This is a good general purpose airgun. I have had this gun for 13 years and it has been a staple in my arsenal. Although it has to be the least accurate of all my guns because of the rearward motion of the piston upon firing. It looks awesome and has maintained its velocity over the years, I have made a set of custom walnut grips for it because Iam left handed and the gun comes with right handed grips. (read more)

i just aquired a Webley Tempest .22 2nd hand. i thought i would check out web for feedback on the gun. hence hitting this site. now i wouldnt kill a fly & it quite sickened me to see comments like i shot a sparrow & a starling (both birds in serious decline). why on earth do people feel the need to slaughter harmless wildlife for fun? the gun? great, still puts a hole in a tin can & feels real compared to some of the chinese rubbish out there. but please don't kill for fun its sick &...

Webley Tempest .22 is an excellent pistol it has never let me down. I bought it 5 years ago and have found it to be pretty accurate. The model I bought is the 22 5.6 which means a heavier pellet giving it more accuracy than the standard 22 5.5. This pistol I ave used on many occasions for vermin control either for a quick shot for a moving target or a finishing shot after a long range shot from a rifle (50 metres or so for R's 30 for F's).

As a teenager my webley tempest could enter an empty coke can and leave via the other side of the can whilst leaving the can standing in it's original place. My friends air pistols only lightly dented the cans,knocking them over if hit in the right place. I'm now in my 40's but will never forget the amount of fun or the quality, power and the accuracy of this gun. Truly a pleasure to own! (read more)

This (and its sister, the Hurricane) is the last incarnation of a webley design that goes back to before WW1. Webley wanted to design a gun that would weigh and feel like a full bore pistol in the hand, and recoil like one (hence the barrel being over the top instead of inline like contempory pistols). This they tried to sell to the armed forces for teaching pistol shooting, and every boys club, scout group and cadet force in the british empire must've had one at some point!!

I ordered a Webley Tempest in .22 caliber as soon as I found out that Webley went into receivership. Too bad, the British really know how to put together a durable and long lasting pistol. As you can guess, I am a Webley fan. It took me 8 shots and I was hitting the 9/10 ring at 10 meters. It just feels right in my hands. It inpires confidence and I hit what I aim at. I have a .177 caliber Webley Tempest that I purchased a couple of years ago and it is the same in regards to fit and... (read more)

I have just been given a Webley Tempest which had been in someones locker for four years. The owner gave it to me in exchange for writing him a CV! And what a find. The weight sits very comfortably in hand and the sights needed no adjustment. I really enjoy shooting it. Just one thing, the condition could be better but I guess it shows that even though it hasn't been looked after, it still is a magnificent pistol. (read more)

I got one of the Webley Tempests .22 for my birthay and man was it hard to pump! But when I hit a target you could hear the power of that thing! I personally think that it is good in every way. But dads/moms, don't buy it for your kids. Too much power thay might kill themselves. But if they are smart and safe with a gun the .22 can is less prone to bouncing of hard targets. The 22 is also best for hunting! (read more)

The Webley Tempest is very reliable. You could shoot this pistol for years and years ,then give it to you your kids to shoot for years more, well balanced, cocking the pistol takes a bit of getting used to, accuracy is good if you practice. These pistols get better with use, I have put thousands of shots through mine and they are smoother now than when new ,they don't wear out, they wear in. (read more)

I bought the Webley Tempest .22 air pistol when they first came out (and I had hair). You can't really fault it. It is pretty accurate, fairly powerful (approx 3 ft/lbs), and good fun. I lost count of how many pellets I've put through it a long time ago, and all with no problem. Wipe with an oiled cloth, and put a bit of oil on the moving parts. (read more)

I bought an Webley Tempest .22 this morning at a car boot sale. It looked a right shed of a pistol, but I've always fancied one of these so I handed over a few quid and looked forward to a bit of work.
Initially it was a bit rattly to fire as a test, so on with the stripping!
It took quite a while to find suitable drifts to remove the roll pins that holds these pistols together, come on Webley, this is just lazy on a weapon that retails for over £100.
Everything was cleaned out and all the... (read more)

Why not improve your Webley Tempest .22 like I did with mine? I bought my .22 a few weeks ago and overall, I really like it. The sights are "adequate" rather than good though. My gun shoots high and to the right, but is fun to use. Okay to the mods...
I stripped the gun and polished the terrible trigger and sear contact faces. This transforms the release quality. C'mon Webley, it took me 3 minutes, why can't YOU do it? I then moly-greased the moving parts and the gun feels better overall... (read more)

After only having the Webley Tempest .22 Air Pistol a few days I am feeling dissapointed. With the rear sight all the way up it still shoots low! This is due to poor design in the spring/piston powerplant. The spring is compressed towards the front sight and when released drives the piston towards the rear of the gun. This is opposite that of most guns which causes the gun to rotate forwards instead of the typical gun rotating backwards about the center of gravity. If a heavy enough... (read more)

Webley Tempest .22 Air Pistol : Sighting was a bit of a challenge for the distance. The rear sight set all the way to it's top end. The left and right sighting not an issue. Of the 5 shots fired 4 hit within rings 5-9. At 106 feet from muzzle to target I think that this was very exceptional. I found only one ammo type consistant to accomplish this, which was the Crosman .117 Lead Point. It is there basic pointed pellet, not the premier. In fact it is one of six types in there Copperhead Six... (read more)

I got given a Webley Tempest pistol about 2 years ago I have used the gun loads, mainly because it is easy to transport and fire, it has plenty of power(enough to kill a rabbit at 20 yards) and is quick to reload, but if you are looking at this gun for target practice you are missing the piont.

Well I got my Tempest 21 years ago after hassling my parents for an air rifle for months. It cost around £45 back then and I still have it. Its had a mainspring replaced (I didnt know if it needed it but thought after about 15 years it might do no harm) and the breech washer. Other than the Webley Tempest logos rubbing off its still in perfect order even after firing probably 5000 or more shots. A good all all rounder, amazed they cost around £130 pounds now though, how time flies!... (read more)

I bought my .177 Webley Tempest some 15 years ago and I still have it, and it's in good shape. That's enough to recommemd it as far as quality is concerned. I didn't use it quite so often because I'm left handed, so I eventually got around to making customer grips out of some scrap birch. I had to make some modifications to allow this. The grips are held together by a 3/8inch brass piece threaded for 6by32. There's a depression in the grip frame that I drilled out to 3/8, to provide a... (read more)

Yes the Webley Tempest.22 is not a cheap gun but it's a winner. VERY accuarate and built to last. I have a lot of CO2 guns and this is better than all of them for accuracy. The only gun that beats this is a Brocock .22 air cartridge pistol. (Stunning power & accuracy but about to be outlawed in the UK!) The Tempest has a great feel, gives you a LOT of good exercise in cocking and for a .177 hits hard. Buy it. It may be losing ground to a CO2 range of guns but once you give it a try you...

My tempest shoots 13.8 gr BSA elites at 348fps with very nice accuracy. More than enough to kill rats. 8 last year.....The tempest is the kind of pistol that once you pick it up it is hard to put down. A great gun to take on a picnic or fishing if you fancy a bit of plinking. Overall one of my favorite airguns. (read more)

The Webley Tempest .22 is a great air pistol for target shooting. I also use mine to shoot small vermin such as rats. It's powerful for an air pistol in my opinion - mine pushes out about 4ft/lbs and is quite up to the task at despatching rats at short range.
Basically the Tempest is a quality air pistol and is ideal for shooting targets in backgardens. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a good quality air pistol that is well made and durable. (read more)
