Yes, Bob, it is indeed the .455 Webley auto that has two latch notches in the magazine to serve the purpose of a cutoff.
The concept was soon abandoned for military rifles* and the pistol is a real oddball of optimism.

*The cutoff on a 1913 Springfield is also the bolt stop and could not be removed as it was from other service rifles. I don't know why they didn't just quit machining the two positions, though.
