I've been told that most of the Stingrays are made in Turkey, unless it has "Made in England" stamped on it. Mine doesnt so guess it is Turkish. Not a problem though because it is well made and feels good when using it.
It is powerful and accurate. Mine chronos at dead on 12 ft/lbs using Daystate FT pellets at 15.9g. the only problem was trying to break it, the lock was really tight - fixed that with a dremel and now its ok. (read more)

I think that the Webley Stingray is an absolutely fantastic air rifle it is definitely worth the money i have already taken it out 4 times and each time i have shot a rabbit every single time they just drop dead and i have also shot a pigeon and that fell off of the lines like a brick also i found the air rifle to be extremely hard to cock to start with but once you have run it in the action becomes much smoother. i have only owned the air rifle about 3 days but already i have fallen in love...

The Webley Stingray is the first air-rifle I have had since a tennager, love the break barrell feels more old fashioned and when the shot is fired (spring only) the kick feel's more gratifying than with a gas-gun. I have recently mounted a Hawke Airmax and with a barrell clamp bipod, even on a short barell length is wonderful. I can score better groupings on a 50p at 30 meters than he can and Toy soldiers ... well its a plastic warzone. (read more)

Webley Stingray. Excellent air gun.
MIne (in .177 cal) will break pennies in half at 15 yards; easily terminates small critters (if that's your thing), and shoots groups inside the size of a dime. Likes most pellets (wad-cutters, hollow points, heavy magnum rounds) equally.
If you can find an original, spend the $400.00+, they're worth every penny. The equivelent (I believe) would be a Beeman R1, R9 or RWS 54.
Heavy, probably too heavy to tote around hunting all day. No easy way to... (read more)

This is my second rifle, and it was certain in my mind thats this would be a very good rifle. I paid £235 for this rifle and that price included a Nikko Sterling Mount Master scope complete with mounts. I believed this price to be very resonable. As a general point though if you see a product that you like at your local dealer, if the price is a little steep than others ask them if they will match the price. The chances are they will agree, and i believe that supporting local trade is very... (read more)

I got the 177 carbine version of the rifle, for £145 new, just before Christmas, I've now fired about 1000 pellets and am really pleased so far.
It's my first air rifle, so am far from an expert. But I find the accuracy to be fine for the type of shooting I do, which is in my back garden (just over 20 yards) at a resettable knock down target.

I have recently aquired this fantastic piece of kit! I bought one from hobbies, Dover for just under the 200 mark 2nd hand with a 3-9x40 Simmons scope. I am unsure of its age, but it had obviously been used regularly, which is why i was so surprised that, when measured with a chronograph, it read right on the top mark! (12ft/lb).

This is in one sense a sort of bittersweet review. I've had my Webley Stingray for four of five months, it's one of the last Pyramyd had of the English made Webleys. I got it in .25 caliber, and this is one fine rifle. I suppose in a review you look to find the problems with a product, but this one really doesn't have much of one. The only negative I can come up with at all is you have to know how to hold this rifle. I basically almost lay the fore-stock across an open palm, not quite, but... (read more)

Just acquired one of the last Webley Stingrays and added a Webley 4x32 scope. Great to shoot and not as bad as expected to break and cock. Started out with a sighting target at 20 yrds and soon got it centred. I was shooting on a clay pigeon shooting ground so it was easy to collect dozens of clay fragments for targets. They vaporised at 20 yards so I extended to range to about 40 and with a little aiming off managed to start breaking them.
As a challenge I paced the back stop area to... (read more)

Bought the Webley Stingray on a bit of a whim. I found my Air Arms S200 a little bit too easy to shoot so I thought a spring powered rifle would be a little more involving. The gun came from Manchester Air Guns for about £170 and I fitted a Webley Scope, 4X32 on see through mounts.
First shots were a bit fierce but after about 50, the gun settled down and the trigger started to feel really nice. I sighted the scope at 20 yds but did not pay too much attention to the grouping. I expected to... (read more)

