's an extremely well built air rifle, undoubtedly with superior quality amongst the other manufacturers. The superior quality is present in almost every… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2005 by rob3dr (18 reviews written)

I got my RWS 34 Diana on close out for $115 and for that price, I couldn't be happier.

The gun handles well and has good power using both 7.9gr and 10.5gr Premiers. The 7.9gr shoot at about 900fps while the 10.5 shoot at around 820fps.

Accuracy is good out to 30 yards, but that is about the upper limit of this gun. I'm sure there are those out there that have shot at longer distances, but 30 yards is where I stop with this gun. At that distance, on a good day I can get nickel sized… Read Full Review

Hello rob3dr, this is Pedro, curious about the hold with my Diana 34 (as for any other of my 2 airguns), I surely do believe that, I've started to get much better accuracy results since the day I've learned to hold it LOOSELY instead of very "consistently".
<br>From the moment I started to lightly grab the rifle and loosely put it against my shoulder, I surely had a BIG difference and really improved my accuracy.

Pedro... The 34 in .22 should be fine with mid weight pellets in the 14-16gr range being a more mile magnum. As for the 350 in .177, you really need heavier pellets to make use of the larger powerplant in that gun. I&#039;d recommend Kodiaks or Crosman Premier Heavy pellets. Both are in the 10.5gr range. Another option for the 350 would be the Korean Eun Jins. If I remember correctly, they are close to 13gr in .177

Hello Sportytj, this is Pedro Laia from Portugal, I've read your comment, about the Diana 34 cal .22, were you tell you hope “it has enough power for this heavy pellet”.
<br>The deal is this: I do have 3 air rifles, being the Diana 34 cal .22 my first one with already almost 13 years of use.
<br>However it still does show its brute force when shooting at several targets at various distances, I can also testify that force when "breaking" it's barrel to cock the rifle.
<br>Certainly in the present day, it does not possess the exactly same amount of spring strength that it had at 13 years ago, but I only perceive a very little difference - and all that with the ORIGINAL spring!!
<br>You can also read my reviews (Pedro Laia), which are some of the last ones for Diana 34, right behind "rob3dr" reviews.
<br>Concluding, you can rest assure, it indeed “has enough power for that heavy pellet”; you will not be disappointed with this air rifle.
<br>I'm not because the Diana 34 cal .22 really is a fine example of reliability and durability.

Actually, I have owned a B20, that I didn't like and I do have the B26 and I love it. I'm going to wait a little bit more before doing a review on the B-26-2. As for .22 or .177, I don't shoot competively so I use .22 for most everything. The 34 is considered to be a really good mid power .22 hunter, but I only have it in .177.

That's true. By consistent, I mean to hold it the same way each time...and that way is loosely. As long as you do that, springers can be very accurate. Not so much as a good PCP, but very accurate nonetheless.

Well I don't think you have this, or any other springer figured out! First, use pellets that DON'T fall out of the barrel, the pellet should require a small amount of force to be seated in the breech. One reason you may be having poor accuracy is because the pellets you are using are to loose to properly contact the rifling in the barrel causing inconsistency. This poor choice of pellet is probably a factor in your low velocity readings aswell, if the pellet is to loose it will start to move down the barrel before the air pressure in the chamber reaches optimum levels, and won't harness the energy of the piston. Try different brands of domed pellets, and use the open sights to figure out which ones group best in your rifle. Then go and get a good quality one peice scope mount, and a heavy recoil rated airgun scope(this will cost you quite a bit). And last, hope that the seal and or piston hasn't been damaged from however many times you dry fired it. Even using a pellet that is to loose in the barrel can eventuall cause premature wear on the internal parts of a springer. Personally, I think you should have gotten all of these things figured out before you wrote your review.

I have the same problem. I am wondering if I'm using cheap pellets that start to tumble within 15-20 yards. I was really getting frustrated trying to sight in my new model 34 but then tried my Marlin 982VS 22-mag. Major confidence booster there.

