Made in 1941 by British Albion Motors Industries. All numbers match- cylinder, barrel, receiver. The bright bore has well defined rifling lands grooves. It locks up tight & timing is perfect. This is a double action .38S&W caliber revolver with 98% wartime original parkerized finish. It has slight pitting at tip of barrel which looks like it sat in a holster for too long. The original Bakelite grips have a slight crack on bottom of left panel, otherwise they are in great condition & not worn. The brass medal disc is in place with marks of "ECO" [at 12 o'clock] "1" [at 3] and "5 49" [at 6] which I have not been able to decipher. The top of barrel is marked "38" for the cal., "41" for the year, with the British acceptance "arrow" mark and crown over "G.R" over crossed flags over "P" for acceptance as military firearm. On the Left side of the receiver are various proof marks including "38" "757" "3 ½ TONS" and what appears to be a crown over "8 [or S] NP". On the left side of receiver Lanyard loop is intact.

There were two main variants of the Enfield No 2 Mk I revolver. The first was the Mk I*, which had a spurless hammer and was double action only, meaning that the hammer could not be thumb-cocked by the shooter for each shot. Additionally, in keeping with the revolver's purpose as a close-range weapon, the handgrips, now made of plastic, were redesigned to improve grip when used in rapid double-action fire; the new handgrip design was given the designation Mk II.
The Enfield No 2 is very fast to reload—as are all British top-break revolvers—because of its automatic ejector, which simultaneously removes all six cases from the cylinder.
British combat experience during World War II with the .38/200 Enfield revolvers during World War II seemed to confirm that, for the average soldier, the Enfield No. 2 Mk I could be used far more effectively than the bulkier and heavier .455 calibre Webley revolvers that had been issued during World War I.
