Top Picks


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 1110fps in .177 (750 mps), (.22 up to 900 fps). 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 hearted, 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.

Came with stripped-out screws on the butt pad. Easy fix, but we started off on the wrong foot and it went down-hill from there.

Built like a Panzer. The best words I can find to describe it are..... German WW2 Infantry Training Weapon.

I got this mainly for shooting 25 meter bench-rest and also possible pest elimination/hunting, based on its 5 star reputation. I was left very disappointed. Compared to a Diana 34P it has all the grace of a warthog. When cocking it, it has a safety ratchet that makes a sounds like a roller-coaster going up to the top of the first hill. Clang, clang, clang, clang, here I am little bunny! The stock has no checkering, making it slippery when your hands are sweaty or wearing gloves. Rear sight although a solid design, has left to right play in it making it impossible to get any serious accuracy out of it. Also comes equipped with an over-sized front sight just in case you where thinking of mounting a scope. I spent over $100 buying an assortment of recommended pellets. I hate doing the "right pellet" hunt, so after only about 550 rounds through "Olga" (not nearly enough to break her in) I decided we where not compatible. I had tried 4 different mounts and 5 different scopes thinking maybe that was the problem. The best I got out of her was one 3/4 inch group, I just didn't see much potential here. I have cheap Chinese breakbarrels and even a .22 Ruger Air Magnum that can shoot circles around this thing. It really needs a professional tune-up but for this price it should shoot fairly well out of the box. So she got replaced by a Walther LGV Challenger Ultra. After about a 850 round break-in the LGV shoots one hole groups at 25 meters "out the box".

Bought this last year and have had a ball shooting target against my son, friendly completion. At 25 yds you can hit the heads of deck screws. I had only one surprise, when dismantling for cleaning and lubrication I noticed that the stock had a crack near the trigger- nothing you would see from the exterior. Contacted the distributor and sent the stock back, they sent me a new one. No complaints .

All around great combination with consistent accuracy. I see weight mentioned frequently but no statement of what they think it should weight- would a pound really make any difference,I don't believe so.


By JohnUSAMarch 15, 2014

Excellent combo. The scope locks into the rail so it will not move. It has 2 screws the screw down into the rail which prevents the mount from moving back and forth. It shooting 3/4 groups at 60 feet right out of box. This is very excellent gun. Should have brought it sooner. Air gun depot is an excellent place to purchase from.

Great groups


By RoyUSAOctober 25, 2013

I bought this rifle and when it arrived it had an issue with the cocking mechanism. Airgun Depot sent me out a new one and I have had it a little over a year. At 80 yds. I can hit a bell that is about 1.5 inches by 2.0 inches fairly consistently. You do have to figure the artillery hold. You can probably find youtube videos that explain this. For a scope you have to have a droop compensate mount. Overall, one of the best made springers available but it is heavy.

Quality of construction.


By EddieUSAAugust 3, 2013

I was amazed at the overall appearance of this gun. Quality all the way. But then I went to cock it and I have been use to a break barrel and found I needed more power. After about 10 shots it was easier to cock or I was learning how to cock it. Striaght shooting with the iron sights. The barrel has a droop to it so I had to order a different mount and it zeroed right in. Good groups at 30 yards and plenty of power. I had a cheap bullet trap and this was bending the metal with each shot. I then tried it at a 12 ga piece of metal at 75 yards and hit it the first time and put a dent into it. Tree rats beware there is a new sheriff in town. Totally pleased.

Quality and power combined for the perfect gun.


By Stephen K.January 5, 2013

Very sophisticated air rifle. I could not believe the power. As I was sighting it in, I found at 30 yards, the .22 cal 13.4 grain JSB domed pellet penetrated my 1/2" pine target backer, and then penetrated deeply into a cypress fence! And I wondered if this gun would be able to humanely kill squirrels! Also, very high quality, and superb workmanship. I only have one beef. It is a heavy gun. Really, too heavy to carry far into the field.

Excellent workmanship. Extremely powerful, this is no toy!! Very accurate.

Only one thing...too heavy.

By ChunUSANovember 6, 2012

Long story short, my hunter friend took me target shooting and told me that I'll be wasting my ammo trying to shoot over 102yds. I tried to shoot the 186yds target and hit it. He was surprised. He was impressed with the scope also, which the rifle comes with through airgun depot package. I have yet to experience all that this gun could do, but I am very happy with it in the field. I hope to be skillful enough to hunt with it in the future. Good gun.

Good quality, good feel, and shoots far into the target.

I don't have much experience with air rifles, but I think the lever mechanism should be more robust.

By JosephUSAFebruary 2, 2012

My first air pellet gun lasted for 45 years. Squirrels were having a good laugh, watching the pellets miss them. Time for a new pellet gun. Selected with the help from Airgun Depot support. We selected the RWS Model 48 22cal with scope. Once the scope was installed and sighted in. Gun was very accurate. Easy to pump. RWS quality is excellent. This is one serious Pellet gun.

Quality Accuracy

At this time, none

By Bill G.January 5, 2011

The air rifle is as advertised, and is a quality product. With the rifle's iron sights it shoots well and is accurate. The supplied scope is, as best I can tell, a good quality product. There is one fault with the scope - its mounting system places it very high above the stock. I have not been able to rest my cheek on the stock while sighting through the scope - cannot achieve 'cheek weld', and therefore cannot accurately sight the target. I will have to construct a pad to raise the comb of the stock high enough to rest cheek on it. That should allow accurate sighting.

By Gene R.June 16, 2010

I am very happy with this rifle. Very accurate. I especially like the side cocking lever, rather than cocking with the barrel. I did find, however, that the scope that came with the rifle did not stay zeroed in, so I replaced it, after which the rifle stays zeroed in.

Does the stock need to be removed to oil the main spring?

asked mike moore

While I haven't oiled the main spring, according to the owners manual two drops of RWS Chamber Lube every 1000 shots. It is applied through the compression chamber port with a 3 1/2 applicator needle. According to the manual it doesn't look like it is necessary to remove the stock.

Dennis from USA
