Its Come to This… Side Feed Stripper Clip AR-15 Loaders

    In inexorable march of unneeded innovation continues to push on due to various “gun control” laws. While I disagree with them fully, there is a sizeable population of our dear TFB readers that live within their jurisdictions, so we still cover these technologies to help those get the most out of their laws.

    Specifically, the laws in California have forced a set of innovations designed to make the loading of already low capacity magazines all the more difficult. Various companies have stepped up offering new ways to quickly open the action to remove magazines, but a small company called MEAN has stepped in with a rather novel solution asking a basic question: Why open the action when you can load it together?

    Ther new and patent pending MA-Loader is designed to compy with the new California laws by allowing the shooter to used a fixed magazine (and therefore be compliant) and load the weapon from the ejection (ne-loading) port. Using a specially designed stripper loader, the weapon is quickly loaded to maximum California legal capacity (a paltry 10 rounds) and as a bonus the loaded weapon drops the bolt on the new rounds.

    Pricing is set at $39.99 per loader, so a full range session may require sizable expense (yet save money if one has multiple weapons they need to convert to compliant status.

    Description from MEAN:

    Our new MA-Loader is a California compliant, 10-round bullet loading device that will allow you to safely and efficiently reload your fixed magazine without the need to break down the firearm. Simply place the MA-Loader into your AR-15’s ejector port and press the thumb-ring slider to quickly load or reload. It is that simple!**

    The best part is, using an MA-Loader with a fixed magazine eliminates the requirement of registering your rifle with the State of California. If moving out of the state of California is not in your plans, lawful gun owners can still enjoy the use of their AR-15s with minimal disruptions while fully complying with the new laws.

    An unintended consequence of the new intrusive California laws is safety. Now with absolutely no ability to load an unloaded AR-15 for home defense within a reasonable amount of time, gun owners will inevitably choose to keep them loaded at all times. This could potentially put the people we are committed to defend at risk. The use of a MA-Loader prevents this problem and is the safest solution for all AR-15 owners anywhere. Once installed, it renders the weapon totally inoperable. Simply keep your AR-15 unloaded with an MA-Loader close by. One push and you are loaded & ready.

    Multiple states continue to trample on the rights of law abiding citizens. Use a MEAN Engineered MA-Loader to best use your weapons as intended.
