Our friends over at Maglula sent some photos of the counterfeit loaders that have been purchased from Amazon directly. As before, the best thing you can do to avoid falling victim to the fake loaders is to buy from a reputable retailer that purchased their entire inventory from Maglula.
Keep a watchful eye at markets and gun shows, they may also surface there.
Again, here is the note Maglula sent over:
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.
Dear Names Redacted,
Here’s a collection of 6 counterfeit loaders Amazon is currently or has sold.

Further below are two packaging of counterfeit loaders which Amazon receives direct from China and does FBA sticking a ‘Made In China’ label on ‘Made In Israel’ leaflet.
Nice going Amazon.
