How about the 48 in .177 cal, im looking for a long range bommer maybe 200yards out. I got a 34 in .22cal and looking for the longer hard shot.

Hi termitkiller
<br/>
<br/>Well first of all, this is NOT MY OPINION, these are facts and facts that are published by the manufacturer DIANA itself. You wanna take a look? go to : www.diana-airguns.de and see for yourself :) The 460 magnum seems to be a little under the 350 magnum in fps. Many say that RWS give overrated velocities ,just to sell its Diana products....marketing you know ;) It happens...

Im a little confused, why ask the weight of mod. 48 in .22/.25 cal. when considering mod. 350 in .177/.22 cal.? I think Jerry gave very good advice in recommending the 460 mag. Fileyn, you mentioned the mod 460 gets 1150 fps in .177 cal. Then you say the mod 350 is Dianas most powerful rifle? How you come up with that? You saying the mod 350 is not also overrated in fps? I believe RWS/Diana air rifles are top- notch and the mod 350 is a great rifle, but are you saying you can get more fps with the 350 than the 460?

No worries Jerry :) I know that this is a question that requires a bit of technical knowledge or just someone who has checked on the internal parts of any RWS airgun not necessary a 350. But surely the part numbers of a 350, are different than those of a 34 or 48 for instance...
<br/>Thanx for your time man :)

Well Jerry, go to DIANA website...you will find that a 460 magnum shoots at 1150 fps in 0.177 cal and not 1350 fps...RWS invented these high velocity numbers from nowhere to sell its DIANA products.The most powerful Diana to date is the 350 magnum.....the 460 magnum is just a new technology (under lever)...check the Diana website :)
<br/>Any way jerry i may plan to buy a used 350 ....is there any way i could find that the internal parts (spring...etc..) are the original ones? Are there any codes or numbers written on the parts? And if possible,could you send a picture showing the spring chamber of a 350 (hammer spring ,valve spring.,main spring .etc) ..connected ?
<br/>
<br/>THANKS!

Hey jerry thanks for the reply :) I asked just because i think i will get a RWS 350 magnum classic anytime soon....and wanted to know which cal to choose, .177 or .22, but since they are about the same weight, i think I'll go for the .22. And i heard more than once that these air guns can hit targets at 100 yards, thanks to their long barrel.

Hi fileyn, I don't think the 25 cal is heavier then the 22 cal M48 RWS, I haven't weight them but they feel the same, but if you want to make them lighter, take the barrel sleeve off the barrel, just take the front sight off the end of the barrel, and the sleeve slips off the barrel, then you got a free floating barrel pretty neat I think, that is what I did, since I shoot only with a scope i left off my front sight and put a muzzle break on it, looks pretty good. Good shooting, Jerry.

Hello Jerry,
<br/>Since you have tried the same airgun with 2 different calibers,have u noticed a difference in weight between DIANA MODEL 48 .22 and .25 cal? Isn't the .25 cal supposed to be heavier?
<br/>Thanx

I agree with termitekiller, yes the 22 m48 is a better long range gun then the 25 cal m48 RWS, i still wasn't satisfied with either gun so i got a 22 cal condor it goes through 3/4 plywood at 30 yards and is verry accurate , if you want long range and power thats the gun i would get, i shoot at 30 to 60 yards with it, thats for squirrel hunting, i am just getting around to fine tune it but this is the one i probably use all the time, i really love it. i will do a complete review on it after squirrel season to pick out any flaws in it if it has any.

Ok. Back to the mod. 48 in .25 cal. Very accurate gun, as RWS seems to always be. I bought one years ago, but was not happy with the power. .22 cal. is the way to go with the 48. I have shot many pellets through both calibers and in my opinion, the .22 is way more powerful than the .25. I should add that I am just saying this of the mod 48, if your looking at Webley Patriots, the 25 is more powerful than 22.

Yes mark i agree with you , at 200 yards you need a hi power rifle like a 223 traveling at 3200 fps, but an air rifle is for people who like to enjoy their hunting trip, not to kill a bunch of critters, i enjoy the hunt, honeing my hunting skill, sneaking up on my critter, all camoed up, getting close as i can, then when i am sure i can take the squirrel with a clean shot, then if i want to then i take my shot, if i kill it i eat it, i dont kill anything i dont eat, i love the sport and i love eating them i really enjoy hunting with a air rifle, anyone can hunt with a hipower rifle at 200 yards, but it takes real skill to do it with a Springer. jerry.

That's correct. There are no air rifles that are able to shoot accurately and with enough power to kill much of anything at 200 yards. I have a Gamo 1250 also. From the reviews that I've read its a faster gun than the RWS 350 Mag. They are both rated at the same velocities but the 350 Mag. Test shot the 1250 fps with a 6.5 grain pellet, and the Gamo 1250 did it with a 7.5 grain pellet. Doesn't sound like a lot of difference, but it is. An airgun will lose approx, 80 to 100 fps with each grain of weight. So the RWS would actually shoot at 1150 to 1170 fps with the same pellet as the Gamo 1250. From the research I've done this (Gamo 1250) is currently the most powerful spring piston airgun available. Even beats the Webly Patriot. As the other comment said, the killing range for most critters with this gun is about 60 yards. It is possible to take out pests at longer ranges but the pellet is so light, that beyond 60 yards the velocity drops off very quickly. It would most likely just wound.
<br/> In order to kill squirrels at 200 yards, a .177 cal pellet would need to be fired at about 2500 fps. Even if such a gun existed, the small fragile pellet would disintegrate under such extreme forces.

sporty, the m48 17 cal rws air rifle wouldn't be any good at 200 yards, i don't know of any air rifle that would shoot that far, i have a gamo 1250 and its max killing range is 60 yards on squirrels, its a 17 cal, i just got a 22 cal rws m48 and i limit my shots to 40 yards for squirrels, thats my max killing range, in a springer gun i believe a 350 rws or 1250 gamo is the most powerful air rifle you can get or that i know of, but at a 100 yards would be pushing the limit on killing anything with the 1250or 350 in my opinon. by the way what are you shooting at, at 200 yards. JERRY.
