Try John Knibbs or TW Chambers (search the internet for phone No. & address) for a rear sight. Like you I've had mine since 1980, I've not had an issue with spare parts using these two vendors.

Jam at the barrel! The only way you can jam a Vulcan at the barrel is being careless in how you put the pellet in the barrel-would you care to clarify?

Written on: 11/08/2006 by tallguy606 (6 reviews written)

Got a used .177 Webley Vulcan and am quite impressed. Has typical Webley quality, deep shiny blue, excellent fit of parts, excellent machining. Overall look is quite similar to Classic FWB124. Don't have chrony but previous owner claimed 858 fps with Gamo hunter pellets, seems about right. I like every thing about the gun, but be careful loading pellets in the breech. They just drop in, don't have a press fit like my HW rifles, be careful it doesn't fall out when closing barrel or you'll… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2006 by Shetishooter (2 reviews written)

I got hold of one of these Webley Vulcan rifles to do some pest control work and found it to be very poor, so I decided to strip it down to see what was wrong, with what should be a good rifle.

I found that the main spring and piston had becomed gubbed up with a accumulation of dirt and old grease.

Athough the rifle is no longer in production I had no problems in getting spares, so after a complete set of seals, pins, and main spring the rifle was rebuilt.

On testing the improvement in the… Read Full Review

Thekid1992's Response to Shetishooter's Review

Written on: 21/09/2006

I recently bought a webley vulcan .22 of someone I know, the quality of the rifle is excellent however there are a few problems. One, the barrel appears to be jammed up pretty bad and nothing is going through it (with a working air rifle you should you be able to see down the barrel, as in look through it and see light at the other end?), I'm a little scared though of taking it apart as I'm not sure if I would be able to put it back together again! Any advice would be helpful, thank you!

Written on: 23/03/2008

I would have to disagree with the allegation that the Vulcan is a heavy rifle compared to modern break barrels. A bit of research will reveal that the Vulcan is as light as a HW95 and would probably pass the Goldilocks test!

Tenuc's Response to Shetishooter's Review

Written on: 05/11/2006

To get the jambed pellets out you just need to partly open it, then put some thin PTFE oil in the breach loading hole and leave its barrel down for a few hours. Push a piece of of 5mm wooden dowel into the breach, which should be about 30 mm longer than the barrel, until you feel the obstruction. Tap the end of the dowel gently to get the pellets moving and they will soon be out.
<br/>
<br/>Good luck.

Written on: 11/11/2005 by Vulcanator (13 reviews written)

I purchased the Webley Vulcan air rifle (the mk1 version) when I was 16, and used it to exterminate the local bird and pest population, which it did with great effect! I find the rifle to be accurate and quite durable. I left the UK in 1988, and left it in my gun cabinet for almost 17 years.

I had the opportunity to bring it to the US where I now live, and the blueing is still in great condition, and I shoot 10 shot 1-1.25" groups at 25 yards with open sights.

I've never had any problems… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/10/2005 by Moley61 (4 reviews written)

I could not get a test of any gas ram rifle so I bought the first (cheapish) gun that I could fit a gas ram to. It's a .22 Webley Vulcan Mk3 of unknown age or history. I followed the instructions to the letter(never having done anything like this before) and it took me about an hour to fit with no more tools than any home mechanic would have ie; screwdrivers, hacksaw, pliers. I bought a Combro CB625 to check any difference between the spring and gas ram. With unsorted Webley Lazapells the… Read Full Review

I submitted this as a review of the Theoben Gas Ram, I have no idea why it ended up here, as you can see it's very similar to my review of the Webley Vulcan already posted.

Written on: 23/08/2005 by Moley61 (4 reviews written)

I bought a .22 Vulcan secondhand about a year ago. I have no idea of its history or age though I'm sure from visiting the Webley website that it is a Mk 3.
I have fitted a silencer (moderator) and a Theoben Gas Ram which transformed the rifle making it much smoother and more consistently accurate although it was good with the coil spring.
Theoben advertise the shorter 'lock time' of a Gas Ram as a good thing, I agree. This is the time between you squeezing the trigger and the pellet leaving the… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/09/2004 by mjwr57 (5 reviews written)

High quality for what it cost. Ultra short barrel makes for easy 1" groups at 40 yards. Very quiet at shooters end, action clicks rather than twangs or thumps. Superb for vermin shooting. Spares inexpensive - new spring under a tenner. My first choice air rifle. I don't know if these are still available now (got mine in 1996) but if you find a good 2nd hand example, snap it up!… Read Full Review

I've had my Webley Vulcan Carbine for 8 years now and it's still absolutely awesome. I've had others but this is still my best shot/favourite weapon of all. Since having this master piece I've added a few items such as an antler scope and some silencer, I get about 2-3 magpies before they know what's happening. excellent… Read Full Review
