View Full Version : Still searching for stripper clips...

February 14, 2000, 10:04 PM
Back on Jan. 1st, I asked for help in finding some stripper clips for a 7.63 Mauser Broomhandle pistol. John suggested that I contact Sarco. I did; but they no longer had any. I've also called International Military Antiques, Springfield Sporters, and Gun Parts Corp. No luck, so far.

I've been reading Shotgun News, as well.
Still nothing.

I've even gone to a couple of gun shows, one local, the other 200 miles away.
Nope, still nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas?
All I need is one or two, as I don't plan on shooting the pistol much. It's more of a 'show and tell' piece.

Does anyone have a couple that they could spare? I'd definitely make it worth your while.

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the lead.
Maybe I'll have better luck there.
I never imagined that they would be so hard to find.

when you go to a gun show... look for ammo marked as 7.62x25 and the box contains 40rds each.... nine times out of ten .... it will be strippered..... the cans I have seen are marked as ".30 broomhandle"... it is the same stuff....

try that... it is cheaper than the strippers by themselves...

try J&G Sales @ 20-45-9650 at $5.50 per box of 40

Thanks, I appreciate the info.
There's a gun shop here in town that should be able to help me. If not, I'll contact J&G Sales.
I've been wanting to buy a CZ-52 pistol; now I've got an excuse... :)
