I like using the term clip for all my handguns. Why? Two reasons...
1. Because that's the way I was taught
2. It always seems to piss off the anally retentive definition Nazi who insists that people use HIS description over any other. Just call me a rebel.
SARCASM MODE ON:
I prefer to be a revolutionary or a rebel; not a "patriot." However, as we all know, if you call a magazine a clip, the bullet will not know which way it is supposed to go and the pointy end will not come out of the end of the barrel because it is too embarrassed about its owner.

Pierre - roger that. Use of correct terminology is essential to good training. I doubt any US Marine DI has ever called a pistol "magazine" a "clip." As to the movies, Hollywood will use any term that improves audience understanding. Even today, a "throw me a magazine" line in a movie would likely cause some viewers to wonder why reading material would be so important in the middle of a fire fight.

I just noticed this. Blue Train is almost correct that Lewis pans do not have springs -- at least not for feeding cartridges. There is, however, a spring on the hub powering the latch that secures the pan to the gun. For feeding cartridges, the necessary springs --mostly flat leaf-type or coiled clock-type-- are tucked away inside the gun.

I just imagined that everyone was dying to know...
