I'm in the market for about 500 stripper clips. What should I expect to pay for them? Anybody have some they want to sell? Somebody on the EE has them priced at $45/1k. Is that good?

The price sounds cheap to me. That is $0.045 each at $ 45.00 per 1,000. I bought some from Cheaper than Dirt that were sold "as new", but in reality were rusty. I think it is because they are made of two different metals. Steel and Brass which when touching corrode due to galvanic action. I have to spray them down with WD-40 and wipe them off, but I bet they rust up again.

I have some all steel .308 that are probably at least 25 years old and some 9mm that are at least 50 years old that are in great shape. Just be sure and get a sample, or see some pics before you buy any.

It beats Wu's price of 6 cents a stripper clip, which was the best price I've seen for them so far.

Get a sample or pic first.

That is an excellent price.

As stated above, Chuck Rupe's are priced right and shiney new.

I wish there was a way to check these before buying. Out of the one hundred I have almost 80% are way too tight.

Get them from Wu's. Okay its a few dollars more but I have bought several hundred and all looked new.

I purchased 500 stripper clips,25 cloth bandoleers,and 50 cardboards from New River Salavage (910-455-1252) located in Jacksonville,SC for $40. Every item was as new and I was very satisfied with the entire deal.

I think that www.ammunitionstore.com has a good price at $20/200. That works out to .10 each. You can also get 24 spoons for $13.00. Of course, if you can pass some money on to a fellow ar15.com denizen, then go for it.

Edited to state: I stand corrected. Wu's prices beat the best that I have seen short of buying in bulk.
