In at least 96% very sharp condition we have a top example of the British Army Issued Webley Mark IV .455 Service Revolver. This is unit marked and dated 1913 and certainly would have been in the thick of the early fighting at the outbreak of WWI. The revolver is all matching and the bore is mint and of course it is still in the original .455 Webley caliber, it does not have an altered cylinder to shoot .45acp as most do.
The Webley Mark IV Service Revolver is commonly referred to as the “Boer War Model“. They were purchased in large numbers by the British Army from 1899-1904. And were the primary sidearm of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War. In 1914, at the Outbreak of WWI this is was still the primary side arm and most of them were lost during the early years of combat. If you are a British Serving Officer and you are about to jump into a trench full of Huns this is exactly what you will need to settle all accounts in your favor; this thing is murderous at close range! What a fantastic piece of WWI!