The Diana 34 is a good rifle, but make sure you haven't broken the soring with all that dry firing. No pellet should drop out of the breech regardless of make, and if you can open up the gun yourself you might find that the main spring guide has broken, which causes hassles on its own. These guides are plastic and should be replaced when they break. I turn mine out of steel and have no problems, but you might try and find a guide from another air rifle if you have access to parts. I've used a guide from an Anschutz 335 and it works okay.
<br/>Happy shooting

Spring piston air guns are very finniky. I&#039;ve owned three. A Mendoza 2003 (which I returned due to innacuracy), A Gamo Shadow 1000 (nice gun), and a RWS model 34. The Gamo and the RWS are both good guns but it takes a lot of patience to figure them out. Your gun was rated at 800 ft second, but I&#039;m sure it was with the lightest .22 cal pellet that exists. Most likely 11 grains. The pellets your shooting are likely in the 13 to 15 grain range. This will lower your velocity. If you want to increase your "fps" go to a lighter pellet. Also, spring guns develop a "set" in the piston after about 250 shots. Once this happens your gun will shoot much more consistantly but the "fps" will drop off about 8 to 10 percent. So if your gun is broken in, or "set", and your using light pellets ( 11 to 12 grains) you should be getting about 720 to 740 fps. With mid weight pellets, (12.5 to 13.5 grains) 695 to 715 fps. Heavy pellets, ( 14 to 15 grains) 670 to 690 fps. Very heavy pellets, (15.5 to 16.5 grains) 645 to 665 fps. You get the picture. All air gun companies use ultra light pellets on new guns that aren&#039;t broken in to get the advertized velocity. I think there are even some .22 cal pellets that approach 18 grains. These will hit small game like a club, but will only have muzzle velocities of about 600 fps in a gun thats rated at 800 fps.
<br/> As for accuracy, you just have to experiment with all different types of pellets. Each gun has it&#039;s own favorite. My model 34 loves beeman kodiak pellets, 1 inch groups at 30 yards. If I use a pellet it doesn&#039;t like ( Gammo master point) it wont group at all. Shoots all over the place. Grip is very important too. Light hold, don't hold tightly anywhere. Also, follow through is vital. Pellet guns have a slow lock time. If you dont have a good follow through, you will move the gun before the pellet fully leaves the barrel. Lastly is your scope. I don't use one on my spring guns because I can't ever get them to hold zero for long. No matter how nice of a mount, rings, or scope I use, it will always loose zero eventually. I get sick of sighting them in over and over, so I just don't use them. The recoil on these guns is unique, and unless your willing to spend hundreds on all the accessories to hold the scope true it will only have you yanking the hair out of your head. Hope this helps!

Written on: 27/08/2006

Comment on review by "skycrab99 from Texas on 18th Aug 2005": Thanks for the HONEST review skycrab99; you will find that some people here do not like "negative" comments about their favorite "Mercedes-Benz" rifle. A slight lack of maturity here; "...if they don&#039;t like the message, they &#039;kill&#039; the messenger"!
<br/>I suspect you will find that the pellet(s) and the bore size are DIFFERENT! Check to make sure you have a 0.22 cal and not a 0.25 cal (if such is still made!). Also check the pellet caliber - use a micrometer if you think someone might have inadvertently swapped pellets on you.
<br/>
<br/>Keep practicing your LOOSE grip on the rifle - very different than the 0.22 LR (rimfire) hold you are used to! You have a different animal here, and have to treat it accordingly!
<br/>
<br/>The suggestion about a broken main spring causing your inaccuracies deserves checking, IMHO. One great thing about Diana is their (usual) bulletproof warranty. They may replace the mainspring if the rifle is relatively new. If they suspect "dry firing", however, they may not replace it gratis.
<br/>I hope you get all the kinks straightened out with the Diana 34. It is a good air rifle.
<br/>
<br/>Happy shooting!

Thanks skycrab99 for a honest review. I'm a dedicated .22 rimfire squirrel hunter also, [marlin 883 & mod. 60] that is looking at air rifles for some urbane hunting. The more I read the more I'm convinced that a Benjamin 392 would be more than adequate. The Germans have always built quality, and I won't knock them, but do you really need a Mercedes Benz just to go to the grocery store? and how much is ego? What I need is a quality air rifle in .22 cal. in the 800fps range that will shoot constantly in a 1" circle at 20 yards, period, regradless of price, or fancy wood. Give me the Benjamin 392 anyday.

