Webley Mk6

With the Mark 6 Webley revolver coming about in and being approved for service in May of 1915 it officially became the issue hand gun in British service. 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 for the .455 cartridge.  The grip style had been changed as well as a minor change to the front sight.
