triballofts's review of Webley Longbow

★★★★★

“Bought second hand in .22 cal, a bit rough at first...”

Written on: 14/11/2006 by triballofts (3 reviews written)

Good Points
Very well balanced, good weight, resettable safety catch, barrel threaded for many silencers.

Bad Points
None

General Comments
Bought second hand in .22 cal, a bit rough at first but what a difference it made with the following maintenance: stripped and polished, new piston seal, v-mach spring and top hat installed, re-lubed. It is now one of the nicest springers that I have ever shot and I've shot a lot. The recoil is sweet, a nice nudge as it was quite sharp before, now it's very well balanced and the weight helps with the recoil, its very accurate for a springer. It's a brilliant hunting rifle, mine now shoots at 11.4 and is very smooth on loading. The barrel, being 1/2 unf thread, gives you the choice of plenty of silencers, the safety catch is in a really good place and is also resettable. Some are not and need re-cocking to set safety. Overall the Longbow it is very well made, it has good metal, the barrel pin is very good with thick shims each side and a lockable hinge pin. It's very much like the Venom conversion on the hw 80s, all in all its one of the best springers that I have tuned and worked on, its a pity Webley have now finished.

Do you know if the new Webley Longbow still comes with the Lothar Walther barrel (in .22)?
