Webley-Fosbery
« on: November 20, 2023, 08:07:24 AM »
Gentlemen,  There's a Webley-Fosbery on Gunbroker for the low, low price of $17,500.  Someone want to buy it and let me shoot it?!

If that's too rich for you, there's a much cheaper one available on Gunbroker for $16,995. 

Let us know how it shoots and be sure to post pictures.

At bargain prices like that, maybe I should buy both!

I've actually fired one - it's very 'different'...

It reminded me of shooting a Longslide .45 back in the day - a long, slow recoil akin to un-coupling a railroad boxcar.

I might imagine the feel of the “high” bore axis, Though I've never had the pleasure of handling one.
 I would add it to my bucket list  :)

It certainly has a unique recoil impulse. I paid 9500.00 for mine 5 years ago. I’ll probably get it out this year for my Rorkes Drift impression i do at my cas clubs shoot in January. Haven’t shot it in a while.