This is why I recommend against buying an expensive air rifle like the RWS 34 until you get the principles down in shooting a spring pellet rifle. The most important thing is grip and to hold of the sight picture. I would also recommend benching the rifle to set the scope. Do this at a range of 10-15 yards, then 25-35 yards, it takes the human factor out setting the scope then you will see great accuracy.
<br>
<br>The RWS34 benched can shot 1 hole pencil or tack head size groups at 10-15 yards and dimes size 5 shot groups at 25-30 yards. It is an outstanding air rifle once mastered.
<br>
<br>I hope yours has not been destroyed with the dry firing. If it has and they haven't read your review here, RWS has an excellent life time warranty if the rifle has not been abused. They will replace it free of charge. A pellet rifle won't replace a good 22LR rifle, but it can be a quiter alternative for recreationa shootingl, hunting and pest control.
<br>
<br>THE RWS DIANE 34 IS A VERY GOOD AIR RIFLE.
<br>
<br>You seem to be a good shot you just have to learn difference between the 2.

Purchase an accessory called "Beeman Pell Seat". This will allow you to easily seat your pellets in the rifling which will not only improve accuracy but prevent your pellets from falling out. This is an inexpensive item(around $15).

Check for a broken mainspring, in the high power springers, one dry fire is all it can take to break that spring, has the cocking gotten easier than than expected as normal thru the break in? Accurace will suffer badly as a result of levels of velocity from the broken mainspring. Pellets should not fall out, I have never had that experience (I have Beeman and RWS). Be sure they are 22 cal pellets, not 20 cal. One being 5mm and the other 5.5 mm. If the gun is correct, and there are no issues, you should be able to shoot the eye out of a mesquito with practice. Remember to hold the shot on longer also. Firm grip on the forearm, shoulder it tightly, breath, soft squeeze :-)

After having owned the RWS model 24 and a classic Weihrauch Model 35, I ordered an RWS model 34 in .17 caliber for crows that were populating my small Washington homestead.

Written on: 19/06/2005 by mrc01 (3 reviews written)

I've had my RWS 34 Diana Air Rifle in .177 with the RWS model 350 4x32 scope for several years. The model 34 is the entry level to precision adult air rifles. It shoots with about 13-15 ft.lbs. of energy, which is average for a spring piston air rifle. The unique recoil makes it difficult to master. But once mastered and broken in, it is a consistent performer. I shoot 1-2" groups at 100 feet from a sitting position in the field. Obviously, it shoots tighter groups from the bench.

I have the RWS Diana Model 34 and Model 24, both in .22 calibre.
Here in Canada, the law considers the Model 34 a firearm (over 500 feet per second) and as such needs to be registered and the owner licenced.
It will punch a Meisterkueglan pellet clean through both sides of a metal coffee can at 10 yards. My Model 24 in .22 calibre (less than 500 ft per second) packs a wallop but will only dent the can.
The Model 24 requires no licence or registration.

The RWS 34 Diana is a highly accurate spring air rifle. After a 1000+ rounds, the rifle is now very smooth in both the cocking and shooting aspects. The rifle's firing motion is pleasant and rewarding to shoot. A shooting session is something I look forward to after a days of work or to wake up for in the early morning on the weekend.

There's a place in Toronto it's called North Sylva Co. It was about $25.00 per trigger you can call them on friday between 9:00am and 10:00am that's when the guy who does the ordering is in. You can call airgun express at 641-623-3098 but it's cheaper in Canada. Mad Dog also said there was a place called D&L airgun out of B.C but I can't find it at 411.ca I ordered two just to save on shipping and to have a spare.

