    Hi Rojo;

    I'm afraid that I'm responding to your posts yet again. You need to ask questions about Glocks or something about which I know little and care even less, instead of old stuff.

    I'm a big fan of Doyle's Sherlock Holmes tales. Read through them every year or two.

    The reference is about the cartridge that Dr. Watson's revolver accepts rather than the gun itself. The designation is unclear as retsup99's link suggests. Watson's gun would have likely been chambered for any of several British service cartridges of the later half of the 19th century.

    My Webley Mark IV .455 (left with lanyard) with 4-inch barrel and birdshead grips would be an example of a revolver kept by a medical man in the British Army of the times. This one was a private purchase, manufactured in 1899 and was sold through the Army & Navy Cooperative Society London and so marked on top of the barrel flat (Army& Navy C.S.L.). This firm sold weapons and kit to British officers.
