Blasphemy. I think you need to throw yourself against a wall, drive to store and buy yourself a brain.

as long as it works, and you're not hitting the clip against anything, you should be fine. Duct tape is pretty strong.

I disagree. Duct tape cannot provide enough stability to keep the two halves lined up.

since i just used duct tape, is it still dureable enough?

No, duct tape is useless for joints that need to be mechanically stable. Use a solvent adhesive, Fishin' Glue, or super glue to join the two halves after cutting them square and clean. If you don't have a tablesaw, bandsaw, or box mitre saw then you shouldn't attempt to combine magazines.

The pushbar does get stuck, but all i do is just pinch the sides and it gets past, and i cut the spring so it holds 15 darts.

will hot glue, and dust tape work, i dont have any of that fishing glue crap or anything like that.

I added like 5 layers of tape, slightly off topic, but do the replacement clips come with darts or do I have to use ultra stefans?

I use the saw on a gerber to cut it and the knife to even it, and the file to smooth it out, and I do not have any spare clips, that was a stupid decsision, those were my only clips, but it works.

Available damned near everywhere for a dollar or less under various brands but they're all based on cyanoacrylite.

Actually, I would suggest plastic cement, available in hobby shops and hardware stores, for binding together the magazines. It is extremely durable, just don't inhale it because it contains methylethylketone (MEK).

And don't use it indoors. That's stuff is NASTY. It works, but I don't recommend it to anybody because it's far more toxic than the alternative (IPS Weld-On #3 or #4).

Actually its pretty easy to make the clip with a dremel. You gust need to use some external supports to connect them together instead of connecting them directly.
