    Default Return of the Webley Service Revolver?

    Hi Guys,

    Just saw this new model of the Webley Mk VI that is being re-manufactured here in the U.K. (for export only) from the original factory drawings by bespoke gunmakers Anderson Wheeler, who make the double rifle as seen in the Bond movie "Skyfall".

    The design has been modified to be a 7 shot cylinder that takes a .357 Mag cartridge. They have therefore christened it as the "Mark VII". They reckon on producing around 50 a year, but at around 6,500 these smoke wagons ain't cheap! Still, it's a beautiful looking piece, I wonder if some of our colonial members across the Atlantic may be tempted?

    And a short video featuring the maker.....I like his blazer, but the unmatching cravat and handkerchief is an unforgivable faux pas.



    I wonder if they'll beef up the calibre as an option in the future?

    Regards, Ned.

    I would love to own one but it is a bit pricey for me.

    There's nothing better than shooting a few natives before breakfast my old dad used to say......
