Nice early post war Senior

A place to discuss all things Webley. As this is probably the most collected airgun maker we felt it deserved a section of its own.

Hi Hamish

Many thanks for posting the extra photos including the batch number on this pistol.

Although a bit misaligned and further apart the figures of the batch number on the front face of the spring guide flange do indeed seem to be smaller in size than usual and perhaps about the same size as on my early Mk 1 pistol, which would seem to be contemporary with your pistol.

It would be interesting if any other owners of Webley air pistols which they know to be early post-war (bill of sale or perhaps known period of original purchase, or early Senior barrel or pre-war warning on breech screw) could comment on the size of characters used for the batch number, and also the presence or lack of white paint infill for the lettering/numbers.

Thanks again, ATB Chris S.
