The RWS 54 isn't called the AirKing for nothing. This rifle is beautiful, shoots hard and is pinpoint accurate. It's a heavy rifle at 9lbs but very stable. At 20 yards I'm getting dime size groups with open sites. I'm in the process of mounting a SWFA super sniper straight 10 power on it. It really likes the JSB 15.89 grain pellets these chronograph at 760fps along with the JSB Predator red tip hunting pellet at 750fps. Save up the extra 120 dollar and get the recoilless feature. I highly recommend buying from Straight Shooters they answered all my questions helping me make the right decision. Shipping was fast. They are a top notch company. Buy it you won't be disappointed.

Advantages: Recoilless is awesome (No artillery hold needed). Fit, finish and function is high quality. Get the 22 cal if you plan to do any hunting, it hits hard.

Disadvantages: Rifle is expensive but you get what you pay for, top German quality. Weight is heavy but I'm getting use to it. It's better than carrying around a scuba tank for your PCP.

I own a Model 54, plus 3 Air Arms S510 PCPs. All purchased from Straight Shooters with fabulous service received at every opportunity.

The Air Arms are fabulous, one hole rifles (.22 (2) and .177). The real surprise - the Model 54 shoots 1 ragged hole groups at 25 yards as well, with equal and devasting power on small game.

Terrific value for the price.

Advantages: It likes a wide variety of pellets, but is amazingly accurate with the Polymag 16 gr, the Crow Magnum 18.21 Gr, the Kodiak Hollowpoint 18.21 Gr, the Kodiak 21,12 Gr (particularly copper plated - wow), the H & N Field Target Trophy, 14.66 Gr, The Benjamin Discovery 14.3 Gr Hollowpoint, and The JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.13 Gr (producing single hole groups). Equally surprising, the point of impact probably doesn't vary more than 3/16" across the range of these pellets.

Disadvantages: It is very heavy for field work and the single shot does perceivable hunting limitations - though I don't think I have every need more than one shot with this rifle.

I bought a RWS 54 22 cal. in Dec. of last year with just straight sights, and was shooting pretty good groups at 20 to 30 YDs right out of the box, and for my age of 67 years young not to bad. I thought that I could do better with a scope, so first I need a mount that will hold up to a magnum springer, and bought a BKL mount then sent for a leapers 3-9x40 scope, and now at 20 YDs I hit dead centers almost every time, and at 30YDs in 5 shoot groups are smaller then a dime, and now I am trying to keep my 5 shoots at 50 YDs inside of a dime, and almost there. I have owned many types of air rifles through the years, and I found that if you want a really good air gun you will pay for it. The RWS are higher priced but you get what you pay for, and a lot of years of enjoyable hunting an shooting for many years to come. Yes I am 67 years old, and there is some complaints about the weights of some being so heavy, but I don't mind it to much for me. what I have with my RWS and scope now is a hunters, and target shooters would love! I hope this will help the people that reads this . Hunter Jim

Advantages: 22 cal. better for hunting small, an bigger game.

Disadvantages: nothing comes to mind.
