I lost the mag for my rifle a long time ago. I was told some rifles take a mag with a squared bottom and others take the mag with rounded bottom edges. Anyone know if that's true or not? If I do need the rounded mag does anyone know where to get one?

I believe this is the short mag No. You are looking for the rounded bottom magazine. Many dealers have a the habit of calling all lee Enfields SMLE's which can make it difficult when sourcing the correct parts. Look at the differences on the 'spine'.

I took out the mag and noted it was unserialized, and maybe was new as the lips were folded flat. I fixed by looking at your pictures and now it feeds 10 rounds without a hitch. I'll bring it out to the range this weekend and test it under fire.

Thanks again, Doug in the PNW. Needle-nosed pliers will give you the reach you need to tilt the lips without running into side of the magazine. I have a No.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I had one Enfield no4 mk1 that I ended up selling because I didnt have this information. I bought another about 5 years ago hoping for better feeds and while it was better, it still jammed every 3 rounds or so. I will use your information to tune the magazine so I can finally enjoy my beautful rifle.
