.303 MK IV stripper clip maker ID


#1

I have a 5 round .303 Mark IV stripper clip made from the usual parkerised steel. It is marked simply “MK4 AS (in rectangle)”. Who made it?


#2

Dews someone into clips such as gravelbelly or NZ L1A1 Collector have any ideas on this?

Hello falcon,

At present every charger collector that I know has the AS in a rectangle manufacturer as “unknown”. These chargers are very common so they must have been made by the million and we will discover one day who made them.

Okay, that explains why no-one knew. A wild guess…Accles and Shelvoke???

We already bounced that idea around, Accles and Shelvoke are still in business so we may have to ask them if they ever made chargers.
