Webley Kaufmann Improved Government Revolver W.G. second pattern
Webley Kaufmann Improved Government Revolver W.G. second pattern, nickel plated. Push button type cylinder retaining pin. Chevron style chequering pattern on grip plates.
This revolver incorporates M. Kaufmann's Patents 3313 0f 1881 (the compound barrel latch) and 4302 0f 1882 ( a simplified trigger action). Webley's first revolver machine made on the interchangeable principle. There appears to be no correlation between the Kaufmann number and the serial number on Kaufmann revolvers.
