Webleys

Dromias MK VI, and myMKIV.

These pistols are held on a section 7/3 authourisation and have to be kept at a designated range.

SHame you guys can't keep 'em at home. Much like our citizens from Chicago or Washington DC. :(

My Mark VI

Postby PeterN2 » Wed Jul 27, 2005 4:01 pm

This I keep at home under Section 7/1. It is dated 1918 and so just made the cut off date. I bought it in 1984 from a local policeman who bought it from the officer it was issued to in WW1 who was selling it due to his old age. I was told the officer, a Major Dennison from memory, only fired six shots through it. He went to France with it and kept it when he left the army. The policeman didn't use it much so the bore is like new. I would like to shoot it again but I don't like the idea of leaving it at a range. There isn't a Section 7/3 range near me anyway.

im not sure how it happened but i got seriously hooked on these and their enfield made cousins , ive accumulated a mkI , mkII , mkIII , mkIV , mkV , and mkVI in the weblets in 455 , and an enfield mk VI , then picked up the webley mkIV in 380 and a set of the enfields mkI ,I* ,I** , and lastly a nice albion , im looking for that illusive HAK [with little to no hope] , as stated we can and do keep these close and shoot them , ill keep the light on for any east siders visiting here who want to go shooting , these are very fine revolvers and quite interesting

ive now got the ability to add the photos -455s



\and the 380s

Here's my 1917 Mark VI that I picked up last year. No finish left and some pitting, but the bore is like new and it is still chambered in .455 unlike many here in the US. It shoots great and I really like this one -It IS my avatar :D
