Bought a Webley Mk VI frame from SARCO about thirty five years ago. Did not have all the parts until recently, needed a barrel and cylinder. Finally cobbled it together, still have to test it, but looks good so far even with the pits, yikes!

Nice, they're beefy looking handguns! Any issues fitting the barrel or cylinder? I've got a S&W 29 that I've sent in twice to have tightened up that I've got apart to set back the barrel and replace the cylinder and timing parts. The ratchets on the ejector were worn enough that they needed replaced and an oversized cylinder stop was still sloppy in the notches, so new cylinder and ejector rod. Need to thin & likely shorten the oversized hand and fit it as well as set back the barrel to close up the excessive barrel gap and hopefully get rid of some of the errosion. I've fitted the oversized stop to the new cylinder and the frame, so the next big step is making a jig (brownells sells one if I get lazy) so I can turn the barrel in the lathe.

Had to do some fitting of the trigger stop, pawl, barrel catch, barrel lever, auxiliary mainspring, extractor and shield. A pain since it was my first time working on a Webley revolver with just a bunch of separate parts, not from a parts kit.

Nice work, sounds pretty involved. 35 years has me beat on about all of my gun projects. At least with the N frames all the parts a fairly easy to find.

Thanks, it is getting harder to obtain some parts for them. I think the reason it was difficult was due to the frame being made in 1915 the first year of production. Also, it was from parts purchased separately not from a kit.

I assembled one a while ago that was dated 1917 and had a complete parts kit which made it easier.
