Webley's first locked-breach semi-automatic pistol, less than 1,000 were produced in total, with less than 520 fitted with the automatic grip safety. Patridge blade front and windage adjustable notch rear sights with a series of Birmingham proofs on the barrel, slide and frame and the three-line address and caliber markings next to the Webley "winged bullet" logo on the left side of the slide. Below the stamped markings is the inscription "ROBINSON & Co SINGAPORE"; established in 1858 as Spicer & Robinson and renamed to Robinson & Company the following year, the firm was one of the largest physical and mail order retailers in Malaysia. The firm survived the Great Depression and the Japanese occupation of World War II, and transitioned to an online-only model in 2021. The pistol is equipped with a serrated slide release, a lanyard staple on the butt, nickel finished magazine with "bulls-eye" pattern release button and checkered grips.
Very fine, with 80% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish, showing a gray patina on the gripstraps, grip safety and high edges, scattered patches of mild pitting (most concentrated on the grip safety), and some light dings and scuffs. The grips are also very fine, with a few minor scratches. Mechanically excellent.
