Clips

Cartridges for the 7.62mm M14 rifles are assembled in 5-round clips (fig. 18-3). All cartridges are packed in bandoleers with separate magazine fillers. The clip, which consists of a channel-shaped body containing a spring, facilitates loading of magazines. Loaded clips are fitted into the top of the rifle receiver and the cartridges are pressed into the magazine assembly. A magazine fillet; which adapts clips to the magazine, allows individual magazines to be loaded with clipped ammunition. The clip is 2.36 inches long. The 7.62mm ammunition and clip are shown with the M2 bandoleer in figure 18-4 and with the M4 bandoleer in figure 18-5. The M4 bandoleer is for belted ammunition for machine guns (NSN 1305-00-914-7912).
