Yes.

The No1 MkIII magazine has a longer rear rib (the part that latches the magazine in place) and a rib spring.

The No4 has a short rear rib and no spring.

There are in fact several versions of Magazine for the No1 too although the standard and most common one for the No1 MkIII and III* is the 4th variation (a 4 is stamped on the rear rib)

I can post a pic if it would help

the "4" is just visible at the bottom of the rib on the left hand magazine
