Caldwell’s New AK-47 Mag Charger

caldwell2

First there was the AR-15 mag charger from Caldwell, and now they’re releasing an AK-47 version. Just like the AR-15 version this new model is simple to operate and significantly speeds up mag-loading time. The charger holds fifty 7.62x39mm rounds which can be loaded into AK/AKM mags five at a time with each stroke of the plunger. Loading the charger is easy, too, simply leave the rounds in the plastic tray they come stored in within most 50-round boxes, line them up with the charger, and tip them in. They also offer a separate plastic box for storing rounds that’s compatible with the mag charger.

  • Given that there are no effective stripper clip systems for AK mags, this thing looks pretty handy. (And, no, those Chinese stripper clip guides are not effective, they barely work on a good day.)

    are we missing an operation step? How does the big round spring that sticks out in the polycarbonate cylindrical extension on the side of the box get compressed?

    It seems that that big round spring needs to be compressed at the start of the process so that you dump the rounds into their place and work the plunger the spring will advance rows of 5 rounds into position for the next plunger stroke.

    maybe there’s something to grab on the bottom of the device to compress it?

    Seeing as most ak food comes in tight little boxes of 20, this isn’t very helpful unless you have cripple hands or something
