    Default Webley MK VI

    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 prettiest straw color I've ever seen.

    Hi Gary,
    that is the best iv seen for ages, it is a better finish than the W.W.2
    .38, you are very lucky to be able to shoot it. I have a 1940,s
    .38, but only in deac here in England. I would love to own one.
    Is it a .455 ?.

    Hi Dave,

    Your de-ac is a mark IV(4) in .38/200 calibre.Gary's is a mark VI(6) in .455 calibre. The IV was bought in during the 1930's as a replacement for the heavier loaded VI. The .38/200(Grains) was also very popular with police forces and public shooters up till very recently, i wouldn't mind betting some are still in police armouries in the u.k today, having sustained very little wear.

    The Mk.VI(6) was probably one of the heaviest loaded break-barrel pistols ever built, but that is just my opinion.

    Regards, Ned.

    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.
