SIAMESE T45 Charger clips...designs required


#1

Just lately on Gunboards several collectors posted a series of photos of “Clipped” ammo of the Mannlicher
Designs as well as others of particular interest, such as the T45/ T66 Clip for the Siamese Mauser Rifles.

The brass clips are made to the Japanese Arisaka pattern, but wider and longer to accommodate the .565" Rim and increased diameter of the cases…resulting in a longer clip to accommodate 5 rounds.

Does anyone have the designs of the clips ( Kynoch also made the ammo in the 1930s and 50s) or a good condition spare clip for " reverse engineering"…
