ENGLISH OFFICERS .455 WWI REVOLVER  Guns > Pistols > Military Misc. Pistols Non-US
Description: A WWI revolver used by the English military, this .445 pistol is proofed on each cylinder chamber , the barrel and frame. When hostilities had begun England was ill prepared for the big war, and officers pistols purchased by the officer were in short supply. Across the ocean was Spain one of the oldest gun makers in the world. and revolvers were purchased and brought to England for proofing. This revolver is one of them with 5" barrel and a very shiny, clean, rifled bore. The exterior has no finish and is grey metal color, and has plain walnut grips, and a lanyard. Frame has English serial number 25.X in two places on the left side. Makers address is on the top of the barrel and can easily be read. Gun functions well, but line up is not always where it should be. The cylinder stop doesn't come up to hold the cylinder in place which means that the timing is off. This gun is much like the big frame S&W double action revolver . Works best on D.A. . Overall a clean wartime gun not easily encountered in this country! No sales to CA. Shipping may be higher than stated as shippers raise their prices twice year without notice! When buying a gun always have it examined by a competent gunsmith before shooting. To buy a gun from me you must get a direct email for me, with details, and shipping cost. We don’t have a web site .I prefer money orders or a check. Item ships when funds come in. If you can only pay with a card let me know. I’m sorry I don’t list my phone number, did that for 30 days, never again.. I can’t talk on the phone all day…who will ship the guns? I’m just one person, and it’s very busy here! I do a brisk volume! I hope you like my wide selection of unusual guns, knives and gun parts. Shipping price determined by zip code. I try to keep the prices affordable, which means I make less money than most dealers. You won’t get altitude sickness with my prices! I consistently have the best selection of older guns If you attempt to buy, you must still contact us for details . A phone call won’t always secure a sale! Sometimes a local person can stop buy and purchase before the gun is removed. Not home many times. I can get six buys in an hour for the same gun this happens when guns are sold very reasonable! Best to send another email . Sometimes not home to get calls. Some guns are required shipment to a gun dealer near you for a transfer to you when it arrives. With the widest selection of older guns at great prices, We don’t have a store, and sell on the internet only. Thank You.
