A while back someone posted what cardboards they used to modify a 7-pocket bandolier so it would carry 3,10-round strippers in each pocket instead of the standard 2.
I can't remember what it was that they used. I think the original post was on the old board.
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks in advance.
Nobody? Come on lets get those tin-foil thinking hats on:)
I remember someone posting that all they had to do was to cut up a commonly available package of some type.
What was the box they cut up?
If you buy a 4 pocket bandolier that includes the hardware, it comes with the 3 stripper clip cardboards. What the guy did was take one of those apart and use it as a template to make more cardboards out of boxes that are used for post office priority mail.
I guess if you asked nicely I could ask my friend for one of the cardboards he has and I could draw up a template for you.
Uh, just wondering, how does one cardboard help you hold two? In a 7 pocket, I can get one loaded stripper clip into the cardboard, and stick the other one just loose in the pocket. Am i doing something wrong?
I use my Federal American Eagle box, measure the height necessary to cover the entire clip, and break out the kitchen shears. If you use the AE boxes you can fit 3 loaded 10 round stripper clips in each box if you alternate the direction of each clip. (1st clip facing right, 2nd clip facing left, 3rd clip facing right)
A template? Yes, that would be very nice, thank you. I would appreicate if you could post it here for everyone to share, and, if its not too much trouble, email me a copy. Thank you very much.
Thanks. I'll also go look for some of those boxes.
Yes, the standard 7-pocket cardboards hold 2 10-round strippers clips. Both clips go point down in a snug and rattle free package.
Troy is correct. The 5.56 strippers fit one on top of the other with bullet points in opposite directions.
I was thinking of the 7.62 strippers earlier. Sorry for the misdirection.
You guys have tooooo much free time, just put them in without cardboard.
