Enfield No.2 Mk1*

Post by Greenmachine »

Picked this up recently, I have it partially disassembled because it has extraction issues and the cylinder doesn't lock up tight with the trigger pulled. but my main question is the wooden grips are they authentic ? because all the wooden grips ive seen have some kind of checkering to them. they look well made but im thinking there aftermarket.

They look after market to me. Most of the Enfield Service Revolvers have Bakelite Grips

Look Aftermarket to me also. Mine have the black bakelite grips w/disc.

I had to replace the "hand" lever as my cylinder would slip

Also had to add shim to cylinder to prevent front to back slop. This was causing light primer strikes.

Here are a couple of sources for new repro's

Definitely aftermarket or homemade. Correct grips for a No. 2 Mk I* would be Bakelite composition with a stock disk.

I installed the new extractor cam assembly and now its pushing the extractor up high enough to remove the shell cases, but now the extractor wont drop back down into the cylinder it just stays extended. what am I missing here, what causes the cam to move out of the way so the extractor can return ? or does the cam need to be filled on to make it shorter so it doesn't push up as much ? any help would be appreciated

NOE Moulds makes the 200 grain bullet mould for this 38S&W pistol. They do have sales from time to time. Those things have a character all unto their own. The wood grips aren't that bad though, unless you knew before hand they all had bakelite. How much are those wood grips anyways?

Good luck in your efforts to get it running right. Mine was "loose" enough to bother me, and I eventually paid a smith to tune things up. If I recall, it cost more in gunsmith time than it originally cost to buy, but I was ok with that and am happy to have an Enfield in fine working condition. Here's mine:

You did the right thing in going to the gunsmith for a proper repair, especially since it sounded like it was concerning safety. I'm a machinist by trade and I have realized that some things are best left to a gunsmith and not a machinist as they are more involved than they seem. I wish mine had the dish in the grip, but at least I got one. Nice holster. I got one similar to that for my S&W Victory model that served in Australia. I like firing single action, so I got that to go with the Enfield as it doesn't quite have that option. 38S&W is a different bullet than 38spl by about .002".

Best Regards,

Mark
