Having purchaced my Webley Lonbow SE in 2009, i was very very pleased with it,s standard of finish.
The Rifle is a shade under 41 inches long and weighs in unscoped at around 8 pounds and the muzzel is threaded ready to take a silencer/sound moderator.
The standard of finish is very very good with the metal work showwing a deep blue finish,and the walnut thumbhole stock is finished to a high standard too,(my only slight critisism being a small area inside the forend of the stock which looks to… Read Full Review

Mine is a Turkish built Rifle and boy is it a pile of Monkey goo. Don't buy the Turkish built Rifle, not worth it at half the price. Unfinished parts, crappy industrial lube, plastic trigger, misaligned barrel. total junk, i would have expected better from a chinese rifle. Buy a Beeman R series or an RWS. Don't buy the Turk Webley it's junk. Im using mine to teach tunes… Read Full Review

If you are having problems with accuracy check that the two front stock screws are tight. After a while they work loose and play havoc with the accuracy. If they are tight, you may need to loosen your grip on the riffle when shooting. Never press the stock into your shoulder. Air rifles need to be free floating due to their double recoil. Hope this helps.

“I have owned my Webley Longbow for about 2 years now...”

Written on: 01/07/2008 by JakeonUK (1 review written)

I have owned my Webley Longbow for about 2 years now and it is certainly the most impressive breakbarrel spring air rifle I have come accross in terms of accuracy and power. I opted for .177 caliber (To be different) and am very satisfied with the penetration of the shots, Using standard dome head pellets, this rifle will blow a clean hole through a steel mestin (Army cooking pan) at 30-40 meters without any problem.

I am currently using the rifle in conjunction with a Logun sound suppressor… Read Full Review

I fitted my longbow with a new "venom spring" pushing the power up to 22 ft-lbs using 22.5gr pellets. there is less recoil, less mechanical noise when fired, and fitted with a .22 LR silencer is virtually 100% silent. i have mine zeroed for 80 yards but with a ballistic recitle have made kills comfortably out to 110 yards on rabbits using bipod… Read Full Review

the gun was so inconsistant pigeons would only fly away if i threw the gun at them joking apart at 30 yards groupings were at 60mm which made the gun unfair to use in case i only wounded in the end i have exchanged it for a theoben evo stock not as good as the webley but deadly accurate (one holer)at 40 yards… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2008

Sounds to me your gun had some kind of problem. The Longbow has a very good reputation, is yours a Turkish model by chance? I recently bough a Patriot and sent it back due to quality control issues. A longbow in the UK is considered a full powered gun and should be doing nearer 11 ft/lbs give or take-if the guns under warranty send it back and get it sorted!

I bought my Webley Longbow .22 for only £230, good price compared to other spring rifles out there. I pay around £70 for a Hawke Reflex 3-9x50 - Mil dot which id is the best combo for this rifle. I found that this rifle has no problem at taking down rabbits or crows at around 55 yards, and would still be able to kill at much longer distance… Read Full Review

Cognition's Response to Cognition's Review

Written on: 13/07/2007

Ok , so maybe I should add a little bit more detail to this review as it didn't really go into much detail .
<br/>
<br/>The main reason for giving the Longbow such low marks is down to the performance . From a very stable prone position , the Longbow only gave groups the size of a paper target from 15 yards . I even dragged a chair out into the drive as a rest to make sure that this poor performance wasn't down to ' me ' but the pellets carried on landing at random locations ... on top of this , the spring made a horrible twang when firing , and this made the whole shooting experience even less enjoyable and all the more disappointing .
<br/>
<br/>Don't get me wrong , the Longbow is a nice piece of kit if it works , but it's too much hassle and will consume too much money to get right if it's broken . I'm selling it today ( hopefully ) to a local gun shop , to regain as much money as I can from this bad buy .
<br/>
<br/>So to conclude , I wasn't really fair in my review . I would recommend the Longbow , but only one of the old ones , and only if it works . You should test it before you buy , just to make sure - this wasn't an option for me though .
<br/>
<br/>Get one in good working order and they should be good rifles -
<br/>
<br/>James.

Written on: 14/11/2006 by triballofts (3 reviews written)

Bought second hand in .22 cal, a bit rough at first but what a difference it made with the following maintenance: stripped and polished, new piston seal, v-mach spring and top hat installed, re-lubed. It is now one of the nicest springers that I have ever shot and I've shot a lot. The recoil is sweet, a nice nudge as it was quite sharp before, now it's very well balanced and the weight helps with the recoil, its very accurate for a springer. It's a brilliant hunting rifle, mine now shoots at… Read Full Review
