Your new Ruger Semi-Auto should have came with this gizmo...

It is a magazine loader. It goes on the magazine when reloading it.

Apply downward pressure...

Slide next round into magazine...

Lift reloader up...

Push the new round all the way into mag...


Repeat until mag is fully loaded.

I hope this helps.

I use the plastic ones you can get at the gun shows, a real thumb saver especially on the 15 and 13 roundres in 9 mm
Ditto on the plastic ones. I bought a few for the kids and I for .22 MKI and MKII's plus the bigger bores. The only way to go.

I used one yesterday.

they are handy for sure, I load up my mags the night before I go to the range, while watching John Wayne

You can buy extras from Ruger or Numrich gun parts.... I've got about 3 extra's... one in my range bag... one in my gun cabenet with extra mags and one in each of my ammo boxes of 9mm.

I feel like Mr. Dumb A_ _ ! I thought it was something that was to be used with the lock. I have always used the plastic ones of these double stack mags......Now that I look at the thing....of course...of course !!!

You know I have an older Beretta Jaguar 22 that I have loved for years. But I can't find a reloader or auto loader for the mags and rip my thumbnail up every time I load it. I love the ones that came with the 345 and 95.

Picked up my S&W M66 to go to shoot one Sunday afternoon, and after about 20 rounds-the trigger pulled double-action-the hammer and cylinder din't do nuttin'!!! I went to work that night with my Combat Commander in my duty holster---anything made by man can go thub....for CCW permit holders...that's the best argument for carrying a backup-if we need it-we ain't got nary a radio to call the cavalry...it's us and the BGs-usually to the conclusion of the action...give that some thought....and a back-up and a few reloads don't seem near so heavy.....

Oh give me a revolver home, home on the range No Jams or sore thumbs either!
Revolvers can jam too.
Only if you fire a squib, or have a fouling buildup from shooting the "Holy Black" without lube on the bullet or cylender face

Not even close to true...witness my experience above, and I've heard lots of others...some couldn't cock them, some couldn't open them(that's happened to me...) don't put your faith in the machine...it can and will fail....
