Trigger Mechanism: The Webley Tempest boasts an excellent trigger mechanism. As a single-action airgun, it virtually eliminates take-up, and the trigger pull is notably light, reducing the risk of unintended firing. This feature significantly enhances shooting accuracy. Additionally, you have the flexibility to adjust the trigger pull between 3-5 pounds according to your preference.

Shooting Accuracy: The Webley Tempest operates on a spring piston system, which produces a distinct recoil sensation as the spring recoils backward, contrary to many spring piston rifles where the spring propels forward. This recoil direction feels more intuitive and contributed to my ability to achieve a precise 1.5-inch grouping from 30 feet in a semi-rested stance. In my tests using .22 caliber 11.9-grain RWS pellets, the Tempest averaged 400 fps, aligning with the Canadian limit of 5.7 Joules for airgun classification.

Construction Quality: The Tempest is predominantly constructed from metal, with limited plastic components like the nose cap and grips. Its compact design and weight distribution lend a solid yet manageable feel. However, the cocking process requires substantial effort, and different techniques may be needed to find the most suitable method.

Design Authenticity: The Webley Tempest isn't exactly a replica airgun, but its pistol grips and trigger design are reminiscent of a revolver, giving it a unique character. Its design concept dates back to the 1920s, adding to its distinctiveness.


  • Highly accurate for a spring piston air pistol.
  • Simple operation: one crank per shot.
  • Predominantly metal construction, ensuring durability.
  • Windage and elevation adjustable rear sight.
  • Compact size with efficient power.
  • Customizable trigger pulls weight from 3-5 pounds.


  • Left-handed users may find the grip less ergonomic.
  • Adjusting the sight requires patience and time.
  • Familiarization with the spring recoil is necessary.
  • Cocking, particularly with the .22 caliber model, is strenuous.


Despite some reservations about the Tempest now being manufactured in Turkey, my experience with the Turkish-made Webley Alecto has been very positive, indicating high-quality production. The Turkish-made Tempest impressively achieves a velocity of 400 fps in the .22 model and about 500 fps in the .177 model, which is commendable for a pistol with a relatively short barrel. Its compact size, comparable to a Beretta 92, is remarkable considering the internal mechanics of the spring piston system. However, the required effort to cock the gun might be challenging for individuals with less physical strength or hand/wrist issues. In such cases, the .177 caliber version, with its lighter cocking effort, might be a more suitable choice.

A Nice Gun

I bought my Tempest from Replica Airguns a little over a year ago. Mine is .22 calibre. It's a really nice, compact gun with a solid feel to it. It packs a lot of punch for such a compact springer.My one complaint is that the trigger pull is very heavy. I haven't measured it with a scale yet, but I'm guessing somewhere on the order of 6-8 lbs. I have adjusted the trigger spring tension to its maximum, but that didn't make a significant difference.It takes a lot of force to cock it as well, but that's to be expected for a gun of this power with a relatively short stroke compression spring. The same applies to air rifles as the power level goes up.The fit and finish are very good on this pistol. The blued parts are well done; the painted surfaces are also. With regard to the comments below about "pitting" in the paint surface, he is probably referring to the spots on the receiver where the roll pins are located. The ends have been sealed but there is an ident for each of them. This is a good thing and not a defect; it shows where the pins are located in the event that one needs to disassemble the gun for some reason.Overall, this is a really good quality, classic air pistol. I've no concerns about quality arising from the new Webleys being made in Turkey. By all accounts the quality remains the same and the build true to the original design. I'm happy with my purchase.

No quality control

Built like a tank..yes...but the plastic nose with tempest writing is low quality...easy to scratch and mine arrived with little scratch...yes it's difficult to load, the spring is heavy but we already know...Mike warn us.The finish on the metal part are...well...unfinished...more paint must be applied to cover. You can see white dots on it. Also, many cavities like puncture holes, they are very tiny but...for a 300$ gun i expect more !!I own many many quality airguns pistols and i can tell you this one is difficult to recommend .I'm very sorry but maybe i've got a lemon ...i think it's important to tell the truth.
