Production of the original Tempest started in 1979 and was the result of Webley returning to a more compact design following some adverse feedback from customers who found the Hurricane a bit too cumbersome to handle and shoot. Until 1981 the pistol had its name displayed as a single word, ‘Tempest’ at each side of the plastic for end. Other marking, in the form of ‘Webley & Scott Ltd Birmingham England’ on the underside of the fore end. After July 1981, however the pistol name was changed to ’Webley Tempest’ applied in a slightly different font. At the same time, the factory identification became ‘Webley & Scott Ltd Made in England’. An additional symbol in the form of a letter F with a pentagon was also added to all pistols except those designated for export to the USA. This example is an un-used 1981 pistol in .22 calibre in its original box with original un-opened Webley pellets, Webley paper targets with target holder (un-opened) and sight adjustment key. It has its Webley swing tag, final inspection card/ dated guarantee card (25th July 1981) and care and maintenance sheet. It appears that this pistol was purchased on the 25th July 1981 not used and left in a cupboard until now! You will find it extremely difficult to find a pre-1981 in such original un-used condition anywhere else. The price includes UK delivery.
