Yeah, but 7.62 x 39 Russian is a lousy cartridge. THESE are real US-made (I think) stripper clips that hold five rounds of good ol' American .30-06 Springfield ammo!

Besides, I really do not desire things that hold enough ammunition to shoot down the side of a mountain (can't afford that much ammunition anyway). These will work with my WW One-vintage rifle, hold all the bullets that I want to load anyway, when I go to the rifle range and shoot paper targets.

(A side point: I got these at a local gun show, where I also joined the local buckskinners' group, which was the reason I went the show in the first place. Anyway, when I was there I learned that the old US Rifle, caliber .30, Model of 1917 I have is worth $500 and up -- and add 10% because Winchester made it.)

For those who are concerned about my owning firearms: they are kept locked up, unloaded, with trigger locks on, in a safe place. The ammunition is locked up in a small box and kept seperately from the guns. I have been shooting for 47 years now, have taken numerous safety classes, haven't shot anyone that I know about, have never had a "gun accident" (there aren't any such things), and shoot on a range -- for accuracy and control, since I'm more Olympics than Rambo.

Just wanted you to know.
