    Lancaster Pistols

    Some quick shots of two Lancaster pistols Both are caliber .476 CF, they could also handle .450 CF and early .455 Webley, double action only they are simple and robust, both feature automatic ejectors.







    Always looking for these, will pay $100 finder’s fee to anyone who provides information on a new Lancaster that leads to a successful purchase.

    Some better photos.


    Loaded and ready, inspires confidence, nothing to remember, nothing to forget, point and shoot.


    She is marked .476 but could fire .455 Webley


    Looking down the wrong end, still have some cleaning to do.


    Top to bottom, four barrel .476, two barrel .476 and two barrel .380 CF. The collection grows, more on route to me.

    Beauty and the Beast


    More Lancaster's “Beauty and the Beast” The small two barrel model in .380 CF perfect for a Gentleman’s waist coat pocket is dwarfed by the mighty .577 above her


    Not a Lancaster but I love these old girls

    Those are gorgeous old Lancasters. The Webley-Fosbury revolver is really something else ! Out of curiousity, how many Fosbury revolvers were produced ?

    tried inboxing you here, but it wouldnt let me..

    just in my search i came across this interesting piece as well.. http://www.gunsinternational.com/Fre...n_id=100291816

    here is a lancaster for sale but its been de-activated if your up for a little work - http://www.deactivated-guns.co.uk/de.../prod_134.html

    http://www.rockislandauction.com/vie...id/52/lid/3195 - really pricey but near new condition... youd REALLY have to want it at this price...

    http://www.angelfire.com/art/enchant...nturyguns.html a couple double barrels for sale...

    my only other suggestion for now is that perhaps asking in a forum that caters to the lancasters might help you since you find them more in europe than here, and someone over there might/could have a better lead... http://britishmilitariaforums.yuku.c...2#.UdBf7fm1Ha4

    ...either way, good luck...hope you find a good example
