    A couple photos of my .38 Caliber Webley MK IV with proper kit for the Canadian Army and the RCAF. The Army group has a cut down version of the Tankers Leg Holster, complete with cleaning rod and "ammo" as well as the traditional .38 caliber holster.

    It may well be a police version, since the MK IV .38 was initially produced in 1923 for police use. From what I understand, the Mk IV .38 is a scaled down version of
    the .455. The .455 went thru 6 different marks and 6 barrel lengths until being phased out in 1932; MK I & II had a 4" barrel, the Mk III thru V had a 5" barrel, and the MK VI had 6" barrels.

    Commercial .38 MkIVs have a variety of barrel lengths-3, 4 or 5 "-military models of both the Webley and Enfield .38 revolvers have only a 5" barrel-available stocks of the commercial pattern were taken into service at the start of the war as pistols were in short supply. Good service webbing you have there!

    Beautiful Webley and holsters...
    The shorter barrel has a certain appeal than the standard one...
