I had the opportunity to take the air rifle DIANA 54 AirKing in my hands and test it extensively some time ago. The DIANA 54 AirKing is an extremely popular airgun with a specially mounted, patented rebound system and greater recoil damping. Thus, the weapon allows recoilless shooting for perfect precision.


A top product "Made in Germany" which has fans and adherents far beyond Germany's borders. You will learn something about the technology in the video and experience the performance of the air rifle DIANA 54 AirKing in the shooting test. 

Technology of the DIANA 54 AirKing

The DIANA 54 AirKing air rifle - in contrast to its sister model DIANA 56 Target Hunter - features open sights; more specifically, adjustable rear and front sights. The weapon features a side cocking system with additional cocking guard and automatic safety catch.


The walnut coloured hunting-style stock with distinctive cheek-piece is made of beech wood. Furthermore, the pistol grip and front-stock with fine checkering complete the harmonious design. The DIANA 54 AirKing is suitable equally for left- and right-handed shooters.

DIANA 54 AirKing: conclusions

Intended purpose: due to the extremely high precision, the DIANA 54 AirKing airgun is ideal for hobby shooters but ambitious shooters and fans of spring pressure rifles as well. Not only benchrest shooting, but also field target are just fun with this rifle.


The weapon I have tested – a model with 7.5 joule – has completely convinced me while benchrest shooting as well as freehand shooting. Thereby, the DIANA 54 AirKing presents itself as an extremely precise high-quality air rifle. However when shooting freehand, the weapon demands a lot from the shooter because of its weight. 


Altogether the DIANA 54 AirKing is a timeless classic.
