    Default Stripper/Charger clip advice

    Hello all! Been browsing the web and came across this forum and was wondering if any of you could help. When I was a lot younger I collected Stripper/Charger clips and built up a fairly decent collection. Anyhoo things have moved on and the collection is gathering dust in a box. My interests now are predominantly shooting old milsurp bolt guns and so that I can feed this addiction I want to off load some of my clips. No dea what any of them are worth or where to sell.
    I'd like to keep a few of them however I suspect the most valuable ones are as folows - PTRS -41, RSC Model 1917, 1885 Mannlicher. The Mannlicher in particular I know is as rare as the proverbial hens teeth and before anyone says anything no, it's nothing like the 1886 clip.
    All are mint.

    Regards

    Blighty.

    Hi and welcome to the forum Blighty.

    As a 'specialised' hobby, collecting WW2 gear is pretty much out there. To specialise in collecting something within a specialised area is pretty unique. I don't think I know anyone that collects stripper clips ! Plenty of people collect cartridges and such like, but very few collect clips. However, saying that I am sure many of our members would be interested in your items. I suggest you upload some pictures of what you have and take it from there Use this thread to show your clips, you don't need to open a new one.

    Any problems uploading pics, just give me a shout.

    No problem. Been drinking so will do so tomorrow. Part of the reason why I stopped collecting was because it is, like you say, a bit specialist. And a bit expensive. Imagine if you will the humble Mosin Nagant rifle. Cartridges for these, and because it is a military rifle, the clips that hold them, were made by every country that ever fielded them in a conflict (USA, GB, Finland, Germany, China, Russia/USSR etc, etc). Then imagine the sub variants from different manufactures in each country. Then the changes introduced over time in each country. To be honest it got too much. Then the inert rounds to make them look 'right' = expensive. Dammit. I'd rather use the money for my new hobby. .303 is knocking on for 50 a hundred so you can understand the need for funds.

    Well if you have any Bren/ZB/L4 LMG or related experimental mags give me a shout. ATB, Chris.
