The last time they ran out it popped back up in a day or two, didn't it?
Yes, but ...

I think there's been 3 separate "incarnations" of this deal. First time, OP was tulsatime, in mid-Aug18. Second, I don't recall who OP'd, was in mid-Oct18. Third, this one, (started) on 10Jan19. Each time, as I recall, it would go out-of-stock after a week or two; then be available after 1-2 days; then repeat that two-step once or twice.

For this deal: 10Jan-22Jan avail, 23Jan OOS, 24-29Jan avail, 30Jan OOS, 31Jan-4Feb avail, 5Feb OOS ... "He's dead, Jim."

... Until the next time? ...

No sweet German airgun for me. I traveled for work this week and expected to find my airgun waiting for me when I got home yesterday, but no dice (order placed Feb 1). I called Cabela's again this morning, got forwarded to the drop ship department, and found out that the item was out of stock, so the manufacturer cancelled the order, but they didn't contact Cabelas to tell them, so Cabelas didn't tell me. So I get a refund and no RWS. They are going to send me a $25 gift card for my troubles, which is the only reason I will still even consider buying anything from them in the future.

It seems that Cabela's and Umarex were able to create some good potential future customers with this deal, but unfortunately I'm less likely to buy anything from them now. Which is a shame, because I didn't have anything against Umarex before and I've always wanted an RWS, but now when I'm looking to spend that kind of money on an air rifle I'll be looking at one of the many other great options out there. And that's likely to be pretty soon, because GTA has convinced me that I should treat myself to a higher quality springer/gas ram rifle.

Adam;

I am really sorry that that happened, corporate businesses have sometimes no brains involved in the operations. It's all this philosophy of having "Average Chickens" in the workforce and planning for that.
I would also be mad at the lack of information, after all, computers are supposed to help us with the right information at the right time, but instead it seems that it has worked the other way around. It has made the "average chicken", less than average.

Granted I am very biased, but do take a look at the DIANA 430L from AoA, it is a wooden stocked rifle, small, nimble and elegant, it comes with a ZR Mount and a usable scope (not the greatest scope, but good enough). All for $300:

At the end of the day I did get a free $25 gift card so I guess I can't complain too much. All I'm out is a little time and my shattered dreams of buying a nice German air rifle for a pittance.

I'm moving to NC in a month so I probably won't buy my nice rifle until after then, but when I do I'll likely start one of those what should I buy threads. I'm leaning toward something pre-tuned in .22 right now.

It stinks Cabelas did not notify you.  I don't get it.  Cabelas was leaving you hanging and were waiting for you to make contact to tell you it was out of stock or to request a refund?  It sounds like they don't have a good process in place to communicate issues to the consumer, and also a way to check for items out of stock from the drop shipper, or any way for them to check Umarex's inventory so they would stop accepting orders.  Pretty sad because all they had to do really is send you an email.

Well at least you can save $25 on your next purchase from them, or on a 34P next time they are in stock.  And if the 34P goes on sale again you will be getting the lowest price on the planet  :)

Adam, similar episode with Cabela's, They had the RWS 34 striker combo .22 cal on sale for $229. Ordered and waited, finally called and asked where the tracking # was. Cust service told me that because it was being direct shipped from the mfg there was no tracking #.  After 2 calls and 2 e-mails getting the same answer (even when I told them that I did get a tracking # on the 34P .177) I e-mailed a different department (shipping & tracking). They got back to me in less than an hour and told me that the Mfg was out of stock   and it won't be available for 6 weeks. I called Cust service back (always very nice) and asked if they would  substitute the RWS 34P striker combo .22 Cal for $229 and they were willing to do that, I was happy with that but someone should have noticed that it was out of stock???
I won't hesitate to buy from Cabela's again, I  got 2 great German springers for a great price. They are now my favorite rifle's.

John, does your 34P seem louder than your wood-stocked versions (due to hollow stock vibration)?

Sorry for the delay Randy, finally got a chance to compare the 34P with the 34 classic (wood). I don't know how accurate my Android decibel app is, but the P reads 80.5 Db, the Wood 80.4 Db, hardly any difference. Surprisingly, the P is a bit harder to cock, perhaps due to being newer with fewer rounds thru it.

This DOES look like a great value.  If anyone owns this - can you answer the following questions:

1.  Is the fake moderator at the end of the barrel made of metal or plastic?

2.  Is the piece that connects the cocking rod to the cocking linkage made of metal or plastic?

From the pictures, it looks like these parts are plastic.  While the moderator may be fine, I'd have concerns about the other piece being made of plastic (or even pot metal)

Thanks!

EDIT:  I just caught that this is 43" long.  I was thinking this was quite a bit smaller.  I now have the willpower to easily resist this deal!   ;D

The photo showing a moderator is the wrong photo (of a 34 compact, not the 34P). The one shipped is an all metal barrel. I don't see any plastic in the cocking arm or assy.

hi guys. received this gun with a help of  superchikn. thank you my friend very much!
 gun finish is perfect and after crosmans its completly different world!

bad thing is that during shipping somebody (idiot) dropped the box and the gun fell in the box with iron sight (rear) made a hole in box and it lost the screw which controls verticality. the screw with numbers 1 2 3 4 5 ....

if anyone of you have it and dont use it please give it to me. i wanted the gun for my father and little brother to learn shooting with open sights.

happy to be member of this forum. thanks everyone!
