“The RWS 34 Diana is a very reliable gun that is worth...”

Written on: 20/05/2004 by Axelphysics (1 review written)

The RWS 34 Diana is a very reliable gun that is worth the money. I have shot well over six thousand rounds and know that it is very accurate arround fifty yards and out of the box is easy to set the sites. Over time if you choose to use a scope you would need to set it regularly do to the crack barrel in addition to needing a shock protected scope. It is a very good gun for pest control and can easily pass in and out of most all critters. Although, it is good for pest control it is not a… Read Full Review

“I wouldn't recommend the RWS 34 Diana or any other air...”

Written on: 28/04/2004 by jskd82 (2 reviews written)

I wouldn't recommend the RWS 34 Diana or any other air gun that is priced really high ($200 and up) because I bought this gun as a combo and I wasn't satisfied with it's accuracy. It would be great one day and then the next it would be shooting a foot high so I returned it, I mean it is a well built gun but for the price I went and bought a .22 Lr and a .22 Mag. A .22 Lr is much more worthed to me because an airgun you have to worry about the spring being weakened if you cock it and leave it… Read Full Review

I believe you fail to understand the good aspects of the sport of airgunning.
<br/>
<br/>Of course a .22LR trumps the energy of a springer. The power source is completely different and should not be comapred! However, just because many airguns are considerably weaker in terms of energy that does not mean they are any less enjoyable.
<br/>
<br/>In fact, many people like the idea of having more of a challenge when hunting. You spray constant rounds and pump your squirrels full of lead with your .22LR, but what is the fun of that? With a springer, you get one shot so marksmanship becomes important.
<br/>
<br/>Another perk with airguns is the cost for ammunition. Pellets are much more economical than rimfire ammunition so this makes plinking more affordable and possible.
<br/>
<br/>.22LR bullets also go supersonic, meaning they make a loud "crack" and arouse the concerns of neighbors/police.
<br/>
<br/>Please take my opinions with a grain of salt. I do not personally believe that having great firepower and easy kills neccessarily make a hunting experience "better."
<br/>
<br/>People take great pride and joy with pellet guns. Perhaps if you took more time to understand why this is the case, you might not be so cynical.

I don't agree with your review - sure a 22LR is more powerful and able to shoot a longer range but the challenge of shooting small game with an air rifle is much higher and how can you recommend a gamo because they are cheaper - have you owned one of these also?

What you talking bout willis i bought a new nickel finish 22lr and haven't tried it out yet. I like pellet guns fun and not very much money in the case of RWS diana. Im sure a German made rimfire is twice as much money wise i say get one of each. Heck its only money save up from buying those cigarettes at 711 and you got a new rifle buddy.

I don't understand why people like this even bother with any kind of rifle, weather it is an airgun, or a rimfire. This person is obviously not experienced with airguns or rimfire weapons. I wish this type of person would leave the reviewing to the people who actually know what they are talking about.

The RWS 34 Diana is Very accurate- could succesfuly pot a coke can hanging from a tree at about 35 yards while standing many times over and now use coins as targets.
Powerfull enough to make very significant alterations to the shape of any coin, makes 1/4 inch holes in concrete walls but dissapointed me in not going through a car tyre but embedding the pellet in.

Written on: 13/04/2004 by mcduff1 (1 review written)

The RWS 34 Diana gun lives up to all the comments I have read, It is very accurate with the iron sites at 30 - 40 yds. I am shooting a 3" circle at 35 yds. I am sure that with a scope I can bring that down a lot. When I set out to buy an air rifle I was going to buy the RWS 95 model, but once I compared the two side by side, the 95 model seem to be a little cheaper made. The Diana cost a little more but is a better built gun. One thing I recommend is getting the RWS shooter's kit(220 1125) to… Read Full Review

The RWS 34 Diana gun packs a lot of power for the money, it is a great deal. It is very accurate, after sighting it in with the 4x32 RWS scope that came with the gun as a combo, I shot 4 pellets at 33 yards and all of them were touching each other, now that's what I call accurate and consistant. Make sure to get the adjustable scope rail so that you don't have to shim it yourself. Gun packs quite a bit of kick so that's also something iv'e got to get used to. The trigger is also something that… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/01/2004 by Steve4887 (8 reviews written)

My Model 34 has given me 10 years of reliable service. It is a plain gun that is accurate and powerful. After a few thousand rounds, it shoots smoothly. My favorite activity with my 34 is sinking soft drink cans floating in my pond. The distance is 70 yards and once I get the range, I rarely miss. I use RWS Superdomes (.177). The barrel alignment is precise. The gun has the heft and feel of a well made wood and steel rifle. I expect many more years of fun with my RWS 34 carbine… Read Full Review

