So, there's a listing on Armslist on which I'm considering making an offer:
I have a thing for top-break revolvers, and a Webley has been on my list for quite some time. I have a few questions, though:
1) Was there ever a Webley made with a 2-inch barrel? I can only find mention of four- and six-inch barrels. The barrel having been shortened (which I suspect it has) isn't a dealbreaker, but I like to know going in.
2) The seller claims the nickel plating is the original finish, which I find odd for a military gun. I guess it could have been a presentation model or something, but still. How likely is it?
3) How expensive and hard to find is ammo for a Webley? I don't know yet if this is a .455 or .38/200 model.
