    I wouldn't have paid $600 for a chromed gun that no longer has the webley markings on it. Not worth the dchroming and it would suck painting it.

    the point of dechroming is so i wont have to put up with painting it if i did make it into a ee3 ide do what the film makers did & do my damndest to not harm it. ya the markings on the barrel were a downer but concidering i got this for only $600 the loss of the markings is a small price to pay. tough it doesnt really matter cause you never even see the markings on the gun the way its held

    true, but still incorrect. and if you are planning on getting rid of the chrome you should have waited a bit longer. the seller was looking to get more than $800 for it but didn't and he kept dropping the price every 2 weeks and still nobody bought it. could have saved a bit more and put it towards removing the chrome. but as long as your happy, that's all that matters. on a sidenote, if you really get rid of the chrome, i still expect the metal to be on the shiny side. cause they must have removed imperfections before chroming it, in other words before they chromed it they must have sanded it multiple times (one reason why the markings are gone, aside the fact that it is now a fed. laboratories gun).it also means that you still have to paint it, to give it that dark metal /black appearance.

    Having the plating removed should be relatively cheap and the gun can then be reblued back to its original state (before Fed labs got ahold and plated it )- no painting will be req'd.

    Dude, it's a good score--with or without the chrome. It may have last been modified by Fed. Lab., but it started its life as a Webley. How much would it cost to re-blue it? It would add a level of authenticity to it.

    Enjoy!
