    Magazine loader recommendation 45 acp single stack

    Hi, my fingers aren't what they used to be, I'm looking for recommendation on a magazine loading tool for a standard 1911 7 shot single stack. There are several out on the market. I'm looking for personal, hands on experience.

    Thanks.

    Up-lula. I tried one,, and now own 4 different models. I have also had MANY ladies in my clinics like them well enough to buy their own.

    I have the Lula but my favorite for single stack 1911 mags is the HKS.
    Keep moving forward!

    A fourth vote for the Up Lula.

    It works so much better than the original No1 MkI Thumb or the No1 MkII Gorilla Thumb

    Make it an even +10. The UpLula is as easy as it gets.

    Thanks for all the recommendations, looked at the prices on both the Uplula and the HKS, was about to order an Uplula based on the comments here then I found a HKS for $6.00 delivered on Amazon. Chose to go that route. I got it a couple of days ago and seems to work well. If I decide I need a better one (or this one breaks, it appears a little flimsy) I'll probably spend the extra bucks on an Uplula.

    Thanks again for the recommendations.
