Swiss Stripper Clips?

I’m getting in a selection of Swiss straight-pull rifles to do some shooting and video work with, and to my surprise it looks like everybody is sold out of them (Numrich, Sarco, Liberty Tree, etc). Only Northridge has them in stock, and they want $20 each (gak!). If anyone has a few they would be interested in selling for $5 each (plus shipping), please let me know! I’m looking for 5-10 of them.



  1. I see them at the Massachusetts gun shows sometimes – they haven’t banned them yet – Don’t have a Swiss myself but if I see those clips again will let you know…If you ever see a 577 revolver please hit me back,my search goes on.

  2. Do a search for “chargers”. You will find more…They aren’t referred to as stripper clips for Swiss rifles. I was quickly told that when I got into them. PM user Guisan at Gunboards or the Swiss Rifles forum for some.

  3. Hi, Ian :

    Please check the following :

    1. — The seller frankly states that this batch of six (6) chargers is in rough condition, and that he is selling them as a project. The current bid ( at time of writing ) is $5.99 with 1 hour and 12 minutes PST to go.

    2. — Key in “Schmidt-Rubin Chargers” or “K-31 Chargers” and a listing for the chargers in S.W. Jacksonville, South Carolina should come up. The seller says that he has many of these chargers and he is asking $10 for each. Judging from the photographs, they appear to be in decent condition.

    Hope this helps and best of luck !

  4. There’s no way every website could be out of-
    Well damn they really are all out.
    My recommendation would be putting up a wanted add on armslist, I betcha there are a few folks out there who have a couple of them just lying around.
    Good luck to you.

  5. Hi, Ian :

    I had posted earlier with a couple of leads for you, but I’m not sure if they went through due to FW’s screening rules. Anyway, to reiterate, please try and E-bay. The former seller says that he has several Swiss 7.5mm chargers at $10.00 apiece for the Schmidt-Rubin M1896/11 and K-31 rifles. Based on the photographs posted, they appear to be in decent condition. The latter seller has a batch of three ( 3 ) chargers in good condition. At the time of writing, there are 2 hrs. and 5 mins. per PST left on the bid, which stands at $45.00.

    Hope this helps a bit, and best of luck!

    • Hi, Ian :

      To reiterate, the listing stays the same, but it appears that the original E-Bay listing for six chargers is gone, and that another listing for three chargers ( as mentioned in my second commentary ) is current.


  6. Ian,
    I have 4 or 5 of the chargers that I will be happy to let you borrow. I have a K31 that I use them with. If you will pay postage both ways, I’ll send them to you.

  7. The Swiss call the chargers “Lader” (loader) and those for regular cartridges are of brown color, in Swiss terminology “Lader braun”.
