    Interestingly, the ORIGINAL Army tech manual for the 1911 called them "clips".

    Take Wikipedia with a grain of salt. As good as they are, they are not always 100% correct. Wikipedia is given the modern, contemporary definition. A classic example of this is Wikipedia's definition of a carbine versus a rifle. They say a carbine is a shorter, lighter rifle. Yet, Winchester made rifles that were shorter and lighter than some of their carbines, and advertised them as rifles.
