Well I can see that I will have to be more careful using the words "bananna" and "clips" in a post in the future.

Well I ended up getting a Butler creek steel lip and it works great.....much better then shoving the bananna in the slot.

Hey Northhike it is a common mistake, however, to further you education the following should make things a little clearer:
CLIP = a metal device that holds rounds of ammunition and is physically inserted into a weapon and upon the firing of the last round the round and clip are physically ejected from the weapon. An example of a clip is the M1 Garand clip that holds 8 rounds of ammunition, see picture #1.

MAGAZINE = a metal device that holds rounds of ammunition and is physically inserted into a weapon and upon the firing of the last round remains in the weapon until removed by the shooter. An example of a magazine is the AR-15 magazine that can hold 20, 30, 40 or more rounds of ammunition, see picture #2.

There is also a Stripper clip that is used to hold rounds and facilitates loading rounds into a magazine. An example of a stripper clip is what holds 556 rounds when removed from a military bandoleer or what holds the 7.62 X 39 rounds for a SKS. I’m to lazy to get up and go find one to take a picture of but if you want to see one let me know and I will.

Hope this clears up the common mistake people make on calling a magazine a clip, P.S. this is a personal itch that I have just got to scratch. I’ve been a firearms instructor for 28 years and this is the one thing that I just can’t let go.

Clips can also be used to load magazines. Not all magazines are metal.

Generally a magazine has a spring and a clip does not. A clip may be made of " spring steel" but that is not the same as "having" a spring.
Generally a magazine completely encloses the ammunition whereas a clip only holds the rim or a small amount of the base area of a case.

Banana Clip is a slang term that is considered passee. Coined probably by GI's referring to M-1 Carbine high capacity magazines that are curved "like a banana".

I am frightened that you have one of those clips. However if it matches your purse holster I would call it a success!

We have wives and significant others that survived the 80's fashion trends.

Hummm, let me see…

Are you saying that anyone who attempts to clarify a misnomer like the difference between a clip and a magazine is a, in your terms, "F'n know it all"? I would also be interested to know how you compare other people and their knowledge to my knowledge base. I would like to know how you arrived at the conclusion that they are "far more knowledgeable then" I. I thought I explained the differences clearly and reasonably and did not think I insulted anyone. Do you think you might have overreacted just a little bit?

Be nice kids. Banana clip! Hahahaha.

Friendly reminder: Educate yourself about the difference between a clip and a magazine. The face covered in egg could be your own.
