Building a Replica Webley-Whiting Air Pistol

A place to discuss all things Webley. As this is probably the most collected airgun maker we felt it deserved a section of its own.

Hi Leonard,

What a superb example of engineering craftsmanship rarely seen today. I have always really loved the appearance of the Whiting pistol, so reminiscent of Webleys early semi-automatic pistols. Shame that at it didn't make at least limited production.

Thanks for sharing progress and pictures.

Regards

What an excellent build.

It's a great pity that there are getting fewer and fewer people capable of such a build.

Kind regards,

Excellent work.

Did they ever have a shoulder stock?

Kind regards,

Thanks Phil.
No - there was never a shoulder stock for the gun.
Webley only made one prototype, and that is as far as it went.
There have been several replicas made, but to my knowledge, none of them has ever been fitted with a shoulder stock either.
