Damn Rusty that would be simple math and over a $1,000 bucks a case. Try 209 x 500.

The Garand uses an "N" Block clip. Don't know of Mauser ever using an "N"Block. Problem with the "N" Block it could not be topped off in battle. They considered the .276 Pederson Ctg. There were some rifles chambered in .276 including some Mosin Nagants.

The ARs use the Stoner System. The trigger group and safety of the Stoner System differs from the Garand Rifle.

Even the bayonets are sweet...
I wish I had one... Those bolts are the smoothest, and I like how they reload, you dont even have to open the bolt...

If im not mistaken, It was the 1903 that "stole" the Mauser clip design. Our Krags were no match for the Mauser, it could be reloaded quicker than our Krag. So we made our own "Mauser" the 1903, Pretty much a combination of a Mauser and Krag, we kept the Mag cut-off and bolt design, but the rest was pretty much Mauser... The US even had to pay Mauser for the design of the '03..

The Garand uses "EN-Bloc" clips, originally held ten rounds of the Peterson cartridge, but eventually became 8 rds of .30-06..

The Garand safety is in the trigger guard.. Isnt the AK on the side of the receiver? Ive only shot a couple of AR's and I think everything is in weird spots.. I dont like them at all...

I know that but they are very similar.

Yeah actually Germany got the u.s with the 03 in the clips. The bolt, and some action components looked very similar, but the clips were virtually identical.

The 98 Mauser and the 1903 Spfld. used stripper clips. Stripper clips were used to charge fixed box magazines. Once the magazine was loaded the Stripper was disgarded.The clips were not magazines and did not feed rounds to the chamber. The "Strippers" were very common on many rifles using the bridged recievers from the late 19th century. These guns used box magazines to feed the ammo, not clips.

Look you can sit here and nit pick about how 278 is different than 280 and clips are not magazines,but I ask you, please cut me some slack.

Rusty it was the .276 Pederson Ctg. You can post what ever you like? I have the same right. I have been shooting Military for well, a very long time. If we have different back grounds concerning Milsurp we will have different post.
