General Comments
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 performance was impressive, as was the down range accuracy. I had no problems in dispatching any of the vermin that I was asked to deal with.



With regard to handling the rifle is a bit heavy compared to modern brake barrels but you can get used to that.



I would recommend this rifle to anyone who wants to get into the sport, as it is a very rugged and simple rifle to learn the principles of good safe shooting.
