    Folks, I need a hookup. Does anyone local inNOVA have any or know where I can locally purchase enblock clips for my Garand? I need at least a dozen, more if possible. I had hoped to bring my Garand to go shooting with my dad this weekend, but have only 1 clip that came with the Garand.

    When I ordered my CMP rifles, I ordered a case (780 rds) of Greek milsurp .30-06 in clips and bandoleers. CMP sent me the wrong case, 480 rds in boxes, but no clips. I told them I would pay for the case I received, but still needed the clipped case of ammoI already paid for. More ammo is always better, and they were really receptive and offered to sell it to me free of shipping charges. Problem is that the original case isn't here yet (there was a screw-up with the shipping) and probably won't get here before Friday, so I need enbloc clips!

    Any help is most appreciated!

    Pics of clips:

    Never heard of 'em. But I've got a couple hickory ramrods with brass ferrules if you ever want to shoot a real rifle.

    Got a couple hand-made flints, too, if you're ever having trouble with those new-fangled primers.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You kids...I wondered when you would ask for these.

    Reloading the one you have will allow the barrel to cool between volleys, extend the life of your rifle, and give you an appreciation for the hard working people at the munitions factory. So I will not cough any up. Beside, if I give them to you how would I feel my own pet Garand?

    If you had bought a Johnson Rifle you would only need standard "strippers" you use for your '03.

    But you might try, Potomac arms in alexandria, or Numeric arms express mail order. Also there is a gun shop out near where we had lunch after the recent show (the name escapes me at the moment). They do a lot of rebuilds and "smithing" on military rifles and they might have some in stock.

    Regards

    Potomac Arms would be great if they weren't out of business. Best bet would be Dominion Arms out on Rt 28.

    Thanks, Hawk! (I think...lol) Grandma used to work in Picatinny Arsenal in WWII doing just that!

    Shooting and reloading one enbloc at a time......real funny! lol....

    Thanks for the tip on Potomac Arms. They're not too far from work. I'll call them in the AM and maybe take a ride at lunch tomorrow.

    (with a note of shock in his voice he asks) I quit shopping there after they elected Moran the second time. When did they close?

    No, I figured if the people in Alexandria, wanted that kind of representation, they didn't have anything I needed in the whole dam place. When I commute I go South now, so it is a real trip for me to get over there now.

    Thanks Andy. I e-mailed CMP and told them I was disappointed they screwed up the original order and now this second "fix" too.

    I'm checking Midway now. Maybe alocal Army Navy store?

    One of my relatives on momma's side was Col. Robert Forrest Jackson Beauregard from Alabama. He was a supply officer for the South. He stashed away a little bit atthe end of the Wa'a. We been usin' it evah since.

    i'd try calling around some surplus places. i know ranger surplus in tysons carries some magazines (a very limited assortment) and some shoulder harness concealed carry holsters. might be worth a phone call.

    the sunny's in manassas (near dick's sporting goods) was going out of business last time i drove by there, so i wouldn't bother trying to get in touch with them.

    the gun shop in fairfax circle is out of business now. you know, the place that was really close to the high school. AA guns or AAA guns. they used to have lots of milsurp guns, but they've been gone for a good year or so now.

    last time i was at blue ridge arsenal i found one of those clips in my shooting lane. i picked it up and someone had written BAD on the side of it with a marker. i threw it away

    Sounds like REAL Customer Service, though. Hope all goes well. Let us know, Bob.

    Well, there was a paperwork error, so the CMP ammo won't be here until Monday and I still haven't found any clips. Maybe in an Army Navy store up in NJ. Leaving after work, so no time to shop. We'll still have fun....loading that one poor lonely clip. My thumb will be killing me! Oh well.... lol...
