Description

Thomas Bland & Sons are manufacturers and retailers of fine firearms in London, beginning in 1840, and they are still in business today. In 1875 the firm moved to London, where they maintained their shops and retail store at 106 Strand until 1886. They acquired 430 Strand in 1886 and until 1889 displayed both addresses on their arms. Since 1889 only the newer address is shown. This particular gun is a Webley RIC No.1, probably made by Webley under contract. Webley was quite accommodating if retailers requested their products "customized" to their own specifications. This model is in excellent, near-mint condition, with 100% original nickel plating, excellent, undamaged walnut grip without visible wear, and an excellent, tight action. The bore is excellent, with sharp rifling and very minor spots in the grooves. Marked "T. BLAND & SONS, 106 STRAND, LONDON" on top of the 4 1/4 inch barrel, "450" on the side, with Birmingham provisional and final proofs. The side of the frame is engraved "J.P. FLEW", probably the original owner. The case is in excellent condition, with minor wear to the interior, excellent hinges and lock, although the key is missing. The case contains what looks to be the original cleaning rod, an oiler, and two rounds of .450 ammunition. One of them has a firing pin mark on the primer. SN 2354, rated excellent overall.