When I first got bit by the "airgun bug" I found that as soon as I had an extra $150 to $250 dollars, I would buy a new airgun. Needless to say I soon found I had some 10 or so airguns that fell into that price range. These included several BSA, Beeman, RWS, a Gamo and a handful of Chinese Clones of German and British models. I found the RWS-43 to be near the top when it came to quality of construction and accuracy. Where it fell behind a few others was it's heavy weight and length. I also… Read Full Review

My gun is a Diana model 34 'S'.
It is the same gun underneath but has a wallnut stock, a short 4/5" barrel with a silencer on the end and a high quality wide angle scope.
My sister dropped mine (is there any way to remove medium depth scratches without sanding down the stock?) but is is still very nice looking.
It came out of its RWS case very accurate but with a faulty scope that didnt zoom more than 3x of the 9x it was supposed to (soon got that sent back).
Ive shot about 1000 rounds and that… Read Full Review

It is a silencer, a stainless steel (or aluminium, it says it is steel but is very light for steel!) tube with baffles inside it and an end cap.
<br>
<br>A silencer! It deadens the expelled air from the muzzle, they are not legal in the US though I'm afraid. If you are in the UK then you can buy them from gun shops or online, I know JSR Ramsbottom stocks red tip silencers that are very good!

I found my RWS 34 Diana which is now 8 yrs old to be quite accurate right out of the box. Mine has all metal sightsand i find it handles very well withgood balance. Excellent rifle for the price as compared to other entrylevel air rifles as the BSA SuperSport.Did have to replace the mainspring recently, but a few accidental dryfires (pellet must have fallen out) did not help i guess. So overall if you are lookingfor a 12-13fpe air rifle in the price range of around $200 and ofgerman quality the… Read Full Review

The commemrative version is better built, but mine had a less than perfect mating of barrel to receiver which creates it's own problems in scope adjustment. I also have pulverised 2 Nikko Sterling 4-12x40 platinum scopes through it's twangy recoil. Looking forward to selling it.

After shooting over 750 rounds so far I'm very impressed with this rifle. I would like to see better sights such as the tru-glo on the GAMO guns. Also for a gun of this quality would like to see a butt-plate. However it's marketed as a no frills work-horse and it fits this description to a tee.

In my opinion the RWS 34 is the best rifle in the world with a perfect combination of speed and accuracy. Also there's no other rifle with a 19" barrel @ 1000 fps (can anyone prove that?). Rifles like rws 48, or a beeman crow are extremely powerful as I've shot those too. The pellets might travel a little further from such rifles, but around a 30 yard range, the accuracy which a rws 34 produces, no other rifle in the world can compete. Usually for sportsmen, most of their targets are around 30… Read Full Review

You Stated:
<br>"but around a 30 yard range, the accuracy which a rws 34 produces, no other rifle in the world can compete"
<br>I take it you have limited experience with what else is out there. I own 2 RWS 34s as well as several other RWS models "36 and 54" along with misc. airguns ranging from $200 to $3500. The 34 is accurate compaired to airguns in it's price range but your claim is far from realistic. Also I suggest you invest in a chronograph. You will find few airguns produce the FPS that they claim in thier manufacturer specs. Remember, they want their guns to sell. To get 1,000 fps you will need to shoot some of the lightest pellets on the market. These pellets would be much to light for "real world" shooting other than very short range target/hunting. With typical weight pellets in the 7 to 8 gr. range 900 fps will be what you should expect at best.

You don't have to agree with the comment, but facts are facts. The RWS is a great value, but saying it is the best airgun in the world just is not realistic. If "Best" were referring to accuracy, then why do you never see this gun being used by top competitors in Field Target. There are other airguns out there that are consistently more accurate which is why they are used. If "Best" is referring to power, there are many airguns out there offering much higher Chrony readings, simple fact. If "Best" is referring to cosmetics ..... well everyone has their own idea of what looks best, so there is no arguing with that. To say you can not get a better airgun than the RWS 34 is not being realistic.

I don't know how many 34/36 series RWS rifles I have shot...they just generally get no more than 13 or so ft-lbs in .177. Firing cycle is managably rough and definitely shouldn't be FAC force fed (unless in .22 at 13-14 ft-lbs). I feel for this rifle, a .22 caliber with a shorter carbine style barrel would probably be optimum. The .177 gun is relatively accurate as it does about 2-2.5" at 50 yards fairly consistently and superdome pellets as well as Beeman ram-jet pellets is what it prefers on… Read Full Review
