OK, the confusion is understandable.

In the 1920s when the British were looking for a new gun to replace the MK VI in .455, Webley and Scott offered up their version.

The government didn't like the lock work, so they went off and at the Enfield Lock small arms factory developed their own handgun, based largely on the Webley pattern, but with a different lock.

The Webley, as others have said, always has copious markings on it identifying it as a product of that company and, to the best of my knowledge, was never supplied in a Mk I* (double action only) configuration.

Mk I* Enfields are virtually all you find these days, as virtually all of the ones that were made with hammers with spurs were, throughout the years, converted to Mk I* pattern.
