It prevents feeding rounds from the mag, so you can load one round at a time "saving" the rounds in the mag for rapid fire.

Ok, so it was just something that they put in there to save ammo?

My collection so far. I am wanting to get a VZ-52, and a WW1 mauser with the roller coaster sites added to my collection, but any mil-surp at a good price that crosses my path I will buy

Yes, in the olden days they didnt want troops "wasting" ammo. (The M1903 has a mag cut off too.) It was later deemed unnecessary and was dropped to save materials and machining time.

I was thinking it would be nice to always have five rounds when the other guys charged, or when things got ugly.
