Hey I was thinking of getting a Uplula magazine loader for my 40 cal pistol magazines. What have been your guys experiences with this loader good or bad. I tried a different brand that just seemed cheap and didn't really work that great. I saw a review of the one I'm talking about on here on
youtube but I haven't actually tried it. Have any of you tried it? Give me the good and the bad before I spend thirty dollars.

The first loader i tried for my MP 9's was an HKS; cheap enough and worked ok but really for one mag size. As i added other MP models in single and double stack finally broke down and got an Uplula. Works great regardless of what mag i am loading. I would say it was well worth what I paid but as i got it for Christmas guess it was worth what Mrs Santa paid lol.
I think the Wifey actually got it at Walmart for me, you may want to shop around as i have seen it down in the $20's. And again i would recommend it.

Hard to find any bad really. I've had one for years, use it with 9mm, .40, and .45, works as advertised.

I agree.

I have had one for over a year and it works great.

Threw the cheap one in the trash as it was a waste of money.

The uplula is more expensive but worth the money.

I should have added, when buying this loader, grab a couple extra boxes of ammo as well. As it works so slick and quick at the range, you'll possibly find you are running thru more rounds than planned for lol

Fantastic product! The Glock came with a re-loading 'thingie', but that's a piece of junk compared to the UpLULA. Well constructed and fairly strong. It will probably never break. One of the first things to go into the range bag after the log book, ear muffs, and safety glasses. Best thing to come out of Israel since the Bible.

p.s. Just $21 on Amazon. Of the 12,888 reviews on Amazon, 92% of them are 5 star and another 7% are 4 star. That's the highest rated product I've ever seen on Amazon, and also the most ratings of any product too. 0% for 2 star and 1 star. These stats alone should convince you how good this product it.

- - -

p.p.s. One very important thing to remember, and one that I had to convince my lady friend to do at the range this past Saturday. Manually feed the first round into a magazine before using the UpLULA for the balance of rounds you will insert into that magazine. Otherwise, you may permanently damage the follower inside the magazine, which are usually made of plastic these days. The prong on the UpLULA that pushes a round into the magazine is metal, which could gouge or cut into a plastic follower.

As far as breaking, I had to use mine on my new M&P 45 as I couldn't get the last round in the mag to save my life. Thought sure the thing would break but it didn't.

I keep one clipped to my range bag, USPSA Limited, it's a pain to get round 19 and 20 in the mag.
