SMLE Half Magazines!

Postby Ranch Dog » 25 Oct 2018 14

Yea! RifleMags.co.uk got their stock of 5 round magazines in for the No 4 & No 5. They are expensive but I don't care. I dislike the 10 round in that my Scout is a hunting rifle, it is always in the way.

Expensive, but from what I read on Enfield rifles, worth the money. I bought one that was listed on eBay, used a picture similar to that above, but when I received it, it was a 10-round with some kind of block in it. It was a much as these, I was a bit upset when I contacted the seller. Of course, eBay is good when it comes to satisfying the buyer.

I received the magazines today. Exactly what I was looking for and well worth the money!

Look Ma, no magazine!

It has just enough of a lip that you can grab it to pull it out vs. pushing it out through the receiver. Now, I can walk with my scout rifle at its balance point!

Finish and feed on the first one opened is excellent. I went to riflemags.co.uk to leave a review, but it doesn't look like the site is set up for them. Too bad, these are very nice. I noticed that they only have four left in their inventory, I'm glad that I bought three.

Got mine today. Well made and finished. Had a bit of trouble getting it to mount in rifle. Not a biggy as it could be my technique as once in it is nice and secure. Haven't tried to load some rounds yet as I have a rule about not loading live rounds into a firearm except in a safe location. I compared it to my two military mags and it looks identical.
