Diana RWS 48 Air Rifle, TO6 Trigger

  • Rudedawg from USA asked:

    Will a 48 in .22 kill a raccoon and if so at distances of 30 yrds or less?

    • Grayland from USA:

      Yes head shot eye or just below the ear. Heavy pellet 21 grain.

  • James from USA asked:

    will the Leapers UTG 30mm SWAT 3-12x44 AO Rifle Scope work on an RWS model 48 / 52? If so what mounting hardware would you recommend?

    • Grayland from USA:

      Try the new rws bullseye mounts or rws lock down mount.

  • Ernest from USA asked:

    anyone have a noisy firing cycle? My .177 48 has a sound kind of like a honk when firing, not when cocking. How noisy is your 48 when firing?

    • Ernest from USA:

      three distributors (including Umarex) never heard of such a condition. I was advised to lube the chamber. I put in two drops of RWS chamber oil and let it sit overnight. Sounds like the piston was dry, doesn't it.Well, my two month old .177 self destructed and is now being re-built by Umarex who needed to be convinced that I should not be charged for the job. Beware if you have an RWS that is noisey.

  • DON from USA asked:


    • Paul from USA:

      Ashley is correct you need to know the scope objective lens plus the scope tube size in order to recommend the ring size.

    • Ernest from USA:


    • Ashley from USA:

      Thats going to depend on what scope you get because it depends on rather it has a 1" or 30mm tube as well as selecting the right hight for the objective.

  • Brad from USA asked:

    Since this rifle has a fixed barrel, do you feel that using a droop compensating scope mount is necessary? Ideally, I'd like to use a set of scope rings that clamp directly to the receiver dovetails.

    • Paul from USA:

      It all depends my RWS52 which is a fixed barrel needed a droop compensater.

    • Jerry from USA:

      Droop rail is not necessary for the fixed barrel

  • Marty from USA asked:

    Is there a video showing how to lube a RWS 48

    • Stephen from USA:

      As far as I can tell no. But Figure 10b was rather confusing. You have to remove the trigger guard and stock. On the bottom side you will see a hole with the spring in it. As far as the barrel, your guess is as good as mine.

  • david from USA asked:

    Is the BSA scope compatible with rws 48 side cocker. Scope says will not handle magnum spring

    • Neal from USA:

      Paul is right, my 48 destroyed a BSA scope inside of 100 rounds. I am using a Leapers now that still shoots great after several hundred rounds.

    • Paul from USA:

      I would definitely look into getting a leaper scope.
