I always wanted one after I read a series of books where the main character (a former sas trooper) uses one

Not the most elegant of wheel guns, but still very cool. Congrats!

Nice! Ever since I bought a Nagant pistol a few years back, I have wanted to start collecting some of the other "Ugly Ducklings" of handguns. Webleys are high on that list.

Good grief, where did you dig that thing up from?

Looks like it's been through a couple world wars.

It's held up pretty well so far, though, judging by the photos.

Got it on Gunbroker a while ago. It does look like it's been through both World Wars but the bore has mirror finish and excellent rifling.

They are also great shooters and ammo is still available for them.
