We Love It: Maglula UpLULA

The Maglula UpLULA may be one of the most useful little gadgets the firearm industry makes, and it’s certainly one of the easiest and safest ways to load and unload your gun. We don’t want to sound like we get upset when loading magazines wrecks our manicure—really we don’t—but the fact of the matter is that the process of getting ammunition into a given gun’s magazine and then back out again can be a real pain. (Ask anyone who’s ever caught a nail under the lip of the magazine and left half of it in there … ouch!) The UpLULA is your one-way ticket out of Ouchtown. Here’s what we mean.

Maglula UpLULAThe UpLULA is a universal pistol magazine loader and unloader, and it essentially does all of the work for you. When we say “universal,” we mean it; the UpLULA self-adjusts to your magazine, encompassing calibers from 9 mm Luger to .45 ACP (and even some .380 ACP too). It works with just about every kind of major magazine manufacturer out there, as well, including (but not limited to): Astra, Auto Ordnance, Barak, Beretta, Browning, Bul, Colt, CZ, EAA, FN, Glock, HK, Hi-Point, High Standard, Jericho, Kahr, Kel-Tec, Kimber, Les Baer, Llama, Luger, Magnum Research, Para Ordnance, Phoenix Arms, Ruger, Sigma, Sig/Sauer, S&W, Springfield Armory, Star, Steyr, Taurus, Vector, Walther, and more.

To load the UpLULA, you just drop the rounds in without pushing or pressing with your thumb. Your fingers and your magazines will enjoy the extra protection the UpLULA offers, even as you load hundreds of rounds at the rate of about one per second—about a third of the time it takes to do it manually.

Watch this video to see how easy the UpLULA is to use.

Maglula UpLULAThis highly durable, military-grade universal loader can go with you just about anywhere, since it’s about the size of a standard pocket and weighs just over 2 ozs. The one place it won’t go, however, is on a website that isn’t one of Maglula’s trusted retailers. The company has alerted us that there are a number of inexpensive (and inadequate) “knock-offs” making the rounds, and would like you to know that they only sell through trusted brick-and-morter stores and the following websites: Academy, Brownells, MidwayUSA, Cabela’s, BassPro, Gander Outdoors, Turner’s, CheaperThanDirt and ShopRuger. Although prices may vary a bit from retailer to retailer, you can expect to pay approximately $30. For more information about the UpLULA, click here!
