I'm thinkin maybe Webley DID make some of
I'll add more pics to photobucket so u can see for yourself there's no Tranter or Braendlin engravings anywhere
That make it more rare or more valuable?
The book states Tranter also licensed Tipping & Lawden and Webley to use his .577 design, and seven guns are shown: Two each by Tranter, Braendelin, and Tipping & Lawden; one by Webley.
The Tranters are marked Tranter's Patent on left front frame and the Webley is marked Webley's Patent in same location.
Only one of the Braendelins is marked with their crossed pennants trademark.
The Tipping & Lawdens have lever cylinder pin releases instead of a push button.
The Webley is made without a lanyard ring, and bottom of the butt is slanted upward at front like early Webley No. 2 RICs, instead of being parallel with the barrel.
You should check used sources for a copy of the book; it would be a valuable accessory.
Value wise, I doubt the maker is very significant, with condition being the important factor.
