These things only sell for about $300 max and it will never be "original". It is an Enfield produced gun, so not even one of the rarer manufacturers. I would assume that since most shoot extremely low with most commercial ammo it would not help too much with accuracy either. They were designed for .38/200 grain bullet and most you can find now is in the 158 gr range. I personally have about 11 of these things and a number of Webley's as well so I would just keep it for the "oddity" of it's existence, and since I do have some replacement grips lying around I would probably put the barrel on it, but I do not know if you have that kind of sentiment for these pistols, or what you paid for it originally.Just curious about the value as I'm wondering if it's worth putting a regular length no.2 barrel on it (found one for sale, $117), just to have it fit the holster, improve accuracy, and look the way it was originally designed to.
Also, I've always wondered, is it extremely difficult to open since you do not have as much barrel to grab onto now?
