Air Weapons

Webley air pistols

A very long time ago when shooting was more oriented toward air weapons, began a small accumulation of these Webley models. They all have the same configuration, with main spring inside a lower chamber and then a barrel which when released and manouvered through about 130º cocked the gun leaving main spring compressed. One is cleaner than the rest.

The barrel when reseated and locked by the lever, impinged on a leather washer through the middle of which the air was released when fired. This was critical as it was what provided a good seal. Overall the .177 caliber seemed better than .22 - but even then velocity was very modest. Best ''sport'' was plinking at flies or yellow jackets!
