Save Your Thumbs with the MagPump Magazine Loader – SHOT Show 2018

The MagPump mag loader retails for $149.99.

No one likes handloading magazines.  It’s tedious.  It’s time-consuming.  And it does a number on your thumbs.  With the MagPump magazine loader all that goes away.

To operate this contraption all you do is dump your loose ammo into the hopper.  In any old fashion.  No need to orient the rounds in any particular direction.  Attach your mag to the dock.  Pump the handle, one, two, three… until the magazine is completely loaded.  Easy peasy.

Also, don’t fret about over-pumping or over-loading.  A built-in safety system stops when the mag is full.  So cool.  I know, this product sells itself.

At SHOT Show 2018, the company added a new member to the family.  A mag loader for 9mm Luger!

Naturally, the question you’re asking yourself right this minute is: does it work for my 9mm duty gun?  Well, here’s the answer, as all these are compatible with the unit:

  • SIG – 320, P224, P226, P228, P229, P250, SP2022, SP2340, SP2009
  • Glock – Glock 17, Glock 17L, Glock 18, Glock 19, Glock 26, Glock 34
  • Spring Field Armory – XD, XD mod.2
  • Smith & Wesson – M&P
  • CZ USA – P10
  • Ruger – SR9, SR9c, 9E

The base model is constructed from a lightweight and durable polymer.  The hopper has a capacity of 50 rounds.  And purchasers get six retainers that fit various doublestack magazine brands.

Here is an “elite” version of the AR.

Retail for the 9mm model is $149.99.  Other models include the AR-15 and AK-47 loaders.  Those sell for $149.99 as well.  MagPump does offer “elite” versions of the AR and AK models, which are basically industrial strength iterations CNC machined from aluminum billet and laser engraved.  Price tag on these heavy-duty loaders is $399.99.

The AK version.

Rounds can be oriented in any direction.

    Looks nice, just not 150 nice. Granted, it seems to work well, and that is not going to come cheap. But 150 would buy ten extra mags (magpul G17’s on sale at 12.95 each). So, I just load them up the night before at home.

    Looks like it might be a bit too big for my range bag. lol

    And nobody makes or uses single stack mags?

      Give em time. They just launched the 9mm. I’m sure they’ll come up with a solution for single stack mags.

      I sure could use one for my Springfield Armory 1911 Mil-Spec .45 auto. I wreck my thumb every time I hit the range-which is often.
