Hello all!!

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you all for letting me become a member of the community.

While I am new here, I have been a long time member of CanadianGunnutz!!

I have been involved in shooting and reloading for a long time.

However as of late I have noticed my pistol shooting skills really need work.

In an effort to get more trigger time, I have decided to dust off an old Webely Hurricane I got as a teenager, but it needs some work.

As a result I have stumbled across this board, and I am very glad I did!!

Thank you all for your time!

I look forward to learning new things, and being part of some interesting discussions.

Warmest regards

AbH

Hi - welcome to the CAF!

The Webley Hurricane is a classic - hopefully you will be able to fix it back to it's normal operation.

Lots of helpful members here and tons of useful info; as well.

:)

Thank you for the kind greeting!!

The pistol still works, quite well actually, and has not really seen that many rounds.

It's just the grips. I shoot left handed and those target style grips are just terribly right handed.

Though they are getting harder to find, you can still get replacement parts, thought some of the harder to find parts may need to come from the UK.

The Webley & Scott Tempest/Hurricane seem to be quite popular over there even though production ceased in 2005.

There are quite a few threads/post/blogs on rebuilding/refurbishing these air pistols.

Any how I have rambled on long enough.

Thx all for your time

regards

AbH
