I recently purchased the typhoon, and was amazed at the weight of such a small looking weapon. The three great things are 1}The cocking aid makes it possible for weaklings to use. 2}calibration to your personal sight is only twenty shots at most from perfect. 3}It really does pack a punch for the price and look. So if your coming back to pistols or starting something new, this is a great choice for you. I can only assume the problems other people have had is due to bad maintenance or misuse of… Read Full Review

Good: Some people may consider this as a bad thing but i for one disagree and this is to do with the weight the webley typhoon has a bit of a heft to it and i very much like this as it proves that it is extremely good quality....this second point is not so much about the gun but the accessorie you should recive with the gun it looks like a silencer but in actual fact is a cocking aid that you place over the barrel and really makes it possible to cock the gun easiely
Bad: there are not many… Read Full Review

I bought the Webley Typhoon about three months ago. The gun itself, although slightly heavy seemed a good investment. It was a powerful pistol and i expected it to last for years with its simplicity.
I had a good hour of target shooting the other day to find that every time i cocked the weapon it would fire without me pulling the trigger, even with the safety catch on.
I have dismantled the gun, cleaned and lubed all the relevent parts.. I cant find any obvious fault apart from some of the… Read Full Review

the webley typhoon is a good all rounder, its not the alecto so dont expect it to be amazing for target shooting especially as it packs quite a punch(the recoil is quite bad unless you give it the death grip).but that said its a decent enough gun and well worth the 60 pounds that i spent on it plus it will probably last forever… Read Full Review

This is the second air pistol I have owned. The first bought days ago was an SMK of some description, that kept jamming and the trigger didnt pull at some points, so i took it back and got a webley typhoon instead. All in all this is a MUCH better gun. Mine is the .22 version and after reading some of these reviews (granted written 3 years before mine) i think they have sorted out the above mentioned issues. The sight does zero at approx 10 meters as i was able to shoot the but off a cigarette… Read Full Review

I bought one of these guns yesterday for targets and humane dispatch of wounded prey. I prefer spring guns for their simplicity and no need for CO2 bulbs every five minutes. I wanted a Weirauch HW40 but it was out of my price range and so are similar. I discounted the bottom Gamo and SMK end of the market as plinkers and under-power.
I saw this model in the shop and for the money thought it would be a good buy and personally I think it is. I did not seem to have found any of the issues… Read Full Review

Well I've just bought the newest version last weekend, owned a couple of pistols before including a Hurricane, which I loved. It's been 20yrs since my last pistol and I bought this because the price was good and I wanted to get my kids out of the house. I'm impressed, not sure why there is so much negativity, I had to take a few shots to get the sights lined up to suit my vision, but with not having used a pistol in 2 decades I still managed to centre a paper target a number of times. I bought… Read Full Review

2007 Turkey made model - brought this Webley Typhoon as a first air pistol on a bit of a whim with no research - felt very solid and £70 was thought quite reasonable compared to other pistols on display -but basically NOT a good pistol - instead of solid read very heavy - sights awful - very innacurate even with a red dot sight - pellets seem to fly off in all directions except where aimed (despite screwing the recoil part to stock as suggested in earlier review)- the recoil jolt managed to… Read Full Review

i agree fully with all that,s been said,but i have also had trouble with the Webley Typhoon front sight being out of balance to one side. The old models certainly have my vote of preference… Read Full Review

I am in the fun fair business and i bought 5 webley typhoon air pistols , and within the first hour of using them one started to jam, and within the first 3 days 2 wAs conpletly out of action! i returned them the shop where i purchased them, and then finally 5 weeks later they replaced them! i used them for one day and i now have 2 jamming when cocking and one wont hold when loading... i think webley needs to do something about these pistols!!!!!! another problem is that webley do not have any… Read Full Review

Might look good but its a piece of junk, bought it on a friday. back in the shop on saturday. paid a little more for a weirauch hw 40. worth every penny extra. Its noisy. heavy, unbalanced, uncomfortable grip, if you shoot left handed the safety catch sticks in your hand… Read Full Review

I tried one of these Webley Typhoons at a local airgun shop and after shooting it I can say this is the worst air pistol I ever shot. Even the less expensive Chinese pistols shoot better. I have been shooting air guns for over 45 years and This is not the old Webley Quality of years back.This gun needs a re design to bring it up to putting the Webley name on it… Read Full Review

The first thing to strike me about this gun was the plastic sights, bulky poor quality plastic sights with poor adjustment, upon cocking the gun I noticed that the semi recoil moved considerably and this caused problems when firing as it begins to move as you pull the trigger.
Targeting the pistol it became immediately apparent that the pistol was seriously under power to the point that it was dangerous to use, a pistol that can not piece a back stop and rebounds the pellets is a dangerous gun… Read Full Review

If you want to turn this gun from a lucky bag toy into a proper serious pistol, just drill and screw the front of the stock both sides to lock it! 100% better...... try polishing the trigger mech too feels much smoother… Read Full Review

I have turned my Webley Typhoon from a badly made lucky bag toy into a great air pistol by simply drilling and countersinking two holes at the front of the stock and locking it with two screws (looks very proffesional).
Try it now! 100% better! they should have just moulded the stock as one solid piece and not wasted time developing the rubbish recoil that does not work… Read Full Review

This Webley was made in Turkey and it resembles a hair drier and it is no where near the quality of the older models, and the barrel break action is not as easy to cock as the over the barrel Webley's. I still bought one for my collection anyway IF YOU'RE A PURIST THIS AIR GUN IS NOT FOR YOU… Read Full Review

I bought the new Typhoon just a month ago, and I love it. It fires well, and it can penetrate a paperback book to a depth of ninety five pages at a distance of 18 feet. And could hit the target at 30 feet with some impact… Read Full Review
