Webley No.1 Angular Frame Revolver, .380CF

This is a very rare Webley No.1 Angular Frame revolver in .380CF made in the late 1860's. Webley's No.1 revolvers seem to come in two styles, angular frame like this example, and another style with a rounded grip. They appear to have only been made in smaller calibers - .320CF and .380CF

Angular frame Webley's are also found without the No.1 marking in different frame sizes depending on calibre. Most are marked with just the W&S flying bullet trademark. Very few have the No.1 marking.

This revolver was retailed in Australia by James W. Rosier of 66 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. There is a small proof mark on the right side of the frame that indicates it was made (or at least proofed) after mid July 1868.
