Diana Model 54 Air King Sidelever Air Rifle
If you're looking for the ultimate in power and accuracy from a spring-piston air rifle, without the recoil they normally produce, look no further than the Diana Model 54 Air King sidelever action springer.
One of the Diana Model 54's most unique and sought-after features is its recoilless action. Employing a set of rails on which the action hovers, Diana has significantly reduced felt recoil. This not only makes for a more comfortable shooting experience. It also improves accuracy because pellets clear the muzzle before being affected by spring vibration.
The Diana Model 54 Air King's blued steel components are wrapped in a dapper, beechwood Monte Carlo stock with a checkered forestock, grip and raised cheekpiece. With top velocities of 1100 FPS in .177 caliber and 900 FPS in .22, this spring piston air rifle is well suited for everything from plinking and target shooting to pest removal and small-game hunting.
|Max Velocity||1100 fps|
|Cocking Effort||39 lbs.|
|Front Sight||Blade & Ramp|
|Rear Sight||Adjustable for windage & elevation|
|Suggested for||Small game hunting/plinking|
|Trigger Pull||3.3 lbs|

Things I liked: Pick up this rifle and you know you have a top quality machine in your hands.
Things I would have changed: Take 2 pounds off of it. (Not possible, really)
What others should know: Fit , finish , accuracy , and everything is top German quality. I like to set pop cans on end with the pull tab facing me. My 54 (in .22) w/ Bushy 5-15 AO will take out the rivet of the pull tab at 40 yds. The next two shots just widen the hole. This is off my porch railing resting on my hand. The biggest problem is the few times you miss you can't blame the rifle.
Things I liked: FIT AND FINISH is Flawless , Wood stock has beautifully checkering and feels great in hand. Blueiing is nicely done. I have been shooting RWS supper dome .22 cal at 40 yards bullseye after bullseye!
Things I would have changed: Not a thing.
What others should know: The RWS AIR KING IS A HEAVY RIFLE , the floating rail takes a bit getting used to. And I also had to Shim my hawk air max I suggest buying Scope mounts that compensate droop... When you first Handel you AIR KING do not be alarmed over the rattle thats how the floating rail is designed when you cock your rifle the rail moves thus the recoil is reduced dramatically. ALSO INVEST SOME MONEY IN A GOOD SCOPE , I PUT THE HAWK AIRMAX ON MINE . BULLSEYE THIS RIFLE IS VERY ACCURATE.
Things I liked: Build quality , accuracy , lack of recoil. This rifle is made to be the King of Air Guns !
Things I would have changed: It is a bit heavy , but man up or stay home.
What others should know: Of course , get a quality scope. No place to pinch pennies.

Which Vortex spring kit is for this 54 model, and is it worth the 89. bucks? Do they return all the original parts and packaging that are replaced?
Worth it yes. Makes the gun super smooth and more enjoyable to shoot. And if you pay to have it installed then yes it comes with the oem parts.
OK, now we have a real problem with the Air King 54. The trigger would not "catch" so i turned the trigger adjustment screw a quarter turn out(counterclockwise) and still the same. I turned it back a half turn in (clockwise) same thing again. I cocked the gun and gave it a very firm pull and the spring locked back. Success!! Not so fast, went to fire it again and the trigger will not release the spring to fire the rifle. I removed the pellet from the barrel with a cleaning rod and adjusted the trigger every which way. Now the rifle is cocked and will not release the spring tension to dis-assemble safely. It does make a small click when re-cocked but will not fire. yes, the spring is compressed fully and no resistance until the very end when cocking again. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
I would call in and ask for a repair. But it seems the trigger sear is not engaging with the top/mid sear trial and error adjusting the trigger screws with gun in a safe direction should do it. But again I would call Pyramydair/airventuri for a repair.
Does the elevation dial on top supposed to click when turned? Mine doesn't.
Thank you so much for that answer. Last night I unscrewed the dial and there is indeed two small indents which should have small metal bearings in them which make the dial click. They are missing for some reason, and on a new gun. If I knew what size those bearing are supposed to be I can just drop them into the indents and problem solved. As an experiment I used regular bb's....but they're way too big. Thank you......Steve
My three RWS/Diana rifles all click when the elevation dial on the open sight is adjusted. There is a ball detent system in the sight. If you screw your elevation dial all the way up, you should be able to remove the adjuster dial and see if it has detent slots/holes on the underside. IF they are not there, that would tell me that Diana has changed the design so it does not click/detent any longer. But if they are and you don't have the spring/ball detent set up, I'd send the gun back for a replacement or call Umarex USA for a new sight.
