    Link to a blog from a gent that publishes some good stories- Scroll WAY down the left side until you get to the article on the Enfield #2 snubby. THE NEW RIVER VALLEY OUTDOORSMAN

    Basically, a British Military revolver that has been shortened up.

    Well, the collector's value as a military arm sort went south when it was "sporterized". Value now is pretty much as a shooter. And top break .38 S&Ws (NOT .38 Special) snubbies are not real high on the list. As a connection to your family, and a neat bit of histoey- priceless. To put a mundane value in terms of dollars and cents- $50-$75.
