Caldwell Universal Pistol Mag Loader

Caldwell released a new universal pistol magazine loader as part of the Mag Charger line. Magazine loaders are a popular accessory. Speed loaders sell well to the new shooter that has trouble stuffing rounds into high cap mags and also the seasoned shooter that has many magazines to load and needs to give the thumbs a break from loading.

S&W had the Caldwell Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader at SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range and after getting my hands on one I will confirm that it is surprisingly adjustable, easily switching from loading S&W M&P Shield magazines to S&W M&P 2.0 Magazines. The actual loading of the rounds into the magazine is indeed as easy as inserting the round into the port and cycling the lever. The lever is a two-stage affair that pushed the round down into the magazine and then back in the feed lips with a distinct second stage.

The Caldwell Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader will work for single stack and double stack magazines and it will accommodate 9mm Luger, 10mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, .45 GAP, and .45 ACP caliber pistol magazines. The Mag Charger uses a fairly simple-looking drop-the-bullet-in-and-squeeze-the-lever loading action to insert the cartridges into the magazine. The adjustable

    this ergonomic mag loader would be great for older shooters with weaker hands or even arthritis.

  • Evan Morris

    Would be awesome if it worked with MPX mags but I’m doubtful

  • it’s just Boris

    Looks like the article text was cut off mid-sentence right above the pictures.

    Regardless, any thoughts on how/whether this is better than an upLULA? Certainly it’s not as compact.

    • Drew Coleman

      I was just thinking that. How is this better than the Uplula?

    • Wingbert

      The two advantage I see is you wouldn’t have have the base of the mag against a surface during the loading cycle. And one unit works for both single and double stack mags. I’d give it a try if it is priced competitively.

      • it’s just Boris

        I never had a problem using the same upLULA with either single or double stack magazines. It just takes a modicum of care.

  • mouse

    I might be interested if this worked with CZ Scorpion Evo mags.

  • Keith Brockmiller

    I may be blind, but did anyone see a price?

    • Cottersay

      I think I saw a price in the article. MSRP: A LOT.

    • gwvogtsr

      MidwayUSA has them for 34.95

      • VBottom

        Midway is out of stock NOW…..2 more wks to resupply….

    The Maglula Uplula loader is still the simplest one out there, and I’m sure the Maglula, is a lot less than this is!
