I still see grease; causing an odd-looking reflection pattern/color from the photography lighting-and the subject of the thread was Diana 34 classic vs 34 EMS... And as a machinist; I can tell you that the crisp edge breaks on the breech block can be considered a mark of quality....That's what I seen, grease.Lok at picture 9 here at the breechLooks like grease to me...
Let's not get to far off track here; for the OP's sake

I forgot the photo of baby slug target (12.5gr.) at 25 yards. They were tighter grouping in the 880fps range. Maybe crank up the speed for those big 38 grain slugs and see if groups tighten up.

Your post brings up another thing I see for me is. With the cphp I didn't not need hold over there pretty flat shooting , BUT. Other pellets of the same weight I do need some. I kinda wonder if the howelled point adds some lift ? Only pellets I got left handy not crosman are gamo rockets and they shoot lower by a good inch or more. But are still 14 grain
Yes. Sold in Germany they are restricted.7. 5 joules.
But you can ask for an stronger spring. Export spring.
Donno if they will install it for you.
Or just sell the spring along with the rifle.
My condolences and prayers to you, Cole. Sorry for your loss.

If you rotate the scope so it's plumb and get it zero'd it should work for now. As soon as you make an adjustment it will be off again. Just hard luck.
I just had the chance to test some slugs myself. I grabbed my plain Jane Benjamin Maximus.177 and tested out some NSA 12.5 gr. Slugs. At 25 yards I sighted in (see photo) wasn't trying for best group just casual shoot. Second group was close to POI so stretched out to 52 yards (already had targets there) after shooting some clay. Unfortunately at about 40 yards the slugs started to do the "funky chicken " dance, diving down and right, only one of five shots landing on target. My gun isn't regulated, shots were in the 730's and rose to the 880's. Had chrony issues arise, but I think by the time I started shooting at 50 yards my velocity dropped down to the mid 700's again. I'll need to do more testing.

Don't be too discouraged-you are shooting some mighty fine groups there!! With time and practice; you may still chase down the elusive single hole...
Dunno what to say about the pellets; I personally wouldn't sand them-to much risk of throwing weights off or knocking the skirt out-of-square... Maybe try a seating tool with a ball end to smooth the skirts out when you load them?
Aren't Schneider's 48's of the atrocious 7.5 J German power level? When I've checked other springers there in the past, they have been.

Ahh the joy of split groups. The bane of any target shooter. My usual culprit is inconsistent trigger control. With springers shoulder pressure or padding. I got split groups when my sweat shirt would occasionally double over under the the butt pad. Doesn't take much with a springer, but it's usually something the shooter is doing. You'll figure it out."Split groups"-exactly!!
Shoulder pressure-yep; that could be it... If I do not keep firm enough pressure into my shoulder; stuff goes to heck-only wearing a thin T-shirt here in the summer; but keep having a muscle twitch right under the dang buttpad which doubtless can have the same effect... Still learning trigger control; getting (and keeping) my firing sequence straight... Breathe; let off half breath while aiming-stabilize sight picture-squeeze off the second stage while holding things steady; keep (! this is what I think I was doing) shoulder pressure even in the follow-through...
I'll figure it out
