British BullDog
« on: April 12, 2012, 05:51:39 PM »
I have A Nickel plated British BullDog that I need help with the caliber. A 38 special case will fit good in the cylinder except it almost protrudes out of the cylinder. It only lacks about 3/16'' sticking out. Is there such A thing as A 38 Webley caliber?? I have the same hand gun that is chambered in the 44 Webley caliber. Just need A little help if any one know or has info that might help me figure out what caliber this gun is. Thanks John

Michael my 44 Webley S# is 4316 on the 2 shells that I have is Rem UMC 44 Web, they are center fire. Any idea on it?? This other one that I am trying to find out some info on the S# is 31074. It also will be A center fire. I did not see any on the sights you posted that were center fire in the smaller caliber like 38.

In any of those google links was there a Webley owners group, or on wikipedia?  That would be the place to look.

Two possibilities if it is a centerfire: .38 Short Colt or .38 S&W, with the latter far more likely. .38S&W is known as .380 in British Empire countries.

There is some indications that a few Webleys were chambered in .38 Short Rimfire, but these are at best pretty scarce. However, a good number of cheap Webley copies can be found in an assortment of .38RF and 9mm RF chamberings.

Hey, RSMorgan!  That handle sounds familiar!
