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: Easy to cock, load and reset. Good quality throughout. Awesome artillery action "built in;" no need for artillery hold. Accurate but... Quarter size groups out to 40 yards, 1.5 to 2 inch out to 50.

Things I would have changed: Use some aluminum parts to lighten ship. Make it in a modern thumbhole composite to lighten even more. These modern upgrades would go a long way to bring this accurate, easy to shoot springer into the 21st century.

What others should know: Dang it! I wanted to love this gun. I had over 300 rounds thru it and from the beginning every three to five shot would be low and a bit left and would group there nicely. I was shooting two groups in every shot count and losing about 38 to 44 FPS with the "flyers". Guys at Pyramyd said there was most likely a small nick in the seal that lined up with a blemish in the chamber and the air pressure would vary. They offered to fix no problem, but I'd already decided to return for a PCP and leave springers behind. HOWEVER, if you want a good springer with no hold sensitivity, this is it.

Things I liked: Diana: solid German Airgun with impeccable fit and finish; Spring Gun that' s easily accurate out of Box**!! Great $$ value; weight adds to its inherent accuracy; adjustable T06 trigger shipped with 4.5mm 54 AirKing;

Things I would have changed: Option to trade the sights for a barrel weight like on the Diana 56th!! would love to have this in a WALNUT stock!!

What others should know: Watch for EASY to FIX barrel droop/ Get the solid UTG compensator mount and Weaver rings; shooting supported accurately to 60+ yds. with 10X fixed mag scope; still NEW and shoots less than 30mm groups with H&N 4.52mm FTT 8.6 grains/ still might be better accuracy with $$ bigger mag scope and a different "magic" pellet; 54 & 56 series Diana: my most friendly and Accurate Spring Guns*****!!!!! Importantly, may push the action forward PRIOR to cocking to reduce the final cocking Effort by at least 20%%......Yes!!

Things I liked: The stock. The checkering. The weight (yes, if you can believe that). The eyesight line. Most of all, it's accuracy at distance.

Things I would have changed: I like just about everything with this gun except for one thing, the sights. These sights are just to big and bulky to have dead on accuracy that the gun can produce. I would make the front sight a lot smaller (maybe give a choice of a peep?) for accuracy.

What others should know: I am shooting about 22yds with this rifle and (with a scope) I can keyhole just about every shot. This is a very accurate rifle, one that should satisfy anybody in the market for a spring piston rifle. Just be weary of the sights. I would buy a good air gun scope along with the rifle. If you use it for hunting, don't bother but target shooting for group, yea, you will need the scope. The eyesight line is perfect for my face. When lay my cheek on the rest and open my eye, the scope is in line perfectly for my eyesight. Should be for yours too. At 25yds that I shoot, most of my shots all land within a half inch or less with most landing "keyhole" with the last shot. The weight is an issue though. For smaller frame people this gun might be a touch heavy for them. I would not hesitate buying another RWS 45 when I'm in the market for another air rifle.

  • Willowburton from USA asked:

    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?

    • Don from USA asked:

      Is the TO5 and TO6 triggers plastic or metal?

      • Joachim from USA:

        In the video he says plastic. Sturdy plastic, but plastic nonetheless.

    • ahkell from USA asked:

      Can anyone give me an idea of FPS with 14gr lead? Or 21 gr. lead? In .22? Many thanks!
