“How can something so wrong, feel so right?” Every time I hear about an AR chambered in 7.62×39, these are the words that run through my head. Even though the combination should be blasphemy to combloc and freedom-loving shooters alike, the 7.62 AR15 combination is a fun and possibly inexpensive shooting setup. And here to save our thumbs from all that magloading is Maglula with a new loader/unloader.
If you are unfamiliar with Maglula, they make simple and inexpensive devices that help shooters both load and unload magazines quickly. Their latest release is a portable 7.62×39 AR15 device that make loading mags as easy as flipping a switch.
Don’t have a 7.62 AR15? Not to worry, Maglula has dozens of loader options for other platforms. Take a look.

NOTE: All these mags have no anti-tilt mag followers (due to their curved construction) and generally bear compromised design. Hence, some loading and unloading difficulties may arise when there are 1 to 3 rounds in the magazine. e.g. loading the first three rounds and unloading the last three rounds may pose a challenge; yet performance is well past three rounds.
Also Note: Due to the very thin sheet metal used in construction of these mags we’ve added a metal mag-catch to resist the knife-like pressure on the LULA otherwise polymer mag-catch.Thus, expect some marks on the coating of the magazine above its mag-catch hole. Do not use this LULA loader if these marks are an issue.
