Good balance, good power in .177, accurate.
None as long as you use it within its limits.
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 groups.
I've found my 34 to be a bit hold sensitive so make sure when you shoot it, you practice good springer airgun shooting technique and keep the hold consistent for best accuracy.
I've fitted mine with a cheap scope (springer rated) and an RWS one piece mount and it does fine with this.
The gun does not have as much twang as other lower end springers I've shot. A nice solid 'thump' is all you hear and very little vibration.
With a bit of work, you can easily add a buttpad and muzzle brake to this gun and have a nice looking airgun.
