    I have an old British MKI .38 Revolver by Enfield and was just curious if anyone knew about these? From what I have found on the web (which isn't a lot) they were used by the tank crews. Every part of this pistol is there even the brass plug in the grip. I am by no means a collector and hate to see this one just sitting there. Who knows,,if I can't find any info maybe I will just trade it for a lever action .22. Now if you know any information on this pistol please pass it along and it will be greatly appreciated.

    Mine has a shorter barrel, but looks exactly like that one.

    These with the spurless hammer were used by tank crews and paratroopers. If you like history I'd keep it even thought. 38S&W is a bit hard to find. I just got 250 rounds of Serbian PPU ammo for it online and will be taking it to the range this weekend.

    I just don't want it to sit in my safe and not get the appreciation it deserves from the collectors. That would be like having a 49' Merc and never taking it out of the garage. Just don't make sense to me.

    If you do go to sell it I'm sure you'll find a collector willing to take if off your hands.

    Very interesting read. Even that man said they are rare to find. Shame I have one sitting in my safe.
