Have you ever watched a torture test video on YouTube where the person on camera keeps getting handed magazine after magazine by someone off camera. They get to shoot and have fun while the Magazine Fairy keeps loading and handing over fresh, topped off magazines. Well, that is kind of the idea behind AFLoader – you shoot, it loads… It’s like an automated Magazine Fairy.
Tacoma, WA: AFA LLC, a company specializing in advanced firearm accessories, has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for its automated magazine loader, AFLoader.
AFLoader is the first automated pistol “speed loader” and supports nearly all double stack, single stack, and extended type magazines in 9MM, .40 and .45 calibers. The loader features removable ammunition hoppers, available in various capacities with as little as 75 rounds for a to the largest consumer version at 1000 rounds.
This final version is small at only 8.5” tall and weighs only 6.5LBS unloaded. Zero adjustment needed. Insert a magazine, select how many rounds to load and hit RUN. The loader automatically detects magazine type and length.
The built in LCD gives a real-time display of rounds remaining in the current hopper and rounds being loaded into the current magazine. The four front buttons allow the user to select how many rounds to load and saves magazines to memory for quick recall.
AFLoader will operate on both 120v/240v wall power or 12V lithium battery packs, which are user replaceable. At 1.7 rounds per second, AFLoader is faster than any handheld speed loader. The hands-free nature of the machine allows the shooter to continue training while another magazine is loading, allowing for zero down time with only two magazines.
The base model is priced at $189 with 3 user selected hopper capacities/calibers, one battery pack and charger. It carries a 3 year limited warranty covering all defects or malfunctions.
