did you see the cal ?

Nope....but rest assured I'll applaud you if it's .22, but smite you if it's weedy seven seven.

TBH, Webley should have only made it in .22.....as how can you be a Vulcan owning God if it's the lesser calibre? :o :o


Here's a bit of (maybe) useless info.........did you know Vulcan is the Roman God of Fire (and volcanos) and also Metalworking/the Forge.

Very apt for the product, don't you think? :)

My first high power rifle was a Vulcan mk1. I called it my wobbly Vulcan because there was around 1mm clearance in the breech jaws. It would shoot to the left and then to the right , depending on what hand you cocked it with . The toolmaker at the firm I was with at the time machined a large steel shim to take up the clearance. I also did away with the parallel breech pin and bolted it using a threaded hollow pin, with a socket screw at each end. It was a .22 as well , as were the first three rifles I owned. I also shortened the piston to increase the stroke but that put it way over the limit, around 14fpe IIRC. Later I bought a De-Luxe in . 177. I made an adjustable trigger for that. Still single stage but you could adjust the amount of sear engagement. They both went when the HW77 came out. I even had an Omega for a while - that was a nice rifle.

You've already had 'em!!! ::)



That breech jaw mod sounds great Mel.......pity Webley didn't do it in the first place though!! ::)

Webley did bring out a suedo two stage trigger on other rifles in the range which used the same trigger unit in the late 90's early 00's, and that could be retro-fitted to the Vulcan if you so wished. It didn't alter sear engagement at all, but just offered a sprung first stage to give the feel of it being two-stage........so I never bothered.

I did the same breech pin mod on a brand new BSA lightning . When I was running the kids club a father came down with his boys, new rifle. Turned out to be one of the first to be made in Spain. Every time the rifle was cocked the pin would work it,s way out to one side, suggesting the holes were not square to the cylinder. The pin had worked out so far it was actually starting to split the stock ! So, he agreed to let me do the mod. It never worked loose again. It,s an easy mod if, like everything else, you have a lathe and milling machine. Just use silver steel then, after threading , harden it. Simples.
