Regarding the marks above the cylinder release, I have an article that describes them as follows: The top mark is the broad arrow, signifying government ownership, the one below is the symbol of "His Majesty's Crown," the "G7" is the inspector's mark, and the "E" at the bottom is the acceptance and inspection mark of the Royal Small Arms Factory at Enfield Lock, a suburb of London. I couldn't find anything on the second set. The stamp on the rear face of the cylinder (it's upside down in the photo :eek:) is called the crossed pennant with split-tails, the military proofmark.
