    For under $300 x2 on the RWS 34. Also look at the Walther Terrus.

    The RWS34 is an excellent choice, and could recently be purchased for about $180 Walmart. 

    You can get an hw50 here for less than $300 delivered.

    Is there any difference between a Diana or Umarex RWS, I’m seeing both and am a bit confused. Is RWS the maker and the other two retailers for the gun?

    Diana and RWS are the same – but just to make it more confusing, they were also called Gecado and Original.

    But going with Diana / RWS, you know you are buying a quality AR which will you will pass on to your kids

    If you're interested in a .177 RWS 34, I bought one of those on the Walmart special recently….but I really just didn't need another gun.  PM me.

    Any suggestions on ways to make it quieter or is it quiet enough for backyard shootin without irritating neighbors?

      Most of the noise from a springer is mechanical due to the piston slamming home. That noise can be reduced by going to a 12fpe spring which is still sufficient for small game out to about 40 yards. I have a .22 Diana 34 full power Vortek spring. It's fairly quiet but nothing like a PCP.

    I have RWS 34's both 177 n 22. Bought the 177 in 93 still takes game out to 35-45yrds depending on game. 22 bought in 08, last kill was last year bagged a bunny @ 55yrds, dropped him on the spot . In my opinion RWS makes legit rifles, I don't know how the quality or control is now . Buy nitro-piston, better than spring, you can leave it cocked longer n recoil is less . You might want to go PCP, I recently bought a Hatsan Flash it was $304 from PA n Diana stormrider . Get the Flash, not happy with the Diana (cheap make). The pump will run you about $150 depending on model. Save up, if your budget is  $300 n some change another $100 n you can get a nice set up. You won't be disappointed. The flash has semi shrouded barrel, is back yard friendly. Not like stormrider, which is pretty loud .

    Best is the Swarm, not because it is the best springer, but because it has a reliable magazine.  Single shot for hunting is a joke.  Fumbling with a pellet while wounded game scurries out of sight is un ethical.

    Lots of people hunt with single shot springers. I've taken hundreds of squirrels with my Diana 34. I don't fumble for pellets, I use a pellet pen and can cock, reload, close the barrel and shoulder the gun in 7 seconds. The swarm is faster, but wounded game can get out of sight quickly no matter what gun you are using and hitting the kill zone on a moving animal ain't easy if you can even hit it at all.
