    Did you find out why 1 of your cases is bigger? I always assumed they would be the same size

    One is not bigger, two are smaller


    I must get them out and study them. Maybe some Webley pistol expert can throw some light on it?

    The Youngs Valvespout cans contained 303 rifle bore cleaner and rust preventative, not lubricating oil, but as they are refillable the contents could be changed. It's a pity Webley didn't use a similar can.
    There are three different types of the canvas and leather pistol case, and at lease two of the post war Rexine case. I've had all the variations in my collection at various times, but unfortunately did not take any detailed photographs before I sold them.

    That's really interesting. Did they all come from the same source?

    Mine has the Webley oil.

    It does indeed. Everything shown in the photo is what came with it when I was fortunate enough supply the winning (and surprisingly reasonable) bid at a Wallis & Wallis auction back in the early '90s.

    Much better and makes all the difference to the presentation of your lovely Slant Grip Webley Senior.

    Well done.

    Brian
