In 96% very sharp original condition, we have a very nice find for the Webley collectors out there, a circa 1917 Webley Mark VI .455 Service Revolver. This is a commercially marked piece that would have been made available for Officer Private purchase, as officers were usually required to obtain their own sidearms in the British Army. This pistol is of course still in the original .455 Webley chambering, it is all matching with a mint bore and fine-looking grips.
The big .455 Webley Mark VI is one of the most Iconic arms of the British Empire, one only has to watch the movie “Lawrence of Arabia” to see them being waved all over the place. These big Webley’s were known proven man-stoppers and your best friend in the trench. When these revolvers were brought into the country back in the 1950’s most of the were modified to shoot .45 acp ammunition by shaving down the back of the cylinder, which ruins the collector value. We only ever sell these in the collector grade original .455 caliber.
