Revolvers

Webley .455 Mk IV / Mk V

In "The Double Clue" (S03E06) private detective Redfern (Michael Packer), hired by Poirot, uses a Webley revolver. The gun is seen only from the muzzle but some features allows to identify it as one of the series of .455 pre-Mk VI revolvers, most likely Mk IV or Mk V.
