Just when I am not looking one pops up. A older gent in his 80's thinning his herd. They are seldom seen today. Even had lanyard and holster with 2 John Ingliss magazines. All matching with perfect bore ftr 62 at Enfield

To know if the mags are Inglis, there will be a JI stamped about a 1/4 of the way up from the base plate, on the front spine.

Yes magazines stamped JL. Ran a magazine at 7yds from ready punching out 2 rds. Shot tea saucer group and ran 100%. Lots of history here and in rarity of high powers there was never to many of them. The English got about 50k and the Chinese about 30k and the Canadians the rest. Belgium a small postwar amount maybe 500. Canada had 13k left in 2019 .

The Chinese never got the HP's they were used by the Canadian military and sold off to other countries. I was issued one briefly but ended up with a regular pistol. The tangent sights were so far off that you couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

When Canada went to Afghanistan there were about 5K new ones remaining in stores and they were sent to the base that I was working at for cleaning and test firing, then issued to the troops on the second roto.

There are zero remain in stores, but there are still new in wrapper magazines in stores.
