I am stumped. I will remain silent and be thought an idiot rather than comment and remove all doubt. Looks British but the proof marks don't jive. The Spanish seguro for "safe" is a mystery. P. Webley and Son is a real live marking for guns produced by Webley prior to the Webley and Scott merger. B. Webley and Son is obscure. Sometimes Belgian makers changed a letter or two in a popular name brand to make a sale, but this gun seems higher quality than the general run of those. I honestly do not know about this one.

The proof marks appear to be Spanish. That would jive with the 'seguro'. The Basque gunmaker's guilds were not above a minor name change to trip up an unwary buyer, same as the Belgians.
