Scarce Webley WS Target Revolver by A.G. Parker & Co. (Canadian Issued

  • Maker: Webley
  • Model: WS
  • Caliber: .455

  • Description: Serial #452663, .455 Webley, 7 1/2 inch barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a handsome, matching number revolver that retains 90-95% of the original blue finish with original brushed blue finish with silvering along the raised edges and projections, as well as a single area of finish loss around the "C (Broad Arrow)" stamp applied over the Birmingham commercial proofs on the left side of the barrel. The topstrap is marked "'WS' TARGET MODEL" on the left side, "WEBLEY & SCOTT LTD. BIRMINGHAM & LONDON" on the barrel rib, with the Webley & Scott "winged bullet" on the frame. The cylinder has crisp proof stamps, and the barrel assembly has the fairly rare lightening cuts below the barrel on both sides. The checkered Vulcanite grips are in about very good condition with numerous handling marks, surface blemishes, and some moderate flattening of the points. The lock-up is solid and tight and the action functions flawlessly. The butt has a further Canadian property stamp ahead of the swivel, with "A.G. PARKER / A.G. PARKER / BIRMINGHAM" stamped at the heel. This is a rare, Canadian military-issued WS Target revolver and would make a fantastic addition to any collection. FFL or C&R
