All the same, no difference.One for a type II and a couple for type IIIs.
Wishful thinkin' I s'pose.......
Sneaky, I suppose, but pretty stupid to go out with a magazine with empty cases in your own pistol. It must have been enough of a problem that the good Captains Sykes and Fairbairn had Colt to make the magazines that way. I would hope the men they had with them on their flying squads were above that sort of thing."This was done to prevent empty shell's from being loaded to appear as live rounds. Sneaky officers would sell live bullets and replace them with empty shells
so a regular mag would appear loaded upon inspection...."
All Officers received 2 full mags with the pistol at the start of their patrol.pretty stupid to go out with a magazine with empty cases in your own pistol.
