    Sorry if this is the wrong section for this, the magazine just reminds me of a WW1 Lee-Enfield magazine..

    Thanks for your time guys, I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Interesting that. Remind me how easy it is to remove the magazine on the .303. I remembering firing it as an army cadet in the early 70's. The kick was lpke a mule, really blackened shoulders even with a beret stuffed inside the shirt. I wonder why they opted for the recharging of the magazine off clips, 2 up 3 down, when it would have been just as quick to change the mag? Cost perhaps.
