Thanks Sick, you've had your mag blocked since before I was born, so it must have been acceptable to the powers that be so far.
I was thinking of doing a permanent blocking of the mag, but it seems wrong to do it to the poor rifle.
I'd maybe send the issued magazine out of state if I could find a replacement. One of the reasons I really like the rifle is it's capacity though.

This is all so ridiculous. Maybe I'll just be done with it and replace it with one of the CZ 527's (.223 FS, or 527 7.62x39 carbine) that I've been lusting after.

There is no 5 round mag for the Lee Enfield. The mag holds 10 rounds Now we will put a max of 7 rounds in it.. For Now we have the protection of bolt action antique I wouldsuppose that any gunsmith could remove the support and spring and put a block in the bottom of the mag, so it will only take 7 rounds.

ProMag makes an aftermarket 5rd mag, but as Ariel said, it's pretty crappy.

Sadly, the 2A1 was made from 1963 till 1975

Recently purchased another Lee Enfield that was a Savage No.4 sporterized with a 5 shot magazine for $200. The 5 shot magazine was definitely the reason I purchased this rifle. The rifle was in very good condition. They make a no drill mounts for the No.4 and No.5 if you need a scope for hunting. The gunshop owner said he believes to have more 5 round magazines. Hopefully he can find them as I can always use a spare magazine.

This magazine was made in Japan and stamped Sante Fe, this was probably made in the 60's for the American and Canadian market for Big Game hunters using Lee Enfield rifles. I was using factory PPU 150 soft point ammunition. The Rifle did not experience any malfunctions. One of the old timers picking up the brass was telling me to not use any of the surplus military .303 ammunition as it was known to erode the barrel.
The price is under $13 for a box of 20 rounds. Very Happy with this rifle.
