Polymer K31 Charger Clips

    If you have a Swiss K 31 rifle, especially if you bought it recently, you have probably noticed that it’s difficult to find charger clips for it.The original Swiss clips are wax coated cardboard and were intended to be disposable. They used to be easily available with some surplus ammo, but the supply has dried up almost entirely in recent years.

    I was very happy to discover that Northridge Inc is introducing new production polymer clips to the market. They should be ready for sale around March, and anticipated price is $13 each or two for $20. This is still awfully close to the price of surplus Swiss clips, but these should at least be readily available. Good news for those of us who love shooting The K31 and older Schmidt-Rubin rifles!
