Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Webley No. 4

An 1891 Webley No4 that was part of a trade agreement w/Siam. Beautifully preserved and a real fun handful to shoot!

Very nice pistol. I shoot a Number 5 and with my handloads it is a real tack-driver. It is my favorite revolver.

Rapidrob; When you say Number 5 do you refer to the Webley No5 solid frame in 360cf or the Mk V military breaktop in 455?

Here is my pistol, 1915. The bore is bright and shiny. It loves my 250 grain round nose cast 250 grain bullets over 4.5 grains of Unique. Shoots to aiming spot.
I have won several matches with this pistol and have fire a few thousand rounds out of it. It is my G0-To pistol in .45.

All of my target photo's posted here over the years are long gone due to the many crashes.
I'll try to make it to the range this Wednesday and shoot a few rounds at 25 yards. Even with .452 bullets the pistol shoots well. I do shoot .455 powder coated bullets from time to time.

Man, a lot of good looking ol' British pistols in this thread. I'm relatively just getting started with these, compared to most here but, I keep looking and trying to learn? Again, Thanks for sharing.
