Ok for some reason I bought 3 AK-74 "stripper clips." These don't look like a typical stripper clip though. For one thing the back of the clip is solid metal. For another they don't fit into an AK. If you could get them to chamber the back of the clip would block the firing pin and even if it didn't the clip would hit the hood. The clips also don't fit into a bakelite mag. Or at least I can't figure out how to make them fit.

WTF are these for? Are they just for looks? Are these a gag item that I fell into owning?

Now I've got some bullets on a cheap looking metal strip. I feel used. I want my money back!!!!

If I understand you correctly, I think you need the "magazine loader" (similar to the "stripper clip guide" for AR-15 mags) to align the stripper clip to the rear of the mag. Then you push all the rounds down into the mag.

See this photo (from K-VAR):

They are used to load the magazine 10 rounds at a time. You will need a spoon to place on top of the magazine. The stripper clips are then placed on top of the magazines and held in place by spoon. The magazine is loaed by pressing the 10 rounds down into the magazine. The stripper simmply hold the rounds for quick and easy magazine reloading.

AK-74 clips hold 15 rounds.

Thanks guys I got them to work. It just took some figuring. I'm still not convinced that they are much faster than just loading the mag (counting loading the stripper and then inserting it into the mag). But they are certainly easier on the thumbs.

They were designed for rapid recharges during combat, the average soldier might go into battle with only 5 or so magazines on his person (at least that was how it was explained to me by a former east german soldier)-You load them before hand and then take them with you into combat and if you have to do a mag. recharge after expending your basic load it is faster than thumbing them in 1 at a time.
