Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - Webley -- Mk VI .455 Revolver - Uncut British WWI

NO RESERVE AUCTION : This is a British Webley Mark VI revolver manufactured in 1918. This revolver is all original and still chambered for the .455 Webley cartridge. The cylinder has not been cut (many were gunsmith modified to shoot .45 ACP in moon clips). Very good original condition with approximately 50% original fading blue finish remaining. The serial numbered parts are properly matching and it fires very well. It is quite accurate considering the size of the round. The mechanics are in good working order and the bore is excellent - very bright with sharp rifling. Comes with a WWII issue Australian Army cleaning rod and a box of Fiocchi .455 cartridges (the Mk V & VI are the only models proofed to shoot modern smokeless powder). Buyer pays $30.00 shipping. Your C&R license is acceptable for transfer if permitted in your area.

Questions for Users
(Public)   
    Q:  I am interested in your gun. Can you answer the following: Several of the cylinders look a little rough, is that pitting or carbon build-up? Is the lock-up tight? Do you have a better picture of the cylinder face? 01/19/2012
        A:  Sorry for the poor quality of the photos - I'm more used to a scanner than a camera. I tried 5 different light sources for the rifling shots, but could not find the proper lighting. I'll try a few cylinder closeups tomorrow & hope for better results. The bore and cylinders are actually in near mint condition making the wear on the cylinder catch suggest a previous owner regularly practicing loading/reloading (not a bad habit). The fragments you see in the cylinders are the result of using cotton balls instead of cloth I guess. Hope this helps - this has been my nightstand weapon for over 10 years so I trust it very much! Thanks for your inquiry. 01/21/2012

    Q:  Hello Anton, I am interested in this old Webley. Can you tell me any more about it? History or unit marks, etc? Thanks in advance. CR 02/25/2012
        A:  Hi - I've had this Mk 6 for over 10 years now. It's been my trusted house gun, but my wife can no longer manage the tob break release lever (arthiritis). I bought it from an old GI who had it since the late 1950's. I have fired it several times and found it to be reliable & accurate with little recoil or muzzle flip. I still have a LOT of ammo for it. I don't know much about the markings other than they are the original British factory & proof marks. This was never fired much, so it may have never been in the armed forces or belonged to an officer or doctor (who often bought their side arms independently). Thanks for your inquiry! Regards, Daniel / anton 02/26/2012
