History Of The Various Types Of Magazines

The Firearms History, Technology & Development Blog has been running a series on the various types of magazines ranging from tubular magazines to pan magazines. Most of us are familiar with the box magazine but few of us would know that a Krag-Jorgensen rifle's magazine is termed a "capsule magazine."

The whole series is well worth a read especially if you are interested in the development of firearms technology over time.
