Caldwell Shooting Supplies expands its line of dedicate magazine loaders with the Mag Charger Universal Pistol Loader, a nifty universal device that will load single- and double-stack handgun magazines in all the most popular calibers
As sport shooters, leisure shooters and professionals know all too well, loading magazines by hand can be one of the trickiest, most annoying most exhausting and potentially most painful aspects of our hobbies, sports, or employment.
Caldwell Shooting Supplies – a Battenfeld Technologies brand, and one of America's best-known manufacturers and suppliers of accessories, tools, components and supplies dedicated to sport shooters – is well aware of it, and as a matter of fact the Company has been offering for years now a line of commercial Mag Chargers, dedicated to the quick and easy loading of the detachable magazines used by some of the most popular modern sporting firearms.
Caldwell's Mag Chargers were available only for STANAG magazines, used in AR-15 variants and other modern sporting rifles, and for 7.62x39mm caliber magazines used in AK rifle variants.
New for the year 2017, Caldwell boosts the line with the introduction of the Mag Charger® Universal Pistol Loader – a universal loader dedicated to single-stack and double-stack pistol magazines in six popular sport shooting, defensive and service calibers: .380 ACP, 9mm, 10mm Auto, .40 Smith & Wesson, .45 ACP and .357 SIG.
Just like all other Caldwell's Mag Chargers, the new Universal Pistol Loader sports a rugged semi-transparent polycarbonate construction, offering robust reliability even after years of hard use while, at the same time, remaining lightweight, ergonomic, easy to use and – most important – cheap enough for all pockets.
The Caldwell Mag Charger® Universal Pistol Loader is extremely easy to use: it features a dedicated seat where a magazine can be inserted upside down, and two numbered and adjustable side shims that will adapt the Mag Charger® Universal Pistol Loader to single-stack or double-stack full-size or compact pistol magazines. Once the shims are set in the right position and the magazine is inserted, a lock knob can be tightened to secure the mag while loading.
With the magazine in place and locked, rounds can be dropped one by one in the charger and loaded in the magazine by squeezing the no-flex, robust, ergonomic die-cast aluminum handle. The Caldwell Mag Charger® Universal Pistol Loader will make it twice as faster to load a magazine, and will require half as force to operate, than loading by hand – and is considerably faster than many other mag chargers currently available on the market.
