    I recently purchased a 38 cal. revolver. It has England stamped on the side and BNP stamped in about 8 place's. It has a 5 inch barrel. Can any one point me in a direction to get more info on this piece?

    Thanks

    Sure, right here.
    Right after you post good clear close pictures.

    Your description fits a Smith & Wesson lend lease or Victory model; an Enfield No 2, or a Webley Mk IV that I can think of offhand.

    It looks like an Enfield #2 in .38 Smith & Wesson, not .38 Special. I couldn't tell you much more than that.

    Yup. It's an Enfield. British service revolver from the the 1930s through the end of WW II. Should have a date stamped on the barrel.

    As noted it shoots the 38 S&W cartridge (not the longer 38 Special). This ammo is pricey but easy to reload if you care to do it. I have several pistols in this caliber (also known by various other names like .380 Mk 2, 38 British, 38/200) and load for them all.

    Here's my Enfield. Look familiar?
