In the picture to your left, you can see the proofs I am speaking of (click on the picture to see up close).Apparently all guns sold in the UK had to be “proofed” by one of several proof houses.They were robust and powerful weapons, which gave excellent service until replaced by the handier Enfield No 2 revolver (see FIR 385) in 1932.This particular revolver was the property of 2nd Lieutenant J R R Tolkien - later to gain fame as the author of ' The Hobbit' and ' The Lord of the Rings' (in addition to enjoying a distinguished academic career). Retail value for a gun in the condition shown would range from 0 to 0 depending on mechanical and bore condition.

Firearms explicitly listed on the C&R list can be imported by definition, without consideration to the point system (you can thank FOPA for that), but only the Webley Mark I is explicitly listed on the C&R list.Many of us, when we think of Webley revolvers, think of this iconic movie image, of Michael Caine and Stanley Baker playing Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead and Lieutenant John Chard in the 1964 movie Zulu, firing away with their Webley Mark VI in .455 Webley.Unfortunately for the movie, the iconic image is wrong.The revolver in question wasn’t introduced until World War I, thirty six years after the British Army fought the Battle of Rorke’s Drift.Nonetheless, the movie helped introduce more than a few people to the Webley, including me.
