Found the other day at a local shop. It's your typical remington model 51 in .380 accept on the right side it has only british BNP with crown proofs. Also a very small broadarrow marking. It is threaded on the end of the barrel. Could it be for a silencer ? It looks to have been original or done a long time ago.
I read somewhere that the SAS used these pistols but can't find the article. Any ideas or info ?

I never heard of it. However, the British pressed alot of non-standard weapons into service in 1939 due to a shortage of firearms. It's possible SAS used the Remington, it's a slick pistol, but was it even in production in 1939?

British Proofed Remington 51

Just noticed this old thread.

Britain did indeed purchase a small but unkown quantity of Remington Model 51 pistols. These were ordered by the British Admirallty who were suffering from a shortage of handguns' during most of the First World War. The pistols probably were not deliverd until 1919 and were sold in the 1920's, in new condition. While this purchase has been known about for a few years no broad arrow examples have been obseved to my knowlage. This is a rare pistol if it is broad arrow marked.

If the original poster see's this could he please post pictures or PM me. Thank you.

Regards
