1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    this is my old faithful webley .22. i love it so much and so does my son. it might not be the most powerful piece in the world but i love the fun factor and its good practice for aiming. just gave it a oil inside and seems to have a bit more power. and also its a hand down to my son when hes older. thinking of new grips and a paint job to asshes 30+ years old.

    I love my .22 Tempest. It was given to me by a good friend who didn't want it any more (more fool him). As you say not the most powerful of pistols but always nice to shoot.

    Only thing is the cocking.. It ruins my hands after around 20 or so shots.. My Hw45 is easier on the hands...:)


    Edit: Careful with the oiling. You might produce dieseling which is not good for the spring..

    It ruins your hands Barce, and we thought you were the hard man of the forum, next thing your be telling us, is you walk around the house with an appron on, with a long stick with feathers on the end...............Careful with the oiling, its only going to make your hands even softer. ; )
