    Chicanery on Gunbroker

    Y'all are shocked, I know...

    but some clown has a common Enfield revolver listed as a 'rare training model.'

    Maybe from the fact it has "DP' stamped everywhere on every piece you can see.

    Well, it could be yours for a minimum of $795 USD, unless you're outbid...

    Britishicon armorers did not go about stamping DP on serviceable parts. "Drill Purpose" on a rifle for a drill team to twirl about is easy to envision. DP guns are useful in preventing unnecessary wear and tear on service weapons. Bayonet training, mechanical training, repeated assembly and disassembly, crew drills, in short any kind of training which DOES not involve firing the weapon. As a shooter, the value is nil.

    Instructional use only as OT explained takes the wear & tear and possible damage from fumbling crunchies away from serviceable weapons that are required to do the business elsewhere.

    The only exception to that might be some of the early models of Ross rifle which were rendered obsolete by newer models, and relegated to training. One will find some, say 1905 Mk II* in excellent condition, mechanically sound and quite shootable but stamped DP. That said, I would never shoot one without a full once over. For any other things like the Enfield revolver mentioned in the OP, no way would I shoot one.......

    Only parts on a dp that would be of re use would be the wood on a rifle as it has might be the only wood of that model of rifle left to replace your damage parts

    Its a "Tanky" piece, and knowing them, and the tight spots they had to negotiate, they probably brought out a DP pistol for the purpose, who knows but its not worth that amount............how many do you want??
