    The Ultimate Clip Loader works by a screw that sticks out of the bottom of the loader that when the magazine is pushed into it the screw pushes the thumb button on the side of the magazine down. I don't see a way to do this unless you take a dremmel and cut a slot the length of the magazine and use a pin or something to push the spring in the magazine down so the bullets will just drop in as they do for the rugers ans most others but not all with a thumb button.

    Thanks for the great post and idea for the Jukermatic Speed Loader! I made one tonight and tried it out. One change I made was to use a straightened bobby pin instead of a nail. It greatly reduces the chance of the first cartridge catching on it and even if it does, a little jiggling is all that's needed to make the cartridge lay down. If I could get my hands on some very thin spring steel it would be even better. Give it a try!

    Great upgrade!

    Another change I made was to run a half-round rasp across the top, creating a finger notch.

    I decided to leave the idea and photos posted here for all to see. These aren't terribly hard to make once the template was finalized, and although I'd like to sell a million of 'em, I really can't see that many shooters thinking they couldn't make this themselves, and it's a difficult thing to advertise without showing how it works.

    Sure, someone might lift the idea, dress it up, and crank 'em out in China - but if any of you out there want one, send me a PM.

    Awesome idea! I was looking around for some material to make this, and found a pocket comb works great for the magazine I have. I may try to fashion something a little more badass, but until then this is my tactical comb.

    Excellent idea, and it's always good to look your best in a gunfight. :D

    A friend brings along his Marlin 795 alot when we shoot.I like how it feeds the first round by depressing the lever with your right thumb.The magazines are strong and built to last as well.Accurate little 22 rifle with just iron sites.


    Shooting is fun but reloading the magazines is a bummer.

    They're terrific little rifles, alright, good for a day hike and/or survival. Not much heavier than a good pellet gun.

    I just ran across this thread and it couldn't have come at a better time. I've got a 795 on it's way to me (& yes, with this year's rebate, it cost me $101 - shipping has gone up;))

    I did however, order some extra clips and they already came in. So last night I was loading up the extra magazines and it didn't take me long to start thinking there's got to be a better way. And now I've found it, thanks Junker for the idea. I'll definately be slapping me something together to accomplish this.

    Glad to hear it, thanks! The more I shoot my 795, the more I love it. :D

    Hey Juker, I was just wondering, it doesn't want to bind at all with the bottom only pushing down in the front?
    And then just wondering if maybe a flat surface on the bottom could be better with a rat tail file notch to make the pin groove?
    Just thinkin out loud here.

    BTW, I've been thinking I need to make one of these for my 7rd mags ever since you first posted it but I may never get around to it, so I'd probably be one of your first customers.
    Though it may be simple, especialy for 'do it yourselfers' like us, the market for something like this is often determined by cost vs. hastle!

    I want one but don't find the time!:eek:
    Again, just thinking out loud, and thumbs up!

    Easiest "wood working" project I ever did - took all of 15 or 20 minutes. All ideas gleaned from these Forums (especially Juker for kicking it off). Couple of comments: Photo #1 - thanks to wife for 'donating' a flat Bobbi Pin (complete with fake diamond); Photo #3 - under Spring compression - it will shoot out if your grip slips; Photo #6 - loading rounds without a little back pressure from the magazine spring does take a little getting used to. Here's the technique that seems to work best (at least for me). I hold the clip so that it's mostly on it's side and the front of the magazine is a little bit higher. Then I drop in the rounds and they kinda roll (on their sides) down the length of the magazine. With a little practice, you won't get {many} rounds standing upright.

    Thanks again to Juker for saving the tips of my fingers and thumb!

    Not sure what you mean about binding, fuze; it's only a couple of inches of depression - are you asking if the follower binds? I haven't encountered that problem, just give it a swift push and stick the nail/pin in the hole, only takes a couple of seconds ~

    Yeah, it was quick enough to make. Took me more time to find a scrap piece of wood that was the proper thickness than it did to make the thing. Anyway, now I can load those magazines up without killing my fingers. Getting that last (10th) round in, is still a pain. But like someone else said, maybe calling it good at nine rounds is 'good e'nuff'.

    I was actually just remembering back one time I pressed one in with a screwdriver just feel spring strength and the screwdriver was just a little off center and it caused the plastic piece to lean and bind up, it was just a thought.

    While my computer was down this week from a power out/surge I found this leftover piece of plexiglass used for a pc case window in a box of computer parts. Right away I thought of you know what, so I finaly did it. I use the 7 round mags for my old model 70 but I made it long enough to work on 10 round mags too, incase I ever pick up a 795.

    Thanks juker for sharing this!
    PS: I drilled a small hole under the peep hole in the mags so they could be filled all the way.

    I'd have to say that's the main reason it's important to make it out of something that's the proper thickness. The little piece of wood I used is just thin enough to clear the top entrance slot and yet wide enough to keep what you describe from happening.

    Just ordered five more magazines today... those things ain't easy to find at a decent price. With shipping, paid $13.73 each; that's up from $11.81 (incl shipping) that I paid last time for four of 'em.

    After kind of getting burned on a .380 Sterling (when they went out of business) and not being able to find any more magazines - I've got one that works but I'd like to find a few more - like someone once said, if you don't have magazines that function properly in your autoloader, then all you've got is a single shot firearm. Ever since then, I've made sure I order a few extras since I tend to keep my guns forever (I want to make darn sure, I can continue to shoot them well into the future).
