HS has really produced a great replica of the Webley but I see a few areas that could be improved upon.
His version consists of 3 parts:
- Frame/Stock Bracket
- Back Plate
- Chamber and Barrel
This is a great idea but due to a recent discovery it is not necessary to cast the Stock Bracket or the Right Grip.
Chris Thevas recent found a maker that sells very accurate replicas of these parts and it comes with a mahogany stock as well.
You can see pictures of Chris' find at:
Unfortunately the HS version is cast as one piece and he has said it will be labor intensive to remove the right grip and the stock bracket.
But I have asked David Meyer if he is interested in casting the Frame and the Back Plate for us.
It should not cost that much yet it will have one great advantage over a single piece unit, if you have the frame separate from the bracket and right grip you could always replace it with a real gun frame if you happened to find one.
It is also nice to have separate parts as it is more accurate and easier to weather.
Now Back to the replica Stock Assembly.
I have worked out a deal with Hassanand Hemandas & Co to place a bulk order of their Webley Stock/Bracket/Grip assembly.
If you would like to get one for $100 shipped in the US email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am just making a list for now.
Once I have enough to do a run I will ask everyone to confirm.
After everyone has confirmed I will accept payments. There will be no backing out at this point.
All PayPal and Customs Fees (if we get hit with it) will be additional.
