Things I liked:This gun is accurate and will stand out in a crowd thats for sure, the quality and walnut stock is perfect. It is worth every penny to me.
Things I would have changed:nothing
What others should know:This gun is heavier that the normal, I purchased it with that in mind and knowing that I would not be taking it on a long hike. The quality and feel of the stock perfect. I used open sights for the first tin of 500 and now a scope with the utg base and mounts. If you hold it the same way everytime (rest the foreend on palm ) you can hit flies on the wall. This is a full size air rifle ,easy to use for an adult not so easy for the younger /smaller shooter.
Things I liked:I have purchased the 48, 52 and 54 over the past few years and the 52 Luxus is the "chick magnet' of the bunch. The checkered walnut stock with the rosewood caps just flat out blows away the standard RWS beech stock. If you are thinking of a 48 or a standard 52 fugettaboutit get the Luxus for the modest extra cost you will get a top notch German air rifle with the looks of a supermodel. OK forget the hyperbole consider that the Luxus will be a special gun with upside as a collector piece. You heard it first here.
Things I would have changed:The mediocre RWS scope sight. However I have ordered the very nifty Leapers RWS special scope sight from Pyramid can't wait to get them (for all my RWS rifles) as they will CURE the scope shift/sight problem once and for all.
What others should know:I bought a 48 in .177 and a 54 in .22 before I bought the Luxus. I decided to purchase the 52 Luxus because I like the RWS sidelevers and I wanted one in the walnut stock pure and simple. I am not disappointed and if you are considering the RWS sidelever rifles this is the one to get. Hey RWS how about a 54 Luxus, now that would be something - recoiless and beautiful!
