Tuning my Diana 34

diana 34

Stock The stock is made of handsome beech wood. Oil evaporates over time and if the rifle has been in a warehouse for a few months, it needs seeing to. As this is my first mid-price range rifle, I used the expertise of the folks at Airgun Depot, and I was not disappointed. I have a good scope on Diana, and I couldn't be happier. The rifle will probably do better with a scope, but if I'm hitting chipmunks at 15 yards with iron sights, it's not all bad. It may sound complicated at first but when you get used to it, it will become your second nature.

You get what you pay for. The decompressed spring move forward and apply pressure on the air inside. Wow I like this - and not being a springer guy to begin with I learned quicker than I expected - takes a small amount of getting used too but now - its great Very accurate and easy to shoot - I like the old school feel in my hands - like the 22s I grew up with when I was a kid so many years ago - my grandad would have loveed this too. Nope, one customer has somehow managed to bend the barrel into the C shape after 15 years of using and Diana not only replaces the damaged barrel but also performs the overall checkup and returns shipping for free. You will not be disappointed! I have had this rifle since August 2010 and have been shooting it in my backyard at spinners and targets at a distance of 20-25 yards. My most recent group was just under 1 inch, with one flier not counted.

Its ideal for me, and with only about 200 rounds through it with open sights, I can tell I will be shooting shotgun primers set in cardboard from 10 yards or so. I hope to make it tough on the starlings when they return to my yard this fall and winter. Since the packaging was undamaged I doubt it happened during transport, in fact I think that the butt plate screw was tightened too much and caused the wood to crack. I thought maybe there was not enough lube in chamber. This gun has a shot extension of 650 yards.

DIANA 34

While the rifle is a little heavy, I found that shooting off-hand was pleasant as it doesn't wave around like a light rifle does. I'm very happy with the Model 34 177. I really enjoy this rifle very much. In the first pic you can see the 2 different mounts. This gun has decades of good reputation and air gunners all over the world simply love it when they witness it awesomeness with their own eyes. After a slight elevation adjustment, I shot 12 out of 15 shots in a dime at 20yds. The price was unbeatable, so I've ordered one in.

After cleaning the tar from all metal parts, I applied the moly paste everywhere except to the outside of the spring. Hello I'm new to this forum, but have been shooting air rifles for over 45 years. It could be my technique in the trigger pull, but the excellent trigger can't be blamed. It is a beautiful rifle and is a lot of fun to shoot. Most people say that one gets what they pay for.

I started shooting at target in my bedroom. Our comprehensive collection has it all, from cocking levels for specific models to compensation pistons and pistol valve bushings. Also, never try to remove the hex looking screws on the scope rail — those do hold the rail to the compression tube. However, after a while, most air rifle enthusiasts inevitably begin focusing more on overall quality, durability and accuracy, rather than muzzle energy or, even less importantly, how fast a rifle can project gimmicky alloy pellets. This shooting iron should last a lifetime with proper care which it gets.

The young lady that assisted me was very knowledgeable and helpful. Still looks pretty decent and quality is evident. My patience has really been tested with some decent and some not so decent air rifles. Check the trigger guard screws as well. I am delighted with the gun but now I have a project on my hands to bring the gun to first class condition. It is not completely silent, it does make quit a big of noise when firing, so it is not a stealth weapon. The fiber optics, on both front and rear sights, has taken a while for me to get used to.

As a result, the pellet is pushed out of the barrel due to the propellant force from compressed air. The bluing of the barrel and receiver is really nice and well made. This is because the majority of airgun shooters simply go to Walmart and buy the pellets they see there. I have targets set up at 28 yards at my house small 1. With the broken spring I was being forced to do it sooner rather than later. One of the big reasons that I chose this rifle was the favorable comments and rating from others.

Diana Model 34 Pellet Rifle

This is what the spring looked like when I took the stock off. It does allow me to practice trigger control, breathing, sight alignment, and so on, just as with my other rifles. Wiped it down, tightened the stock screws, ran a bore-snake through the barrel, put a good scope on it and had it zeroed in at 10 yards in about 8 shots. Before tuning: and after tuning, same pellets, same distance, 5-shot group: Thank you everybody who helped me with this project. I still choose my model 34 as my favorite fun gun, I have owned my 34 for 16-years and have put over 30K pellets thru this gun.

Bottom line: this gun is and hits with serious authority so it has more than enough power to deal with common pests like squirrels, possums, skunks, etc. Maybe that will say it all. I have put a Bushnel rimfire scope on it and it holds well, somtimes its hard to find a good airgun to hold zero hence the barrel is hinged and the scope is on the spring. Initially, the cocking was rough and hard, but after my first tin of 500 pellets, the 34 got easier and smoother to cock. This is the performance I paid for when I got this rifle, and the quality speaks for itself. Single shot action gives you control over the type of pellet you gonna shoot and makes you a better shooter because you know you have to make your first shot count. The pumping action is a little stiff at first but not bad.
