If you are into airgun hunting with a springer, then nothing will come close to a Webley Patriot in .25cal. Just blasts any creature you are supposed to hunt with an airgun.
Never mind whether it is that tiny head shot. Just hit the animal/bird, and it's dead. As other reviews suggest, a Theoben gas ram conversion is available, so no more arguments about how long the spring will last (it will probably outlast the purchaser) but with the gas ram, cocking effort will climb to 55lbs. Excellent... (read more)

The Webley Patriot/Kodiak is a great gun but it requires more care than some (both maintenance and shooting technique). Because of its weight, it's sensitive to bumps and jars. As with all spring-air guns never slam the breech shut or -shudder- pull the trigger with the breech open. The Patriots massive spring WILL bend the barrel. If you use a scope, get a good scope. This gun will turn most scopes into pretty paperweights. Make sure your scope is rated for super magnum airguns. Recoil is a... (read more)

I consider the Webeley Patriot to be the finest, spring-piston, .25 caliber break barrel air rifle around. It's power is in the 27-30ftlb range, and it features remarkable accuracy out to beyond 50 yards. It is capable of taking most types of North American small game and varmnits. Even coyotes could be despatched at under 30 yards with proper shot placement. It's quality is unequalled for it's astonishingly low price of $430, making it, in my opinion at least, the best big bore air rifle... (read more)

I own an aa310 and a pro sport. both fac rated. A friend of mine has rapid 7 hw77 hw80 22 rimfire all on ticket.
He bought a Webley Patriot air gun secondhand. Whilst it was fairly consistant over the crono it was rubbish beyond 30 yds - too much recoil. I tried it and found it to be the same. There are many good, high powered springers out there now. Dont buy one of these. They're rubbish, full stop....................................................... (read more)

The Webley Patriot air gun never failed to impress me, whether I was shooting through 1 inch pine or shooting empty shot gun shells at fifty yards.
The gun does require a firm grip for good accuracy and a test to determine the most accurate pellet but the gun will shoot any thing from #3 buck shot to beeman kodiak in to a half inch group at thirty yards, except beeman's laser pellet or any pellet with a flat head and light wieght.
Velocity, the gun would shoot cromagnum pellets at 695 fps... (read more)

I read the other reviews and laughed. Has anyone who owns a Patriot ever shot anything else? In all my time of shooting I have never shot a worse high powered rifle. Accuracy is a joke, never produces what webley claimed ( 30ft/lbs) most produce 20-22 . Try a Air arms pro-elite at 22ft/lb , it will blow a patriot into the dust. Maybe thats why Patriots have been selling in the UK for less than £100 secondhand ? (read more)

The Webley Patriot air rifle has been held within my family for 22 years.
We hold the .22 version. It is accurate and easy to hold. It is also easy to reload with the break barrel. For its age it is in good condition and shows that it can be easily maintained. I give this rifle an overall rating of 9/10 (read more)
