    Nice pistol and hard to find. I own its brother but have never fired it since I can't find any ammunition.

    Excellent example you have-a couple of pics in service with the RN including the fightingest sailor the Navy had produced since Nelson-Air Commodore C R Samson RN, RAF.

    Excellent. Good pics.
    You need a Webley-Fosbery auto-revolver to go with that!;-)

    Doubt I'll find an original Webley-Fosbery at an affordable price but I read somewhere that a reproduction is in the works - maybe that'll be worth a look!

    The .455 Navy pistol is awesome, a very interesting one.
    I have been looking for one for a while.
    It was actually a very potent handgun for it's size, a wolf in sheep's clothing - which I find interesting.
    I have a package of ammo for it - I would send you these in any other situation, except I want to find one of the pistols for my collection, lol.

    If it means anything I had a Fosbery for some time - and the automatic you own is a more interesting pistol to me.
    If I were given the chance to have either for my collection now, it would be the Navy.
    *My Fosbery also refused to shoot in semi-automatic and always caused a bit of a fuss at the range.

    Video of it not shooting semi-auto.
    edited - PM me and I will send it to you

    My Fosberry worked flawlessly and is incredibly accurate. My brother shot a 5 shot group with it at 50 feet that was one ragged hole.

    As for my all matching 1913 MK I Navy I have never been able to shoot it because I have never foud ant ammo for it. Even if I had the Fosberyy is still my favorite.

    Nice Samnev,

    I found the .455 auto ammo on Gunbroker, I believe - you can find it now and then.
    It was about $100 for the package.

    Pit.
