Zeta Industries has just introduced a new and unique revolver speedloader that is specifically designed to work in tandem with your K-Frame sized revolvers. The Zeta Industries K-PAK is a K-Frame speedloader made from polymer and is small enough to fit in your pocket efficiently.
New K-Frame Speedloader for your Favorite Revolvers from Zeta Industries
K-Frame revolvers were historically known as .38 Special frames and were designed around the cartridge throughout the early 20th century. A lot of K-Frame revolvers also ended up in the hands of Law Enforcement personnel adding to the popularity and prevalence of the style.
The Zeta6 K-PAK Speed Loader will fit the following 6-round revolvers chambered in 38SP/357 Magnum:
- Smith and Wesson 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 315
- Colt PPS, Detective Special, Agent, Cobra, King Cobra
- Kimber K6s
- Taurus 856, 65, 80, 82, 606, 669, 689
- Dan Wesson 38/357 K-frames
- Rossi 38/357 K-frames
Unlike a more traditional rigid speedloader, the K-PAK is both flexible and narrow which lends itself to being carried more covertly. This is the first Zeta6 K-Frame sized speedloader which adds to the already existing line of J-Frame speedloaders. Product designer Michael Lyle had this to say about the impetus for designing a new speed loader specifically for K-Frame revolvers.
The inspiration for this design was the moon clip, used since the early 20th century to reload revolvers quickly. We wanted to make the speedloader completely symmetrical, so the user would not have to think about orientation. For this reason, we pointed the two half-round moon clip patterns in opposite directions, creating something that we call an offset strip speedloader.
Zeta Industries says that the K-PAK will work perfectly with all Smith & Wesson, 6-shot, K-Frame revolvers which are chambered in .38 Special and .357 Magnum. I think this flexible polymer design offers a lot of advantages for people looking to conceal carry a K-frame revolver over a traditional polygonal speedloader which would be far more noticeable. Another added bonus is the price (MSRP: $11.95) which makes it a bit less expensive than a traditional speedloader.
