    So, was watching Top Shot, and they had the Webley Mk IV.

    I like the break action pistols, does anyone know if someone makes something similar to this one? I've seen different ones, but does anyone make a function replica of this one?

    The Uberti Scofield revolvers are similar guns, break tops. I want a pair of matching Russians in 45 LC

    I bought this one for $289 (including the blue RAF holster) at a pawn shop in Hillsboro within the past year.

    I was watching them on Gunbroker.com recently and they are selling in the $450 range. The hard part is finding .38 S&W ammo for them.

    I bought this one here on the forum a while back. I have a buddy lightly load some lead wadcutter rounds for the .45 ACP conversion this one had done. It will fire full power .45 ACP but it is not recommended as the original .455 caliber was not as powerful as .45 ACP. Even with regular .45 ACP loads, the recoil is very soft which is surprising because the Webley is not a heavy revolver. One thing about the Top Shot episode that I thought was funny is that the trigger pull is horrendous. I let a buddy shoot mine and at first he thought it was broken because the resistance is really stiff. Its a fun gun to shoot but loading and unloading the half or full moon clips are a pain and slows down plinking. I will probably get some .45 Auto Rim casings and have my buddy load those up next time around.

    I think you can make .38 S + W from .38 Special brass with a die and hacksaw but you had better verify that with a complete research/web search before you EVEN attempt it.. the Special may be thicker brass or something and require lower charges than standard 38 S & W loads

    No need for that. Grafs has brass Graf & Sons - STARLINE BRASS 38 S&W UNPRIMED PER 100 and Missouri Bullet Co. has bullets Missouri Bullet Company

    Depends on the cost and how much you want to shoot I guess. I'm also an improviser due to my being a prepper and naturally curious. If I come upon one of those as a capture/recovered weapon I would like to know how to get it shooting

    There are a few cases where the Webley got farmed out to other countries for manufacture (Spain comes to mind). If you shop around, some of these off models go a bit cheaper than others, so you can pick up a reasonable shooter with some patience.

    Starline has been a godsend for people like me who like oddball calibers. I just got a box of 41 long colt. Hard to believe. Also, some of the cowboy action brands like "Ultramax" make light loads in Starline brass for odd calibers. Spendy, but available. Surf Midway.com for it.
