With over 1400 images and thorough text, this book provides new research on the Webley RIC, MP, and No.5 revolvers, revealing examples never before seen in print. Includes new information on Webleys purchased by police agencies prior to the RIC models. Covers Webley production from 1864 to 1938. Early Webley models used a wide variety of frames from different firms, giving the impression the company produced firearms in greater numbers than they did. A number of Webley's miscellaneous solid frames are also included, along with a discussion of military purchases of solid frame Webley revolvers, and displays of Webley loading tools, cartridges, cartridge boxes, the 1903 catalogue, and previously unknown calibre offerings. This book is an absolute must for all dedicated firearms collectors and dealers.
Joel Black writes about antique firearms from Madison, Wisconsin. Joseph L. Davis has collected Webleys for over 40 years from his home near St. Louis, Missouri. Roger G. Michaud has a huge Webley collection and lives in New England.
