Who is/was "Airgunsport Ltd"? They bought the Webley name and now sell a completely different product line. I am getting the idea they are basically just a distributor who is slapping the Webley name on a couple of foreign-made airguns.

Also, is there anyone still holding a parts inventory for older Webley products (i.e. airguns made before Airgunsport became involved) like the Tempest, Hurricane, etc.?

Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Eric
Airgunsport were just a supplier of airguns and accessories, but they bought Webley when it went bust, Basically what they did was shut down the manufacturing, ship the equipment to Turkey and start making Webleys there, but all ready the quality as dropped, although some airgun mag's still give good reviews but there again the reviewer gets the sample either cheap of free, I know this is true because one reviewer said as much.
Before I bought the B4 I was looking at a new Webley Exocet and the finish was not up to standard with a very cheap safety switch, they still shoot well but thats not everything.
Airgunsport also supply Logun, Crossman and AGS, they also put the Webley name on accessories made by anyone, It's the same with Logun, Airgunsport own the name, but most Loguns are made by different firms around the world and the Logun logo is stuck on other peoples accessories the same as Webley

Nobody bought up the older parts inventory or the "rights" to make service parts for them?

Seems that basically all the "current" Webleys are not using any of the same guns or names that they did a few years back.

As far as I know only John Knibbs and Chambers do spares, John Knibbs never seems to have any these days and chambers only has a limited supply. I have been looking for a mkll pistol barrel for two years now without any luck.

That's a shame. Webley was one of my favorites.

I just want to discuss about the UK people thinking. who have claim that the Google map is also responsible for security issues in the UK. I don't think there is some thing like that Google map is very helpful and most of people use it.

so what you people think about it.

I see Mr. "Addison" now has a link to some sales BS- good call on the spammer there Al. "He" or "she" or "it" is now deleted.

Your alter-ego "Madison_some_BS_whatever..." has also been removed.
