    Webley Tempest Grip Upgrade

    .

    After I had this Webley Tempest awhile, I decided that I wanted some grips made of wood ILO the issue plastic.

    It seemed these days that aftermarket wood grips for it are unobtainium, so I ordered a chunk of wood and carved out a set.







    They feel a LOT better than the plastic fantastic originals...

    Those look great! I have a Webley Tempest myself and a pile of black walnut lumber...

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I've got a Tempest, too. Great plinker. I've got wood galore, but no talent. You did a nice job.

    Tempest here too. Shot many corners off of S & H Green stamps on cardboard across the living room back in the day.

    My amendment can beat up your amendment.

    Is the Tempest a pellet gun?

    I remember what a treat it was to get stuff with the green stamps. Times have changed.

    Nice! I bought a factory set of wood grips many many years ago. Mine is very useful for almost silent backyard mouse sniping!
