Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Enfield No.2 Mk1*

#1 Post by Greenmachine » Sun Jun 09, 2019 5:15 pm

Picked this up recently, I have it partially disassembled because it has extraction issues and the cylinder doesn't lock up tight with the trigger pulled. but my main question is the wooden grips are they authentic ? because all the wooden grips ive seen have some kind of checkering to them. they look well made but im thinking there aftermarket.

They look after market to me. Most of the Enfield Service Revolvers have Bakelite Grips

Look Aftermarket to me also. Mine have the black bakelite grips w/disc.

I had to replace the "hand" lever as my cylinder would slip

Also had to add shim to cylinder to prevent front to back slop. This was causing light primer strikes.

Here are a couple of sources for new repro's

Definitely aftermarket or homemade. Correct grips for a No. 2 Mk I* would be Bakelite composition with a stock disk.
