Being an 1883 MP (Metropolitan Police) model, it was built for the London police and would have been around during the time of Jack the Ripper. I've often wondered if it was carried by one of the detectives searching the alleys of White Chapel in 1888. Of course he was only a character of fiction, but I can envision Sherlock Holmes carrying one as he chases Professor Moriarty through the back streets of Victorian London or fires his Webley at the Hound of the Baskervilles.
If it could only talk, I wonder what tales my Webley would tell about it's travels from the banks of the Thames River to the hills of Texas ...
