As many of you know, owning a handgun is next to impossible in England. But what about making one? I can not think of a single currently made British handgun. There hasn’t been a wheel gun made in the country in over 30 years, but Anderson Wheeler is changing that.
The Webley Revolver can be described as the British version of the US 1911. Not in the function of course, but in the nostalgia, mystique and history. The English Army carried a version of the Webley for almost 100 years. It was the sidearm during the Boer Wars and the First and Second World Wars. It is iconic and one of the first guns that come to mind when talking about British arms.
Anderson Wheeler is bringing back the Webley and he is making it in England. British citizens might not be able to buy one, but us Yanks across the pond should have a chance soon.
But this is not just a reproduction of the old Webley. For example the caliber is no longer in the almost impossible to find .455 but in .357 Magnum. Changing to the smaller caliber opened up the space for a 7th round.
Production will be extremely limited to about 50 guns per year. Engraved versions and exotic grips will be the norm for these. Most will be handled on a custom order basis. The price point will land around 6,500 Pounds Sterling or about $10,000.
