By Frank from USA on 2012-01-22 15:36:25Things I liked:Have one of these pistols from 35 years go. I love the grip angle and comfort, and this iteration of the gun still fits my large hands. After removing the gun from it's fitted luggage style case, I thoroughly examined it, and found the fit and finish to be as superb as my older .177 Tempest pistol. Unlike other airguns I've purchased, the barrel was bright and clean. A light cleaning was all that was needed to get it ready for shooting.
Things I would have changed:Although the plastic grips fit my hand, I would like Webley&Scott to offer checkered wood replacement stocks. The rear sight is exactly as my old .177 Tempest: crude but adjustable.
What others should know:Cocking this baby is harder than my older Tempest. Perhaps it's the age and amount of use the older guns has had over the years. Accuracy in .22 caliber is good, but then I haven't broken in the gun yet. I'll post those findings after a tin or two of Crosman 14 grainers. All in all, I find this a very adequate remake of an old favorite of mine. I got this one in .22 as it wasn't offered in that caliber 35 years ago (if it was, it wasn't readily available when I ordered my oldie Tempest). I'm expecting velociies in the neighborhood of 400fps once broken in, and quarter sized groups at 10 meters.

By john from USA on 2012-01-21 08:35:32Things I liked:Great trigger,breaks clean each time. Fit and finish second to none. Fits my hand well and has good balance. The rear sight is easy to adjust, and the manual gives clear instructions, if needed on how to do this. Groups well at 10 meters.
Things I would have changed:needs a cocking aid.
What others should know:Very hard to cock,very hard!
