    Webley Bentley Bentley Patent 60 Bore Revolver Revolver

    Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverUsed£ 875

    The Webley Bentley Wedge Frame percussion revolver is easily identified by its open frame with the barrel secured to the frame with a wedge key similar to Colt’s revolvers. Unlike Colt’s early revolvers however, Webley had already mastered, along with other British gunmakers such as Adams, the ability to interlink the trigger with the hammer and cylinder so you did not have to manually cock the hammer each time to rotate the cylinder. This double action or “automatic” method of firing gave the potential for extremely rapid fire and it would be some time before Colt caught up with this innovative and disruptive invention.

    This particular revolver was made in England and exhibits English proof marks. It is a six shot 60 bore revolver with a good mechanical action. Everything works as it should. The grips are Walnut with decent chequering and the revolver has been profusely engraved with floriate engraving that includes the butt plate and trigger guard.
    There is no retailers name on the revolver and the original finish has completely faded but nevertheless as the screws have not been messed with and there are no significant dents or dinks, it is a very pleasing revolver and would make a fine addition to any revolver collection.
    There is a very similar revolver exhibited as plate 27 of Taylerson, Anderson and Frith’s excellent book “The Revolver 1815-1865”
    The loading arm or rammer coupled with the flash shield on the top frame allow us to identify this revolver as being made around 1863.
