SmitLoad Glock Mag Loader

If you do a lot of shooting then I’m sure you probably have at least one kind of speed loader device in your range bag. Rifle and .22lr mags usually aren’t too difficult to load, but pistol mags can be tiresome after a while, especially Glock mags. Glocks now come with a mag loader from the factory which definitely helps save your thumbs after an entire day of shooting. There’s also the PlugLoader, it’s a handy little speed loader that fits in that empty spot behind the magwell on Glocks.

Check out this new speed loader in the works that I stumbled upon on YouTube called the SmitLoad. It’s a 3D printed speed loader currently in development for Glock magazines. It kind of reminds me of the B&T Magazine Loader from that we posted about a while back, the way it loads magazines is very similar in that you have to use a flat vertical edge of a table to load the ammo into your mags. The B&T only works with MP5 mags however, and how many of us have MP5s? I wish I did! The new SmitLoad speed loader will work with 9mm Glock mags, I’m sure they’ll work on one for .40SW and .45acp after their first product launches. Currently there’s no pricing or a release date as of yet, check it out in action below and check out their site for future updates at

    Actually this has been around for a while. There was a video floating around a year or two ago for the SMG version. Nice to see the innovation. Lula’s work very well and are fairly universal.

    • Ken

      The SMG version loads in a double stack, double feed MP5 mag. This is a little different since a Glock mag is double stack, single feed.

    Nice handguns come with loaders. Just sayin’

    • Spencerhut

      What handgun comes with a loader that is worth a damn? Name one . . .

      • USMC03Vet

        My Springfield came with a nice loader. Came with nice sights, holster, came with extra magazines too.

        herp derp.


        • Phil Hsueh

          My Glock 22 comes with a loader, of sorts, which works quite well, although you can only load one round at a time with it.

      • Harrison Jones

        Glocks and my Walther PPQ. They work well. And the SW M&P range kit comes with a maglula but that doesn’t really count.

      • Spencerhut

        Of everything mentioned the only one worth a damn is the Lula in S&W Range Kit. Glock loader is junk. Springfield loader is junk, as is the holster and mag pouch they come with.
        If you think the Glock or Springfield loaders are good, you have never tried a Lula.

        • Drunk Possum

          I like my Springfield loader better than the UpLula. I find the Lula very akward, much like myself. I’m gonna have to break down and buy one and figure it out tho, the springer loader doesn’t fit on my Caspian mags >○<

  • DanGoodShot

    Whatever, I’ll take one.

      I have not found a .380,9mm or 45 pistol mag that the Magula won’t work with. I’ll stick with the Magula.

  • Edward

    Does this spread the feedlips?

  • Harrison Jones

    Cool Idea but do you need a square edge to load from? I want something I can load from the back of my car or SUV.

    • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

      I would guess that you can use your thumb instead of the edge of the desk

      • Harrison Jones

        Depending on the pressure it puts on your thumb it may just be less painful to load the old fashion way. Hope to try one of these out locally to see.

  • Dee Carlile

    If I did this at my house I’d have to factor in the cost of a new table or desk as soon as my wife saw the scratch marks.

  • Christian Hedegaard-Schou

    This thing CANNOT be good for the feed lips.

    The B&T loader works fine because it’s for double-stack mags that allow you to load in the way that a stripper clip works (which is really all these things are).

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    I remember when I first saw this the source said “Now criminals can load their ammunition without leaving fingerprints.”

    Theres always those people.

    • m-cameron

      Because we all know gloves have not been invented yet

  • Sledgecrowbar

    Been waiting for this since the B&T loader came out. I went Colt SMG-style for my AR 9mm but this takes out the last reason I didn’t get a Glock AR lower, aside from them being a lot pricier than a Colt-style setup. It is really nice that I can load my 9mm for the Colt SMG mags on 5.56 stripper clips and load with the StripLula, which everyone at the range agrees, is worth every penny the inventor gets from it, but this is just as fast and I don’t have to bother with the stripper clips, and I do own a Glock in 9mm.

  • Anomanom

    Am i the only one who read it as “ShitLoad Glock Mag Loader”?

  • guest

    and what if I have a 1000 rounds of hand-loaded ammo in a bag and not in a factory plastic frame? And what if the frame is not as wide as this one, with not enough space between the rounds?
    Then I guess I will have to get a Maglula, baruch a’shem, and protect my frail arthritic fingers with that because I can totally see how loading cartridges into a magazine can be such a physical challenge.

  • Manfredi1

    Has anyone out there tried using the Glock mag loaders with non-Glock mags within the same caliber? If so how do they work?

  • Fred

    Sweet! They just invented the stripper clip!

  • DaveK

    Does a desk come with your first purchase?
