    Second model hand ejector S W 455 and Colt New service 455Eley

    I have had these two Britishicon service revolvers in 455 for long time. WW 1 I think. The SW is English proofed and made in 1915. The Colt New Service is a private purchase 1914 in 455 . I think it was a officer purchase. I have shot both and they work fine.

    Its great that you have shot them! Amazing condition!!! I am the guy that buys them, babies them. Adorns them with all the accessories (holsters,mag pouches,pistol belts) and never shoots them. Then sells or trades them at a loss. I think I may have made the first step in acknowledging I have a problem! LOL . Very nice revolvers. Definitely a WW1 .455 fan.

    No problem they are really made well. I almost got a Britishicon Triple lock but it was on hold ,so I got the Second Model instead. Some about ww-1 guns. I have a 1915 DWM Imperial Lugar with brown holster . Good hunting and over the Top lads!!
