    I have found this to be untrue...



    Pistols made approximately before serial 0T27XX were not of Mk1* specification and have no slide markings. They were only on slides of pistols made after this spec change which included;

    Barrel lug changed from round to square.
    Extractor & ejector modified.

    The designations for the Inglis pistols are: No1Mk1, No1MkI*, No2MkI and No2MkI*

    The vast majority of both No1 (Tangent rear sight) and No2 (fixed rear sight) pistols were both originally at the Inglis factory marked ONLY with the "MkI*" portion of the designation.

    If the No1 or No2 markings are present on the slide, they are (almost) always handstamped (post war in service) [the exception to this are the post war manufactured slides by CAL] to correct the model designation on the gun.

    INGLIS DIAMOND HI POWER - C43351 - United States

    Here is an "Inglis Diamond" No2MkI* and the model designation is clearly "MkI*"

    The "Inglis Diamond" marked guns are said to have been manufactured during the last week of production.

    I did make a mistake about saying No.2 instead of Mk1*.

    But the Mk1 pistols had no slide markings is the point i was making. It was only the spec changes to Mk1* that prompted the slide markings to begin.

    Your right My serial number is 0T36XX and it is unmarked on the slide. A bit funny in that the author of the Inglis Diamond had all of this information when he was researching the book. He had asked for information and serial numbers and I sent him mine years ago.

    Indeed! Which makes yours a Mk1 like mine.

    Better hope that extractor never breaks as sourcing a Mk1 spec will be tricky. I have a spare which is mark with a 2 (Mk2 version of extractor which was used in the Mk1*)

    When fitted in the slide it is too long and hangs out the back of the slide.
