    Kahr magazine loaders

    I have a friend who is having problems loading the magazine for his 9mm Kahr CM9. (hand strength wise) Kahr and other manufacturers make a plastic loader. Does anyone have experience with the plastice loaders compared to metal ones?

    IMOP just get a lula and be done with it ... It can be used for most guns .. I used the double stack one for 938 mags ..Just need a firm surface ...

    So I am not sure what khar makes ... So I cant comment on it ... If it is like a glock loader and cheep I might get one just to have as the glock loader is pretty simly and fast .. But since the lula cover most guns you do get more bang for buck

    The Up-Lula is easy to use and the most versatile. Two sizes - I think the standard size would work with the Kahr. The main limitation of this loader is that it's much easier to use if the magazine can be supported or braced on a horizontal surface - think table top. The HKS loaders are easier to use without such support, say if you're standing up in the open, but with the HKS, you need the properly sized model. I have five different HKS loaders to use with different guns, but one Up-Lula replaces them all. Cost is about $30 for the Up-Lula, and about $12 for an HKS. If the Kahr is the ONLY gun for which a loader is needed, then an HKS would work just fine.

    Both HKS and Up-Lula are made from plastic, which, IMO, is a better material in this application. A metal loader would be more likely to scratch or gouge brass or magazine.

    If you have a semi-auto and don't have an UPLuLa you are missing the boat.

    Thanks guys, I'll give him this information. I think he is concerned about plastic not holding up as well as metal. My ruger came with a metal loader. The HKS and the Lula are plastic but I think they should do fine.

    we went to a lgs and picked up a Lula. He loves it. I'll have to keep it in mind if I find I need a loader. Thanks for your input.
