Webley Target MK11 for 10 Metre?

Postby fronteria » Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:07 am

I am going to try using one of my 1920's Webley MK11 Targets pistols to have a go at 10 metre target shooting.
What are the chances of me doing any good against the latest Co. 2 and precharged pistols?
Or am I wasting my time.

Hi Jeff,

The Mk2 Target is not really a serious competition pistol, but should be capable of regularly holding the black aiming area on the current NSRA 10 metre card which is 60mm in diameter.

I have a Mk2 Target, but have not really found it to be any more accurate than the Mk1 which I shoot regularly. The group below is typical of what can be obtained from these pistols if you do your part. As with all spring powered air pistols it's critical to ensure you remain on aim for 3-4 secs seconds (follow through) after releasing the shot as Iv'e found this to be the factor that most seriously affects accuracy. The later 'slant grip' pistols are easier to shoot as they seem to sit in the hand a bit better, but I much prefer the appearance of the 'straight grip' models.

These pistols are a lot harder to consistently match the PCP's for accuracy, but when you do it puts a much bigger smile on your face.

Hi. Brian
If I can produce a group like yours I will be more than happy, I have quite a few Webley Air Pistol so maybe I should try several of them to see which one groups best for me with the selection of ammunition I have.
Is your pistol better at grouping with one type of ammunition over another the same as nearly all my rifle are.

Hi Jeff,
I only use .177 when trying to shoot decent groups with a springer and use H&N Pistol Match as these lighter pellets also perform well in my BSA Improved Mod D air rifles.

They are quite expensive and RWS Hobby shoot quite well, but with less consistency.

Hi. Brian
I was useless at getting a fair size group with the pistol, but one of the other members shot five old Webley pellets from the 1960's (I had a damaged tin full with the voucher for a Webley badge still in it) and scored 2X Bulls,2X8's and a 7 on the NSRA 10 metre target.
I think I will stick to black powder shooting at least I can say I couldn't see the target through the smoke which has some resemblance to the truth!

Jeff practice makes perfect mate, I still use my original 6G with good results and I use RWS Meisterkugein match pellet's little more expensive but my choice mate. The R10 pellets are on par I think. :D

Hello Jeff,

I also shoot black powder revolvers and have found air pistol shooting an excellent way to reinforce the need for 'follow through' as the 'lock time' on these pistols is similarly slow making this an essential part of the shot release.

I mainly shoot a Uberti Remington NMA or Colt Navy, but do also occasionally shoot a Colt Dragoon which is too much gun for me, nevermind a Walker !

Whatcha chaps,
Sorry to post this in the pistol section, but it is a related topic. I have just started target shooting with a MK1 Webley Service air rifle and have a few questions i'am hoping could get answered. I would like to adjust the trigger pull, to make lighter, using the adjustment screw but have no idea as to whether it should wind in (cw) or out (ccw). As its a very rare and rather expansive model I dont want to do any damage, any ideas.
Also as i'am new to the sport and collecting air weapons, lots of deacs and WW2 milliteria, can anybody recommend a good gin smith to service the rifle? I live in South Essex.
I'am also in the process of looking at a Webley MK1 pistol and a MK2 target pistol to also target shoot with, any particular pro's and con's for each pistol?
Thanks for your time and patience as this is my first post.
Kind regards & TTFN,
Gary
BASH ON!!
