1903 Stripper Clips

All,

Is there a source for stripper clips for the 03?

I recently purchased some advertised as "6.5 swedish mauser" 5 round stripper clips. The seem to work fine in mine (I don't shoot it much). I gave half of them to a buddy who shoots his 03A3 as frequently as possible (even uses it in the local high power monthly matches) and he reports they are the slickest, best working stripper clips he's ever used. You can get them at gunshows sometimes or off ebay.

(Note I didn't say Swedish.)

Ripcord,

Champions Choice in TN has some very high quality ones. By the pair I think.

I have some lesser quality ones I could send you. Maybe a 1/2 dozen. How many and how good were you looking for?

I ordered 20 of them off ebay for $16 (that was the clips and S&H).

I just checked ebay and there are none of those for sale right now. Hmmm. Maybe I've suggested this to too may people?

Cheaper Than Dirt has USGI M-14 clips. I don't believe there's much difference.

I don't believe the M14 stripper clips will work. The 03 (and the swedish mauser) clips have 2 small "bumps" on each side of the clip that "locates" them correctly in the guide in the reciever (so they can go in either way). The M14 clips only have one bump on each side and it does not fit correctly into the guide on my 03A3. Try one and you'll see.

1/2 dozen would be fine. I just need some to feed my new 03A3.
