380 mk 2 Revolver ID


Another little mystery round,at least for me, the headstamp is K 380 2 Z it has a dull grey anodised case with a Wood Rod distance piece,a rn gm.bullet ,anvil and 2 fire holes ,the primer pocket is bright silver plated ,labbett only shows 2 fluted drill rounds and states no inspectors rounds were made in this caliber, was this Kynoch drill/dummy round used by the Brits or was it an overseas contract ? thanks Randy


Not British military - commercial sales by Kynoch to countries like Kuwait.


OK thanks John, Randy
