Description
The Webley-Fosbery revolver built based on designs by Lt. Col. G. V. Fosbery are among the rarest and most interesting of all revolvers and are some of the few "automatic" revolver designs. Less than 5,000 of the revolvers split across multiple variations were manufactured from 1901-1924. This is a Model 1902 variant. Like all Fosberys, it utilizes a novel "automatic" mechanism. It is a true revolver with cartridges held in a rotating six shot cylinder, but the cylinder is turned by recoil: the top section of the revolver shifts backwards, cocks the hammer, and prepares the next chamber utilizing a spur in the top strap and zig-zag grooves on the cylinder. This mechanism allows for faster firing while maintaining the low trigger pull of a single action revolver. The Fosbery design was reported to have been as fast if not faster than its magazine fed semi-automatic counterparts and as fast to load if a speed loader was used and is known to have been purchased by British military officers and to have been used during both world wars. It has a solid rib and a blade front sight, and the rear sight is integral to the top strap latch. The top of the barrel is marked "Charles Lancaster, London". The top strap is marked "A.H.L.M." with "R.E." directly below it "WEBLEY·FOSBERY" on the left. The left side of the frame is marked with the "winged bullet/W&S" trademark followed by "455 CORDITE", with "SAFE" in raised letters on the left grip panel. The right side has the serial number - 2003. The serial number is stamped on some of the components including the rear face of the cylinder (partial). Fitted with a lanyard ring. Includes unmarked leather belt and holster rig. This a great opportunity to add a rare and unique revolver to your collection
