Re: Webley No. 4

Man, a lot of good looking ol' British pistols in this thread. I'm relatively just getting started with these, compared to most here but, I keep looking and trying to learn? Again, Thanks for sharing.

I bid $400(it was with bayonet, sling and it good shape) Someone went a couple of hundred dollars over my bid? It did not state this in rules ...

Re: Another Mas 36

Please, give us a ball park figure on what you'd expect to pay for something like this? Plus, is ammo readily available?

Re: Origins of Obrea pistols?

I'll spring for steaks and some Crown Royal(more, my way of saying thanks). The cylinder and crane finally arrive and all but, dropped into the pistol. Will try and fit these as time alows. Right now covered up with things to finish.
Thanks again, Steve
