    Forgive me if this has been posted here before, but:

    WWW.GUNBROKER.COM/auction...em=2774668

    This is for your standard Webley Mk. IV .38 revolver, 5" barrel, matching, no import marks. Current bid is in excess of $1000!!!!

    I got one of these in identical condition, down to the no import marks, no safety mod, and matching numbers. What do you think - can I get a grand out of mine?

    Wanna bet the high bidder reneges?

    Looks to me like a standard wartime-contract Webley Mark IV. There ARE collectible Webleys that bring well over $1000, but I wouldnt think that's one of them.

    How come this never happens to me?

    I've got a Webley Mk. VI (.455)....except it's not a Webley, it's an Enfield. Gee, maybe I can retire....wait a minute, I AM retired!

    BTW, Doc.....do you know of any way I can determine the date of manufacture from the serial # on this big lump of iron?

    Not that I'm cynical, but sometimes I wonder if there is some "ghost" bidding going on?

    X, I believe so - or close anyway. Need all the markings on the pistol, though.
