I came across this on eBay while looking for resin Webleys: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251350997568? ... 1423.l2649

It's a S&W version made for Indiana Jones reenactors, does that make it a no-no or is it ok for use?

Smith and Wesson never made a version of the Mk6, only Enfield and Webley. I think Webley would have sued the pants of S&W if they tried but they had their own very good revolvers in .45 and .455 so there was no need. The replica shown would have to be a Webley or Enfield copy and with out being able to see any markings (Presuming the cast picked them up) its hard to tell what it was copied from.

Your next problem would be importing it, I assume your a re-enactor so it shouldn't pose a problem.
