A Blast from the Past
April 19, 2013
Webley air pistols have a long history, and are great adult training pistols. They are mechanically accurate but require the shooter to have consistent form and follow through. I have owned several through the years, my eldest Mk I is over 80, and still shoots well. My original Tempest is now over thirty, and I was hoping to get a new one to augment it as my primary practice air pistol. I was disappointed to learn that Webley and Scott had stopped production in the UK in 2005, and that legislation over there has become very restrictive. It was nice to find this reproduction being offered this year. While it is made in Turkey, the Webley centennial compares well to my original Tempest in power and accuracy. It took about 300 rounds to wear in, but since then it has settled down and is now smooth to cock. Like the originals, it requires a bit of a shove. (At first glance, I thought the price was a bit much, but after I adjusted the price for 30 years worth of inflation, I realized that it was about the same relative cost as what the original Tempest set me back in 1980)
Pros:A reproduction of a timeless classic Great power to size ratio A good trainer for firearm shooting--forces you to be consistent in hold and follow through Design has been well proven to last for years
Cons:Not for children, or some smaller adults Not well suited for left handed use, like the original Tempest

Webley Tempest .177cal turkish limited edition Review
December 11, 2012
This is a very good copy of the Webley Tempest that I had that was made in England. I tested this new Tempest and found it to be more powerful than the English made Tempest. It makes holes in a Campbell soup can at 10 meters. The English Tempest made a large dent in the can. It is a little harder to cock thus the spring must be more robust to give the extra velocity. I like this pistol and the quality seems good. I would give this pistol four stars out of five. It's not a Beeman P1 magnum pistol by no means but, for its size it packs a wallop. I feel safe and saying it is probably shooting around 480 feet per second with Beeman silver bear pellets and about 500 fps with Gamo PBA pellets. I like the extra power this Turkish version puts out. First five shoots through this pistol dieseled, probably over oiled at the factory. A few more shots and it smoothed out.
Pros:A lighter trigger pull.
Cons:The black finish on the pistol isn't quite as good as the English Tempest.
