      Hi Phil

      That's a modified Webley Mk1, The barrel release latch on top looks to have been repaired/modified and the steel buttplate is missing otherwise it looks fine!!

      Here's mine, They're quite small compared with the later Mk2 Service rifle! 👍

      There were only 1,500 made, Around the first 500 had the info done by acid etching, Webley found out quite sharpish that the etching wore away rather quickly so after around the 500th gun, They started stamping in the info!

       

      The barrel release latch on mine is just flat on the top!

      Hi Derv

      I'm not too sure, Never chrono'd mine but at a guess i'd say slightly less than 6ft lbs!

      Phill, Having looked at the pics again, It's in a very poor condition, The stock has been repaired with pine rather than walnut, I'm not sure what they did with the barrel latch and the whole lot would need polishing deeply to get rid of the pitting for reblueing, Also, I think the safety catch in non original ☹️

      I'd hazard a guess at £150, I saw two rough ones go for £600 but the stocks were in good condition and they would have both not taken much prepping for a reblue 👍

  10. Another load done and dusted pal, nice work keep it up
