There are the original pouches they made

You can fit several clips of ammo per pouch. They strap on easily to a belt or, also onto the sling (if you get the original sling)

$1 apiece? hard to beat.

I have some of those but I dont use them becouse it takes to long to open and close they dont hold very many clips and belt space is a problem.

I got some good leather cleaner and softened up the straps. They work fine. They are very quiet compared to Velcro. I can fit a bunch in my outer carrier for my body armor. If you are getting ammo already loaded into the stripper clips, I find it helpful to remove them, clean the clips and ammo with a little CLP and then I smooth out with a spent case.

Here's a really good repro of the original Russian MN bandoleer.

I have 4 originals and they work great!

I have boxes full of the M1 Garand bandoliers laying around, I should see if they will hold the MN clips.

And the answer is . . . .. YES they fit perfectly. Two clips to each pouch. Thanks for the idea, I will have to fill a few up and mark them so I don't confuse them with the M1 ammo. My father in law told me that the M1 bandolier was designed so you could throw them to your buddy without leaving your position. They would twirl them like and ancient style sling. With a little practice you can get quite accurate and throw them for a pretty good distance.

Those are post war...

And FYI, no one in WW2 carried 7.62X54R on stripper clips, it's un reliable... Most just carried loose ammo in there pouches.

That's a pretty broad statement. Do you have a source for that info?

I use the original pouches that came with rifle when I bought it. I attached them to the sling so that they're always with the rifle.

I don't have any stripper clips though. I bought a spam can of ammo and in the can the rounds are wrapped in paper packets of 20 rounds. One packet fits well into the pouch. That's 40 rounds.

It's difficult for me to imagine a likely scenario were I would need more than 40 rounds for my 91/30.


From the Aim Surplus advertisement

I must have a different style pouch. I can get only 4 clips in each of mine (total of 8) Mine is an M-44 that was arsenal reconditioned in 1964 and the accessories were in very nice shape.

I use a purse it holds a lot of strippers clips and ammo. The cheapest way to get 7.62x54r stripper clips is at the gunshow the last ones that I bought cost 1 chocolate chip and black walnut cookie for each stripper clip.

I've got 4 of these on a leather belt. Can't get more than 2 stripper clips in each pouch.

That's why I like bandoleers
