Webley-Fosbery Revolver

Ian McCollum takes a look at the Webley-Fosbery revolver:

They are neat guns, indeed. I've never seen a copy.

Between the development of smokeless ammunition and the maturation of semiautomatic handguns and automatic rifles, there was a lot of innovation that came at nearly blinding speed.

They are interesting. I met a guy at Tulsa a few years ago that had EVERY version of every Webley ever built. He was absolutely nuts over them, and could bore you with intimate details of each and every minor change... And he had a beautiful display. I left when he was 15 minutes into a dissertation on the minute differences between barrel length and muzzle velocity on a WWII model.
