What caliber did you get? I had one in .22 and can tell you about it.

If you want long range I'd look into a PCP instead.

Well, mine shot 665fps with 5.52 JSB Exacts and shot them the most accurately. I tried many many kinds of pellets. If I remember correctly she also shot RWS Meisterkugeln about 700fps and that shot very accurately too. I pretty much stuck with the 5.52 Exacts since I got the best accuracy from them. I wouldn't shoot 5.51 Exacts because the 5.52 fit kind of loose in there.

You will need a drooper mount if you intend to put a scope on it. I purchased my custom drooper mount from Mac1. Some people will tell you to bend the barrel but I'm not one of them, LOL.

The shot cycle is a little harsh. I would get a tune kit for it or send it off to a tuner and let him do it. Your scope will love you for it. Smile

If you decide you want to shoot with the factory open sights the rear sight has 4 different shapes you can use by rotating the rear sight.

It's a decent springer for the money. I sold mine and went PCP. It costs more but everything is better, IMO.

Hope that helped.

I own a 34 and it shoots great. It is mainly used to shoot starlings from about 30 to 40 yrds. I do have a scope for it but have not mounted it yet.

yes sir, let me offer you some encouragement, by the time you read this you should have your gun in hand, I also have a .22 mod 34.

when I first got it I hated it! I could not get it to group, I hated it so much that I held it over the trash can and shook with anger, I decided to sell it rather than trash it.

Then I lent it to a friend who knew nothing about guns, he shot the piss out of it and about a week or two later he broke it out while I was there and we shot, it was so smooth, I hit everything I aimed at (cleanly) he said he shot all the pellets I gave him= about 1500-2000
long story short....its now my son's and one of my best (go to guns) I still shoot it offten and I always shoot heavy crosmans..good luck and don't get dissapointed during the break in period.
