Things I liked: Power, built to last, classic design. What else do you want? Oh that's right, wood grips. I ordered some online from airgunner.177, he is in the UK and easy to find.
Things I would have changed: The breech seal. Lots of complaints about it and mine falls out of the gun. It is a loose fit and has fallen out several times. Also the gun is EXTREMELY hard to cock, no joke.
What others should know: I think it has plenty of power, and it seems to be very accurate. I have shot it at 15 yards and put the pellets right on top of each other using RWS 11.9 grain Hobby pellets. Okay right on top of each other is more like an inch and a half but that is about as good as I can shoot. Plenty accurate for backyard plinking and I have killed a few birds too.
Things I liked: I have wanted this pistol for a very long time, as I had one as a boy in the UK. Everyone was out of stock so I submitted my email to PyramydAir to inform me when they were in stock. They emailed me and I ordered immediately. The gun was delivered to me in Canada in one week, I was supplied with a good tracking number. The pistol looks great, it was vey stiff to open at first, and it is very difficult to crank (load) but I am over 80yrs so not so strong any more. Sighting in was fairly easy and the gun is very accurate I get a 1" group at 20 ft. I have fired about 500 shots and it is getting easier. I cannot comment on fps and I have not used it on anything but targets indoor shooting only. I am very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this pistol (.177) and I am very pleased with PyramydAir's service. John Hutchings.

Things I liked: So I initially purchased this pistol, back in the 80's, unfortunately, my pain in the butt older sister sold it at a garage sale, while I was off, fighting the good fight in '93, in Somalia. The box it arrived in, was a piece of art, the pistol was impeccably crafted, it was a piece of art as well. So I decided to reorder the pistol with your company, I received it - the first time, a couple weeks ago. The box had very cheaply made packaging that you'd expect to find with a BB gun for a 12 year old. It was also in a beaten up state, inside and out, I was devastated. I was inspecting the weapon, and it was obvious, that it was not made by the same company, just by giving it a quick once over, it was very sad actually. But it was even more disappointing when I went to turn off the safety, and it just dangled, as if it was just there for show, like a dummy switch, wow, what a letdown! Apparently this outfit in Turkey is not in the business of producing quality equipment, at any stage!
Things I would have changed: Beeman needs to buy the company back, take off their finely crafted leather gloves, and swiftly lash these clowns from Turkey, twice across the facial area with them, for ever attempting to do some that is quite apparently above their pay grade! As far as Pyramid is concerned, your company, the people you have hired as your buyer's need to get buttoned up, and actually investigate some of these foreign companies, they are a direct reflection of you, don't whore yourself so easily, it's definitely not with risking your fine reputation, is it? Look, maybe I'm being too stern, who knows! But regardless, I have given both you and the company from Turkey a second chance, we'll see if anything's different this second time around, I hope so! Thanks for your time, Mike.
Are sure .177 available in Next month ?
Order page says 2-20-16 .
Greetings... I bought one of these for my wife (I have a Browning 800), and I want to mount some type of aiming aid to it. The Browning has a dovetail, this Tempest does not. Is there any other option other than a trigger mount laser? Thank you...
Hi The Webley Tempest interests me, but I'm a little confused as to its fps rating for .22 pellets. Your site says the max velocity is 350, yet I've read articles that refer to its rating as 400 fps - enough of difference to be significant. So, which is it? Thanks!
The Beeman Webley Tempest was rated at 470 in .177 Because they were sold for the American market. The Webley Tempest in .177 is made for the English Market, and have to adhere to British Foot Pound Regulations. If you can find a Beeman Webley Tempest. Or see if one of the Air Gun Smiths, can bring it up to what it should be. This is ONE Air Gun, where the .177 is a Better Gun, because it is a TARGET ONLY GUN. VERY ACCURATE !! Dime size at 33 feet. Fantastic Gun ! I own Two. One was modified by Beeman to take a Heavy guage wire coated Shoulder Stock. I can hit a tin Can at 50 feet Consistantly. Use light pellets.
Here's the answer for you, also great info to help you choose the right pellet. It's a thorough test of fpe, fps etc of many different pellets. http://www.gunmart.net/gun_review/webley_tempest_pistol
If using lead free ammo you can push the fps higher than some ratings. This could easily account for the discrepancy you are referring to.
