    Webley MKIV 38/200 Israeli contract

    According to Webley records it was made in 1967. They made these till the last year of production in 1968. They were stamped with the Star of David and 4 ton proof mark. Chambered in 38/200. This is a 4" barrel. I have shot it and so has the wife. She likes it and keeps it on her night stand. It reminds her of Indiana Jones in the temple of doom.

    They're a bit wimpy, but nice enough. I enjoy shooting my MkVI much more.

    I load a 158swc hardcast at 700fps. And in the 455 New service and SW 2and model hand ejector 455 a 255 sec. at 750fps. Plenty accurate and powerfull.
