Item #40802

Engraved & Published Webley RIC Pre No. 1 Revolver by EM Reilly

  • Price: $3,495.00
  • Maker: Webley
  • Model: RIC
  • Caliber: .442

  • Description: Serial #7042, .442 CF, 2 3/8" barrel with a fine, bright bore that has a single small spot of pitting about halfway down. This is a very handsome revolver that has retained 90-95% of the original bright, commercial blue, with the balance flaked to a smooth, plum-brown patina. The topstrap is marked: "E.M REILLY & CO. / 515 OXFORD ST. LONDON"; and the Webley "Winged Bullet" trademark is present on the left side. The hammer and trigger still have the original armory bright finish, and the checkered walnut grip has a few minor handling marks, and some flattening of the points. The lock-up is tight, and the action functions flawlessly. This very revolver is described and illustrated on pg. 37 of "Webley Solid Frame Revolvers Models RIC, MP, and No. 5" by Black, Davis, and Michaud (2010). This is a fine example of a rare, Pre-RIC revolver, in excellent overall condition, and was also published in a respected reference. Antique
