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: 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

Things I liked: T-06 trigger is very good. Accuracy is excellent in my book. Overall quality is very good. I wanted to try a fixed barrel .22 gun from Germany or UK for the sake of accuracy. It is very accurate by my standards, once the pellet choice is figured out. .

Things I would have changed: This gun is a bit heavy but it's not ridiculous. This probably adds to the stability and thus the accuracy. Also, this is the loudest springer I own, but, again, not too bad. I would like to see a shrouded barrel, like my Benji NP, to quiet it down a bit. Yes, I know - weight.

What others should know: When I first received the Model 48, I was astonished by all the noise and roughness when cocking it. This is quality? Not compared to my Beeman R-9 it's not. Came very close to sending it back. Ceasar, in Texas, suggested I shoot it some more first. So, I cleaned up some sharp edges, applied some oil to the spring and moly grease to the bolt and started to shoot. It is now much better and getting better. I like it - a lot. It's now nearly as good as an old, old Model 52 (.177) I have. The best pellet for me has been the JSB Exact 13.4 gr. The Crosman Brown Box Premiers are also very good and, surprisingly, so are the inexpensive, off the shelf Crosman Premier domes, 14.3 gr. I don't now why, but the heavier JSB Jumbo Heavies, (18.1 gr,). group well, but actually impact about 3" higher, at 27 yrds, than anything else I tried. Go figure! Bottom line is that this is now my favorite and most accurate .22 air rifle and I am a happy camper!

Things I liked: This gun is amazing... Quality of material and craftsmanship is top notch. I was very surprised at the accuracy and power. Scoped the gun weighs around 11lbs which for me is a little heavy for freehand shooting but with the assistance of a shooting stick I am able to get remarkable, consistent accuracy. 25yd head shots on squirrels and the 14.5 gr domed pellet exits the other side. Overall, very pleased I made the investment.

Things I would have changed: Nothing.

What others should know: I have other springer's in the lower price range and still enjoy shooting, but the 48 is certainly now my favorite hunting riffle.

  • 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.

  • Rudedawg from USA asked:

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

    • Harry from USA:

      Yes it will dispatch most game with proper round placement, which is difficult at distance with this airgun. The round nose ammo are not as effective as hollow point as the latter have more expansion and internal damage than the round point.

    • Grayland from USA:

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