Re: Stripper clips... I hope this isn't X rated!
The SKS clip pops out when the bolt carrier goes home. My #28 referred to the Mosin-Nagant bolt action rifle and carbine, and to the AVS 36, SVT 38 and SVT 40, all of which use the same ammunition, 7.62x54R, and the same clip. The SKS uses the 7.62x39 cartridge and a different clip. The AK47 magazine cannot be loaded while in the rifle.
