Being a Webley collector and shooter for 30 years I have been frustrated with the barbarians who cut or milled the cylinders to shoot .45 acp. Being a gunsmith I finally decided to do something about it. I contracted with an aerospace machine shop for precision laser cut 2-piece plate sets. I sweat solder these to the extractor and cylinder, returning these to their original length. Both are then dressed down to match the original profile. The outer edge of the cylinder plate is then dressed and burnished to minimize the appearance of the seam.

We have had excellent results.

Cost for this is $150.

We can also refinish to civilian blue or military finish.

We also make reproduction lanyard rings.

If there is enough interest we may start making lanyard studs.

Feel free to contact me with any questions: oren@truittandson.com

I have you on my list, it's slowly working it's way to the top. I picked up this MkII and I want to make up some black powder loads for it.
