    The RWS 54 Air King is a recoilless sidelever rifle based on the action of the RWS 48/52 series. By floating the action on rails, RWS takes the rifle's powerful recoil and significantly reduces the amount you feel. It also enhances accuracy, because the pellet exits the barrel before spring vibration is transmitted to it.

    Our .177-cal. RWS 54 Air King has the TO5 trigger. The .22-cal. model has the TO6 trigger. Both are 2-stage adjustable triggers and have an excellent reputation.


    The 54 is dressed up in a Monte Carlo beech stock with a raised cheekpiece. For better control, RWS added checkering to the grip and forearm. The changes in the stock configuration make an already-great gun even better. Truly, this is a competitor's dream come true! Loading is done through a sliding breech mechanism. Like the 48 and 52, this rifle can be used for field target, plinking, hunting, target shooting and spinners. This sidelever spring-piston rifle is popular among airgunners who truly want to win at whatever they do! To get the most accuracy from this powerhouse, mount a scope. It'll come in handy, whether you're shooting at field targets or quarry.

    We've recommended a variety of appropriate pellets, which are listed in the AMMO link below. You'll need a robust scope, so check out our suggestions in the ACCESSORIES link, where you'll also find other shooting necessities.

    Things I liked:This gun is amazing accurate. Out of box first 2 5 shot groups at 15 yards with open sights i had less than .25" CTC shooting JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.13 grains. I moved the target to 35 yards and was shooting .5 " groups with Open sights. I have shot a lot of springers in my day, all of which were hold sensitive which they all should be. With the recoiless system on this gun you literally dont feel a thing and before the reverse recoil is transferred to the barrel the pellet has already left. It is not hold sensitive at all!!!! I shot it in a gun vice, resting on a gun bag, holding it against a tree standing, offhand, and it didn't affect the accuracy at all. When purchasing a air rifle it all really boils down to accuracy imo and this gun has it guaranteed. I can not wait to get a scope for the gun and see what it is really capable of. I cannot really express how amazed i was with the accuracy of this gun.
    Things I would have changed:i think they could have done better with this gun and given it a metal trigger. I have no idea why the trigger is made out of plastic when the rest of the gun looks so well built.
    What others should know:I am built on the bigger side and i have no issues shooting it offhand. The first few times cocking was much harder than i expected it to be but after about 20-30 shots it got much easier to cock. I shot probably 200 pellets through it the first day and i was not fatigued at all. You probably not be able to cock this gun from a prone position unless you are pretty strong. I have seen a couple reviews that this gun favors shooting a level line but i assure you that i shot targets 30 ft up off our 3rd story deck and shot targets on the ground from my 3rd story deck with no affect to the accuracy. This gun seems to favor heavier pellets. I had the tightest groups with baracuda 21.14, jsb 18.13, beeman kodiak 21.14. The JSBs shot the best for me. One other thing about the floating rail system. It is possible for you to inadvertantly knock the barrel back once it has been loaded which then it will act like a normal spring gun. All you have to do is push it back with your thumb.

    Things I liked:Robust German Airgun in 0.22cal!! Flawless wood and metal finish; Very usable open sights; Trigger adjustment was perfect; Texture of checkering is superb; Well balanced airgun with Phillips stock fasteners; Adequate internal lubing with very minimal dieseling;Dime groups at 18 yards with just open sights...New just out of the box!!
    Things I would have changed:Would buy a second if made available in Walnut stock or Laminate stock! Mill the dovetail into the receiver even at increased cost;need a Truly ambidextrous stock although this shoots fine Lefty; Any way to make cocking the mechanism easier...LOL***
    What others should know:RWS is a great Value and Quality in a German pedigree Airgun! Airgun's Anti-recoil floating action appears to greatly improve its inherent accuracy especially since my first was a RWS 34 0.22 cal just three months ago; Will be mounting A Hawke 30 Sidewinder soon and expecting quarter sized groups at 45 to 50 yards from this great Classic German Springer****!! H&N 5.53mm pellets****

    Things I liked:I purchased an Air King after reading the reviews & knowing that it had stood the test of time. Mine is a .177 T06 Pro - without the fixed sights but with a barrel weight. This is a nicely balanced well put together rifle. The finish is glass blasted matt which looks great. The T06 (yes - it is a .177 T06) trigger did not require any adjustment whatsoever. The accuracy is still to be assessed and the rifle is still in its break in period; but early indications are that it is an accurate shooter. I am using H&N Barracuda Match 4.52 pellets - as these were included with the rifle.
    Things I would have changed:This is a very nice rifle, and I would not recommend any changes.
    What others should know:Some may describe the rifle as heavy, but it is well balanced and not difficult to carry, hold and aim. The 39lb cocking weight could be a challenge for some initially, but frequent use will assist you to develop the strength so this too is not a factor in the buying decision. I tried Crosman Premier and JSB Exact Heavy pellets but the H&N Barracuda Match 4.52 have performed best. When mounting the scope consider using a single piece mount that compensates for barrel droop.

    • Jim from USA asked:

      Can this rifle be shot left handed?

      • Dan the Man from USA:

        You can, but the cheek piece is set up for right handers.

    • Charlotte from USA asked:

      I have heard this is a scope killer. What are scope and mount recommendations?

      • William from USA:

        The leapers etched glass reticle scopes are a much better value for the money. I have had a leapers 3-12X44 compact (etched glass reticle) on mine for a good while now with no problems at all. I bought another for my RWS 460. The cheap bundled wire reticle scope it came with only lasted 1 day.

      • Tyler from USA:

        Yes it can be. The new ZR mount from Diana would be ideal. As for a scope, I would go for a Hawke largely because they have such a good warranty. With this rifles scope breaking history, you may need it. I would get a glass etched Hawke, either the Sport HD IR line, Endurance line or Sidewinder line.

    • ahkell from USA asked:

      Is there a droop on a fixed barreled gun?

      • Tyler from USA:

        Not typically but it can happen. It's not a bad idea to have a droop compensating base or an adjustable one just in case.
