Lambin & Theate "Western Bull Dog" .44 Webley Bulldog,
The Belgian firm of Lambin & Theate were in business from 1877 to 1894 making a variety of firearms, both handguns as well as long arms. They were well known for their many copies of famous designs - S&W, Enfield, and Webley.
This bulldog is a Webley copy, and it is called "WESTERN BULL DOG" as inscribed on the top strap. It is in excellent condition, with nice, crisp engraving on the frame, cylinder, barrel and trigger guard, and fine, aged ivory grips with a few stress fractures and a couple of small chips missing. The "L&T" logo on the right front of the frame is consistent with "Lambin & Theate". The action is crisp and tight, the cylinder indexes correctly and locks up as tight as can be expected of a gun with only one-sided cylinder stop notches. The bore of the 2 1/2 inch barrel is clean, without much pitting, and the rifling is pronounced. The nickel finish is about 90% intact. Pre-1878 Belgian proof marks, no serial number. Rated Excellent overall.
