Are you buying , selling or inquiring on some ones behalf?
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.

I thought you were done with guns?

Mack,

I'm not sure about an A-frame, but have been quoted between 3 and 4 for B frames in excellent condition. My neighbor is selling his Webley (he is not sure if its an A or B and I haven't seen it) and expecting about 3.5...

Hope it helps,
Kandarp

Mack, taking 3.5 lakhs as the dealer price for a B series from a dealer,the A series would be about 50-60 thousand cheaper atleast.Then you have to take into account the dealers margin ( 25,000/- to silly)

There is no difference between the A and B series revolvers.They are exactly the same.

Thanks, Winnie.

If there is no difference between the A and B series why would the A-series be substantially cheaper?

The B series indicates a more recent manufacture.They are both Mark IV revolvers and this is indicated on the revolvers. The no series,A and B series Mark IV revolvers are basically the same revolver with difference being confined to how old they are.

Why the difference in price? Because it is a silly world out there.So while a longer barreled A series revolver goes for less than a shorter barreled one,a longer barreled B series revolver goes for more than a shorter barreled B series revolver.Why? Because there are fewer long barreled B series revolvers :roll:

BTW both the small and large grips are inter changeable.

What can be sillier than a safety on a revolver,yet people pay more for one which has it.I have even seen a safety lever installed in a DAO CZ .25 pistol.

Perhaps it is rightly so.See the number of idiots who pose with their finger on the trigger? The vast majority,when they hold a firearm, instinctively do this in India.Probably on account of the limited exposure to firearms and ignorance of firearms safety.

Sorry for the rant.

Mack. This is what dealers ask for. Webley A series 3 inchers cost around 2.75 lakh to 3.5 lakh and B series between 3.5 and 4 lakh give or take 10k depending on location of market and condition of weapon. However one in original bluing (extremely rare) still commands a good price, at least 15 k more than a similar reblued one.

I have even seen a safety lever installed in a DAO CZ .25 pistol.


Winnie there was a .25 CZ DAO in my family till last year. It did not have a safety. Can you please tell me which model you are referring to ? I am curious because as far as I know CZ made only DAO pistol in .25 in the last century. Its later model also did not have a safety.

Dear All, the market price for webley revolvers,all the time, depends upon few points i.e. "HOW ( 3 or 4 inch barrel ,original / reblued)" and "HOW OLD (this may include the series)" the weapon is ? Who is the Buyer- YOU or the ARMS DEALER ? and an important factor "The current Factory Price/waiting period" for IOF Revolver.
If you want to sell your webley, the dealer uses the words " In dinon demand bahut kam hai,/ IOF revolver ki waiting na ke barabar chal rahi hai,/ Rakh deejiye dekh lenge and will offer you something about 3 times the factory price of iof revolver.But on the other hand if you are the buyer The DEALERS will demand 4 to 5 times the factory price of new iof revolver. Besides this the prices are on higher side In DELHI and NCR.

TC,

It was an Indian mod to the pistol.
