The Webley Revolver (also known as the Webley Break-Top Revolver or Webley Self-Extracting Revolver) was, in various marks,

the standard issue service pistol for the armed forces of the United Kingdom, the British Empire, and the Commonwealth from

1887 until 1963.

The Webley is a top-break revolver with automatic extraction; breaking the revolver open for reloading also operates the

extractor, removing the spent cartridges from the cylinder.
The Webley Mk I service revolver was adopted in 1887, but it was a later version, the Mk IV, which rose to prominence during

the Boer War of 1899–1902.
The Mk VI, introduced in 1915 during World War I, is perhaps the best-known model.

The standard-issue Webley revolver at the outbreak of World War I was the Webley Mk V (adopted 9 December 1913[5]), but there

were considerably more Mk IV revolvers in service in 1914, as the initial order for 20,000 Mk V revolvers had not been

completed when hostilities began.
On 24 May 1915, the Webley Mk VI was adopted as the standard sidearm for British and Commonwealth troops and remained so for

the duration of World War I, being issued to officers, airmen, naval crews, boarding parties, trench raiders, machine-gun

teams, and tank crews.
The Mk VI proved to be a very reliable and hardy weapon, well suited to the mud and adverse conditions of trench warfare, and

several accessories were developed for the Mk VI, including a bayonet (made from a converted French Pritchard bayonet), a

speedloader device ("Prideaux Device"), and a stock allowing for the revolver to be converted into a carbine.
