i started this whole whirl with a mix of US ant commonwealth items that i built into two seperate but related at points collections , as most here know i divested all my US longarms years ago and retained some handguns , but i reinvested into commonwealth items ,

so now this past year ive divested my enfield longarms , ive still got my webley no1s and webley/enfield no2s , i listed them here and on an enfield site but only sold a couple so far , im going to learn something new it seems , gunbroker - id rather they had gone to collectors but then some will i asume , just unknown collectors to me ,

ive missed this forum since it went all but dormant a number of years ago as well as those that used to post that moved on as well as those that passed on , looking back i started on skennertons site and have cycled through a few since he died , all fun but nothing ever quite meets the expectations of your first experience i guess , im sad and miss all that are gone but im thankful for everything ive learned from each i participated on and all of the great people ive met ,

not sure what happened to our moderator here but he is missed greatly , so many others that i enjoyed that have passed on , we have lost a vast amount of knowledge - but searching these archives can help anyone new here that might read this , i have no idea how many photos might still be available but they were also valuable for a vast number of common topics as well as some exotic one-offs ,

peace everyone

Rest assured my friend that some that you divested of have found an excellent new home and are well taken care of.

i do believe they all did so far , still got the older pre-WWII webley 445s to divest as well as the newer WWII vintage enfields webleys and a S&W pre-victory in 380 to divest , everything has its time and place ,

ive still got my WWII inglis pistols too but ive not even tried to part with them yet , im having difficulty letting those go , would like them to stay together in a way with the removeable stock , just cant wrap my head on that yet ,

Do you still have the Webley MkIV .455? What are you asking for it (them)?

EDIT: I should have read your other post first.
