    Every time someone asks for a good accurate reliable Springer the RWS-34 comes up as a recommendation. There is obviously lots of love out there for the model. I have never been a fan, by looks only, as I have never had one. 

    The Pro Compact however, catches my eye and would like first hand thoughts on it. Is it only available in .177? 

    Thanks!

    Great little gun with some TLC !

    The only thing I didn't like is that giant heavy muzzle break and it was replaced with a 6 inch from ARH. It was bone dry inside when I got it also but like I said with some love it was a very accurate and consistent shooter.

    The TO6 trigger is very good too.

    When they first became available it was offered in .22 but in short supply and wood stock only…

    Thanks James. I like wood in my guns just fine. I have 2 Springers in .177 and frankly don't want another. The HW30 and the LGV are both good at what they do. May consider the .177 if I sell the LGV and replace it with a .22 LGV just like it. 

    Did you have to change the spring for a kit like a Vortek? 

    Thanks again.

    I've used a .22 34 carbine and enjoyed it very much. The owner had taken the barrel down to 10" and used the HONKING large 12ounce muzzle break at first then switched to a solid delron MB of equal diameter to the original. Cocking was still very easy, accuracy outstanding and the carbine length  just really made it shoulder well.

      Also except for age effecting things for me these days I also like the RWS 48/54 with an 8" sleeved barrel.

    Right spot and time these day's you could get a NIB 34 for under $200 , chop it professionally & add MB ( compact pro MB used to be $40 but IS 12oz ) and your still under $300 and the T06 trigger while different is as good as your other 2.

     There all fun.

    As spysir mentioned buy a 34 classic and have the barrel cut down and recrowned, then install one of these. I removed the sights on my classic and installed one, 4 oz. IIRC. It comes with two shims, the thin one was just about perfect for my barrel.

    Thanks for all the input guys. 

    So, suppose I actually wanted to do this. How does one go about it? Cutting and te-crowning that is. I have zero clue on this stuff. Just barely became brave enough to change springs. ?

    I’d have a gunsmith do it. Although I know guys who have cut high power rifle barrels off with a saw and use a crowning kit for a drill with good results.

    I didn't think of this when I made my post above but my 34 is choked near the end of the barrel. I don't know how cutting it off would affect accuracy, but it's something to consider.

    Thanks. Will consider all options. Right now I’m not too crazy about the cutting barrel deal. Ultimately I’m in search of a good quality .22 Springer with good accuracy. Really like the LGV platform, but having a hard time finding a .22 Master Pro.

    Christian, 

    Krale has a LGV .22 in stock? It’s a 17 ftlb Pro Sport.

    Just looked. The .22 not in stock, unless I’m doing something wrong. Thanks for looking out though. Appreciate it.

    The RWS 34 is a great rifle.  The TO-6 trigger is great.  They are, in my opinion the easiest rifle to take apart, rebuild, etc. and I don't use a spring compressor on them.  I would rather take down a 34 than my TX200 which everyone says the TX is the easiest to take down.  They do benefit from a spring kit like a Vortex.  An HW seems to break in after 1500 pellets and turn into a sweet heart.  A 34 never seems to break in as well as an HW. Put a Vortek kit in it and it will instantly be better.  If this is, I believe it is, the model that comes with the RWS scope then go ahead and get another scope as the one that comes with it will last a week, maybe.
