I'm hoping someone can clear up some confusion I have regarding No. 3 and 4 magazines. I understand that the No. 3 magazines were made/ converted for the Mark VI and Mark VII cartridge which was introduced circa 1910. When was the No. 3 magazine discontinued in favor of the No. 4? The trigger guards that utilized the No. 3 needed a cutout to clear the clip. The no. 4 does not. When was this switch made? Were the troops during WW1 issued both magazines? What magazine would be appropriate for the No. 1 Mk III at the start of the war?