I find the Webley Stingray an ideal beginners gun exept for it's stiffness.
I don't have the opportunity to shoot it over the chrony but when I do, I will post it here.
We don't have a legal limmit but I think I have it Maccari tuned, pure for the gun's behaviour (to about 12 ft/lbs)
I have a BSA Contender 3-12x50 AO on it and I think it performs very well because we don't have a lot of lights on our range so the big objective is verry effective.
Thats all for now,

After reading the reviews on here for rifles under the £200 mark, I decided on a Webley Stingray. What a mission trying to find a store with one in stock, but luckily I got one a .22 carbine.
The only thing I was miffed with when I got it out the box was it had a drip of staining on the stock, how annoying. But oterhwise I can't fault it and get this, to my amazment the open sights only needed minor adjustment. After just 20! yes 20 pellets I was hitting a 50 pence piece at 35yds! Wicked,... (read more)

Second review of this rifle after now putting about 2000 rounds through the gun.
I've continued to track the grouping over time, and it has improved down to 3/8 inch at 30 yards with the Bushnell scope. I did change pellet to the Beeman Kodiak heavy pellet, this made an improvement in the grouping size and the consistancy of groups from day to day. Presumably due to better manufacturing tolerance, as virtually all pellets have the same tight feel in the barrel. Changing to Beeman Kodiak... (read more)

Have a Webley Patriot and got a good deal on a .22 Stingray carbine, wanted something for plinking with less cocking effort. Am really impressed with the Stingray, super accurate with open sights shooting RWS Hobby wadcutters, excellent power - plenty enough for hunting, actually; easy handling with short barrel. Now I use the Stingray more than the Patriot, which I reserve for "big game." Webley guns are super high quality, I prefer over German. (read more)

After having owned a Winchester 1000X and struggled with poor accuracy for 3 months I researched other rifles. Webley came up in many conversations and reviews and now I know why. Out of the box experience is great. Good looking gun, really fine engineering in the breach action and the trigger especially.
After a few very loud rounds due to oil in the chamber the gun steadied down and immediately shot better than the Winchester 1000X. Nice crisp trigger action and very... (read more)

The webley stingray is a great gun for a slightly more experienced shooter as the potential accuracy is phenomenally high in the right hands also the compactness may not suit all but for me it certainly does the job
The stingray is the procession from the Vulcan and I believe that when handled properly it will outshoot the owner.

I bought my Webley .22 Stingray in about February 04. I was tempted to get an Xocet but I decided to pay a bit extra and go for the Stingray and I haven't been disappointed. When I first came to fire it I thought that the barrel was jammed shut until I got frustrated and give it a good crack which opened it. After a few shots my hand was getting sore and I was a bit worried but eventually it loosened up and became easier to break. I didn't really know how powerful it was going to be as... (read more)

I was suprised by the power and accuracy of the Webley Stingray spring powered rifle. However after 2 months use from new both the high-tensile stock bolts snapped off, with snapped ends embedded inside the thread holes of the gun! I did'nt notice this and the continued firing of the gun caused the end of the stock to split! With hindsight I wish I had tightened up the stock & trigger bolts when I bought it new - I believe the beech stock might have shrunk in storage causing the gun's steel... (read more)

Hmmm, I expected this, a rifle, with good power (920 fps, .177) BUT the Webley Stingray is too heavy for this generation. I say this due to Webley using a cheap metal iron in this case, although it is strong they didn't use an alloy like in the BSA lightning and even the Gamo Hunter!! now British rifles wipe the floor with Spanish guns, so let's keep it this way. DO not criticise my findings, I do this to tell people the truth not some willy nilly about a gun being ace just because I own it... (read more)

Accuracy is very good. The stock is the best fitting I've ever come across-with the short barrel it holds and handles very nicely. So much better than the Beeman R-9 in every respect. The firing cycle is smooth and not at all too loud for it's power level. The finish on the metal and wood is quite nice.
