    well first you need to figure out if its a enfield revolver no.2 mk 1 (illegally made by enfield from 1923-26 )
    or
    a webley mk vi (produced from 1915-1923)

    enfield illegally copied the webley's exterior but changed the internal dimensions so none of the parts interchanged, webley sued and won

    FOUND IT!

    Webley Mk VI: Similar to the Mk V, but with a squared-off "target" style grip (as opposed to the "bird's-beak" style found on earlier marks and models) and a 6-inch (150 mm) barrel. Officially adopted 24 May 1915,..... and also manufactured by RSAF Enfield under the designation Pistol, Revolver, Webley, No. 1 Mk VI from 1921–1926

    so you have a Webley No1, Mk VI produced at RSAF Enfield in 1926.

    ...And if it has been altered to fire .45 ACP rounds in half-moon clips, it has lost most of its collectors'-value premium.
    Further, it will no longer fire .455 Webley rounds. If you don't want to use .45 ACP in clips, you need to find .45 Auto-Rim cartridges.

    It's a nice gun, though.

    Don't try to fire modern "personal defense" ammunition in it, as it wasn't built to handle that kind of pressure. Lead-bullet loads are OK.

    It seems to be worth about $500.00, more or less.
