The Top 7 Magazine Loaders Reviewed
One of the more time consuming – and sometimes painful – aspects of shooting a semi-auto pistol or rifle is repeatedly loading bullets into the magazines. When you shoot multiple rounds the magazine spring does all the work of pushing the bullets up into the chamber, but before it can you have to do all the work of pushing them down into the mag.
Filling a box or two worth of rounds into a magazine by hand can leave your hands sore and cramped. And the more your hands hurt the slower the loading goes, quickly sucking all the joy out of an enjoyable time at the range.
That is where the magazine loader comes in. A magazine loader is a simple device that presses the magazine spring for you, and allows you to easily add rounds with minimal effort and without discomfort.
If you are in a hurry, our pick for the best magazine loader is the Maglula Ltd. UpLULA Universal Pistol Magazine Loader.
