I saw an advertisement for the Butler Creek electric mag loader:
That wasn’t the ad I saw, but it shows the item nicely.
Let us appear at the vital facts. $350, holds 60 rounds, requires 45 seconds to fill a 30 round mag, and can be set to fill up to a 45 round mag. Can be plugged into the wall or run off batteries.
Aside from the higher expense, 45 seconds to load a mag is kinda slow. Butler Creek reps point out that this is not created to fill drums or 60 round mags.
This issue just appears like a poor selection to me. Now it had some thing like a massive hopper so you could just top rated off the hopper and fill up your mags, I believe it may possibly make sense. But at $350 for some thing slow, it appears to me that the more affordable options are superior.
I use a lula loader:
This is a image of the gen two from their web site. My old gen 1 has loaded at least 10,000 rounds and is operating wonderful. It is affordable, tiny, and also performs as an unloader.
There are all manner of distinct more affordable options like the $150 mag pump and the $130 Magula Variety Benchloader every of which will fill a 30 round magazine in below 30 seconds. They make take a small additional work than the Butler Creek providing, but they are also far more affordable and do not will need energy.
I do not believe Butler Creek’s ASAP loader is a terrible notion, but I believe they must make a v2 that has a substantially bigger hopper and the capability to fill bigger magazines. It does not appear to me that it is worth the expense compared to options out there.
