    Webley-Scott .455 1913 Navy Model Automatic Pistol

    Here for your viewing pleasure is my Webley-Scott .455 Model 1913 Mk 1 Navy automatic pistol serial number 1913. The numerous military acceptance, proof and property marks indicate it was placed into service in 1914.

    I found the s/n 795 in a most unusual place. on the frame bottom ahead of the trigger guard. Is yours the same? The proofs are numbered 13. I apologize foe highjacking thread but this is the only time I have found another pistol to discuss. Gary.......

    Hi Arado; I've posted two close-ups of the acceptance marks right behind the grip and on the breach blick. You can see the 14 just above the Crown/GR.

    Webley-Scott 1913 pistol

    Here are some more close-ups to include January 30, 1919-dated 7-pack of .455 Webley ammo, the serial number and the broad arrow property mark on the grip.

    Thanks, I have what you have except the broad arrow on the grip panel. Mine is on the hammer. I don't have the ammo, I'm jealous...can't find any.... made my own just to shoot it once. It is a hand cannon. Gary....

    Thanks both of you for posting that scarce, seldom seen old pistol. Have you ever shot them, either of you? If so how do they feel?
    Regards, Jim

    As stated in my post I fired it using ammo I made. It felt like shooting a 44 Magnum with a "8 barrel. I fired one clip and it cycled and hit the target.That was years ago. I never found factory ammo. When I buy a gun I shoot it. I bought one today.. A Polish Radom P-83. Gary.

    Somehow I missed that part Gary. I'd love to try one...well maybe. I don't really like to shoot guns that are "punishing" to shoot, much like the .44 with Winchester white box. I load mine down to make them pleasant. I'd do the same as you except I'd load them down if they would work. Then just hope I didn't break the old bugger...like I did my '73 Winchester Carbine...
    Regards, Jim

    I just got 50 rounds of reloaded .455 Webely ammo made from .45 colt brass and .455 bullets, dies and brass from Buffalo Arms which I'll reload. I got them to shoot in my two WWI Britishicon contract Colt Gov't Model pistols but may try them in the Webley-Scott.
