A .450 Webley RIC no 1 New Model fitted with Silver and Fletcher ejector and hammer safety, number 33***.
Condition: The pistol has had its frame and barrel polished, the cylinder has been refinished, but no evidence of any corrosion and the rest of it is very clean. The grips are in very good condition, as original. The pistol is contained within its blue baize lined oak makers case with Silvers label in the lid, the gun is marked Silvers & Fletchers Patent ‘The Expert’ and on the top of the frame SW Silver & Co Cornhill London. In addition in the case there is a very rare double cleaning rod with handle, which assembles and enables the user to clean cylinders at a time. The case appears to be walnut with insert brass corners and escutcheon, all of the finest quality.
This is a rare pistol indeed, only the second that we have ever seen.
