The Mag Pump magazine loader is a pretty impressive engineering feat. To use it, push a magazine in, dump a box or handful of ammo in the hopper, and start pumping the handle. It’s literally that simple. The ammo doesn’t need to be oriented or sorted, the loader figures it out and puts it into your magazine in the correct orientation. To be honest, I’m just like any other man and don’t like reading directions. Nothing was different here. I was able to put the Mag Pump together and use it without doing anything with the directions besides moving them out of the way.
The Mag Pump loader is made from injection molded plastic and stainless steel parts. The base is detachable so it can be screwed or clamped to a board or workbench and then quickly reattached using the two toolless hand knobs. The top of the hopper can also be removed for easy storage or travel in a range bag by pulling two stainless steel pins.
The entire loader feels substantial and well built. It makes me happy that the unit is proudly built in the USA and that Mag Pump offers a No Questions Asked Lifetime Transferable Warranty.
The hopper is capable of handling up to 50 rounds of ammunition. The unit tested is new for 2018 and loads 9mm into pistol magazines. Obviously, PCC shooters that use high capacity Glock magazines would save a ton of time and effort.
While the Mag Loader is an absolutely cool accessory to have, you’ll need to be putting rounds downrange to actually “need” one of these units. Gun enthusiasts, competition shooters, military units, and police officers, can all benefit from time saved loading magazines. One of the major benefits is not having sore fingers from pushing rounds into magazines. The more you shoot and load, the more likely it is that you need a Mag Pump.
I tested the unit to see just how fast you can load and it comes in at well under one round per second. See Video.
