Webley & Scott May Reproduce the Old Mark VI

WebleyVI
The Webley Mark VI .455 revolver, used by British officers from 1915 to 1963.

Back when I was in high school, you used to be able to buy great, big, enormous hand-filling Webley pistols by mail order from Stoeger and other vendors for peanuts. Today, they have become collectible and are getting to be expensive.

I just learned today that Webley & Scott, Gunmakers are offering to build a replica if 1000 enthusiasts will put down a deposit of $100. The rub is that Webley & Scott are not presently telling us what the final price is going to be. Rumors are that it will be roughly $800.

If you absolutely have to have one of these, Captain Carruthers, you can sign up here.

Personally, I think they should reproduce the extremely cool Webley-Fosbery Automatic Revolver, the same arm that the wicked Mary Astor used to shoot Miles Archer in The Maltese Falcon.

I had one in very good condition. Photos usually fail to suggest how big this revolver is. It is beautifully made too; noble and respectable I would say. I liked it. I have been once given the priviledge of examining a Fosbery in very good condition too, which seems still bigger and heavier. A very rare gun. And, yes, what an interresting piece of steam-punk machinery I’d love to own too; but certainly much harder and costly to reproduce!
