Webley Alecto Mk V


Recommended Posts

Heading into the unknown here. If I was to get the Subject pistol in 177 flavour, could anyone kindly tell me what optic would suffice when the max range of some 25 yards is taken into account and which would not interfere with the cocking of the pistol? 

Many thanks.

Hi wymberley .

I've long wanted an alecto and when the chance arose  I declined it. I found the pistol grip far too cramped for my average sized hands..

 The gun is fine and I like the triple power option  .

Trigger good too . If your looking at scopes  a 2x mag scope will serve well don't be tempted by a much higher mag .they are almost impossible  to see your target through unless your bench rested and thats not what pistols are for .

A decent red dot will go well and a dot of 3 or 4 moa (not 5 ) should  not obscure  the target too much at 25 yds  .

 

 

 

I have  a crosman 1377 with a cheap enough  smk 2x  pistol  scope on top it is more than accurate  enough  out to 25 yds 

And the scope certainly  makes you more accurate  than open sights at range .

I use mine without optics as most don't like to be used as a cocking handle! I would say some of the hawk reflect optics are tough or buy a cheap optic and don't worry if you bend the tube. the last option is a short style reflect sight like say the Walther  but then that just means less area to slam the upper frame down with.

Slight pause perhaps while I clarify is there or is there not a Mark 6 which may just apply to 177 and has just 2 power levels instead of the three - needs looking into.

Checked it out and the retailer agreed it was a non too well worded advert - Mk V it is.

Best optics are lasers as someone else has done, set two up one above barrel and one below, one red one green. Pick your zero distanceand set them both to hit same spot at that like the dambusters sighting in the bombers.

If closer or further you can tell by where the lasers dots are and can use them for aiming.

Nephew has the Zoraki same gun, I find it very accurate.

@ Figgy,

Many thanks. My OP initial phrase applies here. As I see it, the red dot is a sight and a laser is an illumination. I've bought a cheap and cheerful red dot just to get me going so can be discarded without a problem. Can the laser illuminator be seen when out 'in the sticks'?

I had no problems seeing it at 36meters in my garden. 

At 25 meters it's bright. If direct mid day sunshinenidms shining in your target it might be a bit faint.

Thanks again. I'll see how we get on - hopefully at the weekend. If necessary, I have my eye on the Walther Micro Shot.
