Toronto Police Marked Webley RIC No.1 Revolver (Published)

  • Maker: Webley
  • Model: RIC
  • Caliber: .442

  • Description: Serial #82159, .442 CF, 3 1/2 barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some traces of mild freckling within the grooves. This is a nice looking, transitional model revolver that has 85-90% of the original bright blue remaining, and the balance flaked to an even, plum-brown patina. The hammer, trigger, and ejector assembly have some minor freckling in the otherwise armory bright finish. The topstrap is marked: P. WEBLEY & SON / BIRMINGHAM; and the left side of the frame has the Webley Winged Bullet trademark. Additionally, a Toronto Police Force property mark is engraved on the left side of the frame: TPF; while a police inventory number is stamped on the right: 230. The checkered walnut grip is in very good shape with flattening of the points and a few minor handling marks in the oil finish. The lanyard swivel was removed. This very revolver is illustrated on page 94 of Webley Solid Frame Revolvers Models RIC, MP, and No. 5 by Black, Davis, and Michaud (2010). This is a very good example of a Canadian police-marked RIC revolver that has been published in a respected reference book. Antique
