7/13/21- This is a very rare Webley Mark I revolver that was made as a factory cutaway for the British military for World War I. Interestingly, most cutaway examples render the gun inoperable but this example left the gun fully functional. It's also all matching numbers throughout, including frame, barrel, cylinder, internals, etc. Excellent bluing remains with only minor handling wear on grip frame. Smooth mechanics and a shiny bore, though it does have some minor pits. No import marks. Cylinder has not been shaved, so it's still .455. A very rare piece likely developed for the military for instructional/training purposes.
