Clips

Cartridges for the 5.56mm M16 rifle are assembled in 10-round clips. The clip (fig. 18-1) consists of a channel-shaped body containing a spring with narrow tabs at each end. After the clip is filled, the tabs are bent at right angles to the extrator rims of the end cartridges to hold them securely in the clip (NSN 1305-000524377).
