Another Webley pistol

On the way back from Oregon my wife and I stopped at a friends house in Nevada. In his very nice collect was a New Zealand marked Mk 6 revolver.

The pistol has been shaved to allow the use of the 45 auto rim or the 45acp with the 1/2 moon clip.

Webley 22lr pistol

A webley Mk 4 in 22lr. I am not sure the date that these were made,but it would have to be post WW2.

Looking at the pictures you can see that the pistol grip is shortened and the cylinder is modified.

You can see the differences between it and the Mk4 revolver that it was suppose to replace. The pistol came with a 6″ barrel and was chambered […]

Mk4 Webley .455

Unfortunately I have no Mk3 pistol in my collection, maybe someday. The next in line is the Mk4 pistol in .455. This pistol was accepted into service in October 1899. Commonly call the Boer war pistol. It was the pistol supplied by the British government for troops sent to South Africa to fight the Boors. […]

Webley Mk2

The second pistol in the series in the Mk2 revolver. By 1894 a number of changes had occurred to the Mk1 to warrant a new nomenclature. Thus the Mk2 was born.

Webley Mk 1

I have decided to do a short series of posts on the Webley and Enfield revolvers in my collection. The first of the series is the Mk1 455 revolver.

The one in my collection is a cut away pistol.

This is one of any order of 10,000 pistols bought in 1887. This pistol was later […]
