| "Once produced in the now-obsolete and discontinued .455 Webley until the end of Era 6 and following a brief period of discontinuation, the Webley & Scott Mark VI came back into production, now made using modern materials and manufacturing methods. This new and improved Webley has moon clip cuts and .45 ACP chambers, competing with the Colt M1917; although if you ask me, the Webley is the cooler of the two. If you can stand using moon clips, the Mark VI will be a reliable sidekick that will help you survive anywhere, up to and including the dark heart of the Mazes."|

The Webley & Scott Mark VI (also called Webley & Scott Mark 6, Webley Mark VI, Webley Mark 6, Mark VI, Mark 6, or simply Webley) is a .45 ACP revolver.
This weapon can receive the following minor customization services:
- Super Webley
We've only JUST brought the Webley back so it can safely shoot .45 ACP, and now you want to make it unsafe again by loading magnum-power rounds in it. ... All right, it's your life, it's your money. Here's a .460 Rowland cylinder for your Webley.
- Caliber: Becomes .460 Rowland
- As a revolver chambered for a rimless caliber, a moon clip loaded with ammunition is required to fire this weapon: .460 Rowland/.45 ACP 6-round moon clip
Webley revolvers are originally chambered in .455 Webley, a proprietary .45-caliber rimmed cartridge. .455 Webley Mark VI ammunition was loaded with a 0.454", 265-grain bullet, developing 13,000 psi of maximum chamber pressure, 600 to 750 ft/s of muzzle velocity (180 to 231 m/s), and 212 to 337 ft-lbf of muzzle energy (287 to 457 Joule), depending on the quantity of propellant inside.
In real life, Webley Mark VI revolvers can be modified to accept moon clips, allowing them to shoot .45 ACP ammunition (nominal Pmax: 21,000 psi). However, because standard .45 ACP ammunition is more powerful than .455 Webley, and due to the age of Webley revolvers, it is strongly recommended not to shoot standard factory ammo. Enthusiasts typically use handloaded .45 ACP cartridges, loaded with weak powder charges and developing low velocity to preserve the revolver's life.
The author suggests that a brand-new Mark VI revolver, made using modern steels and materials, a purpose-built .45 ACP cylinder and chambers with moon clip cuts, and modern manufacturing methods would give the Mark VI enough strength to withstand standard .45 ACP ammunition, forming the reasoning behind the in-game chambering.
