Simple question...



Log in to see fewer ads
If you had $300 dollars what air rifle would you buy? Optics would be a plus but I don't mind shooting iron sights. I'm not worried about cocking effort so spring or pump is cool. Thanks for the help!

Bet the money on the Packers and then get an RWS 54-22.

What are you using the rifle for? If target shooting the Daisy 853/753, or save another $150 and find a good used FWB300, RWS75, or Walther LGM.

If you are interested in getting a break action spring gun you might want to consider the extensive RWS line. I have had a Diana model 34 in .177 for years and have enjoyed hunting rats, pigeons and plinking with the open sights. It's very accurate and powerful and, as you can see from the RWS web site, it comes in many variations. These days, in Canada, the model 34 pretty well hits the $300 mark. In the US you can probably do a bit better price wise. Also, for those of us getting a bit tired of Chinese products, the RWS line is made in Germany. Now that the old eyes are getting a bit tired I've trying to find a suitable scope to mount on it.

I have the Daisy 753, 853 and FWB 300S and ditto on the above. The Daisy's are light but accurate, single pump pneumatic, no recoil. The trigger is awful but fixable. The FWB 300S is a heavy match rifle and you just have to shoot it to believe how accurate it is. I've shot a 10 meter five shot group from prone with mine that was the size of a single pellet.

RWS (Diana) Model 34 Pro Compact

Probably a clearance sale.
Either way ... looks like a very good deal.
Even without a scope.

About the scope, most likely an inexpensive one .... read: Chinese.
But, if it was part of an RWS package ... functional at the very least.
34 Classic Prof. Compact

How about one of these?

I have a couple of friends who bought these, and they're really nice air rifles. Well within your price range, too.

RWS/Diana recently released rifles with their T06 trigger group... So, it seems a number of vendors are selling off the T05 triggered Model 34s (particularly the Pros) at a discount.

I think the best price is at Airguns of Arizona:
https://www.airgunsofarizona.com/rws.html (about halfway down)

I bought one of these from them recently from AoA.

ed: I should add here that they tacked on ~$20USD for shipping/handling. However, included in that was that they appear to have checked the gun over and Chrony-ed it before it left.

I also missed the post about scopes. The RWS scope that came on the 34 Pro is nice, but I think you'd be better served to spend a little extra cash and upgrade it. I'd suggest getting a Leapers mount to compensate for the rather dismal scope rail/stops on RWS rifles (and any barrel droop). I put a Leapers 3-9x32AO scope on my 34 Pro and I'm pretty happy with it.
