I'd love to see pictures of these, it's very facinating.

The Volcanic was made and sold by Smith & Wesson, was the favorite sidearm of Oliver Winchester. It was developed from the Hunt repeater designed by Walter Hunt, inventor of the safety pin. It was this on which B. Tyler Henry based his design.

But it was a repeating pistol, not a revolver.

The Webley you picture does not appear to be a Webley-Fosberry. The Webley Fosberry was recoil operated, your photo does not appear to have the recoilling barrel and zig-zag cylinder. Please elucidate.

If that's tryuly a Webley/Fosberry, the barrel, cylinder assembly will slide rearward on the fram, rotating the cylinder and cocking the hammer.

Bob- you are correct- lever action (sorta) pistol, not revolver. And the earlier post indicated the owner knew this was not a W-F.

And FWIW, one of the weirder revolvers I can recall had an upper and lower barrel, and an inner and outer row of cartridges in the cylinder. BIG cylinder, but a lot of ammo.

These were made up in the latter 'sixties by a custom gunsmith, whose name I don't recall, using N-Framed S & W revolvers. They were dual caliber, .357 and .22 R.F., and had a flip up firing pin.

The Smith's may have been a resurrection of an older idea- have seen these from the late 1800's. 2 hammers, side by side- one fired upper row, one lower row. Did not catch on due to problems in keeping something like that in time!

yeah i know this is the weird gun i own
it's a webley mk4 made under the singapore police force contract
it was the only handgun webley ever made with a safety
thats what makes it weird
a push button safety on a revolver

i do want a fosberry but doubt ill ever have the money to justify getting one
