Hunting Gun Ammunition Magazines

Hunting gun ammunition magazines manufactured by Smith and Wesson, Glock, Ruger, and Sig Sauer are detachable or internal fixed cartridges which hold four, seven, or 10 rounds of bullets. Gun magazines load bullets into the firing chamber of rifles or handguns through a spring-loaded mechanism. Smaller detachable four-round magazines for big game hunting are referred to as clips.

How do Smith and Wesson ammunition magazines work?

Smith and Wesson (S & W) firearm barrels are self-cleaning Zytel polymer reinforced stainless steel with a Browning-type locking system for safety. The trigger engages the firing pin lifting the safety plunger and engaging the sear in the S & W firearm. Though this tensioned striker mechanism is similar to Glock handgun mechanisms, S & W pistols set the striker for the next shot automatically and require less pressure or force to pull the trigger. S & W handgun magazines drop from their handguns when the magazine release is pressed.
