I found these at AIM surplus and grabbed a few tins. I'll include a lot of pics. The crate I got was packaged (from what I understand) in 1947. Kind of a cool history piece at the same time. In one tin you get 300 rounds of corrosive ammo and 60 stripper clips. I have been looking for strippers for these guns for a while now and they range anywhere from $1-$3 a strip. At this price you could throw away the ammo and still be money ahead. I got 2 tins shipped for 162.00.
I have not shot the ammo yet but the strippers work 100x better than the new production ones. The first time I loaded one up the clip shot out of the holder and all the rounds went in flawlessly. I'm not affiliated with AIM in any way but I just thought I'd let you guys know.
