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 converted to a armories cut away gun. All Mk1 guns were black powder guns.

You can see from this photo that this is a Mk1 and not a Mk1* as the shield has not been modified.

Later Mk1 were converted to Mk1* and Mk1** with the addition of a Mk2 pistol shield that was dovetailed into its breech and by adding a new barrel and cylinder.
