Looking for information on these magazines

The smaller mag is a Winchester and has M-88 stamped on the inside. I looked up that rifel and you could get it in 303. However, this mag will not hold 303 rounds. The other appears to be a military style mag and it does have British 303 rounds in it. Can some one tell me the exact rifle the military mag goes to? Also, is there a way to date both these mags?

Don't know about the Winchester mag, but the military mag is from an Enfield.

Yeah an Enfield is hardly a rare gun.

And the Winchester mag, from the Model 88, was only available in .284 Winchester and the .308 Winchester family of cartridges. It was never available in .303 British.
