Clip Or Magazine
The Ml rifle is described as clip-fed, and the M14 as magazine-fed. I always thought these terms meant the same thing. What is the distinction?
Answer: The basic difference is that a magazine contains a spring-driven follower to feed cartridges and a clip does not. Magazines may be built into a rifle such as the box magazine in Mauser-type bolt actions, or it may be detachable such as the Ml carbine or M14 box magazines. Most semi-automatic pistols have detachable box magazines, commonly, but incorrectly, called clips.
Ml clip (I.) and M14 magazine. Clip can only hold cartridges, magazine has spring-driven follower to feed cartridges.
There is a wide variety of clips, used mostly to charge the magazines of military bolt-action rifles. The M14 rifle and the Ml carbine magazines both can be charged with clips. The Ml rifle clip is inserted into the action along with the cartridges but the follower mechanism is built into the rifle.—W.E.P.
