Product Description

The Enfield No.2 was a British top-break revolver using the .38/200 round, manufactured from 1932 to 1957. It was the standard British/Commonwealth sidearm in the Second World War, alongside the Webley Mk IV and Smith & Wesson Victory Model revolvers, which are chambered in the same caliber.  The Mk I*, which had a spurless hammer, was double-action only. The Enfield No.2 Mk I was designed for use with the Cartridge S.A. Ball Revolver .380 inch Mk. I and Mk. Iz, a deviation of the .38 Smith & Wesson cartridge, also known as the .38/200. It had a 200 gr (13 g.) unjacketed round-nose, lead bullet of .359 inch diameter that developed a muzzle velocity of 620–650 ft/s (190–200 m/s).

This is a Enfield No 2 Mk I** revolver. Nicknamed the "Tanker Model,” because it was thought it would be safer for tank crews getting in and out of tanks (less likely to snag on something in the tank). It was made in early 1942, it has older wooden grips with a few dents and dings. Note, later ones were made of plastic. There are four notches filed into the grips, possibly kills or years - who knows. Both grips have the BO arrow stamp on the bottom. Still has it lanyard! Has post war proof marks ( .39.767" 3 1/2 TONS) and WWII (BNP w/Crown). Note the only import mark I can find is "ENGLAND" on the right side stamped below the cylinder. Serial numbers match except for a post war (rack, part, lot, or inventory?) number stamped on cylinder. There is an older one that matches,  see photos. I like the look of this WWII side arm and it has the "Indiana Jones" break top loading too. There is an ED logo stamped next to the I** and one on the side of the barrel. Top of the barrel has "42" and "CAL 38" stamped on it. 

Please look at all photos. She is a neat old veteran of the wars gun. The one box of ammo I have is an extra 49.99, but I can bundle the two for a special price... 

Please call or e-mail  if you have any questions, shipping and handling extra, C&R eligible. Thanks for looking.
