I found someone selling a webley tempest, I asked how much and they said "Make an Offer"

Can you tell me what this gun would be worth in good, fair and poor condition - this way when I see it I'll know what to offer.

Thanks!

I bought one 5 yrs ago from AL SIMMONDS gun shop for $250.00 + tax. I sold it in new condition less than 60 shots and I was lucky to get $150.00 for it. Some people have them and think they are worth a fortune but I don't know why. They are not very accurate and power wise they are only good for hunting mice.

A normal Webley owner/lover certainly would know how much it is worth and what to ask for. If the guy said make him an offer, I suspect that he got it from God-know-where.

I was talking to my friend a couple of evenings ago. He said somebody broke into his locker and stole his collection including a few Webleys. He was supposed to sell me his Junior, a Tempest and a Hurricane and another Mark I. I have since been checking on the Craiglist and have not seen any surfacing yet. Ask him a few questions about the Webleys and the Tempest. You will get the picture very quickly. Where are you located, out in the West Coast?

I'm not on the coast, this guy is legit, he also has a model 94 win. in .32 and a couple other airguns. I'm looking at them all, I might lowball him on the webley. I wondered if anyone knew the book value?

I bought an almost like new Tempest for $200. A not-so-new, but it has been shot extensively, for $160. I just bought another one that has not been shot extensively but it has been thrown around in a fishing tackle box for $100. So take your pick. If the barrel wriggles left and right in a lifted-up position, it has been cocked extensively. Give him $150 for it.
