Description - RWS 48:
When RWS first introduced the Model 48, we expected it to become a classic. What was unexpected was its rapid rise to classic status among knowledgeable air gunners. At 900 FPS , this rifle propels pellets at .22 rim-fire velocities! This tremendous power is generated by the use of a very robust spring piston power plant cocked by a side lever action. The action is mounted into an extended beech stock to reduce felt recoil and to aid in achieving accuracy potential. Not designed for the faint of heart, this is one impressive air arm, both in performance and presence. It fulfills its purpose as a potent, full-size sporting airgun suitable for either pest control or field target shooting, yet it does so with both balance and grace. The substantial one-piece stock allows for comfortable offhand shooting and adds to the overall sensation that the Model 48 is a force to be reckoned with. The rifle is fitted with a finely rifled, fixed barrel system loaded via sliding breech opening. Its full accuracy potential can be realized by the use of a quality RWS airgun scope mounted to the scope rail. Other standard features include an adjustable trigger, an adjustable rear sight, and an automatic safety. Lifetime warranty.

Great fixed barrel springer - Wow
April 28, 2012
Great accuracy and very good power. Nice compact rifle with a balanced feel. Its' balance lets you forget its weight. Cocking effort fine for the power. I also have a RWS 34P which is nice but I cannot quite get the accuracy with the 34P that I can out of the RWS 48. AIRGUN DEPOT CUSTOMER SERVICE IS WONDERFUL. I received a rare RWS 48 with an accuracy issue and they replaced it very quickly with great service and a smile. THIS COMPANY IS CUSTOMER FOCUSED WITH GREAT PRICING AND GREAT SERVICE. THEY GET FIVE STARS ALSO....
Accuracy with power and quality workmanship. Plenty of tuning options - I will keep mine stock until it wears out.
Nothing. Don't give up on springers you just need to find the hold.

Top Of The Line Airgun!
February 24, 2014
I received this RWS combo with the Hawk scope about a week ago. This gun is awesome! I used to target shoot a lot with my 10-22 Ruger but never with airguns. Shortage on ammo led me to the airguns. I should of got into this hobby along time ago. This gun is solid and tight right out of the box. The pictures below show my shot group at 20 yds. A dime covers the 5 shots on the target. I was using the JSB Exact 15.89 gr. with the shot group in the pics. The Crosman Premier hollow points do very well also. The JSB's seem to hold a tighter group but the Crosman's will hold tight in a 2" circle at that range also. I am very pleased with this purchase. Price is a little high but you definitely get what you pay for on these guns. The Hawk scope has held tight so far and I have shot over 500 rounds through the gun. For a springer I don't think I could have picked a better gun. The customer support at Airgun Depot is great too! I will definitely buy from this company again!
Accuracy, Well Built, Great for Target Shooting & Hunting Small Game. Great All Around Gun.

RWS 48 with Hawke Upgrade .22
February 19, 2014
Excellent product. This was my first major air gun purchase and I am very pleased. With the Crosman Premier Domed 14.3 grain pellets I am getting excellent accuracy past 25 yards. JSB Diabolo 15.89 grain give the same accuracy but are a little more expensive. The Hawke scope upgrade was well worth the investment. Excellent optics that can be focused down to less than 10 yards. With the etched reticle, chances of crosshair failure is lessened.
Well made product. Lifetime warranty in the USA.
As with air guns, it is heavy.

Very Accurate, Solid feel, great trigger

Got the combo on sale, Hawke Scope and lock down mount. Great value. Lots of power, very accurate, love the trigger, very light and easy.
Good weight for target shooting, very balanced. Scope is awesome. Trigger is very, very smooth. Light triggers work well for me.
pretty hard to cock the gun with the side lever. My 19 yr old daughter struggled.

