I need some help from those of you who specialize in stripper clips and chargers!
In an earlier post I asked about “long” Danish made .30-06 ammunition, because most of the U.S. made M-1917 rifles that came from there have a notch in the receiver ring above the chamber. The theory was that this was done to allow “long” ammunition to be clip-loaded.
Further research has turned up the theory that these rifles came to Denmark via Norway, and the “notch” was milled by the Norwegians. Apparently this was done because the Norwegians used “a different clip loading system” which required this modification to the rifles.
So, is there some unique, Norwegian 5 round clip or charger for .30-06 ammunition intended to be used in the M-1917 rifle?
