    I dropped  Vortek 12 ft lb kit in my Diana 34p today. This is my first time to work on a springer. I researched all the how to info I could find. Everything seemed to go well when reassembling until I couldn’t get the safety to work. The rifle is assembled but I haven’t cocked it. 

    Any suggestions???

    Need more detail as to “couldn’t get the safety to work”. It’s an auto safety. It only goes to the safe position when you cock the gun.

    The safety can not be manually engaged or disengaged. There is a spring loaded tab attached to the trigger that normally is blocked and unblocked as the safety is actuated. This tab is not aligning correctly. I’ll post pictures tonight. Thanks…

    I assume I’ll need to send the rifle to a gunsmith but it would be great if I didn’t have to.

    Call David Slade at Airgunwerks. 

    If you are in front of the 34 while he’s on the phone, maybe you can be his eyes and together you can figure it out.
    Good thing you haven’t tried to force anything.

    David is a very pleasant man.

    Just my suggestion, My .02

    If this is a T06 trigger, you cannot manually set the safety with the gun uncocked. This is normal. With gun uncocked, when you pull the safety tab, it should move a little bit but not fully. It will not engage the internal safety lever to prevent pulling the trigger. The gun must be cocked in order for the safety to be fully engaged. You said you have not cocked the gun.

    I finally figured it out!!!  I have a broken trigger blade group. The plastic trigger group was  broken where the spring loaded tab was housed. That allowed the tab to over travel the safety and block the trigger. 

    I will need to replace the T05 trigger blade group or remove the offending tab and therefore, inactivate the safety. 

    Inactivating the safety is tempting. My Glock doesn’t have a safety….I’m not sure if a functioning ‘Safety’ on a RWS 34p is any saver than a non-functioning ‘Safety’.  I’m more concerned that a rifle drop would overcome the trigger sear causing an accidental discharge. I believe the best safety for any gun is keeping your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot and not dropping the gun.

    ps..

    As a springer newby, I have learned a lot by making mistakes. I’m a lot more knowledgeable and confident after this experience. It’s been kind of fun….

    My new LGV Master Pro .177 12 ft lb has been shipped from Krale and is scheduled to arrive Wednesday!!! I’m pumped….or should I say cocked?

    I have a hatsan 125 with no safety, cause it broke when i was cleaning it when new, the “metal” on these are made of dried jam… So now i have a 30+ joule haubits without a working safety, i mostly do my shooting on my own, but if you have kids around or shoot at clubs you must fix it

    AG72,

    Thanks for your comment. I do have grandsons that shoot with me. I agree. If Umarex has the part, I’ll replace it.
