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.
Things I liked: Beautiful furniture and attention to detail. A fine example of German machinery.
Things I would have changed: If you have thick fingers and thumbs, or arthritis a bit like I do, it can be a little challenging loading a pellet into the breach.
What others should know: Has a bit of heft to it so if you are looking for light and maneuverable, look elsewhere.

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.
Is there a solid recommendation on a scope or olympic sight set up for the Air King at .177?
There are a lot of scope options that would work. I'd recommend a Leapers as they are backed by a lifetime warranty and all of their scopes are magnum springer rated. I'd also recommend getting one of the Bullseye mounts: Bullseye ZR 1-Pc Mount, Fits...
OK, the rifle is in my cart. So I have just one straight forward question I'm hoping I'll gain some knowledge from. Should I go with the .177 or the .22? Just so you know, I don't hunt, strictly target and collection purposes. Which would you buy?
If you're just target shooting, I would go with .177 and get some heavy pellets to try out like H&N Baracuda and JSB Exact Heavy
