Hi forum

Faced with the impossibility of finding an original one, and with the intention of making a 3D dummy magazine (with a 3D printer) for my MLM, I need some measurements :



I also need to know the width of the magazine.

If someone can complete the picture above with the measurements in millimeters, he will be of a really great help... Wink

 Dimensions are approximate, measured with use of a tape and squinting eyeballs.

Magazine is tapered from the back to the front.
Back top - 24
Back bot - 24
Front top - 17
Front bot - 17

Look to your front, mark your target when it comes!

Thank you very, very much. Clap
Now, I have some work to convert all this measures into a 3D drawing.

I found a couple of them during the last months, but the sellers never wanted to sell them abroad despite the fact that they are totally free for importation/purchase in my country (pre-1900 weapon). I never found one in Europe, even in UK...

I too have been on the long time hunt. I need one and a bolt. Nothing found in Canada or US so far. I keep looking.

I think that I have found a chap with just a bolt body in OZ, so am working on a trade for equally rare Webley parts....any body have a 'hand' for a Mk.V revolver for which they would trade?

Englishman_ca : if you have a magazine for me, maybe that I have a bolt for you (or at least some bolt parts)... Tongue

Fross, if I find two magazines, then one of them can be yours. Smile

now that is a deal in the making , this is in the end the only true references and access we have to what so often is forbidden or relegated to waste by ignorance , 

hope things come together for both of you ,
