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 about the 48 is fantastic...but it's accuracy and trigger are most note worthy.

Things I would have changed: Nothing... maybe include swivel sling mounts with purchase

What others should know: I purchased the RWS 48 in .22 more than ten years ago to use for pest control on our farm. Essentially all I do with it is shoot rabbits between 15-70 yards. It has a 3X9X32 Leapers scope which is completely adequate. I have run in excess of 10,000 pellets (premier domes) through this rifle in conditions that are far from ideal and I still functions flawlessly although I suppose it does look it's age now. For dispatching pests and small game I doubt you will find anything more accurate or reliable. I only shoot paper when adjusting the scope, but when I do I am always impressed by the groups it is capable of even with my less than stellar marksmanship. At a rest at 50 yards I can almost always get 5 shoots into something the size of a quarter. If you can afford the $500 price tag and you are willing to take good care of it I would strongly recommend you purchase this rifle.

Things I liked: This rifle is solid and extremely accurate. I have a 22 cal with an older hawke varmint 2-10 half mil scope on it and I regularly shoot golf balls off tees at 100 yards with it. Mine love H&N field target trophies in 14.66 grain. I cannot say enough good things about this rifle, it is the airgun responsible for starting my addiction.

Things I would have changed: The loading is a little cantankerous. It would be nice to have a little more room for fat fingers and the lever that keeps the piston from coming back up, while a wonderful safety feature, does take some getting used to.

What others should know: This rifle is heavy, its a bit bulky, and it has a fixed barrel these all lend to its tremendous accuracy. This is my one airgun I can bench and treat like a powder burner rifle when I shoot it. If you are new to airguns I highly recommend this rifle due to its rather significant lack of hold sensitivity. This rifle and a few tins of 14.66 grain field target trophy pellets will keep you happy for quite some time.

Things I liked: Workmanship, power, accuracy, fairly easy to cock, and looks. This is one fine rifle. The T06 trigger is wonderful and lets you extract the potential of this gun. Shoots 14.3 ammo at 860fps and for a springer that's moving folks. It can hit anything you can see within 50 yards, the limit of my backyard range.

Things I would have changed: Only one thing. I would add checkering or stippling so it's not so slippery. The stock is smooth as glass which can make it hard to get a good grip.

What others should know: This gun has some spring twang. I installed a Vortek tune kit which eliminated the twang. With an LDC installed the gun becomes very quiet. So quiet that at first I thought something inside had broken making it shoot with less power. A few shots over the chrony confirmed that it was shooting at full power and nothing was broken. It sounds like a low power BB gun with the LDC on. This is a heavy gun so probably not a good choice for field carry unless your built like a gorilla.
