I know nothing about these, so that said, stupid question time. What is the thing under and to the right of the diamond on the grip? Is it a defect or something that is supposed to be there?

I'm looking at this on my phone so I can't see it very well, even when I try to zoom in.

VERY, VERY NICE. I would suspect the mark on the grip is damage as I've not seen any Webley grips with that mark before. Noe the important question, how does it shoot?

Appears to be a 6. A racking number or some other sort of id'ing mark. Doesn't appear to be damage, too intentional looking.

Indy 1919a4, Mid. and Enfield Shooter, I haven't had the opportunity to shoot yet but I do have custom ammo using 44spl cases and soft lead/hollow base, bullets that I feed my other 442s. Get it from Colorado Custom Cartridge.

May I be very nosy and ask how much they charge for a box... I am not a reloader and it would be nice to have a place to get such ammo if the need arises..

Initial 50 rnd box, cheaper as you have them reload the brass, $105. You gotta want to shoot badly! Never seen it any where else![
