Does anyone know where I can find a few original vintage clips for my 1915 Amberg Gew 98?
Here are a few I had on the pc; note the early one? Similar to the Turks but this is German (note the very small "DM" center)These are Turk jobs, not Imperial German stripper clips/chargers.. the earliest ones were much as these are, though not brass, the ones from the Great War were very much like the ones from the nazi era but only marked differently.
Kent's book on ammunition goes into the markings well enough and I would do you a few pics however they changed the format here but I will try and pull a few for you and do my own images tomorrow.
Since I started my website on these chargers I have found the marked ones to be quite elusive, at least certain years, imperial era ones are hardest to find but all can be found with diligence. (good news if you come across them at gunshows they often can be had for $1 or less, bad news is they are not terribly commonly seen "marked")
I collect these and will trade for others I need.
Here are some pics of a German WWI clip with still 3 rounds in it. The clip is made of brass. You can find these things quite common here. I found it last spring on an acre. (Ypres-Belgium where there was a lot of fighting back in 1914-1918)
