Things I liked: This is a well built and accurate air pistol. Most of the gun is made of plastic. This includes both the upper and lower receivers and the pistol grip. The internal parts are metal, and there is a metal plate inside both the lower and upper receivers’ sidewall used for reinforcement. For added structural integrity, the metal plate extends to the front of the pistol where the cocking hinge is located. The accessory rails on the top and bottom on the pistol are handy. The pistol comes with its own case, gun oil, and torx wrench. I contacted a Webley representative via email with a couple of questions about the gun, and his response was fast and courteous. It seems their customer support is as excellent as their product.

Things I would have changed: The materials which go into this gun are not expensive, but the gun itself is pricey. When it arrived I noticed a few slight dings in the plastic frame. I’m guessing these dings occurred in the factory where it was made. When you pay this much for a new pistol such imperfections should not exist.

What others should know: This pistol is very easy to cock with one pump. All of my indoor shooting will be with just one pump. Most of my shooting outdoors will be with two pumps. Two pumps take a little more effort, but I would say its still fairly easy to do. Three pumps require considerably more effort, but in my opinion the effort is still reasonable. I wouldn’t modify this gun to take four pumps as (1) it will break the warranty, (2) it might break the gun, and (3) the extra power you would get from it would be negligible. I wear a large size glove. My hand has a 9.5 inch (24.1 cm) circumference, and the pistol's grip fits my hand fairly well. However, if my hand were just a little bit larger I would have to remove the palm rest. If you are trying to decide whether to buy a .177 or .22 caliber pistol perhaps this chart will help you.
