★★★★★

“I got hold of one of these Webley Vulcan rifles to do...”

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

Good Points
Robust construction, easy to aim, easy to maintenance

Bad Points
Can wear if not regularly greased at the swivel pin

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.

Thekid1992's Response to Shetishooter's Review

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!

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!

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/>Good luck.
