The double action trigger pull is smooth, the single action is crisp. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.

Our Assessment: The Enfield No. 2 revolver was in service with the British Empire from the 1930s through the 1960s. Following the Great War, it was decided that a smaller, lighter sidearm should be produced and issued. The result was the No. 2, chambered for the .38/200 cartridge (essentially a .38 S&W), a single and double action revolver produced by RSAF Enfield. As the war progressed, there were changes to the design, designated * changes. This is a neat example of No2 MKI that has a Parker-Hale .22 conversion kit. The pistol is in about Very Good condition with 83% of its original finish remaining. Please see our photos and good luck!
