The Enfield No. 2 Mark 1 revolver was developed at the Royal Small Arms Factory in Enfield, England from 1926 – 1927. This revolver was adopted for British Military service in 1932 as ‘Enfield Revolver, .38 Calibre, No.2 Mark 1’. After 1938, almost all No.2 Mk.1’s were converted into ‘No.2 Mk 1*’ configuration. Enfield No.2 Mk 1* was developed in the late 1930’s for the British Tank Corps, and are distinguished from the early Mark 1 by spurless, Double Action Only hammers, lighter mainsprings, and re-shaped grip side plates. The spurless DAO hammers were required by Tank Corps command to avoid snagging the hammers on tank internals.
