This item is not eligible for coupon discountsThe RWS 52 is the action of the RWS 48 dressed up in a Monte Carlo beech stock (one inch longer) with a sculpted cheekpiece. For better control, they've added checkering to the grip and forearm. The changes in the stock configuration make an already-great gun even better. Loading is done through a sliding breech mechanism. Like the 48, this rifle can be used for field target, plinking, hunting, target shooting and spinners. This sidelever spring-piston rifle is popular among airgunners who want the best of all worlds: affordability, power and accuracy.

the power, accuracy, and overall quality! it has a ratcheting safety catch when you cock it. "witch means, "if you loose your grip and your hand slips while youre cocking it" it wont damage your rifle. automatic safety too. just about everything except the trigger.Things I would have changed:
the trigger needs to be made out of metal. some adjustable fiber optic sights would be nice for use without a scope. stud mounts installed at the factory would be nice too, this gun is heavy. make one in .20 and .25 cal. with velocity ratings at 1000fps in .20cal and 800fps in .25cal. preferably.What others should know:
put a good scope and mounts on this gun. i have a 4-16X40 tactical illuminated mill dot ajustable objective scope and some steel mounts on mine. i also put locktite on the screws. this gun has recoil, its a precision machine, that is really capable of dialing the distance. this gun has power in spades, "not a toy!". mine is in 22 cal., at 30 yards mine blows through 3/8" plywood with a crossman wadcutter pellet, printing 10 shot quarter size groups. i shot a 4 1/4 lb rabbit at 67 yards with an "old style" daisy double ring pointed pellet. the pellet took out both lungs and nicked the heart. the rabbit never moved from the spot i shot him from.the pellet almost came through the other side of the hide, there was a bulge. mine really likes pellets in the 13 to 15 grain range. this is not a carry all day in the field pellet gun, it's a get into position and snipe gun. mine really likes the crossman feild and target dommed pellets. for hunting up to 30 yards i use 14.3 grain wadcutters, 30-50 yards i use dommed pellets 50-75 yards i use pointed pellets. i do not recomend shooting anything beyond 75 yards, because the pellets energy declines rapidly beyond that. however, when the wind is right, i have knocked over empty tin cans at 100 yards. if you want an excellent fixed barrel spring piston pellet rifle, this is the one to get. worth every penny! buy this one, very satisfied with mine. here!
I bought this gun about 15 years ago. It is my first quality airgun and have no regrets at all. I have the .177 cal. At the time, I thought it cost a fortune for an air rifle, but the way it shoots make it worth every cent. It seems to like every type of pellet I've fed it. It shoots an inch at 50 yards with iron sites. (more me than the gun) I have about 5000 rnds thru it without a hitch. I just bought a Chrony to really check out this rifle and my firearm reloads. The iron sites are excellent considering many firearms. This thing takes crows at 40 to 50 yards and drops them like a bag of rocks. I'm looking at adding another RWS today.Things I would have changed:
The downside for me, so far is scope mounting. I have yet to find the right scope and mount for this rifle. I'm sure the equipment exists, I just haven't found it. I can't get the scope to stay put long enough to site it in. I put an inexpensive 'airgun' BSA scope on it and that lasted about 20 rnds. None of the rnds hit within 5"s of the other. The eye relief bounced back and forth wildly, that's how I knew it was the scope/mount combo more than anything else. I have a .300 Win Mag that has no problem at all. My search for the right scope/mount combo continues so I can unleash the real potential of this rifle.What others should know:
Find the right scope/mount for this gun. I'm sure it will shoot M.O.A. Save the money if that's an issue, but buy this gun, you won't regret it.
packaging was excellent-delivery time was fast. apparently high quality. accuracy good with CP 14.3 domes.Things I would have changed:
maybe slim down the stock a littleWhat others should know:
this is a large, heavy airgun--seems almost like over kill. It is certainly not for youngsters. buy it on sale and it is a great value.
