**SOLD**SOLD**21/1**C1970’s Webley–Fosbery Pattern .455 Calibre Self-Cocking Automatic Revolver.**UK / EU DEACTIVATION CERTIFICATED** Sn 17099:2 - 17099:2
The Webley–Fosbery Self-Cocking Automatic Revolver is an unusual, recoil-operated, automatic revolver designed by Lieutenant Colonel George Vincent Fosbery, VC and produced by the Webley & Scott company from 1901 to 1924. The revolver is easily recognisable by the zig-zag grooves on the cylinder. Semi-automatic pistols were just beginning to appear when Colonel Fosbery (1832–1907) devised a revolver that cocked the hammer and rotated the cylinder by sliding the action, cylinder and barrel assembly back on the frame. The prototype was a modified Colt Single Action Army revolver. Fosbery patented his invention 16 August 1895 and further improvements were patented in June and October 1896. Fosbery took his design to P. Webley & Son of Birmingham. P. Webley & Son, which merged with W.C. Scott & Sons and Richard Ellis & Son in 1897 to form the Webley & Scott Revolver and Arms Co., was the primary manufacturer of service pistols for the British Army as well as producing firearms for civilian use. Webley further developed the design and the Webley–Fosbery Automatic Revolver was introduced at the matches at Bisley of July 1900.The revolver was initially made in .455 calibre for the British service cartridge, and later in .38 ACP. In civilian use, the Webley–Fosbery was popular with target-shooters. Because the trigger mechanism did not rotate the cylinder, shots were smooth and consistent, permitting rapid and accurate shooting. Though Webley viewed this weapon as an ideal sidearm for cavalry troops, the Webley–Fosbery was never adopted as an official Government sidearm. Webley–Fosbery revolvers saw action in the Boer Wars as well as World War I, where some privately purchased examples were carried by British officers in the .455 service chambering. Production ceased in 1924 but exact copies of this pattern of pistol continued to be manufactured in foreign countries such as Pakistan into the 1970’s. This Webley- Fosbery pattern revolver is one of those quality, foreign made, full size, live firing pistols deactivated to UK/EU specification in 2018. The pistol cocks and dry fires in single action and when the cylinder frame is manually pulled back the cylinder rotates and the hammer automatically cocks. The cylinders and barrel are blocked. It has a 6” barrel and measures 10” overall. The pistol has the distinctive Webley-Fosbery form ‘zig-zag’ grooved cylinder and safety catch feature. The pistol’s blue finish is excellent and its grips are undamaged. The pistol is number ‘F4567’. The butt is fitted with military lanyard ring. The price includes UK delivery and UK/EU deactivation certificate. Sn 17099:2
