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... (read more)

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 more)

The Webley Longbow air rifle is very accurate, nice to handle, its got a nice stock, its pretty powerful as well. The only bad point I can find it that its loud even with the silencer on. It is an all round, well made air rifle. (read more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

In my opinion the Webley longbow is a much underrated air rifle which deserved greater accolade. Extremely accurate and beautifully made. Excellent two stage trigger and Walther Lothar barrel. The bluing of the metal is far superior to the likes of Air Arms or Weihrauch. The walnut stock is particularly nice with its pistol checkering. No longer in production since Webley went bust after 200 years in the business. There are a few still available. Recommend purchasing a fine example of... (read more)

I bought my Webly Longbow in February 2005 from a local gunshop in Stafford. With it I got a Webley 4x32 and some low Webley mounts along with a BSA SAS silencer.
I chose the more manly .22 calibre as I was planning to use it for conies although with hindsight I believe .177 would of been a better choice due to the flatter trajectory.
When I got it home I bolted the scope on and dashed into my 25 metre range in the garden to zero it in. Accuracy was nothing short of outstanding... (read more)

But it wouldn't be with me until the next friday. I really wanted to shoot so I decided to drive up. When I got there they gave me a free upgrade to the Longbow carbine. With 6X40 scope for £154 (their very good... (read more)

After getting into precharged, I sold off all of my high powered spring rifles because they were too much of a hassle for me (not that I couldn't shoot them accurately). The only spring guns that now appeals to me are medium powered ones because I see no sense in shooting a 20 fpe spring gun that may shatter even the toughest $300 scope. The Webley Longbow nicely fits into this category of medium powered springers.
Since its release, I have drooled over it and I finally... (read more)

I've owned my Webley longbow for a few weeks now and have found it to be an excellent weapon. It is very accurate and easy to use.

I recently acquired the Webley longbow and it is an impressive airgun! Metal finish is highly polished and deeply blued and the (walnut) stock is absolutely beautiful. Cocking effort is slightly more than I anticipated but that's the trade-off for a carbine-length barrel. The gun fires strongly with just a quick snap and not spring twang. Accuracy was below par at first and after talking with the previous owner and dis-assembling the gun for inspection I found that the factory spring... (read more)

Gun purchased on Saturday, lost its virginity to a feral pigeon on sunday. The poor critters don't stand a chance. Some don't even fall off the roof of the old mill they were shot on, they just roll over and die on the spot. This gun has tremendous accuracy and packs a mean punch, it also has really nice build quality and good woodwork. It's light and seems to be in-between carbine and rifle giving best of both worlds. I've since had a go of the bsa lightning i was gonna buy instead and boy... (read more)

Purchased new. Bluing on top of breach block was flawed, though the rest of the rifle was finished beautifully. Chrono at 670 fps with .22 Premiers. VERY accurate. Crisp shooting with almost no spring twang, and very reasonable recoil. Trigger is much better than average, but second stage has some small creep. The break is not quite as crisp as Rekord on Beeman R10 I owned some years ago, but better than any other sporter in the market that I have experience with (RWS, Gamo, etc) ... (read more)

Having read the Terry Doe review of the lazaglided Webley Longbow I went out a bought one in .177. Picking it up from Webley Venom the customer service was excellent. They scoped up and rough zeroed the gun for me and gave me 1000 Lazadomes to get me started. At the range I was delighted. The gun groups under 3/4 inch at 30 yards from a seated Field Target position every time. My best group at 30 yards had all 5 shots touching each other in a group around 1/2 inch.

My son who is a better shot than me hit 12 cans on the trot
at about 40 metres ,I myself hit 9 from 12.
So as you can see its a real accurate rifle.
Comparing with my old BSA Airsporter which i have had for 24 years (and still going strong after a respring)the Longbow is lighter shorter and easier to manage.

i have had my longbow for 2 days now, i had to zero in my 3-9x50 simmmons scope on my own. The first day i went out shooting i got 3 pigeons and 2 magpies. The second day i got 1 rabbit and 2 crows. I got the rabbit from 20 metres away and when the pellet hit the rabbit it moved half a foot, great for hunting definitely the best spring powered air rifle available unless you want to get a webley venom version of the longbow (webley venom sidewinder).
