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.

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.

Great Rifle
November 19, 2011
I own this Rifle and it Shoots straight everytime i hit the same hole on the target from 50 yrd. It has taken out anything I have aimed at with accuracy.. (birds,squril, Targets) I have owned this rifle for 4 years and it still hits strong as ever..
Not loud Stays Accurate..
Can be hard for some to cock

Nice Pellet Rifle.
October 4, 2016
Overall a delightful gun to shoot. Recoil is almost nonexistent. On the quieter side of the pellet gun experience. The cocking procedure takes time learn. The accuracy is most surprising for a spring gun this one shoots 1/2"minus groups at 20 yards without much effort. .22 cal Pellet speed is currently averaged at 777 fps with 15.89 JSB. Using an older Simmons 6.5-20 x 50 made in the Philippines, and accuracy is holding well. It's very nice to have an accurate, powerful 22 pellet rifle that doesn't require a pump.
Accurate. Very little recoil. Quiet. Nice trigger.
On the heavy side.

Well made ... Deadly accurate on small game.
September 14, 2016
I've owned my RWS model 54 for 7 years. It's extremely accurate after the gun breaks in, and does not have the crazy recoil associated with other spring powered rifles. I use mine strictly for hunting, and have killed several hundred squirrel. I've fired it so much that I finally wore the spring out (Along with some other internal components), and sent the gun back to UMEREXUSA for a complete rebuild. The total cost of the rebuild was only $134, and I basically got back a brand new fifle. Since the rebuild I switched to shooting Predator Polymag 16 GR pellets, and the fifle loves them! I'm zeroed at 25 yards, but can shoot flat out to 35 yards. The only issue with the rifle is that it will destroy a scope ... Mine killed "7" before finally mounting a 3x9x32 Leupold designed for spring powered air rifles. I LOVE this rifle, and would highly recommend it to anyone. By the way, the utube video of the Airgun Depot representative shooting out a candle flame at 15 yards is not a hoax ... This rifle will do that.
Great accuracy, high quality.
Hard on scopes, and may have to be re zeroed after 25 shots.

I think the RWS54 air king air rifle-.22 caliber is a well made rifle.
March 13, 2015
I started out with iron sights, and bought a BKL one peace scope mount, and a leapers 3-9X40 SCOPE , and now at 30 yards I can hit all most the same hole every time, so I think if I was varmint hunting they would drop like flies. I know that I could hunt a lot of small game with no problems, at the young age of 67 years of age I have owned many types of air rifles in my years, and yes the RWS 54 AIR KING cost a lot , but to someone that has shot many types ,from pumps to all types of magnum springers , I think its worth the money, and with a little time I should hit 10 ROUNDS the size of a dime at 50yards,and from there I will see what I can do at a 100 YD. HUNTER JIM.
I like the iron sights, they work well. 2 stage Trigger has a real nice pull. Love the auto safety. Love the anti-recoil slide. Was very well made and very accurate. Is also really great with a 1-piece BKL scope mount and the Leapers scope makes it superb.

rws 54
December 18, 2014
Just got my new 54 very nice rifle out of the box.Looks and feels very nice in your hands not as heftey as i thought it would be.Cleaned and shot a few times will let people know after a few 100 rounds No scope on yet have sun 6-24 coming for it.Will report later.
Just a nice look and feels like it is going to be a great shooter a real mans gun.
I think it could have been packed a bit better for the money.

Very Accurate
September 12, 2014
Rifle is heavy, especially with a scope and found inconsistencies with different pellets. By far the best pellet for this gun is a wad cutter, you will hit an aspirin or light a match at 30 yrds and .33" groupings at 50 yrds. It's not that hard to cock unless your real weak or small girl like build. Guaranteed for life, quality German engineering so it's worth every penny!

Owned mine 15 Years
February 27, 2014
Hits better than a firearm at 25 yrds or can hit at 80 yrds and still have power to go thru a tin can...not bad for a pellet rifle. You would have to go to the 3000PSI Scuba tank units to do better and those are expensive and dangerous. Get a CZ 452 rifle and shoot shorts if this won't cut it for you.
all good...Exceeds expectations in it's class

You get what you pay for! Accuracy Accuracy Accuracy POWER!
December 8, 2012
I haven't shot in years and I was never a great shooter. This gun makes me look like a pro. Once I have the RWS 4-12x50 AO scope zeroed, I shoot 1/4 ragged holes. The gun is heavy but is lethal. German beauty. Worth every single penny!
German Quality. Accuracy and power.
I never know if the pellet just keeps going through the same hole or not.

Model 54 review
March 15, 2012
This is my second model 54 rifle, my first was stolen by my ex-brother n-law Both rifles are the most consistently accurate pellet rifles I have ever shot. I find there is plenty of stoping power to drop varmint at a distance of at least 50 yards
The precision; consistent, repeative accuracy
A little on the heavy side with a weight around 9lbs.
