A totally recoilless, spring piston airgun seemed little more than a dream before the recent appearance of the Model 54. In order to realize this goal the engineers spent years experimenting with different systems until they created this mechanical marvel. Simple but durable, the 54 uses a floating action riding on rails to achieve a totally recoiless system that stands up to the pounding of our 1100 fps system. Not only does this arrangement prevent transmission of felt recoil to the shooter, it also permits the rifle to excel in the accuracy department. When the rifle is fired, the action moves back lightly within the stock, absorbing the recoil, and permitting the pellet to exit the barrel before any of the spring vibration affects its travel. This system dramatically improves the accuracy potential of this magnum air rifle, making it a first class choice for either long range pest control or the precise demands of field target shooting. This side lever cocking magnum rifle's other features include adjustable trigger, adjustable rear sight, scope rail, Monte Carlo stock with cheek piece and checkering, and an automatic safety.

RWS model 54 Air King
December 1, 2014
Bought this one refurbished; nothing mechanically wrong and in perfect condition. While attempting to zero the rifle, I figured it out, the front sight blade was bent to the right just slightly. It was just enough to have to run the rear sight all the way to the right. Tweaked the front sight blade with a nylon tipped hammer, went back out to try the zero game and the rear sight is almost right dead center on the rifle. This is my second RWS, first being a Model 48 in .177 and this one in .177 too. The model 54 is a gem, it is a quality weapon from the checkered stock to the finish on the metal parts. Not to mention that it is a tack driver with Diablo pellets in the 10.65 grain range. Will scope it in the near future.
Pros:Weapon fit, stock, mechanics of the weapon, ease of cocking, quality sights, weight of the rifle~
Cons:A smaller person would probably find the weight of the rifle to be a detriment~
refurbished RWS 54

This rifle is awsome! When I recieved this rifle I was very impressed with it's condition, it had a small nick on the barrel but other than that it looks like it is new. I'm pretty sure I can touch up the nick with some blueing paste. I have also been able to shoot a pattern with three shots touching each other at 20 yards. I'm shooting .177 -7.9gr hollow points, and best of all I saved about $300.00 over a brand new one. Also, the recoiless action is great but if you are planing to put a scope on it make sure it is a heavy duty one and you use a extra scope stop because although there is very little felt recoil the action and the scope are the ones absorbing it.
