I guess it should be noted that the absence of the extractor makes buying one of these a bit of a crap shoot with regard to installing an extractor. Extractors are usually a fitted part. Some will interchange, others won't Also, if you have a shaved Webley then the extractor almost certainly was thinned in the shaving process, meaning that it will not sit flush with the rear of the cylinder if you try to use an extractor from a shaved cylinder. It will usually still work, but the .455 rim will only be partially supported on the outer periphery of the rim.

When APEX sold these a few years ago they came with the extractor & springs. I bought one and received a .455 ENFIELD cylinder. It dropped into my 1915 Mk VI just fine though and worked perfectly. The fact that it came with a fitted extractor simplified the installation, though.

300 bucks plus shipping for a rusty part is no deal.

Well. try finding one in excellent condition, these pistols are from early 1900s Best of luck with this or most other parts for one. Remember these are mostly hand fitted not like S&Ws or Colts that the average man can change parts in or find a good pistol smith to work on them.
