In the closing years of World War II, the Soviet Union decided to end production of the Mosin-Nagant rifle in favor of a new service rifle that was chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge. Their selection? None other than the Samozaryadnyj Karabin sistemy Simonova, or “self-loading carbine system by Simonov,” which was named for its designed Sergei Gavrilovich Simonov and is more commonly known as the SKS.
One of the hallmarks of the SKS is its internal magazine. Because the SKS does not benefit from a detachable box magazine, the only reliable way to hastily reload the firearm is through the use of a 10-round stripper clip. And speaking of 10-round stripper clips for the SKS, have you seen our new SKS stripper clips?
Sure, you could spend time loading cartridge after cartridge into the internal magazine characteristic of the SKS. Or, you could pick up a package of our SKS stripper clips and cut your loading times by over 50 percent. With each package, you get 20 high-quality SKS stripper clips – each of which holds 10 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition. That means each package offers the potential for quickly loading 200 rounds into your SKS. And best of all, our SKS stripper clips are fully compatible with high-capacity AK-47 magazines.