Once I pick up the triggers they were the wrong one's. Turned out to be t04's instead. So I called airgun express up, they said they send the t05's out to me at no extra charge. untill I read my visa bill and the t05's are £17.50 each instead of £8.91 like the t04's. I wonder why the price difference could it be that they are breaking. This time I took some strong Jb weld and built up the thickness of the trigger before I put it on the gun, I will see if it last. I also have a buddy at work make me one out of brass. Good Luck

Roden Hunter: I did in fact read your review, and on the contrary to what Proboy will have you think I have no argument towards its farness. I'm sure you know that the problem you are experiencing is a warranty issue and I hope it can be sorted out for you quickly so you can continue to enjoy this fine rifle.
<br>
<br>Proboy: For the record; I did not label any of my reviews as "Expert Review". The folks at Review Centre took it upon themselves to do so. I do not consider myself to be an expert in my chosen hobby and simply enjoy shooting, and understanding the mechanics of my many types and brands of airguns. Dianas happen to be my favorite, I have not submitted reviews on all of my guns, nor do I intend to do so. In my initial comment on your review I stated;"write a review that doesn't make you or the gun LOOK foolish", you are the one that began hurling insults and making slanderous statements, and you apperantly want to continue doing so behind my back. Your review was unfare, and missleading with regards to your "Canada doesn't mail firearms" statement. You chose not to help someone having the same problem as you and instead used the oportunity to further attempt to muddy my name. This LOOKS childish and in my opinion may be a good example of your character.

Well, it looks like you've got a problem. I know it would have cost a bit more, but you could have got the same rifle from D&L Airgun out of B.C. They do warranty and nonwarranty repairs on most makes and models of airguns, so they should be able to help you with your broken gun. Just don't take it apart and you should have no problems getting it fixed under warranty. I am a huge Diana fan and I own a P5 Mag, D24, D34 and a D48 and I have had nothing but excellent results with all of them, my 34 has well over 1000 rounds through it and it is shooting hard and accurate with no sign of any problem. I suspect your gun had a problem before you even recieved it and writing a rubbish review on it is not going to get your gun fixed or your money back from an irresponsible dealer. You did make a mistake buying your gun from an American dealer to save a few bucks, think about all the rough handling and inspection that it would have gone through in the post and at customs, it probably got damaged by the dealer or the stress of shipping. Contact John at D&L Airgun, ask if he will do the neccesary warranty work, get it fixed and write a review that doesn't make you or the rifle look foolish. Finally, what makes you think that the recoil broke the trigger? Maybe the gun was missused or dropped? The hole thing sounds a bit fishy to me. Oh, and by the way Canada Post does mail firearms, it's the U.S. dealers that don't like to ship to us.

Flap, cry, whine. Sounds kind of like your review, doesn't it. The problem here is that you could not accept constructive criticism about your review. "Now, Canada doesn't mail firearms so". The way you put it in your review makes it sound like you are saying that Canpost doesn't mail firearms, you didn't mention UPS until now. If this problem is so common, why didn't RWS send you a new trigger free of charge? It is obvious to me that my initial comment on your review deeply offended you and for that I am not sorry, but you have called me names and accused me of affiliation, which by the way is slanderous and outragous. I pointed you in the direction of the only service center that I know of in Canada and you insulted me further for doing so. My bottom line is that I find it hard to believe that anyone could think that the recoil or vibration of the gun in question could cause such a problem, that is my opinion which I also am allowed to have.

There you go flapping again I said United Parcel Service not the postal service but it's obvious your kind of blind or just stupid. Try calling the RWS service centre and see if there are complaints about the trigger and you will hear it for yourself. Its pretty hard to shoot the gun when the trigger broke so soon and the customer service is just as bad as the faulty parts, but I see your pretty quick to tell me where to have it fixed (friend of yours) I can fix this myself. I've been reading some reviews and there are complaints about the vibration when the gun is fired that is what I think broke the trigger not abuse just a cheap poor quality tigger. I wish you could see the trigger to see where it broke and maybe you would quit your whining and crying about someone elses opinion (I am entitled to my own) on a product that is obviously different from yours (calibre and t no.)The only one who should be embarressed is you and all your whining and crying your doing about my opinion.

