    I suppose it might work in a one on one situation or with one soldier guarding a staircase. The enemy would have to think that they were facing one opponent for them to rush his position after a ping.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I found an interesting ordnance photo showing the development of the M1icon clip dated 12-4-31. The top row displays 10 round .30 caliber clips, so there should have been a 10 round capacity, prototype .30 caliber Garand rifle early on. However, I have yet to come across a photo of that rifle.

    If I was deaf, I think a chunk of metal flying up might be a clue.

    I know the Mondragon had an early clip but not aware of 30-06 usage. I’ll have to put my google foo techniques to work as I haven’t seen a Garandicon 10 round with that shape. Thank you for posting Bob.

    Looks a bit like the Pederson clips.
