Poor components means that this Webley Nimbus rifle is a typical, short-lived Chinese rifle. (read more)

I have just had the misfortune of trialling a Webley Nimbus .177 fitted with a 4 x 20 Hawke scope.
A farmer friend of mine asked me to `have a look at it` as he COULD hit a barn door with it at 20yds but was really hoping to hit a rabbit in the head with it instead.
The gun is virtually new, only having fired around 800 pellets.
I accepted his offer and also found that the gun was extremely inaccurate producing groupings of 75mm even at 12.5yds and using AA Field Pellets.
I did notice... (read more)

I got the Webley Nimbus for Christmas 2005 and even now in March we are still trying to get it so you can hit targets with it. We took one shoot and it was accurate so we took a other 5 and it misses every time. (read more)

The Webley Nimbus is a good little gun, based on a cometa 5 and identical in every way to the SMK XS B12. You see as any designs age Chinese companies buy up the plans and then produce products identical to items that would have been available as branded a year or so before. Webley are no stranger to this process and are now quite closely linked with a factory in China who produce them two ranges of guns. There are the sub £40 guns that are absolutely rubbish and then things like the Nimbus,... (read more)

The Webley Nimbus was my first rifle. It's very well presented with the overall look of the gun implying it's well manafactured. Good quality for money being such a good gun. I found it handled well with good accuracy. It dosent have a very big recoil. I think its a good all-round gun. (read more)

The Webley Nimbus is my first rifle and I love it and was easily affordable at £60 and does everything I want all I need now is a scope. Apart from the fact of the sights it's a pretty good rifle all round.
I am also looking for a new one to sit next too it: 10 shot

I got the Webley Nimbus and picked it out of the box-I noticed its quite heavy weight which I like a lot! then I noticed the lovely beech wood stock! I load a .177 rws gecko pellet, and gently squeeze the trigger and poof bellow of smoke puffs out at the end of the barrel and the rifle kicks back into my shoulder! I go to see if I had hit the book I set out (a yellow pages book) about 15 metres away and I notice I missed. so I adjust the sight and have another shot and once again poof... (read more)

I bought my Webley Nimbus from Pellpax and received it the day after I ordered it (pretty good seeing as I played 7pounds p&p). I had been saving up cans for weeks in preparation for its arrival. Here is what happened.
1. I'm opening the rifle. It looks good and has a nice stock.
2. I load it (the instructions are not clear on how to do this).
3. I shoot the rifle and find it belches smoke
(this only lasts for three shoots thereafter it is only a small amount of smoke that is great fun when... (read more)
