Our friends over at Maglula sent over a notification that their excellent loaders have been counterfeited. Below is the release they sent over, sadly we do not have any photos of a fake loader to show you. Your best defense is to buy from a quality retailer until the folks at Maglula can sort everything out.
Counterfeit warning !
Low quality Chinese counterfeit loaders cloning our popular patented UpLULA™ universal pistol mag loaders are offered for sale on Amazon and eBay. Commingling of genuine and counterfeit loaders in the same Amazon bin may result shipping of counterfeits. Please refrain from ordering loaders there until further notice. If you suspect receiving a counterfeit loader, please contact Amazon’s or eBay’s customer service and return the loader.
Please shop at local gun stores you trust and from companies we ship to direct: Brownells, MidwayUSA, Cabela’s, BassPro, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Turner’s, CheaperThanDirt, Sportsman’s Guide, ShopRuger.
Be cautious of counterfeits at weekend gun shows and markets. Some Chinese knockoffs are very similar to our own deceivingly having UpLULA and ‘Made in Israel’ embedded in them and packed in blisters similar to ours.
