I inherited one and I don't know much about them. The pistol is in 90% shape, the barrel looks like it has been cut down to 2 1/2 inches and they placed the front sight back on. It shoot 38 S&W rounds, which are hard to find. I think that it was made circa 1940's for Britian. I read that the 38 S&W round was similiar to the webley cartridge. It has a lanyard loop on the underside of the grip and a set of "bone" grips. It shoots great and the action is like glass.
