The non detachable, detachable Magazine. AKA: Stop that

Posted on March 2, 2018 at 2:14 PM
   Ever hear something that immediately puts you into "full cringe" mode?  I do. Whenever I hear someone ask me where they can get more mags for their Enfield. I usually ask if the old one is missing. and most certainly it is not, they just wanted another two or three for "quick reloading".

    With this being the "Month of the Enfield" Here at old troopers, lets give the old Brit warhorse its due and "nip this one in the bud" shall we?


       Stop it, just stop it!  Good I have gotten that out.

   Here is why. The Magazines on the SMLE series (Lee metford all the way through the 2A{the pattern 14 and 17 rifles excluded}) were detachable. But they are not INTERCHANGEABLE They were detachable for ease of cleaning! Not so the soldier could rapidly reload!  Each magazine is individually fitted to its rifle. And a magazine from another rifle may (and in many cases) will not interchange. 
        The rifle was made when everyone else had a 5 or six shot rifle. Having 10 round capacity was "far superior" according the the Board of Ordinance (Their ordinance corps). So superior in fact that they placed, like most armies of the time, a "magazine cut off" to make the solder fire one shot at a time. Very common for the long range marksmanship oriented armies of the pre WW1 era. The detachable/ interchangeable magazine for a combat rifle really did not catch on until the semi-automatic era. Before than you loaded your rifle with stripper clips. Remember, the clip goes INTO the MAGAZINE.
       In fact many of the early semi autos were still meant to be fed with stripper clips. Rifles like the SVT38/40, and the many German failed rifles may have had detachable mags, but you may have only been issued two of them and they were all hand fitted to the individual rifle.
       The concept of battle rifles with interchangeable box mags all started with the anemic M1 carbine. It (excuse the pun) sort of grew from there. With the STG series, And the post war "Kalishnicov automant" pattern, and the Nato .30, er.. 7.62 battle rifles.

     So those of you out there looking for more Mags for their #4mk1, please remember somewhere there is a poor rifle missing its mag because of people like you..

Please stop the madness: Use a stripper clip!



 This is old troopers actual

 Out.
