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: 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.

Things I liked: So many things... I never imagined a springer could be this good. The RWS 54 in .22 is complete and utter devastation on small game and varmint within 100 yards. I like the T06 trigger, which legitimately everyone I have let use the rifle has been surprised and impressed by. I really like the side lever which allows for super low profile, easy, and quiet loading while hunting. I love that you don't have to use an artillery hold, and that the skills transfer over to regular firearm usage. But most of all, I'm addicted to the almost effortless follow through and ability to hit EXACTLY what I was aiming at EVERY TIME so long as I take a calculated approach.

Things I would have changed: Add two swivel studs for a sling, a spot for a bipod, make the rear iron sight better, send the gun out with less oil, and make the muzzle designed to take on legitimate airgun silencers that don't fall in a legal gray area. Also, RWS should include a scope droop compensator. It's almost silly you have to buy it separate for a rifle which is clearly designed for those who want/need extreme precision.

What others should know: I give this 4 stars overall only because there are clearly lighter PCP rifles with more bells and whistles (though a much steeper price). I have had incredible success with this gun and believe that unless you plan on carrying an oxygen tank and compressor through the woods, this is the king of .22 pellet hunting. I have shot 13 different types of .22 through it, and found despite what so many have said, Crosman premiers and HP both shot horribly. For my gun, JSB Diabolos (15.89 or 18.13) are FAR superior to all other ammunition in firing characteristics (literally can shoot within a nickel every time at 50 yards with good shooting platform and strong grip). H&N Barracuda 21 grain is also very accurate, however, they're not hand selected and therefore have too many flyers to be my "go to". Barracuda Hunter Extremes are good for people who have pests, but lack the accuracy to hit the brain. Oh, this thing eats cheap scopes. Buy a good one (I use a 4-16 x 50 Hawk) and USE LOCTITE.

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.

  • CRAIG from USA asked:

    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.

    • Val from USA:

      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.

  • 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?

    • Timothy from USA:

      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.

    • Stanley from USA:

      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.

  • Don from USA asked:

    Is the TO5 and TO6 triggers plastic or metal?

    • Billy from USA:

      Most calibers come with the plastic T05 trigger. The .22 caliber model comes with the metal T06 trigger.

    • Joachim from USA:

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