    Question on magazine loader.

    Finally went to the range today to try out my new Sig P938 and ran into a major problem. Due to the arthritis in my hands I just cannot get those little rounds into the magazines. I found a magazine loader on Amazon.com called a HKS 943 Adjustable Single Stack Magazine Speedloader. Has anyone tried this product and if so how well does it work?

    New one on me but, looking at the expanded photo...leverage is your friend. Looks good on principle.

    +1 on the LULA. Works we'll with both single and double stack mags.

    Yep, the UpLULA's the ticket. Don't need it for the 1911s, but for the Glock and CZ it's fast and a lot easier on the fingers.

    The UpLULA was a lifesaver for my M&P 9c. Those mags are ridiculous from the factory, even for my relatively young hands. Get it.

    Posting from my phone, I blame all typos on Swype.

    Thanks all; the LULA looks far more versatile than the HKS so I think I will go that route. I like the idea that it will handle both single stack and double stack and is not limited by magazine length.

    They are a must at the range. One of the best purchases you'll make for loading your mags.

    another +1 for LULA. Some of my mags had sharp edges that cut my fingers when loading. I have stoned them all off now, but I never discovered those sharp edges were there until I forgot to bring my LULA to the range one time. I try never to go shooting without it!!

    I don't know if I have that exact model, but I use the HKS similar model for double stack .380 and 9mm Mak (for my CZ-82) and it works fine. No doubt it will do the job at less cost than the Uplulu.

    Absolutely on any "lula" product. For the G 19 & M&P guys, get the maglula. For the AR guys, the "striplula" rocks the house.

    They are cheap, and last. I used a maglula during the Fighting Pistol course, and man I was glad I did. That was years ago, and it still works. With as many rounds as I have used it on, I would have thought it would break. NOPE. Works great to this day.

    Definitely the LULA, and as StormRhyder said the Strip LULA is great for AR's.
