i have just came across the revolver pictured below.
I have identified it as Webley Pryse revolver, could anyone please confirm? I am for sure not an expert in British revolvers!
However, the more important thing is - when do you thing this little beauty was produced? In the Czech Republic where I live it is possible to purchase any firearm manufactured before 1890 without the necessity to obtain any permission. => I would like to be sure that this one was made before 1890 so that I could legally buy it as a gift to my father (who is not a firearms license holder). Clearly, the declaration of the seller that it is pre-1890 is not sufficient for me.
Thank you for any hints!
If you need more pictures for identification, I can post them.
hi, thank you for the link but I would say that "my" revolver is none of those the typical Webleys Mk.I-IV. and that it is a little different type. If you look closely it has certain differences from the typical Webley, so the research will be a little more difficult...
I think this is the African model, The Pryse commenced production in 1876 and possibly ended in 1880 or 82. So Ithink you will be OK, especially if there is no date on it.
Thank you very much!
I have too found the information about 1876/7 as the year when the production was commenced, but no information as to when they ended it..
Do you have any idea about the worth of the piece? The links above show prices that to me seem quite shocking. However I am not sure this is based on reality and is applicable on the one I was offered? Thank you!
