Things I liked: Had the .177 since 1980 / found out that this one being built - immediately ordered it. The definition of Back Yard Blast!!!

Things I would have changed: nothing.

What others should know: Instant fun at a moment's notice. Keep your shooting skills up popping the unfortunate coke can.

Things I liked: Feels like a real gun in your hand. Not too big like some others. Delivers good power for a small package. Quiet.

Things I would have changed: Rear sight. Can be difficult to zero with no reference marks.

What others should know: Mine was delivered with a bad breech seal. I was only getting 240 fps with a 11.9 pellet. Luckily, I bought some spares but they are not the same size. Too big in diameter and too thin. I reworked the new seal to fit and added an appropriate size flat washer behind the seal and now all is good. As advertised, the 22 caliber gets 350 fps with Crosman premier 14.3 pellets. Lighter pellets are a bit faster with Beeman Silver Bear 12.6 gr at 375 fps, and RWS Hobby 11.9 gr at 390 fps. This particular pistol seems to like the Beeman Silver Bear the best.

Things I liked: The Tempest is a well made and solid pistol with very little plastic used in its manufacture. It has an adjustable single-stage trigger that breaks clean. It takes some time to zero in the rear sight as there are no micrometer adjustments, but two screws which must be loosened for both windage and elevation. As everyone has mentioned, it takes some hand and wrist strength to cock - not much leverage is offered by the barrel. Other than the cocking effort, this is a fun pistol to shoot, and it's accurate enough to hit what you're aiming for, but a match pistol it's not, but then, what spring pistol pistol is, and I a number of them. I haven't found the Tempest to be hold sensitive or picky about pellets. RWS Diablo Basics will group well from 10 yds. Cool pistol, and it's small size is a plus for me.

Things I would have changed: Nothing, it's a classic.

What others should know: The trigger can only be adjusted when the pistol is cocked.

    Are sure .177 available in Next month ?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Order page says 2-20-16 .

  • Grant from USA asked:

    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...

    • Jim from Canada asked:

      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!

      • Forrest from USA:

        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.

      • Joachim from USA:

        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.

      • Zimm from USA:

        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.
