    Default Identification of Detachable, Internal Magazine

    I recently acquired two internal, but 'detachable', ("cassette"?) 4 round rifle magazines as part of a job lot auction purchase.

    The only markings are ".308" over ".243" - that's obviously compatible calibre info but no idea of maker or model to which they belong!

    Fired .308 cartridge case inserted to help with sense of scale!

    I have tried comparing images via Google; Remington Model 70/80 or Browning "A-bolt" 'hits' seem to show some similarities … but nothing conclusive (not knowing exactly what to call this style of mag doesn't help!).

    Thus, probably not military issue but I am hoping somebody's wider firearms knowledge will provide me with some insight...

    It looks like they are for a Browning BAR Mark 2 rifle....Pete.

    Pete,

    Many thanks

    I like Browning designs so, now I know what they are, they are even more welcome additions

    Majority of my collection shown below:

    Default Identification of 'Stripper' / 'Loading' Clip

    Can anyone help me identify the 'stripper' / 'loading' clip below?

    Bought from eBay because it was a) unusual/interesting & b) cheap … it was described as possibly being for 7.62 but seller wasn't sure & I don't recognise it.

    Here it is, 2nd from right, along with 7.92 Mauser, 7.62 NATO & .303 clips for comparison:

    There are no markings visible.

    I have tried 5.56x45mm, 7.62x39mm, 9mm Makarov & 9mm Parabellum rounds from my collection but none of those fit easily. I looks like the smaller rimmed cases should fit but the wire 'spring' inside the clip is too stiff to allow insertion … at least not without seriously scratching my cases; which I am unwilling to do!

    From photo below, you can see it would appear to take 10x 9mm sized cartridges:

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Maybe 7,63 x 25 for the C96 Mauser?

    Sorry, just seconds after Zwerge.

    Thanks zwerge & ziomanno! A bit of 'googling' of that cartridge generally comes up with (logically enough) a 'Mauser' style clip for the C96 (longer version of the K98 "Ladestreifen") ... is there a particular weapon / user / producer that uses this style? Can you point me to any photos etc?

    Sorry, I don’t... But for what I know there are only a couple of pistols having a 10 rounds internal magazine, check also the Roth Steyr M1907, in 8x19 mm

    I think that this charger is for the French MAT 49 SMG in 7.62x25 Tokarev,which was in use by the NVA in Vietnam after the French left,it was used with a separate mag loader on top of the mag. for the 20 round clip.See photo.
