Wanted one of these for a long time but sellers always thought they were made of gold or something. Saw this one about 3 years ago at a local show tagged at $100. Seller told me the action was frozen so he priced it as a fixer upper.

I took it home and poured some solvent through it and washed out all the congealed grease. After that it worked just fine. goodjob01

Bought dies and brass and loaded some 125 grain round nose lead .357 bullets to about 800 FPS. Even with the undersized bullets it shot surprisingly well putting all six into palm-sized cluster centered in the black at 15 yards.

Best hundred bucks I've spent in a long time.

I don't want to sound like an idiot, but is that a Webley?
A really interesting gun, one that I've always wanted to shoot.
Is it clumsy to handle?
How's the balance?
I have always thought one would be fun to shoot. Thanks For sharing. Frank
Enfield. DA only break-action British service revolver in 38 S&W.

The grips are not comfortable. The balance is OK. Great fun to shoot.
Enfield No. 1 Mark II*, if I recall correctly. I owned one of those in the early 70s. It's a fine, solid shooter. I wish I still had mine.
Now you need a full flap canvas holster and lanyard to go with it...
