    I am thinking about using my AR for home defense as well as my Remmy 870 and CZ52

    I was wondering if theres a quick way to load an AR mag.
    It has to be pretty precise as after Im done with the Remmy stuff which has a more short, blunt tip I am going to keep using the Radway stuff I bought which has a more pointy long tip. The Radway stuff is so long I have to pay attention when I load it as it fits almost snug in the mag.

    I already tried to load with a stripper clip, but thats almost impossible.
    For the mean time I have loaded my crap D&H ind mags to see if the springs die after excessive storage time. But I have no guarantee that theyll work if I need em.

    i use speed loaders, just a little metal clip that connects the stripper clip to the mag then just push down

    takes a whole second to load 28 rounds

    LULA works nicely but like 96accord I usually just use stripper clips and the little USGI loader works ok and there cheap.

    I wish I could find a decent speedloader for my AK :wtc:. I've tried a few of them and they all suck ass.

    If you use it you will have to go to court to see why you defended yourself with an evil assault rifle :noes:

    I personally, have never had a problem using the full 30 rds. Bolt open, bolt close. Doesnt matter.
