Local pawn shop has a nice one dated 1915, how can you tell if the cylinder has been shaved to accept .45 acp. I understand that reduces the value significantly. They have it priced at $450.00, if the cylinder is shaved is 450 a fair price? thanks.

Here's my uncut 1926 .455 Webley Mk VI pattern (made by Enfield), for comparison.

I saw one of the acp conversions sell for over that. It had a birdshead grip. Not sure iv Mark VI.

Uncut Mk. VIs are $1000 guns now-a-days.

$450 for one that has had the cylinder cut for ACP is a good price.

A quick way to tell if it has been shaved is to look at the SN on the edge of the cylinder. If it has been shaved it will be on the extreme edge of the cyl or even partially ground off. On an unshaved gun the # is set back from the edge by a visible margin.
