Plinking, hunting, target shooting, spinners. That's what you can do with the RWS 48 air rifle! This sidelever spring-piston rifle is popular among airgunners who want affordable power and accuracy. All the members of one U.S. field target club use the RWS 48 exclusively! Be sure to use heavier pellets if you're shooting field target.

The well-balanced beech stock is truly ambidextrous and is extended for greater comfort. The RWS 48 is loaded through a sliding breech mechanism. To get the most accuracy from this powerhouse, mount a scope. It'll come in handy, whether you're shooting at tin cans or quarry.

We've recommended a variety of appropriate pellets, which are listed in the AMMO link. You'll need a robust scope & mount, so check our suggestions in the ACCESSORIES link, where you'll also find other shooting gear.

Things I liked:Everything on this rifle is superb for me.
Things I would have changed:Offer enhanced front and rear sights for low light shooting.
What others should know:This rifle is an excellent spring-piston. Accurate and powerful. Mine likes the 15-16 grain JSB and H&N pellets. It shoots the 18 grain pellets with about four inches of drop at 25 yards. There are no fliers with this rifle.....accurate! I am very satisfied.

Things I liked:Well built stock and metal parts.Heavy but manageable with a sling if carrying in the woods for hunting.Its a breeze to install the sling studs!Very hold sensitive.Took me about 100 rounds to figure out my best hold for this gun.It like to be held very lightly without any pressure point.Once I dial in the hold,I was able to put 5 shots in a 1/2 inch circle at 20 yds!.I use a Leaper 3x9x40 scope with medium ring on a UTG droop compensator scope base.I realized that my gun does not have a barrel droop so I reversed the scope base instead.So far it likes RWS Superdome,Grosman Premiers and the Diabolo Exact domes pellets.The Diabolo is the most accurate of these three pellets for my gun.I am very happy with the overall quality,accuracy ,and price for this gun.It really oozes German technology and built quality. Very happy with the puchase, and the customer service of PA.No regrets for my first air gun!
Things I would have changed:None for now....
What others should know:It is a heavy gun to shoot off hand.Mine weigh over 10 lbs with scope, scope base and rings!If you plan on doing a lot of walking for your hunt,a sling will be helpful.A shooting stick will help stabilise this heavy rifle with longer shots.Learn to hold it lightly on your shoulder,cheek and do not squeeze the forearm.Give it room to move from the double recoil and your accuracy will Improve.It likes dome pellets so far weighing between 13 to 18 grains .I zero it at 20 yds and it is good up to 35 yds.Above 35 yds I just have to hold over a tad on my mildot .Overall, be patience and take the time to learn the hold and pellets preference.Once you have these dialed in, it is a pleasure to shoot.

  • DON from USA asked:


    • 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.
