Product Preview: MagPump 9mm Magazine Loader

posted on November 2, 2018

MagPump has converted the technology it brought to market with its AR-15 magazine loaders to 9 mm Luger double stack magazines. With a 50-round self-sorting hopper, users simply pour in a standard box of ball ammo and, after sending a few down the tube with the lever on the back, start pumping the handle to load a shot approximately every second. When the magazine is full, the MagPump’s built-in safeties will stop ammunition from being fed in order to prevent damaging either the ammunition or the magazine. The loader comes standard with adapters for Glock, SIG, Smith & Wesson, Springfield Armory, Ruger and CZ magazines; MSRP is $149.99. Single and double-stack magazine adapters will be available soon.
