AR15 Mags

Alright. I was watching a video on loading AR mags. This guy was using a military surplus kit, with stripper clips and the assorted stuff to go along with it. I am certain there is an easier way to fill these up pretty fast! Anyone have the info for which one I should buy????

do what i did

third squad of the platoon had to stand around a big table of ammo cans and empty magazines and,using stripper clips and mag speed loaders,they filled them until all the magazines were full.Then i went over and selected a magazine,tapped it on my helmet to align the bullets to the rear of the magazine,and inserted it into the m16,make sure you wear a helmet,those magazines will raise a welt http://www.midwayusa.com/browse/BrowseProducts.aspx?t=82579&pageNum=0&ta...

memories. Standing around loading tables, filling all those mags. Wish I had all those cans of ammo now though.

Speed loaders,

I bought a LULA speed loader and it works very well, I can load a mag in about a minute, though I have never really timed myself nor gone for speed.... http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm?contentID=productDetail&prodID=BC24...

It was a godsend,

loading 30's by hand sucks ass especially out in the desert when the kids are emptying them quicker than I can load them. Now I just throw them the LULA and they load there own. I need to get one for my P-89, I have a 20 rd mag for it and talk about a bitch to load the last 5.

because of the arthiritis in my thumbs, made my 9 hard to load. 15, 20 & 30 round mags for the Glock & my Marlin Camp 9.

What a great invention.

Mike I use a C-beta mag loader to load all my mags, it will load 10 rounds at a time and pretty fast at that.

Here are two examples of mine but not my video.

Here is another alternative, I have never used these but they seem to get good reviews.

Man, that Beta Speed Loader is the cat's meow. I'm going to get one of those. It sure beats the old military spoon with stripper clips. and a whole lot faster than the Lula. Might be worth the money. I'll check it out.
