Sarco M14 Stripper Clips

I recently ordered a few (50) M14 stripper clips from SARCO for what I thought was a decent price.

I have tried to search for reviews on this item but haven't found any. Has anyone used them and if so, what was your experiences ?

Do you have a link to your stripper clips ?

Some are rather poor, while others are GTG.

Sorry for the extremely delayed response, but I was awaiting a second order of stripper clips to post a conclusive review to see if what I got was the norm or an abnormality.

The 50 clips I received in my original order were excellent. The Parkerizing was a little oxidized, I sprayed each one with Barricade and cleaned them all up. They appeared brand new and were USGI; they had an "A" stamped on each one.

What I claim by "abnormality" is there was also 5 spoons included in the bag of 50 clips. The product description made no mention of this, the pricing certainly did not coincide with what I got; 10 clips and 1 spoon for $5.95 ? I ordered 50 clips, so I also got 5 spoons. The spoon add may have been a mistake. Fulton charges 6 bucks for just ONE spoon. Noticed 3 of the 5 spoons looked brand new, 2 had rust spots which cleaned up nicely using Barricade and a nylon cleaning brush.

I wouldn't want to suggest everyone jump on what I received because it may not be the norm. Even without the spoons, they had the best price I've found, 59 cents per clip. Everywhere else I looked they were just shy of 2 bucks a spoon.

My second order, while delayed nearly 3 weeks for some reason, was the same as the first. I ordered 50 more clips and in this bag I had 4, not 5 spoons. They all cleaned up nicely and rounds stayed in with no issue.

Again, I can't say the spoon add is the norm, just what I got. The price cannot be beat for brand new clips. I'm extremely satisfied.

Their website shows $5.95 for M14 stripper clips but no mention of how many you get for $5.95.

States they have more.

They also show a set of 10 for $9.95 with the mag charger guide or spoon as some call it.

But those are out of stock.

You may have gotten a decent deal by mistake, I ain't telling....

There have been quit a few of the stripper clips and the guides showing up in the PX recently.

Sometimes you have to look back a few days in the PX to find things, items roll off the new posts forum by some mystical schedule.

Thanks from Wasted ammo

If you click on the "more info" tag, it says "10 clips, New".

I agree I thought I may be getting a deal by mistake; but the second order was the same as the first. Maybe the same employee mistakenly filled my order twice....
