    Best speed loader for H&K P30?

    I was at the range yesterday and my friend had a new h&k p30 (sweet). We realized it didn't come with a speed loader like a lot of pistols do. We tried using a ruger sr9 speed loader and it worked but not very well because the lip on h&k mags is so little, so you had to be really careful the bullet would be held in rather than popping out before you set the bullet back a bit after lifting the loader out.

    i don't see any official h&k loaders. what would you suggest?

    I can't speak for the P30, but I bought an Uplula mag loader that works like a charm on my USP magazines.

    i saw people talking about that loader. you suggest it huh? is it really durable? i kinda like staying away from more mechanics because a solid piece of metal or plastic to reload seems so much more simple to me...

    and that h&k one is out of stock!

    Uplula... don't leave home without it. Works great on all my HK mags and most others as well.

    I've been wanting the UpLula but the LGS keeps being out of stock and I don't want to pay shipping.

    I have a MagLula for my AR15 - it is excellent! Highly recommended. I also have the ProMag 5-rounds-at-a-time jammer - it sucks.

    The HK mag loader pictured looks just like the Glock loaders that come in the box - they are useful, but not the best. The UpLula looks excellent, and based on my experiences with the MagLula, I'd recommend it.

    What's wrong with using your thumb and fingers?

    I have a LULA, but have only used it when breaking in a new mag that has a really stiff spring the first few times it's loaded.

    Not a thing, but the UPLULA makes life easier.

    I like it for loading a TON of mags, or when my hands are really cold.

    I've never used one for any of the classes I've taken.

    But maybe my fingers are strong. I've been loading mags this way since 1978...

    Could I have chocolate chip with some vanilla ice cream instead?
