Hi All,

Anyone out there know where I can pick up mag clips for GEW 88 or 6.5 Carcano? Can you cycle and feed consistantly without them? Merry Christmas, PAX

Don't try to feed the Carcano without a clip unless you fit the shell under the extractor first. The extractor won't go over the case rim without damage.

As far as clips go, search the usual places online. You don't need that many...

How many Carcano clips do you want? I have some with 7.35 ammo still in them. Of course, the 7.35 isn't for sale. I need it for my rifle but, I can part with some clips. Just come up with what you think is a fair price, the number you want and PM me your offer. I'm too lazy to look up going price right now. So, look it up and make an offer a little less than what you can find them for.

I'm puzzled by professional collectors (Liberty Tree) who don't know the difference between "stripper clips" and "en-bloc clips."

Where does the M1 Garand picture come into play here? (en-bloc)

Actually the Carcano uses an en-bloc clip same as a Garand....

So, the Carcano has what is also called an en-bloc clip? I didn't know that. Interesting, thanks.

Numrich gun parts should have reproduction clips for the Gew 88s.

Liberty has Carcano new $30 ea. The ones I got through Survivors were $4 ea and I got the 10 extra the rebel fella had. Numrich had GEW 88s for $8.50 ea, I got 3, one for each of mine. My friend made up some light 8MM loads for them and Privi 6.5 is inbound but hung up with my 7.62X39 order. PAX

liberty tree has them, their prices on the carcano clips are not bad actually, i've also bought some on ebay when the price is right. shop around and you'll do fine. gun show prices are usually ridiculous so i wouldn't look there.
