    The clips aren't here nor there versus USGI (haven't tried them as kindling), but the guides are slick and can be used with loose rounds like a funnel, then just shove them in to the magazine.

    Grab them off gun show tables' junk piles for a few bucks every time I see them.

    I have a few that the Canadian Army gave me when we trained with them- still have 'em but never even tried them.

    Interesting the Embassy armory had both MP5K and UZI.

    Were they intended for concealed carry during diplomatic protection details?

    Used mostly by the Ambo's security detail. The State Dept (Diplomatic Security) detail had their own tools, but our Gunny was able to let us get our hands on them now and then.
