“best pellet gun ive owned”

Written on: 30/11/2012

the webley alecto is powerful acurate and has so many setup options to suit all, i use it for target and can shooting and never get tired of using it, it hits where i'm aiming every time and destroys what it hits, i purchased it in .177 at a gun shop and 2nd hand at £100, best £100 ive ever spent, now i know how good it is i'd have been willing to pay £230 new, get one you wont regret it, the only downside for me is my top rail doesnt have a slot for the lower screw in my red dot sight… Read Full Review

“Superb..!!”

Written on: 17/04/2012

Very well balanced and easy to use although the third compression (if required) means you'll have to have had a breakfast of weetabix and spinach..!! Virtually recoilless and easy to attach accessories to. The MK2 model has the slot in weaver rail behind the foresight allowing fitment of some holographic sights that were difficult to fit on the MK1. A great shame that the Alecto Ultra with the longer barrel is not available in the UK as it has a greater muzzle velocity and is classified as a… Read Full Review

uk mate low power laws i have had many alectos all .177 some with top end red dots bushnell trophy etc and some with 3-9x40 scopes on they can easily head shot pigeons at 25 yards instant kill i always use a bisley 90mm scope rubber so it rests on my forehead and it keeps it dead still so cant miss new mod to the uk for it is a new .22 barrel fitted some work and a silencer fitted and then shoots at 8ftlb on 3 pumps no recoil and very quiet when you get older you realise why certain things are made the way they are like 3 pumps on the alecto it is for full power most people cant pump it 3 times a sharpe innova you have to pump it 7 times for full power and that is hard and all for 1 shot what i am trying to say is if we could get 12ftlb alectos in the uk we would want it to be at 18 ftlb, and it would not stop, full power pistols for pigeons at 25 yrds , full power rifles 40 yrds, give them a chance head shots only

“Webley Alecto”

Written on: 18/03/2012 by onlyoneshotrequired (1 review written)

I had two rifles but no pistol for close up vermin so I searched the net for the right pistol.The Alecto seemed to be the one so I took a very nice rifle to my local gun shop and did a strait swap. Am I dissapointed? Hell no! I don't think my remaining rifle will be used much now.Three pumps is what I use every time.It makes a loud crack,recoils just a little and with a scope will give one inch groups every time. I don't know what power it's putting out with three pumps but my guess is that… Read Full Review

great review. It's the best i've ever had as well, fantastic open sights and even better with a bushnell trophy red dot, thats a bushnell trophy, not a smk or walther hawke etc, mine is .177 call, 1 pump for 18 yards bang on the 25mm bull and still holes cans, 2 pumps for 30yrds and holes cans both sides, 3 pumps not worth the noise,amazing pistol and cheaper than a weihrauch 75 and the alecto shoots with better accuracy and has twice the power, get one and be amazed all the best forest gump

“webley alecto .177 the best pneumatic in history”

Written on: 30/09/2011 by forest gump (8 reviews written)

the webley alecto .177 is the most accurate pistol i have owned in 30 years of shooting. this pistol is worth its price tag all day long. this hits what you aim for. the open sights are amazing they are freakish never had such perfect open sights on anything i have ever owned. the balance is perfect no muzzle flip. no need for the 3 stage cocking. 2 stage is plenty of power with top class accuracy.will head shot pigeons at 25 yrds instant kill thats with open sights. i am selling my expensive… Read Full Review

Nec_V20's Response to forest gump's Review

Written on: 19/05/2012

With regard to, "the crappy hw45 that could not hit a barn door at 25 yrds" here is a post from someone who shot the HW45 at 25 yards:

http://weihrauchowners.freeforums.org/hw45-25-yard-groupings-t11264.html

I have two HW45, one .22 and one .177. They are very hold sensitive and they are somewhat picky with regard to ammo. If a pellet fits into the barrel loosely then you can forget any accuracy. For instance in my ,22 if I drop in an RWS Hobby pellet and aim at a target I cannot predict if it will got high, low, left or right of my point of aim.

I found the denigration of the HW45 in your review to be specious, because unless you hold the HW45 correctly it will not perform. This is because it is a spring powered air pistol. If you try holding it like you see actors holding pistols on the TV then you are guaranteed to miss.

Written on: 22/05/2012

Having recently found my camera again (I misplaced it just a few days after buying it and I have now found it again after a year) I made a photo of over 10 shots, freehand at sixteen paces (let's call it 14 metres) with my HW45 .177 and Daystate Rangemaster HE 8.5 grain pellets at a three inch target:

http://i1064.photobucket.com/albums/u366/Nec_V20/177_Rangemaster_HE_16_paces.jpg

And similarly my HW45 .22 with H&N Hollow Point 12.65 grain pellets:

http://i1064.photobucket.com/albums/u366/Nec_V20/HN_22_HollowPoint_16_paces.jpg

Now the HW40 comes in at 3.3 - 3.5 joules which equates to 2.43 - 2.58 ft-lbs depending on which pellet you are shooting. So I think you are mistaking Joules for ft-lbs in your reply to me.

