History

Introduced to the British Army in 1915, Webley and Scott continued with manufacture of this popular heavy pistol even after the War Ministry had moved to lighter and more easily handled .38 caliber pistols during WWII.

The heavier hitting firepower of the .455 pistol round was much favored by officers and enlisted men who had access to the bigger Mk VI over the downsized .38 caliber Mk IV and .38 caliber Enfield No.2, which was a copy of the Webley Mk IV pistol.
