he!!o, I am new to the forums and have a question about my new Enfield SMLE that I got on friday.
My Enfield No1 Mk3 has the magazine cut off, but I can't figure out how to disengage it I guess you could say. I had done it yesterday but forgot how I had got around it. Right now, my magazine cut off is in "single shot mode" and I can't pull it out all the way so it can feed all of the rounds. I know somewhat what I did, so this may help: I pulled the bolt back to the rear, then I switched the safety lever backwards into the position in which you wouldn't be able to cycle the action, and then I pulled the magazine cut off out all of the way. I've tried to do this again but it won't work. Please help.
I'm a noob to Enfields

Push down on it with your thumb and flick it out.

as stated above pull the knob and push down slightly with the thumb through the charging area , it has a catch to prevent it falling open , sometimes they can be a tad bit stiff

Only time I had a problem with my cut off was when I tried a different magazine and the relief cut for the cut off wasn't deep enough so it bound up till I pushed in the mag release and wiggled the mag, then after I got the cut off pulled out I was able to dump that magazine.
I still have that magazine, I need to examine it more closely. The original numbered magazine works fine with the cut off.
