This is scarce Webley RIC No.2 revolver chambered in .450CF. The 6 shot revolver has a ramped 3 ¾" barrel, a smooth cylinder with rear ratchet stops, and raised rear lump top strap. These number two revolvers also commonly have quite a severely curved grip with an angled butt as is present on this example.
On the left side of the frame is marked WEBLEY'S R.I.C. No.2 .450CF under the serial number 11237, and above the W&S flying bullet trademark. The revolver is also engraved on the top strap with the retailers address G.H. Daw & Co., 57 Threadneedle St, London.
This exact revolver is pictured on page 160 of Webley Solid Frame Revolvers - Models RIC, MP & No.5.
