    Value of Enfield .38/200 No 2 Mk1* revolver

    I want to know what the value of this revolver is. It is in NRA VG condition with excellent bore and action. It is not a recent import. It is marked ENGLAND. It is marked 54 on top of the barrel. I assume this to be the manufacturing date.

    I am no expert on Enfield revolvers but I do know that the price has gone up on these cool old revolvers. At least three manufacturers and some of the less common makers/variations have always been worth more(Howard Cultivator is a maker that comes to mind) and earlier revolvers with a hammer spur and functional DA/SA lock work....wood grips etc.

    In the early/mid 1990's gunstores in my area had these for sale for $50 each and buckets full of revolvers to choose from. They seem to sell for $300 to $400 or more these days...

    Keep hold of it Doug. Tough as old boots, ammo is and always will be plentiful, you'll never over-work it, it'll always go bang when you want it to..... and if it doesn't, just pull the trigger again. Bit of a bastxxd to fix but once it's fixed, they just run on and on and on forever. Ain't nothing going to stop it. They are impervious to sleet an' snow and drivin' rain. Salt laden water in the mangrove swamps........ just hose it down after operations with a fire hose, dry it out and oil it the next day ready for the same harsh treatment on next weeks operations. But one word of warning if I might be so bold. Don't enter into any shootin' competitions expecting a prize for accuracy.

    Dealt with zillions, fixed the same and carried one for ages. If you need to tell someone to do something in a foreign language, like '......move over a bit.....' you just need to wave it - and it speaks volumes

    "...ammo is and always will be plentiful..." Yep. .38 S&W is .38 S&W. It doesn't absolutely require a 200 grain bullet to work just fine. That was done by the Brits to try and increase the "power" of the cartridge without spending any money.
    There are hordes of 'em on Gunbroker(lot of hallucinations going on about prices too. Couple of dealers think they're worth nearly a grand.). They start at about $300US with most being between $400 and $500 USD.
    Spelling and Grammar count!

    Used to fire 9mmP in my S&W Victory when 38S&W wasn't immediately available. Not recommended but it works.

    I wouldn't use 9mmP in a .38 Enfield I have to say. There was a little known attempt to convert the No2 pistol to .38 rimmed and 9mm rimless with a ingenious little spring loaded locked plunger device. The device worked well, but, alas, the cylinders weren't as successful
