    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 had the guys at Pyramyd do the 20 for $20 and mount the scope. Out of the box I dusted the first squirrel I shot at about 25 yds. Great gun, well made, love the side lever cocking, German quality is excellent.
    Things I would have changed:nothing
    What others should know:still need to bench test the performance for the most accurate pellets

    Things I liked:I have the 22 cal version, mine is 10 years old or so at this point. 1000's of shots, no loss of power noted, smooth cocking and trigger, very accurate with the right pellet. High quality stock, build in general.
    Things I would have changed:narrower front sight would be an improvement, I have a scope mounted so it doesnt matter much now.
    What others should know:purchase the utg scope mount designed for this gun, also sold at pyramydair. Blue locktite the stock screws after a few hundred shots. RWS are pricey, maybe too pricey since other manufacturers have caught up somewhat.

    Things I liked:this is a beautifully crafted masterpiece,which fits in your hand just out of the box.It is as balanced,have crispy trigger and accurate as i have other high end AR with just double of it's cost.This is truly an amazing Air rifle.Mine is in 0.177 and have got 1/2" grouping at 20 yards and 3/4" grouping at 40 yards with 8.2 gr RWS flat head pallets and 3-9x50 Hawk HD scope.
    Things I would have changed:Nothing except Cheek piece,which s/b slightly elevated so as to have proper cheek rest while sight in the scope( used single piece medium height mount)
    What others should know:Since i also practice for 10 M AR competitions,i have pretty good idea about balance ,feel ,comfort and accuracy and this rifle have all.Buy it,you won't regret .It's remarkably as per Diana's legendary commitment towards quality and satisfaction.

    • 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.

      • Jerry from USA:

        Droop rail is not necessary for the fixed barrel

    • Paul 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.