Awesome Gun! Awesome Service!
June 27, 2013
This was my first time ordering a gun from this company. My gun arrived as scheduled in excellent condition. The RWS 48 .22 caliber air rifle is simply amazing! This gun came with an upgraded 4x12x50 Hawke scope that was even better than I expected. I was able to hit a 4inch circle at a hundred yards with the first hundred pellets and without the scope being completely sighted in. The RWS and Airgun Depot have exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend both. I will definitely begin using Airgun Depot in the future for my gun needs.
Easy online shopping, great prices, and no issues with shipping and handling
Gun could be lighter and by ordering online you have to wait to receive the gun from a shipping company.

All I can say is Wow !!
June 8, 2013
June 8, 2013 I have owned several pellet guns over the years including the Beeman R1. This new addition is really nice and shoots excellent right out of the box. The mount went on easy, scope is perfect and the groups are,,,, WOW! Love the combination. I will follow with a full report as I get more shots through the gun. I have 1" cedar boards that the pellet passed right through without any problem. The ballistic charts show this gun is just about twice the energy at 50 yards as my R1 is with .177 cal. So excellent for hunting and penetration at longer distances especially with the Exact Jumbo Heavy Diabolo pellets at 18.13 grains. I did weeks of research before I ordered this gun, and I believe I made the right choice.
Accuracy, quality, penetration, easy cocking, warranty, German made, easy set up.

A .22 twin to my .177
May 10, 2013
Wanted an air rifle in a heavier-hitting caliber. Purchased the .22 cal RWS Model 48 based on years of satisfaction with the .177 model. Very happy with the quality, reliability, durability and accuracy.
Excellent build quality. Great accuracy.
Only minor wish the stock was pre-drilled for sling studs.

my first RWS air rifle
December 1, 2009
This is a beautifully made air rifle. This is a good combo. I have no problem with the scope that it comes with. This is also a very accurate gun. As I was zeroing the scope, it made a very small group on the target. I had a problem with my first gun, but had corrected the problem in a relatively reasonable amount of time. This is a great gun for the price.

update on the m48
June 22, 2009
Today is the 22nd of June 09, I'd like to let anyone who my be interested in buying this combo package to do so. The Leepers scope is perfectly suited to this rifle. I rezeroed my rifle at 30yrds and the mil dots seem to be at 30yrds as well, I haven't even fired 100rnds thru the rifle yet and I've already taken three of our floppy eared friends two at 90yrds and one at 65 yrds with one shot to the head and yes I said ninety yards with crossman pointed pellets and they completely passed thru the heads of these critters at that distance, so if anyone is wondering about the power or accuracy and quality of these rifles Airgun Depot has put together an excelient combo package on this one buy one while you can.

rws m48
June 8, 2009
I got my 48 today and I just couldn't begin to tell you what a good deal these guns are for the money. I bought the shooters kit for 399$ in 22cal and believe me you get alot for your money. Exelent quality, I have several RWS rifles and can't tell you enough good things about them accuracy,power.and craftsmanship. You get it all with these guns,my new 48 sighted in in five shots at 10yrds with crossman copperheads pointed pellets,I've fired six other types of pellets all with good results. This rifle is a tack drive just like the other RWS guns I have. I do have a few Bams a 21 in 22cal garbage compared to the 48 I found this out the hard way dumped a ton of money into the 21 tryin to make it a 48, it cost me 5 scopes so far do to recoil the 48 is smoth as glass in comparison so buy a 48 save yourself alot of grief an money,good deal on this gun thanks guys.

Does this come with the T06 trigger?

By ted from the road on July 19, 2012
I just purchased a HK3019 4-12 X 50 w/ mil-dot. as part of a package from Airgun Depot. It is mounted on a RWS 48 .22 air rifle pellet. There is no specification section indicating this scope is rated for air rifles am I OK? also there is no mention in the manual about battery replacement as to what battery. I would like to have a spare or two on hand. I assume the battery compartment is in the turret even though there is a different arrangement shown. Also, is there a setting on the reticle illumination that turns it off to conserve battery power? Please advise. The scope has pretty good optics considering it's price point, and I'm comparing it to a $500 Leupold. Should be more than adequate for my intended purpose.
Nice product. Thank you for your attention.
