The Webley & Scott Invoice Ledger Pages

The Invoice Ledger Books date from 1901 to 1932 and record factory sales of all items the company dealt in day by day. Not all these books have survived, over the years some factory books have been lost or destroyed

 

The Sales Invoices

Sales Invoices – These invoices date from 1936 to 1981 and record factory sales of firearms and signal pistols both commercial & military and domestic & foreign

 

A fee of £28.00 including UK postage (other countries add £3.00 for postage) is charged for a page from an invoice ledger book or a copy of a Webley & Scott invoice. You will not be charged if nothing is found

 

Printout from Data Base

Much work has already been done coping information of sales, repairs and secondary sales onto a Data Base.

 

Firearms covered by this Data Base are:-

 

The Marks Series (I – VI & WS)

 

Very little is recorded pre-1900. Data mostly covers periods of the Great War and inter-war years; it includes WS Army & Target revolvers and Wilkinson sales. The Wilkinson Sword Gun Book for 1905-1921 is missing which means that it is not possible to discover the name of the person to whom Wilkinson Sword sold their revolvers. Enquiries for military contract service revolvers are not recommended, as information is very limited.

 

Kaufmann/WG

The records are particularly strong for these revolvers. Most sales or subsequent repairs are recorded including secondary sales by Army & Navy CSL

 

Fosbery

The records are particularly strong for these revolvers. Most sales or subsequent repairs are recorded including secondary sales by Army & Navy CSL

 

Work is continuing on the Automatics and Solid Frame types. It should be stressed, not all serial numbers are recorded. Over the years some factory day books have been lost or destroyed. The records on the Data Base reflect all surviving details from the archive

 

A Printout will typically show the purchaser’s name or the name on the invoice; date of invoice; type of invoice i.e. sale or repair; description of repair; details of firearm if mentioned on the invoice i.e. calibre/barrel length/ finish/ grips (WG only) and if the revolver was purchased by Army & Navy CSL, any subsequent sale to end user.

 

A fee of £18.00 including UK postage (other countries add £3.00 for postage) is charged for a printout from the Data Base. You will not be charged if nothing is found.
