Written on: 12/04/2009 by Vulcanator (13 reviews written)

Mine is a .25 cal Beeman Kodiak (re-badged Webley Patriot) that I purchased used a couple of weeks ago. Initial impressions are the bluing, a lustrous quality that easily surpasses my Weihrauchs! The woodwork that incorporates a screw for a sling swivel, a chequered pistol grip with white spacers and a rubber butt plate. The stock is nicely finished and is of handsome proportions and pleasing to the eye. The fit and finish overall is superb. The rifle is also equipped with open sights that… Read Full Review

“Opening the box of my Webley Patriot - it all reeked...”

Written on: 25/02/2009 by Tetrol (1 review written)

Opening the box of my Webley Patriot - it all reeked of quality - the finish, bluing etc was perfect. The varius metal working surfaces had a very fine lubricant applied, not even enough to smear with a finger, but there all the same. I think it is a heavy beast, but so am I - 193cm and 111kg. I fitted the scope before trying the rifle, as I figured I would do so in any event later.

While doing so , I tightened the accessible screws down, some of which seemed to me to have some half turn… Read Full Review

Several weeks later - no changes in my comments - this gun is powerful and accurate, just keep vigilant on things loosening up. I carry it around my 15 acres block in hand, and it would be a load for someone of smaller stature.
<br/>
<br/>Small game (rabbits) are no trouble out to 40m. Beyond that is more my problem than the gun.

“A total waste of money! And the bother of an FAC....”

Written on: 29/11/2008 by candid opinion (1 review written)

A total waste of money! And the bother of an FAC. Horrific recoil and accuracy is poor. Those that write here should compare it to even the cheapest .22 rimfire rifle which will outshoot it in every aspect.

I absolutely hate to think what that recoil is doing to that expensive telescopic sight you've fitted. So called "real" guns - and I've shot them all from .22 rimfire to .270 to .470 don't punch you in the face when the spring is released like on the Patriot.

My advice? I'd sooner go two… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2009

Couldn't disagree more with your scathing assessment of this rifle. Like you I've handled many firearms and while the Patriot recoil is greater than a .22LR is it not by any means punishing. In the Accuracy dept. mine is excellent, 5 shot 5/8" groups ctc, 25 yds open sights-if that is considered inaccurate I would like to know what your standards are!

Written on: 04/05/2008 by Vulcanator (13 reviews written)

Bought this rifle new in April, Webley have made a few changes. "Tru glo" sights which are of plastic construction, the foresight is actually pressed onto the muzzle unlike the old metal sights, so if you drop the gun and break the sight -oh dear!

The stock is subtly redesigned, the wood is of good quality and the fit to the metalwork is excellent. The pistol grip no longer has the white spacer and end cap. The stock screws at the fore-end are horizontal and are larger than previous models… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/05/2008 by skylineman (1 review written)

Those that complain that this gun is too hard to cock, or is too heavy or is inaccurate are either a bunch of kids or are just not right. I mean, seriously, even my girlfriend can cock this gun 30 or so times before she gets tired and she is only 160 cm tall and weigh 50 kg! It's all about the technique people. Think leverage.
And the weight? C'mon, 9 odd pounds aint heavy at all. If you're complaining that it's too heavy - find something else lighter like a plastic gun or water pistol. This gun… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2010

I couldn't agree with you more, springer air gunning is a technique, once mastered, or just used to it. You can shoot quite well, and you find ways to leverage your body to cock it. Once you get used to these you can shoot quite effectively and a lot cheaper that rimfire.

Written on: 07/08/2012

I have had Webley air rifles all my life and i totally agree with you,,,,,I fire nothing but Webleys,When i was in England i had the 12lb legal rifles and found they did the job they were intended to do,,,,,Shoot rabbits and do a bit of target practice,,,Rabbits at say 20-40 yards are killable with a 12lb none FAC rifle,,, over 40 yards and all your doing is causing the animal pain and maybe even a slow painful death,,,,
Now comes to the Webley Patriot and i find that it is the master of all spring air rifles,,, I own a Birmingham made Patriot .22 and its firing in at around 33lb with Accu-pells hollow point pellets,,,accuracy is coming in at 5/8 grouping at 40yards with tasco 3-9 sight,,, loctite and held in place well,,,It does need the odd clean and retighten every now and then but i always did this with every rifle i ever owned,,, I have this rifle a year now and fired around 4,000 rounds with it,,,,all accurate killing shots and when it hits a rabbit, bird, pigeon, pheasant, duck or magpie it does so with tremendous force and one shot always does the job to instantly kill pray,,,yes its a beast of a gun and yes its a little heavier than most,,, but people must understand,,, this rifle is not for the faint hearted or someone thinking that its a rifle for plinking,,,This rifle is a killing machine and i would recommend to anyone who are wanting to buy a rifle with a limited budget but wanting sheer power and accuracy to buy the British made Webley patriot,,The Turkish Hassan models just aint the same for reliability and the power is a lot less too,,, Maximum power on the Hassans are about 25lb,, Tip,,,You can tell a British made Webley Patriot as it says Made in Birminghan England on the side of the Barrel near the loading area,,,, So my recommendations are buy a British made Webley and look after it,,,,Keep it clean, respect its power and it will never let you down,,, and never buy cheap sights,,,, this rifle will bust a cheap sight and at the very minimum knock your crossairs off after one or 2 shots if you dare to use cheap sights,,, Im loving using this rifle and i hope to using this very firearm for many years to come,,,10-10 every time for this rifle which is fast becoming a classic in its own right,,, Oh yes and its a beautifully crafted and solidly made weapon too,,,,Many thanks,,,Tony McLoone,,,

