Today, I’ll report on the accuracy of the gas spring-converted Webley Patriot, and, oh my gosh! I don’t get a gun that shoots this naturally very often. When it happens, it’s quite a treat. Before you run to the forums and claim that I said the .25 caliber Patriot is a tack-driver, stop and read the entire report!
I usually sight-in starting at 10 feet, so the size of the group doesn’t matter or even count. BUT, seldom do I put two pellets through the same hole and not see where the second pellet went! I’ll accept that as a good sign of things to come. The pellet I used was a Beeman Kodiak, of course. Other pellets simply don’t do well in a Patriot or a Kodiak, but the 31-grain Beeman Kodiak performs like it was made for the gun, which, of course, it wasn’t, but could have been. (It was made for the Weihrauch EL54, an ether-injected rifle.)
