Best SKS stripper clips?

Hi,

I've acquired a Norinco type 56 rifle from a member and I'm looking to buy some stripper clips as this is my first clip-fed rifle. For you SKS owners out there: what's good and what's not?

Thanks!

If you make it out to the east side of Gresham I have a few I can give you if you want some. I believe these were off surplus Chinese ammo and work quite well I think.

Try and find some older military clips. Most of the ones sold by the vendors seem to be current production. They older ones for whatever reason work fantastic. The newer gloss blued commercial ones not so much. I'm not sure what the difference is [steel or finish type, etc] Watch around the gun show tables and you can find them fairly cheap.

The clips that are on the russian surplus ammo work well

The Yugo clips that M67 comes on have worked great for me. It's worth it to buy a few boxes of the ammo (if you can find it) just for the stripper clips.

I ordered 20 off ebay. Well... some are really tight but by running an empty steel casing through a few times I solved that issue. I have heared that old surplus ones are best.