Written on: 12/03/2008 by robo342 (1 review written)

For my shooting characteristics, this gun was made for me, a perfect fit. I am very happy with the workmanship, accuracy, and especially the power. Is this gun the right fit for most, probably not, you must analyze what you want from a gun, how you are going to use it, and then do your research. If you do, then there is a very good chance you will write a very good review on whatever product you are reviewing… Read Full Review

“The thing to consider before buying a Patriot is that...”

Written on: 24/02/2008

The thing to consider before buying a Patriot is that in most cases a different airgun is a better answer to the question. I own a Patriot in .25 caliber, and it is my least used airgun out of a total of 7. It is a one trick pony, lots of power for a spring airgun, and I'll admit I was drawn to that. But if I really need power, it still pales when compared to any cartridge firearm, so why? (Unless you live in an area that restricts them)
I am not whining that it is to heavy or hard to cock, I… Read Full Review

I am not here to write a story about the Webley Patriot but just to simply leave a few pros and cons about this rifle since I do have one. I purchased this rifle with the intention on using it as pest control and hunt small game. This rifle does exactly that, it hits its target with authority(Mr Squirel is down for good)! I also find the Webley Patriot to be very accurate. Not quite as accurate as my Beeman R9 or my Beeman RX2 but after all this rifle is not made for this type of shooting. A… Read Full Review

“Everything about this rifle says "big" and "solid"....”

Written on: 15/09/2007 by wal1 (1 review written)

Everything about this rifle says "big" and "solid". I'm in the process of breaking mine in (got it 2 months ago), and have between 600-700 shots in. You get used to the cocking effort; it's not prohibitive if you're reasonably strong. Best accuracy so far comes with 31g Kodiak (634 fps), 26.5g Cro-Magnum (750 fps), and 24g Beeman Silver Arrow (about 810 fps). I've been having quite a time getting consistent groups, but I attribute that to shooting technique (it takes a LOT of practice), and the… Read Full Review

Did you buy your rifle brand new? I'm curious if yours is one of the Turkish made rifles as I've heard that the finish on the Turkish made rifles is not as good as those made in the UK.
<br/>Would you care to comment on its finish as I'm considering buying one-thanks.

Written on: 02/04/2006 by RLC (2 reviews written)

I ordered my Webley Patriot rifle from Cabela's about five years ago because I was impressed with the velocity figures. I bought it in .177 caliber. I was shocked when I received it because of it's size and weight (my last air rifle was a very old Benjamin in .177). It also takes a while to get used to the noise (almost as much as a .22 rimfire) and the recoil (more than a rimfire). I put a BSA 2-7x scope on it (bad choice, this is the worst scope I've ever looked through). The gun is… Read Full Review

Well I just got my new Webley Patriot today and WOW what a rifle. Lots of POWER. Great workmanship and I couldn't ask for a better shooting rifle. I have a Gamo Shadow 1000 and it is a toy compareded to the Patriot .22 cal. I was sighting in my 4-16x50 leapers scope and it was shooting through 1/2" plywood at 30 yards. I used Crossman Premeire domed pellets and they shoot very straight. And had lots of penetration. Great rifle for the money… Read Full Review

Well here are the results I shot Kodiak 30.9 gr at 621 avg at 50 yards they went 530.4 fps, thats 19.2 fpe. It's a very powerful air gun. Crow mags go 705 mv, they are very inaccurate after 25 yards.

Compared to My Beeman R-9 rifle the Webley Patriot is much more powerful. Well worth the money. The effort it takes to cock is not really a negative, this is just a minor detail that anyone will overcome and over time will not seem so apparent. I recomend either a Bushnell Banner 4-12 by 40 or what I have on mine which is a Banner Trophy 4-12 by 40 an Excellent scope… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/07/2005

Hey! I bought a Webley Patriot in .25 cal. a couple months ago. Great gun! Lots of power. I've got it equiped with a Bushnell 3-9X32 scope with adjustable objective. I've never owned a high end scope so I can't comment on them but to me this Bushnell is an excellent lower priced scope. I've fired about 400 rounds through my Patriot so far and have had no problems what so ever. I got my scope through AirGunExpress.com ($82.00) but since have found it cheaper at Binoculars.com ($66.30). I should point out that Airgun Express has a much better description of the scope and lists its fearures in detail. You might want to check them out.
<br>
<br>At present I'm just using the scope rings that came with it as the Patriot does not require high profile rings. Who knows what'll happen after another 1000 shots, but for now I love this scope. Hope this helped you.

There is one word that adequately expresses the Webley Patriot's suitability as a hunting tool: HASENPFEFFER. The .25 cal. absolutely devastates game.

This air rifle has deservedly been labeled, "[M]ost powerful springier." It is clear that the Patriot is an air rifle for the experienced shooter. Anyone spending this much money without adequately researching the nuance of the product is betrayed by their own whining and complaining in the various online forums. This is a big rifle.
