Um. Yes and no.
The M1 Garand (arguably one of the most widely used assault rifles ever made) uses an 8-round clip. The clip is inserted into the magazine, and the clip is ejected from the magazine when the last round is fired.
The fact that over six million M1 rifles were manufactured and used in three wars (WWII, Korea, Vietnam) by American troops probably contributed significantly to the use of the word "clip" when in most cases what is intended is the word "magazine".
