    ...been thinking about getting one of the Alecto Ultras for awhile. I checked the Pyramyd Air site and they're not listing them any more. Same with Airguns of Arizona. Airgun Depot only has left-hand models.

    I found the standard models on Amazon and Wal-Mart online and from some overseas stores but it looks like the Ultras aren't available anywhere.

    It looks like the vendors are selling off their stock and not getting new ones in...

    Has anyone heard any official word?

    No official word, but I got one of the last 4 available here in the States from Internet sellers.

    The Alecto is a rebranded Zoraki HP-01, so they should still be available, just under a different name.

    Well that blows, I wanted one... I remember some people having problems so maybe that did them in? Interesting about the Zoraki, I had no idea... I thought it was an all new Webley design. Has anyone seen the Zoraki for sale in the US? Internet says Turkey, which I suppose makes sense since Webley had them make some other guns that used to be made in England.

    If you want a standard model, you can probably still get one if you poke around. The Ultras seem to be gone.

    I've never seen the gun for sale in the U.S. under the Zoraki brand name--does anyone know of a U.S. seller who imports them?

    Zoraki HP-01 2

    Hi
    Just to reassure you that these und are still available. They seem to be sold directly by the manufacturer (Atak Arms) and they have rebranded the pistols with a new model number "2" which has an upgraded trigger. Just bought mine and very keen to see how it performs. Regards Pete.

    Is there a U.S. distributor?

    Not that I know of, which means little to nothing.

    BUT, and here you go, there are still some Webley branded Alecto's available on E-Bay.

    Zoraki HP01 2 .22

    Hi. I've just picked up a brand new .22 HP-01 2 (Model 2) with a redesigned trigger in New Zealand. I would reccomed you approach the manufacturer direct to see if there is a US importer (http://atakarms.com). Hope that helps. I also saw a .20 Webley Aletco version on sale in the UK.

    Just spent 4hrs on the gun and it is fabulous! Very pleased.

    Hope you manage to get hold of one.

    Regards Peter
