I have a K31 but no clips for it.  I'm looking for ones that work and will last me a long time.

Are the plastic reproductions from northridge any good?


There's also 3d printed repros:


I can also get originals on ebay but they're the most expensive of the three and I'm not sure how they stack up against modern polymer ones.

I only know about the originals, made from paper and metal foil, and they were never intended to be re-usable. I saw some for sale recently, $9.95 each, looks like they are already out of stock at Apex

I have a few of the original clips ,the cardboard and metal, they've held up well over the years as long as you don't get them wet.

Rather than keep using them I picked up another metal 6 round magazine.  I know I paid less than the $60. that they're commanding now, but they'll never wear out.

Ever since Guisan passed, the Swiss rifle forum just isn't the same, that's were I got mine.

Libertytree has originals and repros, I hear good things about the repros

I have some of the northridge ones... They’re good to go for all you’ll ever need them for.

Northridge it is.  I might pick up an original just for the sake of it.

I've been using the same two original chargers/stripper clips for over 15 years.  If the non metal parts starts showing wear, I rehab it with hair spray.  Just like new!

I have two of the plastic ones from Northridge. I like them, they work well and they seem to be more sturdy than the original ones. YMMV

I know a lot of people hate gunshows but I’ve picked up a hunch of original clips at gunshows from .50-$2 apiece just mixed in with other stripped clips.

I still got he plastic ones because I like the cardboard ones for display and don’t wanna wreck them
