British Webley MK IV Revolver 38/200- Display Non-Firing Pistol

Regular price $99.95

Item Description

New Made Item: This is a fantastic true to scale/weight replica of the official service pistol for the British military during the Second World War; the Webley Mk IV in .38/200. This non-functioning inert reproduction features an operational trigger, hammer, and rotating cylinder! Unfortunately due to design constraints, these are not able to "break open" like the originals. Metal construction except for the grips, which are plastic.

The Webley Revolver (also known as the Webley Break-Top Revolver or Webley Self-Extracting Revolver) was, in various marks, the standard issue service pistol for the armed forces of the United Kingdom, the British Empire, and the Commonwealth from 1887 until 1963.

The Webley is a top-break revolver with automatic extraction. That is, breaking the revolver open for reloading also operates the extractor. This removes the spent cartridges from the cylinder. In 1887, the British Army was searching for a revolver to replace the largely unsatisfactory Enfield Mk I & Mk II Revolvers, and Webley & Scott, who were already very well known makers of quality guns and had sold many pistols on a commercial basis to military officers and civilians alike, tendered the .455 calibre Webley Self-Extracting Revolver for trials. The military was suitably impressed with the revolver (it was seen as a vast improvement over the Enfield revolvers then in service, which lacked a practical extraction system), and it was adopted on 8 November 1887 as the "Pistol, Webley, Mk I". The Webley revolver went through a number of changes, culminating in the Mk VI, which was in production between 1915 and 1923. The large .455 Webley revolvers were retired in 1947, although the Webley Mk IV .38/200 remained in service until 1963 alongside the Enfield No. 2 Mk I revolver.

Will look fantastic in an original issue British WW2 holster, available from IMA, and can easily complete any WWII collection without the requirement of possessing a firearms license.

Original WWII Holsters (in photos) are available seperatley.
