    Thanks! It wasn't bobbed; the four-inch barrel is typical for a Mk IV (1899-1902) The later Mk V and Mk VI usually had a six-inch barrel. It has definitely been cut for .45 ACP on full moon clips. The serial numbers on the cylinder are cut in half.

    It's going to be a while. I do not have the dies, powder, bullets or brass to reload for it yet. I could just load some weak .45 ACP, but I really want to use Webley .455 bullets in Auto Rim.

    I've only seen pics of the Mk I; never ran across one at a show yet. The Mk VI is a great pistol ... strongest top-break revolver ever built.
