Webley Pryse
No4

Calibre .476
Serial No: 10447
Price: £995

Very Good Condition

This believed to be one of the 300 that the ZAR Boer goverement bought in 1896 from W. Rawbone of Cape Town.

The serial Number is correct for the range. By 1896 these were obsolete and no longer offered for sale by Webley or The Army &Navy Co-Operative Society.

It is thought the remaining stocks were dumped in South Africa with Rawbone who had 400 in stock at the time, they had sold 100 previously and had only 300 left
that were offered to the ZAR.

This pistol was brought back from South Africa 8 years ago
