Wow!

Those are some nice looking rifles. Are they like mine with the hollow magazines? How do they shoot?

Yep, hollow mags, the 1918 shoots as well as you would expect these too, the 1917 i am yet to fire but will be on the next range trip :)
I have 3 other No2 MkIV*s all with their volley sights intact, will post them sometime soon as well.

I believe its about 25'000+ for the No2 MkIV*
Here's some of the history of NZ use of the No2
