Article about: This is the best one of these I have ever handled(maybe even as good as one of Bills!) And I will be keeping this one for a looooong time! It is uncut and the recoil shield still has the pre

    I have the Mark VI naval revolver but it is missing two screws, hand guards and the lanyard ring. I'm a good enough machinist to make the screws and lanyard ring to original specs...if I can find the original specs.

    I can order the hand guards but I anyone knows where I can order the screws or get the blueprints I'd appreciate a source for these.

    I have just come across a Silver (looks like chrome) webley mk 6 455. the cylinder looks unmodified but has a lot of play in it. were there any original silver finished mk 6 or did someone ruin this one?

    It doesn't make any difference what you paid for it. It is worth every penny, especially since it has been shaved for 45 ACP. That is the nicest Mk VI I have seen in a loooooog time, great pickup. I am jealous as well.

    Hi Dave,
    Based on the fact that there is a Broad Arrow acceptance stamp I have to assume it was not a private purchase weapon.
    Despite the fact it has a government acceptance stamp, it is still possible it was purchased and owned by an officer. All issue items had a price, which was used for unit accounting purposes as well as allowing items to be purchased through Army stores. I have a copy of the complete Priced Vocabulary of Stores for 1915, and here is the page showing the Pistol, Webley, with 6-inch Barrel, Mark VI:

    As you can see, it was a brand new item at the time, and has been added in by hand. Cost of the pistol was 3/4/6 (three pounds, four shillings and sixpence), which would be 3.23 in modern UK money and therefore $4.99 in USD!

    A beautiful gun, BTW
