    This glock speed loader is not so much a speed loader, as it is more of a thumb saver. It is quite cumbersome to use due to its small size, especially for someone with big hands. It ends up taking longer than handloading can take because you need to push the previous round down with the new round even with the loader pressed all the way down. And then once the new round gets past the lips of the magazine, you need to carefully lift up the loader and push the round all the way down.

    I was initially worried about the quality based on the price. I am glad my concerns were for nothing.
    Since the purchase, I have used this to load two different manufacturers magazines (OEM Glock and Magpul) with two different kinds of rounds (both steel jacket and brass) in 9mm. I didn’t have a single issue using this. Over the course of two different loading sessions and one trip to the range, I have loaded easily 500 rounds through this into my various mags so far, and it has worked flawless. I highly recommend this speed loaded for any Glock owner.

    The product sent is not Glock OEM, as explicitly stated in the item description. It is made by SGM Tactical and the plastic has a slightly thinner feel to it. It seems to work fine, but who knows if it will hold up like the Glock OEM.
