Webley-Fosbery Automatic Revolver

This is an update to out previous video on the Webley-Fosbery, which was taken on a low-res camera in a dark room – hopefully this will be a big improvement!

The Webley-Fosbery was an early automatic handgun based on a revolver design. The top half of the frame slides back under recoil, recocking the hammer and indexing to the next round in the cylinder. They were made commercially in both .38 and .455 calibers, with the .455 version attracting interest from British Army officers into World War I.
