Webley RIC No. 1, .450 Webley, Professionally Restored

The Webley RIC (Royal Irish Constabulary) pattern was introduced in 1868, and subsequently adopted by the Irish police as their standard side arm. The name RIC therefore refers to a pattern, and does not suggest that this particular gun was used by the Irish police.
This particular specimen is in excellent condition as restored. The high-gloss blue was crefully applied, and there is no evidence of pitting or scratching under the finish. The grip is excellent, without cracks or missing chips, and no visible wear. The action is crisp and tight, the cylinder indexes and locks as it should, and the bore shows strong rifling with very moderate bumps and spotting along the length. Sharp markings on top of the top strap "P WEBLEY & SON / BIRMINGHAM", Birmingham proof marks, "WEBLEY RIC NO. 1 .450CF" on the left side. There appears to be a very faint hairline crack on one of the chambers but barely visible. The gun looks brand new, as restored. SN 83226, rated Excellent as restored overall.