Canada does mail firearms. I do have my facts straight, and I don't "flap", I speak out, I do have that right, don't I? The recoil from a model 34 is not strong enough to break the "cheap" plastic trigger, nor does it make any sense to say so since there is no relation between recoil and trigger. Even though there are some plastic parts on these guns, they are still very durable. I know because I own four of these "cheap" plastic triggers and have pulled them thousands of times. The reason I called your review foolish is because you didn't even have your gun long enough to burn off the factory lubes, and when it broke you cried and wrote an extremely poor review on a really great rifle. I wrote my review after two weeks of use because thats how long it took me to know that I had bought a powerfull, accurate, trouble free rifle. "kick backs"? What? You must be embarrassed by now! No, I don't. It does however bother the heck out of me when someone writes a poor review like yours because they either don't know how to use the product or they are just expecting way to much from it, or maybe even abusing it, that goes for any product, not just Diana airguns. Congratulations, you joined the club of fools that write premature cry-baby reviews on broken products.

It's your comments that are foolish. I purchased the gun myself and had my friend who travels a lot bring it back. There was no shipping, rough handling, and it wasn't dropped. I was talking about UPS that is how I was told to ship it check your facts before you flap. It was like I said I installed a scope and on the second shot it sound different and the the trigger was broken. The only way to unload it was to take the stock off.It cost $220 and $459 Canadian that a big savings.I ordered a trigger for $9.00 another cheap plastic one I'll try that and see if it breaks again. It seems to me Mad Dog that when someone has a bad review or a problem with a diana product you seem to get kind of bent out of shape. Maybe you are getting kick backs.

It seems that you only had the gun two weeks and you gave it a top review and called anybody elses poor review foolish. I notice that when you reviewed model 48 that one of your bad points was "some plastic" well take a look at the cheap plastic trigger. I talked to a person at the RWS service centre in Closter NJ and they told me that they have had quite a few complaints about the plastic trigger breaking from the recoil. When my new trigger gets here I will try it again. Maybe my review will improve.

Gesh guys if the only problem is a plastic trigger that can be an easy fix. I just got my rws 34 today the trigger looked like metal hummm i better go pull it out of the box. Almost all airguns i looked at had plastic gamo line, winchester such.

Hello Mike,
If you read my comment from the 9th Feb. 2005 I did hit the "off switch" and stopped commenting on this thread. Your request is about 8 months late!LOL

I just picked up the trigger's I ordered and they sent me the wrong ones. The t04 trigger has two adjustment screws, feel's heavier and look's stronger. The t05 trigger has just one adjustment screw a little pin throught were the second adjustment screw was and it weakens the strength of the trigger causing it to break from vibration or recoil. Did you read Roden Hunter review. Now who's review is foolish.

Well boy you sure are good a hurling insults and telling people what they think they are. Like I stated in the comment I wrote over on your review, I pointed you towards the only service center that I know of in Canada and you accused me of being affilliated with the company and further insulted my intelligence. I'm going to be the better man and let these two ugly threads die, because it seems like you're more interested in name calling and making judgement calls than maintaining your factory warranty and having your gun fixed for free. Break a leg boy.

I do feel better, it seems to me that you think your some kind of expert, but you're the only one who thinks so. The only feedback you got was from me and I don't think you could get the truth right if you tried. Maybe you should call UPS (United Parcel Service) in Canada and get it straight, I have. I've never complained about accuracy that was you whining again. I have been shooting and setting up scope for 25 years on all types of guns. I think I can handle this setup. I call the RWS service centre in Closter, NJ and Ohio both told me they have had quite a few complaints about the trigger so quit your whining you foolish little PUP.

I hope you feel better about your premature garbage review now that you've given my realistic truthful review bad feedback. Why don't you spend some time finding all of my reviews and give them all bad ratings? It seems like something you might enjoy doing, seeing as you are so foolish. If you write another review, if and when you get your new trigger in, don't forget to moan about the poor accuracy you get from an impropperly mounted scope. Good luck.

“First, let me say, I am not an experienced rifle...”

First, let me say, I am not an experienced rifle shooter, this is my first, I usually shoot pistols, but wanted a bit more distance and power. I bought a Diana Model 34 from my local shop (in Greece), and headed up into the mountains the next day with targets in hand (but secretly hoping to see a snake or a rat (I didn't though...). Anyway, I set the target up at about ten meters, and started setting the sights. After 8 shots I was happy with my adjustments (it was very close out of the box)… Read Full Review
