Thumbs Up

They are interesting old guns. Yours looks like a nice example. My 1918 MKVI is far from pristine, but has a shiny bore and chambers and still functions as it should. I enjoy taking it to the range every now and then.

BTW, I chronographed some of the Fiocchi .455 ammo, obtained from SGAMMO IIRC. It averaged only about 550 FPS in my gun. Very mild load.

Very cool. Webley's are pretty darn collectable and nice guns ta boot. Have you shot it?

Sam Andrews of Andrew's leather is a collector of Webley's. I've got several of his holsters and they are quality leather. A couple of years ago I was ordering another one and he asked if I ever saw the remake of the Magnificent Seven that came out a few years before that. At the time I hadn't. Long story shortened, he made all the period holsters for that movie and in one scene Chris Pratt uses Andrew's small size Webley Bulldog to "shoot" one of the bad guys. Here's a link to the holsters for the movie and also shows his webley: Andrews Leather Exotic Skins Catalog
