Recently I bought what was advertised as an un-altered .455 Webley MK VI revolver. As you may know, most Webley MK VI revolvers in the U.S.A. have had the backs of their cylinders shaved so they can fire .45 ACP rounds mounted in moon clips.

As it turned out my supposedly unaltered Webley had been shaved. But I was still able to shoot proper .455 Webley cartridges in it, and I'll show you how I did it.

I am more impressed by the work you did with the dremel tool than I was with anything else. I have a passing historical interest in the .455 with some pictures that I saw about manstopper loads with bullets that IIRC were supposed to tumble in flesh.

Oh man .455 Webley's are sooo cool. Thinking about buying a chopped cylinder one for Christmas. I'll just run .45 auto rim in it. Great video!
