Here’s something I had forgotten to post, an unmatched but similar pair of ammunition pouches for the Mauser K98k service rifle. Note the difference in the rear loop as well as the metal internal stiffener.

This round was used specially by the Hungarians in their Steyr M95 infantry carbines such as this one here. This cartridge has a much more prominent rim on it than the Austrian round so if you find that your ammo is dropping out of the clips check that you may have confused the two, I did!
I have a Canadian made Enfield No4 MkI* rifle here. These are the stripper clips and ammunition for this rifle. Additionally you can see a battle pack of 48 rounds produced by the Dominion Industries Company, part of Canadian Industries Ltd. The ammunition in the battlepack is all VIIz ball, made in 1943. The clips show both brass rounds and steel, made in 1944 and 1945 by the same company.
Another small addition to my ammunition stock. These are stripper clips in Carcano 6.5×52 intended for the Carcano M91/41 service rifle as well as the Carcano M38 and other small arms. These fit this rifle here. Interesting side note, Lee Harvey Oswald put two of these into JFK in November 1963.
A modest little item here, this is a stripper clip for the 7.92×33 “Kurz” cartridge used in the MP-43/44 assault rifle. Really tough to find this ammo now and especially in the clip. Thanks Andrew!
A pretty simple item here, a clip of Arisaka 7.7mm rifle ammunition. This was used in the Arisaka Type-99 rifle here. Since I just obtained one of these rifles I was happy to get hold of some representative ammo for it.
