    hello, me and my roomie are looking for a magazine or a few of them for the 1943 Lee Enfield SMLE bolt action that he has. does anyone know where we can get some for decent prices? and any positive way to tell if it IS a SMLE or other? its got 'ENGLAND" script, the wrist joint only has TT22803, and its repeated on the bolt handle's arm. the bolt itself says C5 if that helps. its got a japanese sight mount for a small scope which is currently on it, the stock is sporterized, so i dont know, i see an Arrow, G and P on the barrel thickest part, (the lug?) all info would be appreciated!

    Typically, the enfield tho the mag is removeable, it's usually just left in place and loaded by stripper clips in the top of the rifle, the stripper clip guides are built into the receiver. 1943 date would probably be a No.4 Enfield as opposed to the earlier mk. III.
