Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the Webley Tempest is very good, being that it is single action, there is next to no take-up and the pull itself is very light, yet not so light that you would accidentally shoot the gun. This helps a lot with accuracy. And to top it off, you can even adjust the trigger pull weight to your liking from 3-5 pounds!

Accuracy: Being that the Webley Tempest is a spring piston design, there is a noticeable amount of felt recoil when the spring snaps backwards, and I say backwards because it compresses towards the front of the gun. With many spring piston rifles the spring snaps forwards almost giving a reverse recoil effect. The Webley Tempest recoil hits you in a familiar direction which made the airgun feel a bit more natural and I believe helped me to get a nice 1.5 inch, 5 shot grouping from 30 feet out in a semi-rested position. I also got a 400 FPS average rating form my .22 caliber, 11.9 grain RWS pellets which took me right up to the Canadian limit of 5.7 Joules. This is just within the limits of the uncontrolled firearm status for an airgun.

Build Quality: Build quality is very good, most of the gun is all metal with a few plastic parts, basically the nose cap and hand grips, everything else is metal on the Tempest. The Webley Tempest has a nice compact size for a spring piston design and has a nice weight to it making it feel very solid but not overly heavy. I do have to say the cocking effort is very heavy and you will have to try a few different techniques until you find a way that works for you.

Realism: This is not a replica airgun but the basic pistol grips and trigger are designed to replicate a revolver more than anything. The Tempest is very unique and its basic design roots go back to the 1920's.

Pros:

  • Very accurate for a spring piston air pistol
  • One crank - one shot
  • Mostly metal and very solid!
  • Fully adjustable rear sight for windage and elevation
  • Small and compact yet very effective power
  • Trigger pull adjustable from 3-5 pounds

Cons:

  • If you're left handed the grips will not be as comfortable for you
  • Sight adjustment will take some time to get right
  • Spring recoil takes some getting used to so practice - practice - practice
  • Cocking effort especially on the .22 caliber model is very heavy

Comments: Some people may qualify the fact that this "new version" is now made in Turkey but with that said I have been selling the Turkish made Webley Alecto for some time now and it has been one of my most trouble free airguns in the web-store. The Tempest looks to me to be just as well-made and a nice perk with the Turkish-made Tempest is its jump in velocity with the .22 actually hitting 400 FPS. I also really like the small size this airgun has, it's no larger or heavier than say a Beretta 92 yet somehow it has to cram all the mechanics for the spring piston design into it and still get good performance. The only real reason I would not recommend this gun to some people is if you are of slight build or perhaps have some hand or wrist problems because it does take some effort to cock this gun. If this is a factor for you, you may want to go with the .177 caliber version as it does have a lighter cocking effort.
