Has anyone found a magazine loader that works well with the MP40?



I use the HKS magazine loaders for my 1911 and Beretta 92, those things really help save your fingers when loading magazines, I've tried the HKS 941 that I use for my Beretta 92 and it "kind of" works, but it's not the right size for the MP40's magazines.



Some other size might work better, but the MP40 is still new enough it isn't listed in their product index, and there isn't any link on HKS website for contact info.



Any ideas? :?:

The glock HKS loader appears to work. I don't really bother with one though, tried a shooting buddy's for about 6 rounds, so YMMV with extended use.

Went by the store today and checked them out, the HKS GL-940 fits the MP40 pistols, it is intended for Glock pistols.

Who makes the "Original Super Loader?" If not, maybe I can buy an XD one, my kiddo's fingers wear out half-way through filling a mag.

Think you missed the "NOT" in DO NOT work. :wink:

Took one out of the package and tried it on an MP9 mag at the gun store, it does indeed work.

I got the GL-940 and played with it a little today with Saf-T-Trainers and Pachymar trainers It works well for the first few rounds, but then when I deprss the lever, the follower and rounds start tilting down too much in the back and you have to "help" it by being ready to press down on the front of the top loaded round. If you don't, it will bind in the tube. I'm wondering if S&W went to a follower design that isn't as stable as their other double stack mags. No big deal, it's just not perfect. This is the first time I've used one, maybe they all work that way?

I've noticed that, it loads about the first 10 well, but at 11 or 12 you start getting the tilt and have to help it by pushing down on the bullet, not perfect but still a lot easier than loading by hand. As the MP pistols get out into peoples hands more they might bring out a loader specifically for the MP series. I've checked HKS website and they don't have any contact information, I'd like to send them a suggestion on that point.

I just picked up a factory Glock 17, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35 mag loader, it works great for both the M&P40 and M&P9C, ahhh perfection!
