My mag loader that came with my G20 doesn't work, why didn't anybody warn me?
WARNING! Life may be difficult at times;g
I dunno - I've used mine for years and it works fine for me. After you get the cartridge in part way, the loader must be raised to push the cartridge a little further in - at which point, you can push that round down a little and get it all the way in the magazine.
My loader only pushes the top shell down a little bit, only enough to raised the front end of shell making it even harder to load next shell, maybe they sent me the wrong one?
I think your problem is that you've got a loose nut behind the loader.
Possibly, I just thought somebody else would admit the 10mm mag loader sucked.
So the loader is just about as long as your mag? Yep, that's wrong...
Mine works just fine. Put it on the magazine and push down all the way. This will clear enough room to insert another round into the feedlips about half way. Remove the loader slightly so that it no longer is in the way and push the round the rest of the way into the feed lips. Repeat.
I get how it works, my 9mm one works great, the 10mm one doesn't.
I bought some new G20 mags a while back. Tried the mag loader and determined it to be useless. Loaded all of the mags without it, and got all 15 rounds in every one.
Someone showed me how to use that "loader" that came with my G20 one time...I can load as quickly without it as with it. I am not sure how it is supposed to save time, but then that is just me.
Can you guys who use it load your mags faster with it than without it?
This is what I use for all my semi-auto mags:
It is faster for me with the loader.
Call or write Glock and ask for a replacement 10mm loader.
In the meantime, take a mag to a shop that sells G20s and ask if you could try a loader from a new pistol and see if there is any difference.
It sounds like your loader may be a "short-shot", meaning that it does not contain all the polymer that it should.
The little post that sticks down inside the top of the 10MM loader should be about 1/2" long. How long is yours?
For me, using the loader is both faster and easier on my thumbs. At a steel or GSSF match, where I may shoot 400 rounds, it can be the difference between blisters and a nice day . . .
Mine works the same basic way. All you need to do is push the front of the shell down a little bit and it will load the next round just fine.
The last two rounds, I also push down on the front...good point...
glock sometimes tries to use too much plastic in their products...i know it has worked well with their firearms but the accessories i.e. mag loader, bore brush, cleaning rod....sould just be thrown aside for the cat to play with...all you need to load your mag is a little bit of ummmph...they will loosen out with use...
I just use my hands as well. Much faster for me that way.
I don't have a 10mm mag loader - so anyone who doesn't like the one they have feel free to send it to me!!!;P
