SP101 .22lr 8 shot speed loaders?

I am sorry if this has been asked before. I used the search function and couldn't find anything. I am looking for speed loaders for my SP101 .22lr 8 shot. I cant find anything.

The only thing I can find is the speed beez and I think $30 is way over priced. for my other guns I usually find HKS for under $10. Anyone have any idea of where I can find some reasonably priced speed loaders?

I am in the same situation as you are.
Also waiting for HKS to start making them.

Being it's such a new model I'm sure it will be awhile even if they ever make them.I might be ignorant but I don't think I've seen any speed loader for 22 revolvers.I'm not sure it would be a good idea being rimfire and holding them in the speedloader on the rims.

As for good prices check with shooter suppliers like Midway, Natchez, Midsouth etc. Shipping kills you unless you order enough stuff to cover the shipping.

Here is another speedloader:

Ruger SP101 8 shot DS-10-SPEED

They make speedloaders for a number of .22LR revolvers. I am not
certain but believe they may be spring loaded to force the rounds into
the chambers solidly. Having a S&W 18 (horrors!) I bought an HKS
for the gun. One thing with .22's is they do not have much mass
unlike centerfires so gravity does not drop them in all the way and
I got some misfires in that the cases where not seated solidly. Also,
the chambers were polished so they were smooth taking one unkown
out of the equation. So, it may be spring loaded is required to load
rapidly and not get misfires. Over at Brian Enos revolver forum some
time back it seemed some use the DS10's with the 10 shot Smith
617's without too many problems.

I learn something new everyday. I never thought of a speedloader for a 22 and I'm sure I had never seen one. I guess that blows my theory about holding a rimfire by the rim.

I'm not knocking someone who wants speed loaders for a 22 but I question why.

22s are mostly range toys or varmint killers and not defensive weapons so why the need to reload quickly?

Not trying to be argumentative, just curious.

As an alternative, Tuff Products makes their Quick Strips for .22. Each strip holds up to ten rounds, two are about ten bucks.

I've never used any .22 strips, but I use Bianchi Speed Strips for .38 and like them. I don't think Bianchi makes .22 strips.

"I'm not knocking someone who wants speed loaders for a 22 but I question why."

I gather from some other forums there are some events people are shooting against the clock so a quick reload is necessary. What the events are I don't know.

Regarding cost some centerfire reloads such as the SL Variant or Jet Loader are not inexpensive either. In fact often the rimfire revolvers cost more than the centerfires.

I usually shoot with a few guys. While others are shooting I will load up speed loaders and extra mags. While I am shooting others will load up for me. Just allows for more shooting time when time is short.

Not using it for defense at all but if all the squirrels do gang up and attack I will be ready LOL.

There sure are a lot more 8 shot .22 revolvers out there now than a few years ago (Ruger SP 101, Ruger LCR, S&W 317, & S&W 63) , but I still see nothing coming from HKS. I have seen the other 8 shot .22 speedloaders out there from othe manucfatures and they are more costly and complicated than HKS.
Is there anyway to contact HKS and put a suggestion in? Their website has no way to commit or ask questions.

I DO carry a S&W 34 22LR for defense. I also have two HKS speed loaders for it as well-not so much for a "combat reload" as it is for convenience sake. It allows me to leave my revolver unloaded in the safe, but have the ability to quickly load-up if I, or my wife needs it. Of Course, the 1911 is ready to go too!
