    Thankyou Lance for these very enjoyable posts.

    I have always loved the 455.
    I use to have a Mk VI Enfield made one, it was a minter not many rounds through it at all.
    Came from an old Ladys estate after she died it had been her husbands.
    I had a few friends in my area at the time who were shot gun dealars only, so when
    they got pistols in in a deal, they came my way at a very cheap price.. Being in the police at the time I got my FAC
    modified very quickly with no problem. When the ban came in I had over 30 pistols and space for over 50 on my FAC.
    So my heart was so badley broken when we lost them, it was not a good time for me as wife also devorced me that year.
    I had her deactivated ( the 455 not the wife) when we lost the pistols. I was so p***** off doing it.
    It was fantastic to shoot, so gentle, I reloaded with Herco powder, I used it in all my pistol rounds.
    I still have the M & S hollow base bullets and the Mk II cases I bought from M & S most are un fired,
    never know when I might want them.

    Sorry if I've missed it elsewhere, but what is the ball park US/Canadaicon value of a .455" Webley .22"sub calibre cylinder/barrel.

    I know that the only true price is the auction price on the day, but as we can't possess them anyway in the UKicon, the auction price is pretty well academic anyway

    Peter, I don't know about over there, but in the UKicon , Bob Holloway is advertising a .455 MkIV (4") with .22 insert and cylinder priced at £955 which you could probably get on a Heritage ticket. He also has a 6" MkVI at £745 , a bit problematic for Heritage but not impossible.

    Interested in the sectioned revolvers Lance........ We have a couple of Mk6's from the very old pre-war Ordnance Apprentices at Hilsea. I have to say that even though they are just Apprentices well used test pieces, the quality of the work of these apprentices examples is quite staggering. No other comments needed but might I ask where yours came from?

    When I was an Apprentice, we were told what to do to them and what needed to be seen (you just got to know really of course......) but the mechanics or operation of what and how you did it was left to the group as a discussion. It made sure that you REALLY knew the weapon intimately, inside and out because one cut too many or deep could mean that a spring would compress and fly out or a part (such as the cylinder pawl on yours) wasn't secure and would slide out - usually JUST as the instructor was marking it!

    THat meant that the pistol or rifle or whatever was scrap but you'd get another and start again! The favourites were usually .38" Enfields and Bren gun trigger mechanisms.......... Plenty of traps for the unwary to fall into with those!

    That's a very impressive display.

    Is there a MK I** in there?

    I saw one today at a local gun show, but couldn't decide what mark it was until I looked at Revolvers of the Britishicon Services.




    Thanks.
