Do I need special stripper clip guides to load the magazine in the FAB-10, or can I just use normal stripper clip guides? Where can I find the special stripper clip quides?

If I were you I would just load one at a time,the upper has to swing all the way open to use a stripper,and even then it is a tight fit!

I would DEFINITLY use stripper clips, its way faster loading the rifle with them. And you can load the stripers before you even go to the range. My FAB-10 did not come with a guide, but I did purchase one. I have not trided the method troy mentioned but that souds like it would work well. And a lot cheaper than a $10 guide. [url]http://www.gogogadgets.net[/url] this web site has the NEW nylon guides. I have the old style guides that are regular guides with a metal bar welded to it. You can also make the old kind very easyily (w/ a welder) if you perfer this style. There are very detailed pictures here [url]http://quarterbore.com/ar15m16/fab10.htm[/url] -William

Where can you get the old style guides? Are they cheaper than the new style?
