Why argue? Remington tries to appease both factions...

magazine

EDIT: if you are in hollywood, then it is clips.


If you are a liberal then they are 10000 round magazine death cop killing black hating high powered ammunition clips.

Magazine = feeding device where rounds are totally inside the body of the magazine.

Clip = device where exposed rounds are inserted into a magazine.

Nope.

If it's an M1 Garand, they're clips. Everything else: magazines

Just call them "more thrust per squeeze bullets holders"

Clips are considered disposable.
magazines are reloadable.

That is wack! Maybe they will start calling guns 'lead markers'!!!

Magazines have followers that push the cartridges. Clips just hold the cartridges. I learned this the hard way at Army boot...when a drill sergeant heard some soldier refer to them as clips he smoked the crap out of us till it was instilled in our minds. He explained the difference laters...

I imagine they call them that so that when you do a search on their site, what you want will come up whether you searched for "clip" or "magazine".

Magazines!!!!!!!

clips is for Garands

it's not to feel superior, not at all, but it's like calling a truck a car. There is a huge diff and while it may annoy some people to be corrected, it's even more annoyng to hear people being ignorant.

Troy is right! Clips feed the magazine. Magazines feed the weapon.

The only exception would be a belt-fed weapon. Not only does it not have a clip, it lacks a magazine as well.

A magazine is a box or tube which contains a number of cartridges and has a spring to feed them with.

Clips are simple, flat pieces of metal that hold cartridges together.

If you really want to be technical, then that depends on what type of belt-fed gun you are refering too. A lot of new modern and even older belt-fed guns can take a magazine as well.

Would this clear it up a little??
