Things I liked: The 54 airking is a pure beast. I take it to the range when I shoot my real firearms and I end up shooting the airking more. I end up getting more compliments on the air gun than my other firearms. I strongly recommend the .22. The fit and finish is excellent and for all of you who say it is heavy you need to do some push-ups.
Things I would have changed: Nothing at all . This gun in .22 is literally the air King.
Things I liked: My compliments to your tech on the 20/20 service who sighted in the rifle. 4 tight bulls eyes at 35 yards right out of the case. Accurate deluxe! Your staff recommended & mounted the Leapers UTG3 True Hunter Rifle Scope. Perfect combo.
Things I would have changed: Very poor instructions booklet on operation of the rifle. I had never used a side lever before. Unless you learn the hard way to pull it back way beyond 90 degrees; everything locks up.
Things I liked: I've wanted this airgun for a long time. I like its masculine looks, its power, the fact that it is essentially without recoil, its side lever cocking, its open sights (which many guns seem to do away with these days), its strong bear trap protection, the fact that it is semi-ambidextrous (I'm left-handed), the fact that it is not hold sensitive, and the fact that it can accept a bipod and sling, should one wish to have those. The gun is quite accurate (haven't finished the accuracy workup) and a pleasure to look at and to shoot. With an anti-droop scope mount, there is plenty of adjustment room on the scope. I'm sighting it in at 42 yards (according to the ballistics chart). I'm not a sophisticated evaluator of triggers, but the T06 is the nicest trigger on any of my ten firearms and pellet rifles. German quality is evident throughout.
Things I would have changed: With an anti-droop scope mount, the gun is so large that very few gun cases can hold it. I finally found a Plano "two-rifle" waterproof case that works. The gun has the reputation for eating scopes, but so far the UTG Bug-Buster is doing fine. Believe the reviews that say that this rifle is LARGE and HEAVY. It's great with a field tripod or bipod, but wouldn't be much fun to carry around all day in the field.
What others should know: I'd love to see this gun in a walnut or laminated stock.
Most springers produce accurate results only when shot using the "artillery hold". This springer floats on it's stock much like a howitzer cannon recoils through it's mounting system. Keeping this in mind, does the RWS 54 require the "artillery hold" for accurate shooting?
Depends how much you pratice. You don't need an artillery hold to be accurate with this gun. It depends on your strength body habitus consistency and how much time you can put into one particular style
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?
It is really quiet. However make sure you have a good backstop and know what's behind your target. I have the .22 and it packs more of a punch than I feel comfortable shooting in a residential yard.
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.
