The Men's 25 metre rapid fire pistol event at the 2012 Olympic Games was held on 2 and 3 August 2012 at the Royal Artillery Barracks.

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 40 shots. They were presented in eight series of 5 shots each, with each series being limited to 4 seconds to make all five shots. After the 4th round, the competitor with the lowest score was eliminated for each round resulting in the top 2 fighting for gold in the last round.The total score from all 40 shots was used to determine final ranking.
