    Magazines, magazines, magazines!

    Over the years, the Britishicon army dump permission of mine has produced some great WW2 relics. It also gives up some relatively common items, but everything is worth saving if it is from WW2, (in my opinion!). Magazines, magazines, magazines! From lots of different weapons.

    Again with the bayonet boss from an Arisakaicon converted bayonet. Lots of #1 mags...or are some earlier? Germanicon anti-aircraft mags again?

    4th one with the Arisakaicon bayonet lug now BAR. I also have 2 that I've tracked down for fitting a Ross bayonet to an LE. Same Germanicon mags I'm afraid....just recycling news for the blog. They fitted with the title! As for the LE mags, I do check for earlier ones but some are corroded along the spine so difficult to tell.

    RCS - Me too!

    WWI Troops who used them said they worked better with 15 rounds in them but they created issues as they caught in the wire and everything else attracted mud like flies to cow dung and were not liked one iota.
    My friend had one but on sold it before I could get a hold of it a real rare beast which should bring good $'s if one ever comes up for sale.

    I seem to recall something like that Clarky but the pic shows how much the dang thing hung down and say with a bayonet on the front & a full 20 rounds the MkIII would have felt like a wheel barrow full of bricks......
