Hey guys and gals, should be getting my pal in the next little while and I'm looking for some reviews and feelings on the rws diana 34's. I have a diana 240 classic and it is a great gun. Tried shooting a friends stoeger x10 in 177 and the thing recoils like a mule, takes a bit to find it's sweet spot and to start shooting groups. Have been bench shooting the stoeger it seems the only way to settle it down. What I'm looking to find out is if the 34 is going to be the same way. Going back to my low powered 240 is a dream it is so smooth, I know the 240 is far less powerful, so I would like to find out what a 34 shoots like, I know the stoeger is a much cheaper gun and can expect a far nicer gun from diana. Any feed back would be great, tell me your story with a 34. Thanks Scott

Hi

i'm going to try making you avoid the same mistake i did, get my PAL and buy something other then the 34 i wanted because of money, the venture ended up costing more then if i had put the money on the 34 in the first place, and i didn't talk about the frustration i went thru yet :evil:

if money is not an issue, then go for the gold and buy either an HW98 or Walther LVG, if you're not ready to spend that kind of money, then absolutely go for a 34, at the price they sell, there is no better alternative, you already own a Diana, so you should already be aware of its quality, buying a cheapo rifle expecting the same just doesn't add up, trust me

now for shooting a 34, i'm not going to lie to you, it is a bit different and requires a slightly different hold, but shoots like a dream, the T06 trigger is just incredible, mine pulled at 8.6 ounces out of the box, having a trigger like that makes you concentrate on shooting technique, and not trigger control

don't worry too much about recoil, in fact my 34 kicks less then my PAL airhawk, they kick because they use a big spring to attain PAL speeds, its just the nature of the beast, maybe a Diana 48 could lessen that, but again, expensive

get the 34....and don't look back :D

The 34 is a long gun that is fairly heavy, it shoots very well once you get to know it. I don't like the plastic sights they come with now. I would get it in .22, I take rabbits easily with mine.

Regards,

Matt

They are great work horse guns. After a reasonable wear in period they settle right down and are great accurate shooters.
