Note: there is a difference between a “clip” and a “magazine”, however, many use the two terms interchangeably as they both refer to different types of ammunition holders.
Modification of clips is uncommon, as clips cannot be opened up without force that runs the risk of breaking them.
Other times, Nerfers may combine clips together, such as combining a six dart clip with another six dart clip to make a makeshift twelve dart clip. In some clips, such as an eighteen dart clip, Nerfers may chisel out plastic on the left side so they can see darts loaded when they are right-handed. By drilling a hole into the retainer of the clip, and then putting a guide rod, the clip can load Stefans more properly.

- All Nerf-branded clip system clips feature one small divot on each of their feed lips. These attach to small nubs found on places such as the Longshot CS-6's clip storage or the Storage Stock to keep the clip from falling.
- Many modern clips feature a set of rubber paddings on their bottom corners. These were most likely added to prevent damage of the clip if it were dropped on a hard surface (or to prevent damage done to anything that the clip may drop on).
- Some 2011 Super Soaker blasters use a similar reloading system with an accessory called the water clip. It functions much like a regular clip, but holds water instead of darts.
- Most clips can fit at least one more dart than advertised as able to do so, but this makes them more prone to jamming.
- Although marketed under the name "clip", the Nerf clip system clips are technically magazines by definition. A clip is used to feed a magazine or revolving cylinder, while a magazine or a belt is used to load rounds into the chamber. Magazines typically have followers; a small, spring-loaded plate that advances rounds into the chamber.
- The Magstrike clip and the Battlescout clip are true clips, as they do not have a spring-assisted follower.
- Interestingly, the name "magazine" is given correctly to RIVAL magazines and Vortex magazines perhaps due to being newer lines.
