The Maglula UpLula Magazine Loader/Unloader is a great tool for your range bag. Being a woman and a desk jockey, I have longer nails and softer skin than my husband. This makes loading magazine after magazine at the range not only difficult, but a little painful as well. The UpLula allows me to reload magazines in a quarter of the time and effort it would take me to reload without one.
I first heard of the UpLula in 2014 at my local gun range. It was a gimmicky women’s targeted item being that it came in pink (what woman doesn’t love pink?!). This tool comes in a variety of colors today such as brown, black, dark green, lemon, purple, and pink. I ended up purchasing my UpLula through Amazon because they offered the best price. You do pay for the luxury of color options. The black UpLula is $28.99, while the pink is $33.25. Quite a price increase for a color I think. Now the UpLula doesn’t reload all calibers. Unfortunately, it will not work on all calibers, however this would be your go to speed loader for both single and double stack magazines of 9mm, 10mm, .357, 40 and 45-caliber rounds. Here is a link that goes into detail on different magazines that will and won't work.
One thing to remember while loading with this speed loader is to push each round back into the magazine so that it feeds properly. Otherwise you could end up with some issues loading the following rounds. In a perfect world, this speed loader would have some mechanism that can hold the round back while releasing the feed ramp. Also be aware there is a lock on the side of the loader to assist with storage. However, I have witnessed issues at the range with other UpLula users forgetting to unlock their speed loader prior to use.
So if you want to save that manicure, get your hands on the Maglula UpLula!
