Re: Enfield No2Mk1

It's not that your revolver isn't a nice example or that the post is uninteresting it's as you observed, there is not a dearth of collected written info about them. It's out there and the Enfields have their aficionados...just not as big a following as their snobby cousins the Webleys!! Sent from my...

No. 5 New Army

Had this out comparing it to one at a recent auction.
I've got a range day coming up and some custom ammo (.450cf) so I reckon we'll see some smoke soon.Image

Re: Vi

Any indication of date of mfg.? Pre-war, war-finish or post-war? Picture looks like a clean one, I'd say $450-$550 OTD price would be fair. For what its worth; I just bought a very clean post-war mkIV at an auction for around $420. Added plus, its marked SPF with safety intact. 728shooter, your est...

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

lewwallace, you are exactly right in your assessment of pricing. You can ask whatever you want for an item but the true value of it can only be determined by what someone else is willing to pay. And that may be entirely different for the next person... When I see the "estimated value" of a firearm ...

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

I, too, have the same pistol, marked R.A.F. on the side, 1938 mfg. with hammer spur intact. Beautiful condition throughout, lucky enough to find it in a pawn shop about 6-7 years ago. American Rifleman did a "...this old gun" feature on one like this a few years ago, said the value at the time was ...

Re: Mike Beliveau of Utube fame

Feachuring Webley .455 handguns, Webley appears to sport wood grips? Does anyone know of a grip manufacturer who makes Webley MK VI wood grips? Steve What models are you referring to. From 1887 when the British War Dept approved the Mk series of handguns most grips were hard rubber. Walnut was avai...

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

The " Tanker" model generally refers to the spurless hammer version which was designed so the hammer did not snag on clothing, equipment etc while in confined spaces. ie inside a tank. I don't believe that was its official designation but is given by collectors themselves to differentiate the two v...

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

Yes
But if you look at the period holsters the hammers were covered. Just a moot point.

Re: RAF MARKED ENFIELD NO2 revolver

I always see these refered to as "tanker models". Yes I know the were issued to the tank corps. But in this case its RAF marked, so would this be a "airplaner model"? The War Dept never, ever designated it as a "tanker"!!!
