The 34 classic is a fine rifle Numrich gun parts is selling new ones for 199.https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/1828970
I hunt with .177 springers a lot, and have for a couple decades. Modest powered ones at that. I don't find the .22 to be of any advantage at "accurate" springer power levels. Although if you are power hungry, an RWS48 in .22 slightly detuned is a killer hunting gun, and very easy to fit a sling to. I have high power PCPs in .22 and almost never hunt with them. I prefer the Weihrauchs over the Diana/RWS mainly for the trigger, but the RWS would be a fine rifle and a nice upgrade over the Ruger. The Weihrauchs would be a little more of an upgrade and their price reflects that.
Order confirmed, one rws 34 in .177 should ship out in the morning. Now for the nect round of questions lol.Is a hawke vantage scope a good match for this rifle? Hopefully so as i have a couple of homeless ones.If so what mount is recommended?What pellets , if any, are known to shoot well in these?Looking for a place to start lol.What should be looked over , adjusted, etc. When it arrives?Thank yall for helping me spend my money !
