Webley Model 1896 WG Army Model Revolver with Holster

  • Price: $2,795.00
  • Maker: Webley
  • Model: WG
  • Caliber: .455

  • Description: Serial #15060, .455/.476, 6" barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a great looking, all-matching number revolver that retains 75-80% of the original bright nickel finish with flaking and brown freckling along the cylinder, raised edges, and projections. Further freckling is also present on the sides of the frame towards the rear, as well as along the gripframe. The topstrap has standard Webley 'WG' ARMY MODEL marking with the Webley & Scott Winged Bullet on the lower left side of the frame, and no retailer marking on the barrel rib. The checkered Vulcanite, WG marked grips are in very good shape with two small repaired chips on the left panel (one at the top rear, and one at the toe). The checkering points are still fairly sharp without much flattening; the lock-up is still solid and tight, and the action functions flawlessly. The revolver comes with a period correct brown leather flap holster that is in fine condition with intact seams (although there is a single small sewn repair at the throat), some slight scuffing, and mild crazing along the flex points of the cover flap. This is a lovely example of a desirable WG Army Model that rates fine condition overall, and would be a great addition to any collection of fine British firearms. FFL or C&R
