The Upulua Speed Loader from Maglula is the perfect addition to your range bag. I hate going to the range without this thing, it is truly the best.
Let’s be real, my favorite thing about the Upulua is that it saves my nail (let’s be real my manicure) from being destroyed while loading mags. During a typical USPSA match, I’m loading my magazines about 30-40 times. It completely wreaks havoc on my hands, I usually have a broken fingernail by the end of the day, if not a pretty sore thumb.
Shallow aspects aside, the Upulua also speeds up the process of loading magazines between stages. Hence the name, Speed Loader. According to Maglula, you can load up to one round per sec. That’s 1/3 of the time when loading several mags compared with thumb loading.
Uplula Speed Loader Features:
- One size fits all most everything
- 9mm, 357 Sig, 10mm, .40, and .45ACP cal
- single and double stack magazines
- Easy loading; the rounds just drop in with no fingers pushing or pressing them
- Compact size easily fits in a pocket
- Military quality, highly durable.
The Upulua is also perfect for loading new mags when the springs haven’t been broken in yet. Just squeeze it together, push down over the magazine, slide the bullet into place, release.
While the Upulula fits most, they also the BabyUplula for .22LR – .380ACP and rifle loaders. I don’t have any experience with either product, but I imagine they work as flawlessly as the Uplula does. It also comes in a variety of colors but naturally, I always gravitate towards OD Green.
At the end of the day, you can’t go wrong with a Uplula Speed Loader. It does exactly what the name implies, speeds things up, and saves a considerable amount of sweat and broken nails. At only $28, it’s a worthwhile investment to anyone who is an avid range goer, or who just needs some assistance loading their firearm.