Being a spring powered air pistol one cannot shoot it bench-rested. The fact of the matter that you have had six HW45's and not come to terms with any of them is more a reflection on your own inability to master them than a reflection on the pistol itself. The phrase which ends, ".... blame their tools", comes to mind.

My reply to you was not an indictment of your choice of pistol with regard to the Webley Alecto but rather that your comment, "the crappy hw45 that could not hit a barn door at 25 yrds", flies in the face of my own personal experience with the HW45 and that I found your absolute denigration of that pistol to be thoroughly unwarranted.

There is no denying that it takes quite a lot of practice to fire the HW45 accurately. The secret is to hold it as lightly as possible. Once you get the knack though it is accurate as you can see from the links to the two photos. It does not however deserve the epithet you threw at it.

I am interested in the Alecto hence my reading of your review. Your reply reads as if I were personally attacking you, which was not my intent ,and if you took offence at my reply then I apologise.

like i said the weihrauchs are rubbish the hw40 is very good for the money at 3.2 ftlbs, the hw45 jumps like a bucking, thats not -ucking donkey, the hw75 is a beautiful looking pistol and shoots at around 3.00 ftlbs, and is not worth the money compared to the mighty alecto, 1 pump for 10 to 15 yrds 2 pumps for 15 to 30 yrds 2 pumps will go through both ends of cans at 25 yrds i shoot at 10 mtrs bench rested on 1 pump and the pellets go in on each other pellet on pellet,i have had over 6 hw45s in the past and all bad had 4 hw40s all good and one hw75 that was no better than a hw40 and the best i have had 5 alectos all in .177 and all second hand and they all shoot the same just perfect better than the shooter behind them i only respond to reviews and write reviews so shooters can save money and not to buy rubbish

Dansolo's reply to Forest Gump's Comment

Written on: 26/11/2013

If you shoot pistols bench rested then this would explain poor accuracy with a spring piston pistol, it needs to recoil properly for consistency! If you slowed down a video of the barrel on a spring pistol or rifle you'd see it wobble like a guitar string from the force of the spring piston , that said, if held correctly and allowed to recoil properly it moves the same way every time and accuracy is spot on. By resting it you would be interfering with it's required movement in the same way bipods affect spring piston rifles. Hope this helps :-) D

“Webley Alecto”

Written on: 25/06/2011 by truegrit (2 reviews written)

I was dubious at 1st a Webley that was built in Turkey but I had no reason to be , on purchase you get a nice box , oil and a barrel cleaning rod. Its a large polymer gun with a steel barrel , the trigger is adjustable and feels 2 stage now Ive set it , you can also alter the trigger position and the shelf on the grip to make it suit small hands. 1 pump gives you all the power you need for most shoots including 30 metre shots , 2 pumps will kill rats but 3 pumps seems useless as it only adds .6… Read Full Review

“This pistol is NOT ambidextrous. The anatomical shape...”

Written on: 17/12/2010 by steeplejack (2 reviews written)

This pistol is NOT ambidextrous. The anatomical shape of the grip fits
the right hand perfectly. A lot of muscle is needed to pump the gun, and
if you were holding it in the wrong hand you just couldn't do it. So if
you're left-handed be sure to order the LH version!

"Alecto" is Webley International's name for rebadging the Zoraki HP-01.
It is made by Atak Arms in Instanbul, Turkey.

At the time of writing, their website at

Telephonepete's Response to steeplejack's Review

Written on: 27/02/2011

just got mine. quite impressed. i have removed the palm shelf. i think its a bit of window dressing, and i will be the first in line if anyone starts to make walnut contured grips for it. not that i do not like the grips that are on it, they are just to bulky for my hands. i have just watched nigel allen on u tube doing one hole groups off hand at 10 meters and i dont know whether i believe it. i would like to be there when anybody casually shot groups that good with these sights and trigger. the trigger is unpredictable and not as fine tunable as the manual would suggest. all in all i think i will like it very much. by the way great review. peter.

plenty of power , very accurate very light easy to hold still,no recoil whatsoever.using decent pellets easily hit a pepsi bottle lid from 15metres (i need a longer room).

only thing i dont like is every time you pump your palm turns the vertical adjustment screw and puts the sight out. i just remember the positioning.
Still a very good pistol… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2010 by Librarian (10 reviews written)

I made the acquaintance Alecto at a meeting of the UBC pistol club in October when a spokesman from Webley arrived with a couple of them to let the pistol enthusiasts have a go with. Straight away I have to say I was impressed with the look of the gun. A bit like any tactical multi shot repeater but with a palm shelf and all done in what I would describe as "plastic" but is certainly some fancy kind of composite.
There were only right handed models in .177 to play with (remember that this was… Read Full Review
