Default Bolt Action Magazine style - Name?

Looking for a little help!

I'm having trouble finding a proper name for a style of box magazine that I recall being told at one time was called a "drop box magazine" or a "drop magazine". NOT referring to detachable box magazines. As I'm searching for this type of magazine now as a bit of research, I'm having trouble finding a proper name - indicating that the term I learned many years ago was wrong.

Basically, a top loader with an extended magazine beneath the belly of the stock. Something like an old Enfield box mag, where the mag body extends below the belly of the stock, but is not itself detachable.





Any ideas fellas?

Definitely an "integral box magazine," but I was taught that this kinda was a "sub-species" of sorts. Kinda like how hinged floor plate, fixed box, and blind mags are all integrals. Maybe folks don't divide down that far since the style I'm looking for sure doesn't seem to be popular these days.

I think "extended box magazine" would be the proper term.
