I've been window shopping online and can't seem to find the Alecto available anywhere. Did I miss something? I thought this was a current production gun?

It's no longer in production. They come up for sale occasionally on the for sale part of the forum, though. I picked one up a little while back, and highly recommend it.

The Webley branded Alecto is no longer available.

It's now Zoraki available from several places....including the following

Amazon

eBay

Walmart

I believe I know of one available in Ontario, .177cal
I think they want $245 for it.
You could get 5 P17s for that!

P17's can't even be considered to compare. I have a HP-01 in .25 and hits very close to 500fps :wink:

Sadly our walmarts up here don't carry too many "exotic'" guns.

$245 doesn't actually sound too bad?

Maybe I'll check with mrmarvin....

My understanding is that there are no parts available for the Alecto?

And that they are not an entirely problem free setup. Seals go etc and there is nothing available.

A P17 runs on like 2 o-rings...very serviceable.

Not the same gun it's true but actually fixable.

I think the only problems with the Alecto/Zoraki come from abuse, they are over pumped and many fool
with the valve to jack up the fps. and more, many have complaints about their guns and many other things for that
matter, but fail to admit what tampering they have done to cause their own problems.
I love My two Alectos! and in fact have just purchased a brand new, Webley Nemesis!

I saw the gunnutz discussion too; if spares for repair are important I wouldn't buy one in the first place.

As of yesterday there was a 22 on the replica airguns site. Not cheap.
