I just go this today. It is a Smith & Wesson Victory model that was made for sale, or lend lease to
Britain during WWII

After the handgun ban in England that said they could only own .22 caliber pistols, this Victory model was neutered to .22 mag. The chambers were sleeved, and I belive a new bbl was installed, not sure on that though..

Don't know how it made it into this country, there are no import marks..

If this could happen in England, it can happen here!!!

My Dad has one that was redone in Britain to chamber 38 special instead of the Brit 38 chambering. It has the Brit proof marks for the armory work. A ton of these were imported to the US in the 50's.

It has replacement grips and I would love to get him a set of original grips.
Dinger, glad to have you with us.

I just hope the example set by your government helps keep US gunowners vigilant.

Other than that, we certainly sympathize with your plight.

hi dzerhinsky,I'm sure you guys can put together a suppressor if you really wanted one!! as the saying goes here in the UK " if ya can't buy it, make it"
I'm sure someone would do that but most folks don't want to incur the wrath of Federal Law enforcement.

Being a long term guest of Club Fed is not appealing.
