So I've got a King Arms Blaser R93, and I love it to death (Besides that stupid "Made In China" Logo they stamped into it.). And I love the 50 round clip, because I hardly ever have to reload in skirmishes. Problem is... In bigger battles, if I run out of ammo, I'm basically dead. Reloading makes too much noise, and takes a tad too long to avoid enemy fire.
Back on topic, I've looked everywhere for an extra clip, but it seems like I'm the only person in the world who seems to care, because there's NOTHING about extra clips, anywhere. I looked at clips for other guns, but they don't seem like they could fit, and if they could, they don't have the grip/handle thing like on the original clip to pull it out of the gun (Without it, the clip is in too deep to pull out easily, because of how the gun is built). So could somebody please direct me to a good place to get a clip for this thing?

I'm not surprised that you couldn't find anything. It helps to understand what you're searching for. First thing's first: a clip is something that holds sheets of paper together; a magazine is what holds your ammunition. When you search for the right thing, it's actually really easy to find. Evike and Redwolf both have them in stock, and King Arms lists it in their products.

I'm not aware of any clips in airsoft, but they are a real thing in real steel. Just not the way most people use the term. Most people (not any informed people, like us on MiA, ) incorrectly use it when actually referring to a magazine, like you just pointed out. A clip is used to hold ammunition that is then feed into a magazine, usually one that is not removable from the gun. It's used to quickly shove the ammunition into the mag. I'm sure you knew this already, Guns, but I figured I would throw that out there for Renfer.
I would love to see an airsoft stripper clip. I would hate to use it, but I'd like to see someone make it.
If you think about it, just about any speed-loader is KIND of a stripper clip. It's not a clip, but it's performing the same function as one. I kind of want to put one on my rig so whenever somebody says "clip" instead of "mag" I can throw it at them and simply shout "THE DIFFERENCE, LEARN IT."
