Thanks for the info guys,
This is definitely a 7.62mm NATO stripper clip. From the research I had done via the internet and through books it was all pointing me to the 10 inside the double circles as being Bulgarian. I just thought it was a little strange for them to be making 7.62NATO in 1965.
But still it’s continuing to point at them. If it’s confirmed as Bulgarian I guess I better start a new page. When did Bulgaria start making 7.62NATO?
Does anyone now if they produced stripper clipped ammo in Bandoliers or cardboard boxes?
The details of this clip are held on this page http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~kevin_a/India.html
I do know of some serious Mauser clip collectors and there are 100’s of examples out there ranging from different markings and slightly different designs. In the past I have tried to nudge others into producing websites about other stripper clips and links so we can all learn more about them, but it’s a slow and daunting process for some of them. The info is out there, it’s just a matter of getting to it.
I’ll post some other makers markings that I’m unsure off and we can continue to play “Name that Maker”
