Too right -ten years ago!
Another missed opportunity
I think I prefer a Wealth of Webleys and a Bounty of BSAs.
Seriously though, some of the really old/antique kit was certainly expensive and you'd have to be very sure before spending that sort of cash.
At my local gunshop this morning a seemingly nice man turned up with a large oily (of course ) shoebox.
" I have had these for over 40 years "
We waited breathless ( I told you I have had this cold ) and yes! an old Junior a Senior a Mark one, a Premier.
All intact but rusted to hell and not working!
What are they worth he asked.
Thats what gets to me about Webley pistols
Which has nothing to do with the pistols!
Were there any nice Giffard pistols on offer? /Eric

I don't mind what sexual, religious or political persuasion you are, just don't impose them on me!!
He didnt sell them but I sent him to another local gunshop who are more into old stuff.
They are going to restore them and sell them on with a payment to him.
The best was the Mark 1 in .177 and I await a restored price quote as I could be tempted.
Despite what I said above!
