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. The modifications that occurred were to the frame, hammer and the changing of the machined in shield to one that was a separate hardened steel shield.
