Can someone please post a picture, diagram, specification, or whatever on the correct magazine for a Lee Enfield Carbine (LEC)  stamped as a "No1*".
 
 
It's supposedly an irish carbine if that makes a difference to the magazine configuration. Someone said it was a 7-round magazine?
 
Even less likley.
Does anyone have a spare, or a source for a spare for such a beast? What would be areasonable price (ball park is fine) to buy one? Confused

Shamu,

It is a six (6) round magazine per "Small Arms of the Anglo-Boer war, 1899-1902"

I thought so too, now theres some debate about 6 rounder for Lee Metford #1* & a 10-rounder for a Lee Enfield #1*.
Not really my area of experetise I'm afraid.

If I can be of further help please let me know. I have a cousin in Canada who owns a "1" carbine.

Is this your carbine?
