Enter now for the chance to win a Webley Mark VI Service Revolver, worth £248.99!
One of the finest handguns ever carried by British and Commonwealth forces was the Webley Service Revolver, which was in use from 1887 to 1963. Webley produces several airguns based on this famous pistol, and has sensibly focused on the most well-known variant, the Mark VI.
Webley’s Mark VI handguns come in either BB-firing or pellet-firing format, and the one on offer here shoots .177 pellets and has a rifled barrel. These guns are available in different finishes too.
There’s a Black Finish, for that straight out of the factory look, and a Battlefield Finish, with a worn and distressed appearance to simulate heavy use in the field. Then there’s the Exhibition Finish, this competition prize, which is nickel-plated and looks like polished steel. The overall metal finish is complemented by a black hammer, trigger and barrel catch.
Fit and finish are excellent, and this gun is a great facsimile of the original. Webley is rightfully proud of the fact that this gun has been based on the original blueprints, and functions much the same as the First World War example as well. The markings are similarly authentic, including the stamps for the now-obsolete .455 calibre and the 1915 patent.
Just like the original, this is a top-break revolver. Activating the barrel catch, which doubles up as the fixed rear sight, breaks the barrel and cylinder, letting them both swing down while simultaneously operating the extractor, which ejects the six ‘spent’ cartridge cases into which you load your pellets.
