RWS Model 34

I do need to limit the dollar amount I am going to spend on an air rifle. I want the Goldfinger R9 but, that will prob have to wait.
I did find a RWS model 34 combo with a factory mount and 4x32 scope in . 177 for $225.00 locally. I can probably trade around and get this for very little.
Does anyone own one of these? If so, are they accurate and reliable? I understand they are over 1000 fps. but, I have also read on here..most think that is too fast for accuracy? What do you think?
I will only be shooting targets, birds and up close red and grey squirrels .
I am not worried about noise if they are loud as my nearest neigbor is 200 yds away and on my other property, thay are about 1/2 mile away.
How would this rifle compare to my old Sheridan? besides being much easier to load and only one pump as opposed to 8 pumps on the Sheridan?

i've been shooting heavier pellets in it (9-10+ gr.)...

I was using mine out to about 75 yards to put a domed pellet between the shell opening on turtles in my father-in-laws pond. Not every shot, but enough to reduce his turtle population in his pond. If I missed and didn't hit the shell, the turtle had no reaction to the pellet hitting the water.
I would like a 3-9 with target knobs or a mildot for accurate hold over, but with practice the 4x works ok.
