An Unusual Victorian Bronze Signal Cannon, c.1860
Made in the Victorian era, this most unusual looking bronze signal cannon might very well be described in modern speak, as being, "Steampunk." It is certainly an extraordinary and well made item that features a robust carriage, with traction engine styled main wheels, together with a roller on its trailing end.

Bored through to the vent, this stout cannon is of about 54 bore and has an interesting and working elevator crank handle. The design operates a cam which raises and lowers the barrel - All very well made.

Having a lovely deep age patina, this cannon is certain to appeal to many tastes.

Barrel length = 6 inches
Overall length = 7 inches

Superb Webley Long Spur Second Model Revolver, c.1853
An excellent James Webley Patent, Second Model "Long Spur" percussion revolver made, c.1853. This 54 bore 5 shot revolver is marked on the side plate as being, "Webley's Patent" and was one of the company's high end revolvers, toted by them as being their first In-House design. Long Spurs were bespoke, hand crafted pistols of the highest order and needless to say, they were expensive. No doubt these factors contributed to the reason so few were made. This one is numbered 720.

Distinctive by virtue of its Long Spur, these revolvers actually handled and performed extremely well but Webley, with its more traditional manufacturing ideology and pricing structure, were never able to compete with the likes of Colt, despite having some select clientele.

Fully signed on the octagonal barrel by the retailer, "J. Loffley Brigg," this revolver retains sharp lines, which are generally untouched and interestingly, appears to have been originally made in the white. Certainly sheltered areas reveal the bright cut steel finish, as found in the production of some Webley's, whilst other exposed areas show only light surface discolouration, with just a small amount of pin prick pitting. Well defined foliate engraving on the frame and a grip strap marked, "By Her Majesty's Royal Letters Patent," add embellishment to the revolver, as do the perfect fine chequered walnut grips - making for a comfortable hold. A silky smooth working action and faultless lock up, together with a crisp let off, give testimony to the Webley gunmaker's art. An excellent rifled bore, chambers and untouched screw heads, make this an attractive example.

An important Webley rarely seen this good outside of a cased set.

Barrel Length = 7 Inches
Overall Length = 12 Inches

Webley Wedge Frame 80 Bore House Revolver, c.1860
This Birmingham proofed Wedge Frame revolver, made c.1860, is of Webley Bentley design. It is a robust and compact model of around 80 bore, made as a "House" revolver for home defence. It is an uncommon version with the top-strap, retailed by Walker of Newbury and is equipped with a hammer spur. The presence of the spur suggests that unlike other Bentleys, which were self cocking only, this one also benefitted from a single action facility. However, despite having a strong working action with good springs and cylinder indexing, the single action function now refuses to operate - Yet the revolver remains fully working in all other [double-action] respects.

In cosmetic regards, the revolver retains sharp profiles and strong traces of original factory blue finish, with clear engraved details, a good rifled bore, chambers and nipples - Only the nicely chequered grips show a little shrinkage.

Basically a decent archetypal British revolver for the collector, which no doubt could be improved with little effort.

Barrel length = 4 inches
Overall length = 9 inches

.41 Colt Single Action Army Revolver, c.1905
Selling on consignment: An excellent and totally original example of the Colt Single Action Army revolver, chambered for the obsolete .41 calibre. Retaining a good amount of the factory finish and with all serial numbers matching, this iconic Colt SAA revolver dates to 1905.

Mechanically the action is as crisp as you could hope to find, with perfect timing and tight lock up on all chambers. Clearly this Colt SAA revolver has seen some use, but has been well cared for resulting in it keeping a very good bore and chambers - No signs of abuse throughout.

Basically, a super example and scarce to find this good.

Barrel length = 5 inches
Overall length = 11 inches
