Things I liked: This is an amazing gun and very, very accurate. With my old model 48 I could get a tight group at 20 yds but it expanded out to 4 inches at 30 yds. This gun shoots a tight group from 20 to 35 yds. I didn't try any farther. the recoiless function was amazing. My old gun was so sensitive to how you held it. You had to absorb the recoil and stay on target. This has no recoil. I like the new shape to the stock which is more comfortable. I love the trigger which is very consistent. It is a great gun and worth every penny.
Things I would have changed: nothing.
What others should know: I haven't hunted with it yet but with the increase in accuracy I will have more confidence to take the kill shot.
Things I liked: Accuracy, recoilless design, and quality of construction.
Things I would have changed: This is one HEAVY airgun. That's an advantage when shooting from the bench, but for hunting, you'll think you're humping an M1 Garand through the boonies. It ought to come with sling swivels installed! For a long hunting session, a sling is really a necessity.
What others should know: Although this air rifle is recoilless from the shooter's perspective, that's because the action & barrel slide on rails. Any scope & mounts need to be designed for use on a typical, heavy recoil, spring-cocker.
Things I liked: I agree with most of the comments except those about .22 cal only. I got the .177 because I wanted a Field Target capable rifle in case I ever take up that sport plus it has plenty of power to kill any rabbit or squirrel with a head shot. I don't need more power. Also, it shoots flat and .177 is cheaper. With Kodiak Golds it's subsonic and very accurate. The Kodiaks may have shot a tiny bit better but I like clean fingers. I have shot tin cans at 60 yards offhand with this air rifle.
Things I would have changed: In a perfect world I would liked it sized 10% smaller, lighter and less powerful. The weight is about a pound too heavy with scope for offhand shooting at least for me. I often wear my shooting jacket which eliminates that problem. It is a good way to build up your strength and if you limit your shooting it's not bad. I find the stock a bit long for me when reaching for the trigger. The cocking lever is ugly. It's a bit loud.
What others should know: It's as accurate as my Marauder. It's a fun gun to shoot prone, sitting or from a bench or shooting sticks. Offhand it's a bit of work.
Does this rifle come in more than 1 model? below is a clip from a review that causes me to ask this question: As expected, the online reviews of the RWS 54 Air King, no matter if it is the Umarex RWS 54, The Diana RWS 54 or just the RWS 54 Air King that is being reviewed, score very high indeed.
Umarex is importer/distributor, RWS is brand, Diana is the original manufacturer out of Germany, Air King is an informal name given to it by some customers. So... This is all just one gun.
Is this rifle backyard friendly in terms of loudness? I have a hatsan pcp which is loud and can only shoot it with a modulator. Would the loudness of this one go unnoticed?
While far from silent the impact of the pellet is usually greater than the barrel niose. My 54 is quieter than my Benjamin pump rifle at three pumps. I shoot both of these guns in my basement comfortably.
Well it really depends on your neighbors , i have an airforce talon 20 caliber with a shroud and my neighbor complain. Per Paul Capellos video #28 he measures it at 102.4 decibels which is 3-medium by PA's specs.
Is the TO5 and TO6 triggers plastic or metal?
Most calibers come with the plastic T05 trigger. The .22 caliber model comes with the metal T06 trigger.
In the video he says plastic. Sturdy plastic, but plastic nonetheless.
