Webley Tempest springs?

    Recommended Posts

    I was looking on you tube at one thing and another and I spotted an American chap doing a review on a Tempest.

    I had one of these as a kid and absolutely loved it! (As a side not, I just Googled one, and I cannot believe the price of them now!)

    So the chap in the review said that the spring in the .22 is more powerful than the one in the .177.

    So just as a thought, would the .22 spring fit in the .177 Tempest?

    Would it make a more powerful gun? Distance? Power?

    “Jeremy Clarkson” POWER!!!!

    I don’t thing the springs are calibre specific. Both .22 & .177 tempests produce around 3:1/2 ft lbs energy on average. I have an early senior .22 that is slightly more powerful than that, with original eley wasps it’s at 400 fps.

    I have a .177 origional one from early 90s I think and it makes 3 fpe .with most pellets I move tried 

    I love mine for a bit of a plink in the garden .Excellent gun and plenty accurate  for tins out to 25 yds.

    I bought one with my first yts pay packet in 1987 , what a total waste of £20 and I was only on £26.50 a week.

    would have been better throwing it at the target then trying to shoot the thing

    Bought a mint sleeper for £50 2 years ago in .22.

    Extremly accurate and well built.

    As Ultrastu says , minute of bean can out to 25y !
