Just traded for a 1973 dated 2A1 Ishapore 308 and have a couple questions. 1st the mag. is rounded like a 303 mag.(it feeds fine) also the sight is graduated to 2000 not 800. Rifle is in really nice shape and was wondering about the odd mag. and sight.

that would be a 2A rifle with that rear sight , the 2A1 had the other , the magazine would be a 303 mag as the correct 2A & 2A1 had the squarish box , if it feeds OK id leave it i think , the 303 is slightly longer than the 308 so it should work fine i think ,

After checking the feeding from the 303 mag. I have found it feeds 5 rounds fine. Any more than 5 and it will not feed. Guess I will be needing the correct mag. Any advise on where to find one would be appreciated. Thanks
