I recently bought a rws 34 and love it it came with a
scope and I sighted it in and it shot dead
accurate for a while. then one day it wasn't
hitting the target anymore. and I've had to
sight it in multiple times. Im convinced its the scope
Any reccomandations for a good scope for a pellet
Rifle?

Just about any 2 - 4 power scope should be good.

For the price, Tasco and Bushnell are hard to beat

BSA makes some decent entry-level scopes and reflex sights.

RWS 34 is a sweet rifle!
I strongly suggest cleaning the lead fouling from the barrel▬that's what is likely causing the decrease in accuracy, IMO

Spring piston air guns with their sharp forward recoil are VERY hard on scopes. More so than many heavy centerfire rifles, because most scopes aren't designed to handle the forward recoil. Look for scopes that are airgun rated. They will hold zero and not come apart on you.

I have developed a real fondness for Leapers "Accushot" series. They're a really good scope and are airgun rated. I'm using them on several of my centerfire rifles actually. They're better than scopes costing 3 times the money.

BTW, there are gun forums for these posts rather than putting them in disaster preparedness general. :)

I have BSA Cat's Eye scopes on my Ruger 10/22 and 77/44 and love 'em!

Make sure the scope is airgun rated. Air Rifles recoil kicks forward, not to the rear like cartridge rifles do. I killed a brand new Leupold 6.5-20x40mm with eighteen shots from a Beman one afternoon. Never even got it out of the living room.
