Default Speed Loaders

Anyone used this type of speed loader? Are they any good?

Gonna have to agree with Spdjunkie on this one. I got this for a class at Frontsight and it saved my fingers due to all the reloading that I needed to do.

My step-dad has one of those HKSs for his Beretta 92. It will get the job done but it leaves a lot to be desired. It seems like it will break very soon as it's pretty flimsy. Never tried the UpLULA but looking at it and seeing everyone else's opinions I'd probably get that. Good luck.

Uplula I use it for all my semis. 9mm up to 45 it works great.

Yep! For Semi-auto magazines, Uplula is the way to go.

I have a couple of the HKS speed loaders for my revolver. It works OK.

I have one I bought for some "high-capacity" 9mm magazines. It works OK but not spectacularly so.

Another for the UpLULA. I use it on my sig .40, works flawlessly! Got it for $30ish plus tax at one of the fun *gun stores in my area.

+100000 on the Maglula/Uplula at Midwayusa or Amazon for about $30. It will work for 9mm, .40 and .45, its rock solid and fast. There is a 5.56 and a 7.62 version for rifle mags as well.

If you buy Uplula, you don't have to buy all the others.

+1... I've got one.
It works fine on the rounds that aren't a PITA to load by hand (the first 5 or 6).
7 through 10, I'm afraid I'm going to break the thing.

I bought it because I thought it might be better than the one that came with my XD.

Nope... the XD factory loader is pretty good.

Yeah. I am getting my PX4 next Wed and it comes with a factory speedloader. I'm trying to figure out if it's decent or if I should fork over $30 for an uplula.

I agree with Cokebottle on the XD loader- it works very well. As was mentioned a loader is essential when going to a class at Front Sight- lots of shooting reloading and topping off of magazines. It was not unusual to go to the line with 3-4 full 10 round magazines, have another 100 rounds in a cargo pocket with the loader, and after shooting have 50 rounds in your pocket and a couple of empty magazines.

That "speedloader" looks similar to the P.O.S. that comes with Glocks. Get the UpLULA. You won't regret it.

I have a PX4 and the Beretta loader is a POS. Buy the Uplula and be happy.
