PostSubject: Webley Eclipse how to strip down?   Thu Jan 12, 2012 12:42 pm

My recent acquisition, the lovely Webley Eclipse is running a little under powered, the best I can get is 10.5ftlbs with Superdomes.
I've stripped a fair few guns before but looking at the diagram on Chamber's website, this one looks like it could be tricky. Does anyone have any pointers before I take the plunge?
As far as I know there are no guides online, but I could be wrong.

Any help much appreciated.

That's usually my way as well. I've spoken to a gunsmith that's done one before so I've got a couple of pointers.
When I do get around to doing it I'll do a proper thread with pictures so there will finally be a guide on the internet.

Try and can hold of an original owners manual as it has a step by step factory guide.I could copy mine and email it to you but would take a while to do.

It does mention tying the saftey catch as there is a small ball bearing that will fall out.
A long time has passed since I open an Eclispe but what I remember it is quite simple and easy to work one.

Thanks for that, I have heard about the safety catch but one other thing that bothers me is apparently you need to take the trigger apart and it is difficult to get back together. I've done a couple of different triggers before and had trouble with both (got there in the end though Laughing ).
A copy of the manual would be useful, I'll keep a look out but if you do get the time my email is ian@activeshooter.co.uk .
Many thanks for the replies. I'll keep you up to date when I finally get round to doing it Smile
