"Webley Air Rifles" comprises a comprehensive history of all the air rifles made by the company between 1925 and 2005; from the introduction of the Mark 1, right through to modern pre-charged guns such as the Venom Viper.
Beyond dealing with the rifles themselves, this book also covers the circumstances under which the early rifles were introduced, together with information as to how and why they were subsequently developed in the way they were.
It also examines the myriad of fascinating accessories produced to complement the Webley air rifle, together with a chapter discussing the various promotional aids and advertising material used.
All these artefacts are supported by color photographs, some of which have never been published before.
This is a book not just for those who collect Webley air rifles, but for anyone interested in how one of England's greatest firearms manufacturers introduced a fascinating range of air rifles and accessories, the popularity of which is still great after some eighty years of production.
