I was offered what appeared to be a practically new RWS mocel 34 in 177 caliber for $150. Is this a decent price? I could see no wear or scratches what so ever.

The link below is to an airgun site that I have purchased from in the past. They list the gun for $ 199.00 new as does Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas has it for $ 259.00 with a 4x32mm RWS scope. If it is nearly new you are getting a pretty good discount of 25%. RWS makes good stuff and Straightshooters has sold me one air rifle and one pistol that I have been very happy with.

Sounds good to me! If it is in good condition. Even if you are suspicious of the internals but the external looks good I would buy it. I sent mine back to RWS about five years ago and they replaced every internal friction bearing part. I know because I marked all the old worn parts before I sent it off. I got it back with an invoice of parts replaced and a total cost of $0.00!!! They even paid return shipping.

Sounds like they may get to sell it to me. I thought it might be a good price but I didnt know where to check.

Did you get it? Do you like it?' Be sure and get good pellets to use in it, not cheapo pellets at Wal-Mart. Academy, Bass Pro, Cabelas, and Straighshooters.com all have good pellets. I also have found that you should try several types of pellets and find out which one is accurate and stick with it. I can change the point of impact on my rifle, or pistol by over 2" at 10 meters using different pellet styles and weights. And this is in a gun that shoots one hole match sized groups.
