Helical Magazines


Reddit user Oelund has put together a nice imgur album explaining how Helical Magazines work for firearms.  It’s nice, it goes with the How a 1911 works.  If you read through the whole imgur album you’ll see the basics of how the magazine was extended, then slanted, then turned onto itself, but it still follows the same basic principle, a spring pushes a column of bullets into the chamber.
