Kyber Pass Webley

I'd appreciate it if someone would convert these pics over from attachments so that they show up. I will post the details in a bit.

Heres the blurb

"LOOKS GREAT DOESN'T IT? Some craftsman spent a lot of time on this one, and it is the finest we have ever seen, if not the finest ever offered! It's a Khyber Pass (Afghan/Pakistan) "Webley Mark IV" in ".32" and we have been fooling gunlovers with it for the past few weeks...look at it closely...the cylinder notches are badly cut, the proofs are sort of blurry and placed wrong, the Webley Bullet is backwards and there is gibberish written on the top strap. Serial number is under the grips instead of on the front strap. Extractor works perfectly. Beleive it or not, the lock up is tight and the timing appears good..."

That is an exceptional Khyber Pass gun and very well made and kept.

Here is a more typical example, in .38 caliber (.380 or .38 S&W). Yes, I have fired it and it works, crude as it looks.

I almost tend to think they use some original parts.....

Funny, my Nagants all look like Khyber pass guns

The "gibberish" on the topstrap looks like their attempt to write "Birmingham&London".

I wonder if we could get them to start making affordable broom handle mousers for us?
