If Marstar is selling them for repair, this ought to be good.

Hopefully you can make one good of the two... Let us know what they are like when they arrive and how the project plays out!

"Rusted, Pitted, Broken or missing Parts" $300 each, oddly shaped, paper weights. Kind of depends on how far gone they are though.

If anyone buys these and has one or both grips left over, I will buy them.

That’s what kept me away from it.
Use what parts I need, and end up with a couple pieces of scrap iron that I could go to jail for not storing correctly.

I would buy your scrap iron for a couple bucks and pay shipping if you want to get rid of it.

It could be my first restricted and help with the numbers.

I will take anyone's scrap iron actually

I had three of those things years ago, when I had bought them from Lever arms at $25.00 each. I was happy to have sold them; I can't believe that they are back on the market, at any price.

I get the historical value but as far as a shooter??? To each their own, but $300 is halfway to something worth owning.

My uncle had one before C-68 came into effect, he commented that the muzzle velocity was so low you could almost watch the bullet travelling towards the target....

I'd still love to have one for the history. My uncle's father undoubtably had one before he was issued an Inglis Browning later in the war. (He claimed to have the Browning by the time D-day came and was probably wearing it when the tank he was driving sank coming off the landing craft in the first wave). Plus I can't afford the Webley yet....

They don't have enough kick to set off tannerite.
(The Remington rounds at least. The Privi rounds seem to have more snap to them)

Sorry for the blurry cheap cellphone pictures. You can see the worst spot at the top of the grip where it has the broken chip. Im thinking its gonna be pretty nasty when I get the grips off. I tried the screw gently and decided some penetrating oil is in order.

Wow what a great deal. Is it possible to convert these guns to a bullet that's affordable?

I would keep one original and alter the other to shoot something cheaper

Would this deal be worth it, just to get my feet wet in repairing firearms? Just a thought I had from the get go of this thread.

I had a colt police positive in the same .cal. Factory ammo chrony'd at 580 fps...

That was my thought from the start. I've 'tinkered' with a lot of guns, already own the BA and whitworth tap and dies. I figured I could make one work and keep one as the donor gun. Now it looks like I have 2 to clean up and try out. Also, I don't care if its a slow round. I have many other obsolete old calibers in my collection..... Im punching paper with 'em, not defending my house..... that's what the 870 is for.... Curious, whats the speed of a .455 webley round?

I also found on you tube a video of someone who bought the same deal. One of theirs did not work, and was missing grips (for anyone who may think of ordering)

Couple of options; I homeload for mine. I use a .38/357 shell holder and 9mm dies. Use 9mm reloading data and start with 25-30% less powder and work your way up. Make sure that the bullets are well crimped as they will back out from recoil and jam the cylinder. Recoil can be noticable when approaching 9mm power levels, and at that point I find the trigger guard painfully hitting the knuckle of my middle finger; dial it back a bit.

Dial it back too much and you will be blowing unburnt powder out with the bullet. Heavy loads also are less accurate. I am using Hornady .38 Cowboy Action SWCs in mine, they measure 358-359 diameter. 360-361 would be ideal in these barrels; hard to find.

Second option: have the back of the cylinder faced off, get some 9mm 1/2 moon clips, and have some cheap shooting fun.

300. I paid that for my Enfield and Webly. Enfield has minor wear and Webly has most of its finish worn off. Other wise in excellent shape. Both shoot well. Enfield also has hammer spur.
