I bought my nemesis from Bates gun shop in B,ham about 1992. This is a great target shooting gun, it's very accurate too. mines is the 177 cal. just 2 weeks ago i shot my first big rat(about 10 ")without the tail, in my friends back garden in Handsworth. It was at a distance of 12 or 13 feet away, It was a clean head shot. The pellet went straight threw. I had a 1.5 x 15 scope on it at the time. I have just upgraded the scope to a 4 x 32 scope (much better). I would have this pistol any... (read more)

I love my Nemesis pistols. I have a .177 and a .22. They are very accurate and seem to be made to last a lifetime. The "no recoil" aspect of shooting them is strange at first (compared to other Webleys, i.e. Tempest) but is easy to adapt to. The .177 seems to have more punch that the .22, but I would not use either for pest eradication, I don't think they have the power for it. Target and plinking they are fine. (read more)

I bought my Nemesis as NOS at a gun show last year. The dealer did not have the original box, but did supply a manual. I was taken with the gun right from my first look. It has the right heft to it, and despite other reviewers finding it aesthetically uninspiring, I really like its look. The gun smacks of British Webley quality: lots of metal, retaining pins and clips, and well fitted components. My first forays into firing the Nemesis were a bit confounding, as the trigger had been set... (read more)

So now,2009, you can only buy one secondhand. I just have. I'll admit that I am a collector of Webley airpistols so wanted an example to make my collection complete. That said I don't go for mint condition because I like to use each one.
Considering the price I was surprised how substantial it is. The bottom half almost harks back to the Webley glory days - originally drop forged steel then cast alloy. This is alloy - mine polished up with metal polish to an almost chrome finish - quite... (read more)

Overall a very good shooting gun, and it's excellent for plinking cans and stuff, so have fun with it.
Unfortunately Webley have now discontinued production of the Nemesis, so there are only a few places you can get it. But persevere, you won't be disappointed by it's overall performance. (read more)

I have had a Webley and Scott Nemesis for about 6 months I have competed nationally and this is a very accurate gun, great for 10m range or even 20m although it is not the most exciting guns to look at, as long as it performs well i don't think looks matter (read more)

I swapped an old air rifle for the Webley & Scott Nemesis, thank goodness I didn't spend money on it.
Although it is well made etc, this gun lacks any character. It's dull to look at (horribly plastic)and boring to use.
Having said all that it's quite accurate and has the power you'd expect from gun of this type.
But it's still boring!! (read more)

The Webley & Scott Nemesis .177 is a good well made pistol. Single shot, feels strange because it is recoiless. Very accurate, good for 10m
range or tin cans. (read more)

I got the Webley & Scott Nemesis .177 gun 4 days ago and have shot about 200 pellets I was amazed at how good the accuracy was with a red dot sight.The standerd sight is a bit big for my liking but with the red dot sight I could not miss.The gun has no recoil giving it a bit of a lifeless felling but I suppose this improves accuracy.

I had a Webley & Scott Nemesis .177 about 3 years ago. I payed about £85. This is a very good gun for targets and plinking, but not hunting. Pellets are fired at about 385fps, althogh it seems faster. I have seen power quoted from 2-4ftlbs so I'm not to sure on that. It is very accurate, probably due to it's recoiless pneumatic action and it's fairly long and rifled barrel. It is easy to cock and load once you get used to the rather original layout. The safety catch works very well and has... (read more)

A very good gun combined with a not so good gun!
First thing you notice when you open the box is that your gun is absolutely covered in tiny bits of polystyrene which take the whole morning to get off! The rear sight can be fully adjusted, which is great. The elevation is adjusted by turning a screw that connects with a fixed nut, the sight pushes up against this screw so the more you loosen the screw, the higher the rear sight will be. Unfortunately, every time I closed the overlever (top... (read more)

This air pistol is great. It is very accurate for it class. I love the feel, the looks, and the reliability. I added a Red Dot Scope and I can hit small pebbles at 10 meters. Just a fun gun overall (read more)

The Webley Nemesis is a great little pistol,well made,very accurate and not expensive at all.It's the perfect back garden plinker or target pistol...I've got the Aimbrace shoulder stock aswell that turns it into a mini carbine that really can put the pellet where you want it!
The only thing I'm not keen on when firing it is there's no recoil(a bonus to most people)I like a bit of recoil,it makes the gun feel more 'alive'.
The Nemesis is never going to be a Weihrauch 45, but it's a bargain... (read more)
