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.
Things I liked: Everything. Beautiful gun. Completely recoilless. Hits like a truck in .22 and keyholes shots at 30 yards(furthest Ive shot thus far.)
Things I would have changed: Maybe make the front sight thinner to accomodate the pinhole accuracy of this piece a little better. That assuming you arent using a scope of course. Although considering this guns reputation as a scope eater, unless you are planning on shelling out a few hundred for a quality built scope, I wouldnt reccomend it.
What others should know: I ordered this in .22 off of amazon because I got it new for a little over $150 less. Not that I wouldnt pay full price if I had to do it again. Just a great piece. A little on the heavy side, but I like that personally.
Things I liked: This is without question an hierloom rifle. My grandchildren will be shooting this. Fit, finish, function, accuracy, all of it fantastic. It can be fired from the bench or a bipod without loss of accuracy. The trigger is amazing right out of the box, being able to feel both stages makes it very easy to get on target before firing. You only need to purchase ammunition and proper lubes, otherwise it is a shooter right out of the box. The recoil absorbtion system WORKS. Caliber is personal preference, in .22 this is a target and hunting gun.
Things I would have changed: Maybe the three plastic bits...otherwise nothing.
What others should know: I did not purchase this rifle at PA, PA has only recently become my go too. You could purchase a PCP for the price, but then you would have to purchase all of the supporting gear if you don't already have it. This gun is a scope KILLER!, even with the recoil system. Make sure you purchase a properly rated scope that has recieved good reviews. Try different ammunition, quality ammunition, don't let someone tell you what to use, 14gr to 16gr seems to be the sweet spot for this powerplant. Properly maintained, this gun will last for generations.

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
If you all expert do not mind I need some big solution of my confusion about best airgun !! If I buy spring piston airgun which one is best for any kind of hunting and powerful Such as like medium or small game airgun??
Thank you !!!
That's a hard question and one you will get many answers to. The 54 is a great gun for small game hunting in .22 caliber. But make sure to get a Bullseye scope mount to help your scope outlast the harsh recoil of the action.
