  • 3.0 3.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Makes for fast loading of BBs for some pistols. It has attachments that can not only addapt for the listed pistols but can be used for others.

    Things I would have changed:

    Heavier grade of plastic. Smoother mechanism

    What others should know:

    This does not work with some BBs. Example It jams up totally with Crosman Copperheads. It works perfect with the Daisy Zinc BBs. Smoothness of the BBs counts. In addition, a little spray oil. However, if the BBs have oil on them they will not fly correctly.

  • 4.0 4.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    This jammed up at first, but then started working well. Its ok. Plastic is stronger than it looks.

    Things I would have changed:

    Better instructions

    What others should know:

    Works good for loading the Colt Defender by Umarex.

  • 3.0 3.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    Easy to operate

    Things I would have changed:

    Heavier plastic or metal parts for the plunger system

    What others should know:

    It's a little on the flimsy side and you definately have to exercise some caution when pushing the plunger down as it seems it could easily be broken but if you just give it a shake to free the jam rather then forcing the plunger down it actually works quite well.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Works great for what I use it for. It helps to add a few drops of oil in with the bb's, makes them feed easier.

    Things I would have changed:

    nothing so far

  • 3.0 3.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Once I got it working, it was wonderful. It is made from really tough material. It worked best with Daisy BBs. (Another popular brand was eventually OK but not as smooth or easy, even after I worked out the bugs.)

    Things I would have changed:

    Adapter #4 (for the Makarov) would not stay on the loader. I permanently attached it to the speedloader with JB Weld. Next I Dremeled off a tiny amount of the lock-lug to shorten it by about 1/64" and increased the bevel by about the same amount. After I ran about 100 BBs through the mechanism to loosen it up.I also added a few drops of oil to the hopper. I switched to Daisy BBs. It now functions beautifully. Now I wouldn't be without it!

    What others should know:

    This may work easily "right out of the box" for other magazine fed BB pistols, but it required a bit of tweeking and creativity with the Makarov. Don't give up if you initially have problems with it...you can probably work them out!

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    It works with a lot of clips and can be adapted to work on other brands.

    Things I would have changed:

    Make them a little stronger"They seem too fragile for long term use.And offer more adapters.

    What others should know:

    Be careful tying to fit them on clips"One wrong move and the adapter could snap ande break

  • 2.0 2.0

    2.0 2.0

    Things I liked:

    It is obvious that plenty of work went into the pre-production of this thing. It is very well made. If I had one of the guns that the dedicated adaptors fit, I might expect even more from it. It even stores with the plunger compressed and locked inside to keep it from breaking off. That's a neat idea.

    Things I would have changed:

    Well, the one I got just refused to work. With any more than one or two BBs in it, it jammed up tight. If it was up to me, I would make the "chute" that the BBs come down from the bulk area narrower so that they stay single file and did not bunch up, get almost side by side and then hang up and get stuck in the soft plastic. When that happens, the whole thing locks up.

    What others should know:

    I am not planning on sending it back to PA. In fact, I didn't even call them. By the time they send me another one, the cost of shipping it twice almost doubles the cost of the unit. Had I known in the beginning that the total I would spend to get one would be so much, I would not have bought it. So, I am going to cut my losses, just take the hit on this one and see what else is out there.

  • 3.0 3.0

    3.0 3.0

    Things I liked:

    I use this with the Walther PPK BB gun and I like that it loads the BB magazines fast.

    Things I would have changed:

    There is a trick to using this. You need to shake it a little to get the bbs to come out. The plunger seems to bind a little. I would like to to be smooth and load evenly but it does work.

    What others should know:

    Occationally, I would need to remove the clip for the magazine holder to remove an extra bb. Annoying but not enough to stop me from still using. Still use it and like it very much.

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    The ease in which you can load BB's, if it worked.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would make it work.

    What others should know:

    the plunger had to be pushed real hard to get BB's to come out, when it worked. and now it just doesn't do anything. will be talking to PA about a return/refund.

  • 5.0 5.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    I have 9, 15 round clip and without this I think I would sell the gun. It takes a bit to get used to but after you get the hang of it I can load all 9 clips in less than a minute. A very good product and I am happy someone came up with the idea.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Take you time a figure out how it works, don't force it, remove the clip and try again. Sometimes BB's get jammed. Once you get how to use it you will not understand how you could do without it

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Piece of junk, does not work, struggle with it for a length of time and went back to loading by hand.

    Things I would have changed:

    The big change would make, is to make it a working product! Not an overpriced piece of junk!!

    What others should know:

    save your money

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Makes loading bb s easier in bulk magazines,not so easy loading my clips or my Walther PPKS bb gun

    Things I would have changed:

    Instruction more in depth

    What others should know:

    This is a good tool, it takes time to master it

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    fast loading of my ppk mags

    Things I would have changed:

    bad instructions

    What others should know:

    a drop or 2 of pellgunoil on the plunger solves the jamming problems

  • 4.0 4.0

    4.0 4.0

    Things I liked:

    I have had my speedloader for about 3 months now. At first, I was like some of the other reviewers. It was more of a hassle then it was worth. It jammed on me all the time and seemed very fragile. But I planned on buying extra clips, enough to last 1 co2 cartridge, which turned out to be 9 clips total. I was not about to manually load them. I even bought 2 more loaders so I have not ever have to do so. I kept playing around with the loader until I learned how to use it. I broke it twice but was able to "crazy glue" it back together and keep it working. Now I do not have any problems at all with jamming and man, does it save me a bunch of time. I have ran about 12,000 BB's through it and it still works fine, "crazy glued" and all.

    Things I would have changed:

    I fully agree that the loader should come with better instructions and a very clear warning about what will happen if the BB follower in the clips is not placed in the proper position.

    What others should know:

    A person has to remember 2 things and that solves most of the problems. 1st is to shake it between clips to preload it. The second and the most important is to place the clip BB follower in the load position. Not doing so is how I broke it and also was the reason for it to jam up.

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    Well... the concept of being able to load magazines more quickly is kinda cool.

    Things I would have changed:

    Just about everything. This thing just feels CHEAP! when the lever comes up you just can't push it back down unless you put an ungodly amount of force on it which either breaks it or it sprays several bb's all over the place. it also makes a signature of an el cheapo plastic product: "CRINKLE!" that's about it, if I missed any thing read other reviews.

    What others should know:

    Don't buy this, I guess if you filled it with lead shot you could use this as a doorstop. The bottom line is DON'T BUY THIS, it is a $10 peice of JUNK.

  • 4.0 4.0

    5.0 5.0

    Things I liked:

    Works well for my ppk clips once you get the hang of using it.

    Things I would have changed:

    sturdier plunger

    What others should know:

    I disagree w/other reviews...it took me a while to figure out how to use it, but now it works smooth and quick to load several clips at a time...just don't try to force it!

  • 1.0 1.0

    1.0 1.0

    Things I liked:

    I did not like.

    Things I would have changed:

    This unit broke the fourth time I used it. The part in question is the plastic retainer that keeps the clip attached to the speed loader. The overall operation of this unit was terrible it jambed an BB's did not move smoothly. I would not have another

    What others should know:

    No

    Things I would have changed:

    Well it's a good idea and the adapters fit well but it flat out doesn't work! I suppose it"s possible I"m using it wrong but we"ll never know, Because there"s no instructions !

    What others should know:

    I would avoid this item ,Umarex really dropped the ball on this one
