serial #185, .455 Webley, 6 1/2'' barrel with an excellent bore. This lovely revolver is nicely presented in a Westley Richards & Company Limited wood presentation case and remains in beautiful overall condition. The metal surfaces of this early 1914-made Triple Lock retain about 96-97% original blue with the backstrap starting to thin, high edge wear, scattered light very pinprick pits, light handling marks and a turn ring on the cylinder. The service trigger and hammer still retain bold case-hardened colors, freckling and light operational wear but the lanyard loop is mostly pewter. A handsome set of unmarked ivory grips adorn this beauty and rate excellent. This gun remains mechanically sound, all appropriate parts are correctly numbered to the gun and it bears British proof marks. The front sight has been altered into a semi-ramp configuration and the tooled metal remains in-the-white. The gun includes a walnut presentation case with a brass plaque on the cover engraved ''W.G. BLAKE'' with brass screws securing the edges to the cover and shows light warping. The inside is divided into six compartments and green felt lined. The inside of the cover is labeled with a piece of gold embossed black leather ''WESTLEY RICHARDS / & COMPANY / GUN and RIFLE MAKERS / GRANGE ROAD. BOURNBROOK. BIRMINGHAM / ENGLand''. Also included is an O.D. green lanyard, slotted steel cleaning rod, James Dixon and Son #202P marked silver plated oiler, 24-hole cartridge tray with 20 rounds of Dominion 455 Colt cartridges, key for the lock and a wad of tow.
