Thanks Kev for the reply.
I don't think the the size is too much of a issue, but i would guess that it should be about 12" long with a curved bottom. i have also just realized, after lifting it out of the boot of the land rover, the mag is also missing Crying or Very sad
as it is an impulse mag, not sure if i can trace one. i will have to have a word with my step brother in oxford!!!
Thanks chris
