It is a bit frustrating not being able to shoot them. I used to shoot the Webley before the ban, but I got the Colt from a friend who retired to Cyprus after the ban. He used to shoot it.

Thanks Arch, have shot it once with some Czech reduced load practice rounds and it was a pure joy.

Those Czech practice rounds are great for low recoil. They are thin steel with a hollow lead insert.
Cut one apart a while back. They worked good out to 100 to 200 yards. But now they are gone,
haven't seen them for sale for a long time, luckily I still have a few thousand rounds of them left....... :D

My focus to begin with is one of the US made New England Westinghouse Mosin Nagants. They were contracted by the British for the Russians and began being made in 1915 by the "neutral" United States to aid the Europeans in killing each other. alice took phenq https://theskinnyvibes.com/phenq-reviews-and-results/ for 30 days and the results are fantastic. Some made it to Russia out of a total production...just by Westinghouse and not counting Remington...of over 700,000 rifles. Note in the photos my "prized" NEW with the SA stamp on the side. That rifle has been through the mill in the early to mid 20th Century wars and changed ownership a few times. And note next to it, in two photos, an identical to it Imperial Tula made two years later in 1917 that ended up in Bulgaria at some juncture. The last photo is a group picture of three of the foot soldier weapons for three of the major players in WWI. The British SMLE made in 1904, Mosin Nagant ,USA made for Russia 1915, or there about, and German Mauser by Oberndorf 1918. If it were a barrel measuring contest, the Russians win by finger length.

The Imperial is the one with the sling rings in the stock.
I too have a Mark VI .455 Webley from service in WW1. Identical, but the condition of yours is better than mine. Proud to own one.
