WEBLEY & SCOTT AG (LIMITED) REVOLVERS: SERVICE MODELS

Mark I-V .455 cal. service revolvers are all very similar, with bird's head grip frames and [usually] 4 in. barrels, differing primarily on the mechanism for cylinder removal, types of springs and steel used, and trigger guard and hammer configurations. The Mark VI, differed from the earlier marks by having a square grip frame and a 6 in. barrel, though Marks IV and V can often be found with the longer barrel. Shoulder stocks and Pritchard bayonets for Mark VI revolvers were never officially sanctioned accessories and, now, are often faked. Theoretically, shoulder stocks from the Webley 1.5" (No.1 Mk.I) signal pistol may have been fitted to the Mk. VI by armorers during World War I, but this procedure was somewhat complicated, requiring milling of the left grip frame. W.W. Greener produced approximately 200 Pritchard bayonets, for private purchase, to fit the Mk. VI revolver. These bayonets had either gunmetal or casehardened steel (very rare) hilts and engraved markings, markings on today's Pritchards are stamped.
