    field and stream
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: Not much to not like. Plain but nice stock accurate has a good trigger I like the side lever and especially how you can let go at any point and the anti bear trap holds it. Mine is in .177 and likes jsb heavy and h&n barracuda the best

Things I would have changed: The soft scope rail that can tear if you use a stop pin

What others should know: Mine had some barrel droop but was easy to fix with leaper droop mount which also fixes their soft scope mount issue also so a must I think if using a scope also mine was a bit dry and honked but i read an article by Tom gaylord and put two drops of chamber oil in and problem solved other than that great rifle

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Great looking gun. Very accurate right out of the box. Mine likes CPHP pellets but shoots other pellets very good also.

Things I would have changed: Include a weaver scope mount with the rifle. Other than that nothing.

What others should know: Gun shoots very good out of the box and after about 100-200 pellets rifle becomes a tack driver all the way to 50 yards, 70 yards groups under an inch. I have many air rifles and this is my favorite. I have some of the most hold sensitive air rifles out there and this one is NOT hold sensitive. Mine is a .22 and has a UTG droop compensating weaver mount and a UTG 3-12x44 swat accushot scope. Awesome rifle.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: I recently purchased the Diana 48 .22 to6 on July 2016 and I tell you what before I review the product I would like to think Pyramyd Air excellent customer service and standing by their word ,as far as the rifle goes it has excellent accuracy and Trigger and power as far as the weight it will feel heavy Once you pull it out of the box but after using it for 10 minutes it'll feel very normal and the cocking effort it'll feel a little strong the first 5 - 10 attempt but after that you'll get used to it and you would have no problem with it at all some people say the rifle has short stock but that didn't appear the problem at all with me even though I have long arms The Recoil at my judgement I think it's medium and all that I think it's because that little extra way that rifle has which also makes it more stable while standing without an arm rest not to mention also I was shooting from iron sight so no scope or anything .

Things I would have changed: I could see better iron sights on this rifle

  • Lajos from USA asked:

    What is the LOP of this rifle?

    • Harry from USA asked:

      Most parts for this 'Air Arms" are not identifyable from available schematics nor available for purchase from any "Googled" search. I have a RWS/Diana 48/52, purchased from "Pyramid Air" about 1993?, It has about 2000+- rounds thru it when spring broke and discovered rear end of plastic spring guide had also broken into pieces upon disassembly. Only replacement parts for repair are from alternate source after much research. Suggest purchasing a much cheaper air gun, and avoid RWS/Diana.

      • Harry from USA:

        Just got the RWS/Diana 48/52, .177, back together this afternoon with the Vortek spring assembly installed. I used a liberal amount of their lube on the spring but not as much as they suggested. Very light lube to the Piston seal (original) which appears to be in excellent condition. Cleaned everything with degreaser and alcohol. The new guide doesn't allow the piston to travel as far back as the old which results in the cocking action to need an extra effort to engage the locking mechanism, and the auto safety does not fully activate. I'll need to investigate further to find what is causing this issue. The gun is quieter and initial results indicate a more consistant grouping of rounds fired, although it was only at 10 yards. Will play with it some more later and mount a drop compensator rail and a Leapers for a longer range evaluation.

    • Randall from USA asked:

      Is there a difference between an umerex Rws and a Diana Rws?

      • Paul from USA:

        This rifle is made by Diana of Germany RWS was a distributor, now Umerex is the distributor for Diana.
