Webley Mark VI Revolver

This pistol is the "exception" mentioned in the introduction. As already indicated, Webley revolvers have never been primary issue Canadian sidearms. The Mk VI Webley was the final version (adopted in 1915) of a line of robust .455 revolvers which had been the official pistols of the British Army since 1887, and it was accordingly a popular choice for private purchase by Officers serving in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Webley revolvers were also issued to Other Ranks in Canadian Units serving under British Lines of Communication. (This example was the personal sidearm of Lieut. S. W Seago, who sailed in 1916 with the 125th Battalion, but was serving with the 116th Battalion when he was wounded on August 8, 1918, the first day of the Canadian breakout during the Amiens Offensive, which began what became known as "Canada's Hundred Days", leading up to the Armistice.)

Configuration: Double-action revolver; blued finish; cast black grips; 6" barrel; chambered for .455 British service cartridge; 6-round capacity; top-break for loading and extraction.
