Hello old and new members! It has been a while for this old timer but the foundry days are back for me. Although I dont officially work at a foundry I do deal with one and I can still grind the metal with the best of them. I am currently in a run of bronze Indy fertility idols which are coming out great! One item I always had a good time with is metal Webleys.
Yup, for those that don't know, I made a very realistic non-firing Webley. It was made in sevral parts (handle/reciever, ejector/ u-channel thing, barrel and stock). They were nearly identical to weight to a real Webley and functioned as such (trigger was solid though).
I am inclined to start a run of these now that I have a foundry that does decent work at a fair speed. As of now I do not have any pictures of these but if any old members/ customers wish to chime in then that would be appreciated.
Times have changed and the metal/labor prices have increased. I no longer have a wood worker so a stock needs to still be sourced. With that being said I do have a better way of treating the metal for a richer "black".
Interest is being generated as of now for a run of say 10 or so. With the amount of finish work required on these the price will be $550 plus shipping to wherever you are. A non refundable deposit of $200 will be required to hold your place and get the project started. The rifles will be "functional" as far as the barel opening and locking in place.
time line for this project is not short but within this year. With enough interest I can cast waxes and have them to the foundry, back and finished in several months.
This is the CLOSEST I have seen to the real deal...period. Please ask questions on this thread or e-mail to
