    .455 Eley

    I recently came into the ownership of this beautiful colt. eley.jpgeley1.jpg I have done some research and found that it was issued to the British Royal Air Force during WWI. Does anyone have any other info they might be able to give me in this weapon? Value etc...

    Photos too small to tell much about it, but looks nickel plated. If so, that is a killer as to value.

    I can not get the tumbnails to enlarge.

    So, indeed, closer images, close ups of details, ones taken outside in indirect natural light, would be really good here.

    Slide Serrations look odd in these images, but it is maybe a pixelation issue.

    Let's have some better images please!

    Love the old .455 Gov't Models!

    Being plated, nowhere near close to what it would be if left alone.

    Is the barrel marked for .455?
