Tapco has some cheap China made NATO strippers, quality seems to be ok. Otherwise I find them in small numbers for about .50 cents + a piece.

They're just clips and have been since 1905 when the first M1903 rifles were produced. There are USGI clips available but you gotta look fairly hard.

These clips are different from M1903 clips although they're the same basic spring clip design. They don't hold ammo well once you pull the clip from the bandoleer. They barely speed magazine loading as there are rounds dropping off all the time. They're fairly handy for sticking an extre 5 rounds into a depleted magazine and there's a clip guide built into the rifle's receiver.

Not in mine. I have a scope mount that uses that area.

I'm looking for a better way to store ammo, other than in mags or boxes. i've seen kits around, but they are pretty pricey.

Try Sierra Supply- tx 970 259 1822- they had usgi M14 bandolier kits for $7.00 each. Includes mag charger,6 cardboards,1 bandolier and 12 stripper clips. Its a Mom and Pop operation and you may have to leave a message but they do get back to you. I have bought quite a bit from them in the past. Gene

NAM --

I usually keep a "30 cal" can full of loaded M14 clips and this mode is better than loose ammo. But loading the magazines isn't much easier than just popping them in one at a time.

Loading them into bandoleers with the cardboard makes it easy to grab a couple, but loaded magazines are still the best solution.

Once wet the cardboard pockets are mush.

These are short supply items and I doubt have been produced in a long time. 55 gallon drums of M1 clips show up all the time for some reason.
