|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
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!
