    Multi Stroke pump up Air Pistols

    Every now and again I get a hankering for a reasonable quality Single/Multi Stroke pump up Air Pistol in 0.177 cal that's capable of power outputs approaching 6ftlbs or so with only two or three pumps max. From memory, Webley used to do one (the Alecto I think it was called), are they still available ? If not, is there a similar (or better) item available out there that I should look for, and if so, what sort of money should I expect to pay for one ?

    All replies appreciated, Vic Thompson.

    Alecto comes well recommended, very accurate and quiet with a mod fitted. 3 pumps gave around 5.5ft lbs. Mine wasn't pellet fussy either - only got rid of to trade up to a HW44.

    The Alecto was a rebadged Zoracki HP-01, which is still made.

    The Webley Alecto, also know as the Zoraki, is still available. My wife uses one with just a single pump for 6yard paper punching. As you say, 3 pumps and it is 5.5-6, as compared to the Crosman 1377 which takes 10 pumps to get to 5.5fpe.
    Definitely recommend the Alecto for handing, accuracy and consistency.
