The boss and I were just talking and the question came up about which firearms use clips. Naturally the M1 Garand is first on the list and we thought MAYBE the broomhandle Mauser. Does anyone know? I dont mean strippers, but clips that actually go in with the cartridges.

S&W makes a revolver w/ half-moon clips which hold 45acp rounds. There are other revolvers that have full 6 round clips and I'm not sure of all of them.

Italian Carcano bolt-guns use a clip that drops out the bottom of the magazine after the last round. I think that has to do with the design's great success!

The Jap Nambu Type 3 MG (I think) used a feed strip. (Not a clip per se, but not a stripper and not a box, either.)

Styer made a straight pull bolt action called the M96 that used an en-bloc clip. Early 1900's vintage and it fired a 8X56R round.
Have one in the collector case, quite an interesting little rifle.

The German Model 1888 Commission Rifle also used an en bloc clip.

The Japanese Nambu Type 11 Machinegun had a hopper feed system where up to six 5-round clips of ammo could be fed. These were the same clips used as stripper clips in their rifles.
