The Men's 25 metre rapid fire pistol event at the 2008 Olympic Games took place between August 15 and 16 at the Beijing Shooting Range Hall.

The event consisted of two rounds: a qualifier and a final. In the qualifier, each shooter fired 60 shots with a pistol at 25 metres distance. Scores for each shot were in increments of 1, with a maximum score of 10. Targets were presented in series of 5. Each shooter was presented with 12 series, and had a sharply limited time to complete each. Four of the series had to be completed in 8 seconds apiece, four more within 6 seconds, and four within 4 seconds.

The top 6 shooters in the qualifying round moved on to the final round. There, they fired an additional 20 shots. These shots scored in increments of .1, with a maximum score of 10.9. They were presented in four series of 5 shots each, with each series being limited to 4 seconds to make all five shots. The total score from all 80 shots was used to determine final ranking.

After rule changes, new Olympic records were established by Keith Sanderson (qualification round) and Oleksandr Petriv (final), while Ralf Schumann won his fifth Olympic medal in the event.
