New MagLULA – Second Gen Loader 17 Years Later

by Pete

It you have not had the chance to use a magazine loader/unloader, it is probably time. The new MagLULA that was just announced is an upgraded version of the tried and tested original that fits atop an AR magazine to allow rounds to be easily loaded or unloaded. Like flicking a switch, the arm of the new MagLULA pushes a round (or follower) down to allow for space for a new round to be dropped into place. A simple but ingenious invention that has helped shooters load up more easily for almost two decades.

Purists will argue that the new MagLULA (or original) is unnecessary, relying on their thumbs to do all the work. For those who own fully automatic ARs, attend high round count carbine classes, or who are physically impaired, the MagLULA is a welcome addition to a range kit.

Details are listed below.

After 17 years of production we’ve created a more compact, lighter, smoothly-operated loader & unloader. Further, the new loader fits and releases from both magazines held by a magazine-coupler. Part number and price remain unchanged.

    I have a MagLULA, and it has saved my thumbs from an unholy amount of untold mangling, but I’ve never really understood the need for one for an AR pattern magazine.

    I get that it probably makes loading them faster - that’s a valid concern, but it’s never been important for me. Is there some other benefit I’m just not seeing?
