    Top Break Pistol

    This gun was purchased for $20. several years ago. Just curious if anyone knows anything about it. I'm new here so I may be at the wrong forum. From the end of barrel/sites to where the bullets eject is only 3". Self ejection, has no hammer fires by just pulling trigger. Markings EB3 BNP X5997 3 1/2 TONS 38". 767" Also has a crown above BNP.There are two swords close to tip of barrel, and near the handle a backwards G I two stars. Thanks DeeDee

    Welcome! I can't say I'm familiar with the markings, but a picture would be very helpful.
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    Sounds like a Enfield EB3 No2 Mark 1 .38 snubby (they were made very short barrel for sidearms for armored vehicle operators. And importers shortened guns to replicate the snub models.)

    But without a photo, that is a wild guess on my part.

    Does it look like this?

    Nifty - far better than the typical suicide special top break 38 SW revolvers of the day. That's a keeper.
