Localization of production of XNUMXth century British revolvers at an Indian plant named a success of the Make in India program

India has announced a "great success of the program", which is called "Do in India". This program was once initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. What exactly is “great success”?


It is reported that at one of the factories in India the production of the British Webley & Scott self-loading revolvers is localized.

Sial Manufacturers CEO Surendra Pal Singh noted that the British company has decided to localize production at one of the Sial Manufacturers' factories.

Surendra Pal Singh:

It weapon will be presented by government representatives in February this year, after which it will begin to enter the Indian market.

At the same time, data on what are the needs of the Indian market for the British Webley & Scott revolvers is not announced.

For reference: the British firm Webley & Scott from Birmingham produced long-barreled pistols from 1834 to 1979. After that, she reoriented to the production of pneumatic weapons. However, in 2010, the production of revolvers and some other types of firearms was restored.

India decided some time ago that the Webley Revolver, developed back in 1887, would be suitable for the Indian market. These weapons have been used in a wide range of wars and armed conflicts, including both world wars, as well as conflicts in the XNUMXth century.

Some characteristics of the revolver: weight - about 1,1 kg, sighting range - up to 46 m, barrel length - 106 mm, calibers - 11,56 / 9,65 mm. Ammunition - a drum for six rounds.

          Version - maybe for some Indian VOKHR?
          At us on the crumbling defense industry, the aunt-VOKHRs went with "Nagans" until the end of the 90s. A neighbor together with her daughter (two aunts of 120 kg each!) Worked at one of the factories. Until they were replaced by private security companies.

        Plastic is not for tough Indians. Revolvers in gold, ivory lining. They have many elephants there.

    sighting range - up to 46 m

    ... and at 47 meters there is already dispersion, right? :) In general, anyone who has read at least 3-4 books by English-speaking authors knows what a "yard" is and will be able to translate it into meters.

    As it was a British colony, it remained. Well, slightly retouched ...
    And about the revolver ... well, they would have set up Fesbury - Vebley, an interesting automatic revolver, self-loading ... The athletes loved it very much. But no. Heir to the colonial era, as old as ... a mammoth.

      Here, rather than "self-loading", but "self-propelled" is meant. You do not need to manually cock the trigger after each shot.

    british self-loading revolvers Webley & Scott.
    Probably still more correct, as is customary among gunsmiths, a double-action revolver. India has decided to remember its colonial past, is nostalgia tortured? Well, what is it solely their business. All the more so if the slogan is “Do in India”.

    Administration of the site, you somehow control your newsmakers of minors, otherwise they publish utter stupidity and cause irreparable harm to the reputation of the site. After all, they will laugh on the net from a "self-loading revolver".
    In the original, the news looks like this.
    We will soon launch the classic W&S Mark IV revolver in .32 caliber in two variations. This will be followed later in the year by a .32 caliber pistol with polymer frame and steel slide. The pistol will have a 13-shot capacity. Next in line are a 12 bore pump-action shotgun, a .45 caliber pistol and air rifles, ”said Maninder Sial, the British company's Indian partner.

    Clowns. By the way, the pistol is really used extremely rarely, and therefore, plus the revolver - reliability - is completely clogged with a huge minus - inconvenience due to the drum in carrying. It is clear why the police use them to this day - that's what reliability is critical to them. But in the army a revolver is nonsense
