    Default homemade 9mm auto-loader

    Seems almost impossible to load the Glock magazines with those little 9mm rounds particularly the 30 round magazines. Driving home from the river was thinking of a way to make my own auto-loader. Below is what I came up with.

    Compress the stack of bullets with the auto-reloader

    Insert the next round. I works really well.

    I also bought an auto-loader from Amazon. com. I should get Saturday so then I can compare.

    That's interesting. I'm using Glock magazines in an AR-15 that shoots 9mm so I didn't get an autoloader. Looks like the Uplula runs about $39, I would like to see one of those. The autoloader from Amazon should show up any minute, it cost $7.00 plus $6 shipping. I figure the one I made would cost $200. UPDATE: Autoloader from Amazon is coming in 2 days now.

    I'm going to the gun club today. Maybe I'll see one out there.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    here's a photo of one I made. I was going to post a link to my thread about it but with the photobucketfiasco I decided to post a new photo. I really need to spay it down with some gun paint.

    I have all sorts of loaders that came with guns, that I bought, that were gifted. They have the uplulas hanging in each lane at the range I go to.

    I still use my thump. It gives me time to reflect on the shots I just fired.

    Received the Glock auto-loader from Amazon. It cost $7 plus $6 to ship. I just tested it and it works very well. It has all the same features as the one I made. My only question is why don't they include an auto-loader with each magazine purchase. I'll bet it only cost 30 cents to mold that piece. They could easily give those away with each purchase of a $35 magazine. It's all about money I guess.
