Where do you find the clip that holds each bullet to prevent double feed to next round for a Stevens model 87p?

All magazines or clips have a "lip" at the top that retains the next round up in the magazine until the closing bolt of the weapon picks it up and shoves it into the chamber. If a particular magazine spits out more than one round at a time, it probably has a bent or damaged lip. Carefully bending the lip back into place or getting a new magazine should fix the problem. I think what you are refering to is a "tube magazine" which would be correct for the 87p.The "clip" the inquirer was talking about is a small C or U shaped spring which slips in place at the end of the tube itself just where it meets with the lifter or carrier mechanism.This spring grabs the round which is pushed to the front of the tube by spring pressure and holds it when the round ahead of it is pushed free of the tube and into the carrier mechanism and onto the lifter itself when the bolt is fully to the rear the lifter spring pushes the lifter up with the cartridge into alignment with the chamber.without the spring ,or, if it is worn out the cartrige in the tube would have its nose pushed into the path of the lifter and would jam the rifle.The spring is available from Numrich Arms or Jack First or in parts lots on E-Bay.Shootrj2003

The correct term is cartridge, not bullet- and the answer will depend on WHICH .40 caliber pistol.

First, the bullet is probably not the word you are looking for. You probably mean cartridges. The bullet is just the very end of the cartridge. You also probably mean magazine, not clip. An 18 cartridge magazine holds 18 cartridges.

The typical AK-47 fires a 7.62x39mm round. The 7.62mm refers to the bullet's diameter, which is basically .30 caliber. the 39mm refers to the length of the brass case which holds the bullet.

Pistol, revolver, rifle, gun. If you mean the device which holds rounds of ammunition, that would be a magazine. If you mean the parts of a firearms "round" you have 4 parts. Primer,casing,powder,bullet.

The bullet is the lead, or copper coated lead, slug that leaves the barrel and (sometimes) hits the target. The cartridge is the casing (usually brass) which holds the powder, and the bullet, assembled together into one complete round of ammunition. Cartridge goes into chamber of firearm, is detonated by the firing pin, and the powder burns very fast, sending the bullet out of the barrel. PLEASE be careful with firearms and use them responsibly.

You have to remove the barrel. Take the stock off and you will see the nut that holds a "U" clip in place. The clipp holds the barrell. Remove clip, slide barrel out, then the bolt will also slide out.
