PLEASE START A NEW THREAD. THIS IS REALLY TOO OLD.

THANKS, THE MGMT.


I am new to air rifles and wanting to purchase a new rifle. I have been reading a lot about the new Nitro piston and was wandering if that is the way to go. I almost had myself talked into buying a RWS 34 with the new T06 trigger, but was wandering if I should go the Nitro piston route instead. Any help would be appreciated.

What are you loooking for in an air rifle.

Accuracy
Reliability
Power
Quality
Simplicity
Durability
Economy
Available upgrades

Hunting
Plinking
Target

The 34 will give you all of this. And your children as well when you are done with it.

The Nitro. Some of the above, but not all. And you will probably be buying your children something else.

Like a 34.

There is a good solid reason why the Diana 34 is considered THE entry level airgun.

Try this, if you can, cock and hold a 34. Do the same with a Nitro. Look them over good. Fit and finish, balance, FEEL.

The answer will bew right there in your hands.

Oh, one more thing. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with either gun, try selling the Nirto and see what you can get.

You will have no trouble finding a home for the 34.

Nitros seem to be good (assume you are talking Crosman?) but the 34 is old school at about its best.

one Crosman made in China Titan GP in .22 cal and ALL M34's in .177, and .22 cal made in Germany

the Titan GP in .22 cal from Wally World is $150.00 plus .07 tax and not a bad air rifle but make that "1 stike" because it is a cheap air rifle, did not say a bad one!!!

the M34 in .177 or .22 cal is a $200.00 AIR RIFLE, see CAPS letters???

better quality, better MOD's avaliable (sorry) you cannot modify the Titan, make that "2 stikes"

resale value is still $200.00 for the Model 34 even if you use it 1 day or 1 year

if the spring in the M34 "EVER", (breaks, cants, or weakens) and goes bad, it is a $20.00 replacement but not the same story for the Titan, "3 stikes"

you are "OUT" with 3 strkes'

the difference between the Titan GP ($150.00) and the Diana M34 ($200.00) is $50.00

do YOU want to gamble!!!, it's your money

warren

and remember "it's 30% the gun and 70% the shooter"

Thanks for all the helpful insite. Looks like I will be ordering an M34 in .22 Any advice for which pellets to try. I will mainly be hunting squirrels and birds in my back yard and plinking at some targets and tin cans.

Would be a pellet sampler. would be best to call straight shooters and see if they have a .22 34, order the sampler with the rifle.

BTW they are offering free shipping through the 20th i believe

Realize that how ever the gun shoots out of the box it will not settle in untill you have run at least 1000 pellets through it. Take a breath, that's only 2 tins. And trust me, you will enjoy every one, and will be more and more impressed as you go. With yourself and the gun. Its a win/win situation.

PS Warren forgot to mention that there have been 250,000 34s produced since they were first brought out. 250,000! And there's a good reason for that.

That's not like him. You're welcome, Warren.

With whom ever you purchase a M34 that it has the new TO6 trigger.
