Great idea! My fingers kill after 500 rounds of loading!

I like this HKS Mag Loader becasue I don't have to hold it down, the pressure of the arm keeps it it one place.

I suggest you try the Ultimate Clip Loader - I got mine on Ebay for about $23 inc shipping. Works great but you go through lots of ammo!

I agree with AZLCR. Have one and it works great. Can be found at different sites. I think you will enjoy the speed of the reloads. Just my 2 cents.

My thumb is sore as I forgot my loader on Tuesday. Won't do that again.

I was at cabelas looking for the ultimate clip loader but found the HKS loader for about $4 instead. It works pretty good.

Now tell me why I should go and buy something else when what I have works equally as well. I have the mold to make the one I have and they work as well as the others. Not only that but they sell well at the gun shows and I make a little money on the side.

I also have a McFadden magazine loader. Loads a magazine in about 5 seconds.

This loader is not offered in a model that will work with the MKIII guns. However they can be MADE to work with a MKIII magazine. I simply took after mine with a small router bit on my dremel tool and cut a relief in it so it would slide over the raised magazine release protrusion on the magazine. Now it works slicker than goose doo-doo on a pump handle! (And that's pretty slick ... don't ask how I know!)
