Re: Webley Mark I
OK, we’re going to put Jim K to the test!!
All this talk about early Webley’s got me to dig out a couple of pictures of two I owned a number of years ago. I’ve gone through Boothroyd’s book and just got myself even more confused with the MkI, Mk1*, MkI**, MkII, MkII*, MkII**, MkIII, MkIV, MkV and MkVI, (Apparently the Mks I,II &III came in two different barrel lengths, 4” & 6”.) The first one I had identified as a MkI** and the second as a MkII (Civilian).( It has the Winged Bullet W/S logo on the side of the frame.) I have to assume that I was going strictly on the frame for identification and now I just don’t know what they are. Both had been shaved and, for all I know are a compilation of parts that were thrown together to sell to us Yanks….
