Its actually a pretty good price.... about $100-150 off of most online stores.

I hear you! Serious overkill for me too (I also am looking for a 34). Note that this 48 model is a side cocker instead of the up and down break barrel design of the 34 and requires a 39 pound force to cock versus the 34's 32 or so. Probably one of the highest powered air rifles available especially with the 22 caliber pellet maxing out at 1000 ft/sec with certain pellets.

My favorite right now in the 34 series is the Meisterschutze Compact. Thanks for sharing and triggering my RWS alert!

Here is a hint if you are interested in a refurbed RWS. Umarex has a few of the 350 magnums they will sell for $233 right now. The part number is 2102009r and you will have to call UmarexUsa to get the deal. They sell out of these quickly so YMMV. They don't have any 34s since CHRISTmas wiped out their stocks but it will save you some bucks going refurbed. Free shipping too.

A hunting and pest elimination gun. I'm a target shooter - this gun is so-so for that purpose. Not worth it even at this - nice - price.

Is it really worth it? It's over five times what I paid for my air rifle. What range would you expect to be able to hit a 2" diameter target? (assuming the shooter is not the limiting factor)

I'm able to hit 2" groups out to about 50 yards with my cheap gamo + a $20 scope. It has enough power to kill a coyote (with damn near perfect placement) at 30 yards. I know because I had to deal with the dead coyote. I wish he would have ran off before dieing.
