Do you mean the 'stripper clip guide' aka 'The Spoon'? Anybody who sells stripper clips should be selling these for about $0.50 to $1.00 each. A good place to get them is Chuck Rupe at Wu's Surplus (cheap and excellent condition). Buy several!

There is also a plastic device that fits on your belt. The magazine goes in the bottom (its like an AR-15 magazine well) then you feed the magazine with stripper clips from the top. Magazine is released by a button (just like your AR). I never saw the need for these then the stripper clip guid is lighter, cheaper, smaller, and easier to use IMHO.

You should try the LULA loader/unloader that is advertised here. It's slick, saves your fingers and supposed to save the feed lips on your mags.

Cammenga has a model that works with stripper clips. Very fast and no sore thumb.
LULA can't even come glose to that speed with loose ammo.

Check out the Beta company's stripper clip loader. It's the best I've tried.

STRIPPER CLIPS ARE ONLY FASTER IF THEY ARE PRE-LOADED.

A LULA is faster if the stripper clips are unloaded, which most ammo is loose. If you think that loading stripper clips and then loading your mags is faster than a LULA, then you obviously haven't tried both of them. Another benefit of the LULA is the ease of unloading ammo that you don't want to shoot. It takes about 5 seconds.

Believe me, the LULA is no gimmick. I'm really happy with the one I bought.

Remember, all ammo does not come on stripper clips, so you will have to pre-load ammo onto the clips. Besides, why worry about stripper clips, just have more mags that are already loaded.

I don't own one but saw one at a gun show couple weeks ago, looked like it worked great to me. The price was about $20.00.

It should be obvious that we are talking about ammo on stripper clips, read the original post.

Which is why its a great family activity to load stripper clips while watching TV.

Very True.

Because I can buy 1000's of rounds worth of stripper clips for the cost of a single 30 round magazine. To put all my ammo on stripper clips won't break the bank - it would take 1000's of dollars to buy all the magazines I'd need to load up my ammo.

Well, I don't know about anybody else here, but I'd sure like to know your source for "...1000's of rounds worth of stripper clips for the cost of a single 30 round magazine."

Around here, a new 30rd USGI mag is in the $30 range. About the best I can do on ammo is the SA 300rd battle pack for around $40. Where are you getting your ammo?

He said thousands of rounds worth of CLIPS for the price of a mag...
IE a few hundred clips for $30
Link Posted: 10/23/2002 11:43:03 AM EDT
Heh...see...I was all excited about this cheap ammo!

Before this thread gets carried away,,, The Lula is a great loader if you're loading loose ammo. The Cammenga and the Beta (that I always forget about) are the best with ammo on strippers.
If you like your ammo loose, fine. Many of us prefer to store it on strippers. Mine comes right out of the Dillon and right onto s/clips.

Guy's,
Thanks for your help an info. I have not been able to find any of these loaders over the internet. Any help in this area would be appreciated.
Thanks again......Gary

Denny's Guns (www.glocksbr.com) on the industry section of this site is offering $1 off on the maglula. Check it out.

I find (especially being in the service and living in the field for extended periods of time) that the biggest reason to put or keep your extra rounds on stripper clips as opposed to extra magazines is space. the space it takes to store a 30 round magazine can be better employed by storing 90 rounds on strippers. (but thats just my opinion)

ps: another good source for stipper speed feeders (in my experience) is army navy surplus stores.
