Description

In 1882 Webley introduced the RIC Model/82, the official designation of this revolver. Like the RIC back in 1867, the Model/82 did not receive its iconic name until a major purchase was made by a prominent customer - the London Metropolitan Police Force, in 1883. Webley devised a special mark, the cuffed hands and "MP" logo, to promote this model as something unique, and renamed it the "MP". Even though the vast majority of these were actually sold to the Metropolitan Police, many found their way into civilian hands, and apparently several hundred also found their way into the hands of Australia's New South Wales Police officers. The "MP" was only available as a six-shot, .450 caliber gun, and all, except a handful of special orders, had a 2 1/2 inch barrel. This specimen is from the New South Wales Police, bearing rack number 1901 (not the year of manufacture). It is in very fine condition, with 60% original blue on the barrel and frame, sharp markings matching numbers on the frame and cylinder, and an excellent, undamaged grip. The action is tight, lock-up is excellent and the bore is very good, bright and shiny, with sharp rifling and a few very minor spots. Marked "P WEBLEY & SON / LONDON & BIRMINGHAM" on the top strap, with the iconic "cuffed hands" logo and "N.S.W. POLICE", rack number 1901 on the left side of the frame. SN 94815, rated very fine overall. DISCLAIMER: All OLD GUNS CANADA guns are sold as antiques and we do not make any representation as to the shooting safety of any of them.
