The stock, 36 is nicer and usually has some cut checkering.

production date is december 1987 (12 87) this was done by Mayer & Grammelspacher since 1967 / 1968, depending on type of airgun. This was necessary because of new gun laws in Germany per 1/1/1970, which made it important to know if an airgun has been produced before that date or after.
After : No license required for energy less than 7,5 Joules and the F mark became oblogatory. License required for higher energy level.
Air rifles produced before 1970 : no energy limit, no license, but not to exceed original factory level.

I almost bought a 36 for $200 have been regretting not doing so ever since. Dumb mistake

The 34 had a basic beech wood stock, the 36 beech but better grade with butt plate and checkering and the 38 was walnut. I've never seen a 38 in person.

I have a 27 which is a cheaper version that I bought at a gun shop in Germany in the early 80s

They are nice guns and with proper care they will always perform. They are not particularly rare or "collectable" but they don't lose value either.

Check to make sure that the action screws are tight, check regularly.
Lubricate the hinge points of the barrel to action and also the cocking lever hinge points, ( may require you to remove the action from the stock.)
Rebuild kits are available if it starts shooting erratically or loses power.
Never put oil into the air port in the action.
Never dry fire i.e. without a pellet in the chamber.
Never try to shoot the heavier .177 pellets, 10 or 11 grain pellets is about max.

I have a similar one in a Model 45 made in '88, more power and more cocking effort, neither of which is an advantage for me at 68 shooting at paper and white 2ltr pop bottle caps.
Trigger is pretty nice, though longish it is smooth and crisp at the break.
My understanding is the later 80's rifles had the better synthetic seals, but that is only from reading online. And it is a heavy 'man' size rifle, maybe 9ish #?, holds well offhand though Id like something lighter for fun.

Yes they are very well made air rifles indeed. Not particularly rare but I think they will increase in value as time goes on.

Be weary of magnum springs they can damage the piston head.

Just realized this is a double zombie thread originally from 2013.
