They are unbelievable. I don't see why anyone reloads mags by hand anymore. That has to be the easiest thing in the world. Sorry I just had to voice my opinions on that.

I used one, it seemed cool, but it wore off so I didnt buy one.

It's a stupid "modern" gadget for pussys afraid of sore thumbs, like red dot optics. Only armchair commandos use them.

Are you talking about the novelty or did something break?
I think whoever invented those deserves a big pat on the back (and big paycheck).

I got FOX one for the Christmas exchange, it was drop shipped I've never even seen one in person. Since I'm about to build my first EBR looks like I'll be needing one

Who unloads mags with a tool other than an AR?

I figured I would try and get one for christmas. Low and behold I got one. I've only played with it twice so I can see how the novelty would wear off.

eh

it's not like AR mags are hard to load. Push 'em straight down.

Want sore thumbs? Load grease gun mags.

All mags are hard to load, if you load 30 at a time. Even AR mags. AK mags do bite my fingers, and the Lula is great on those.

Unload an AR mag, without a Lula (or without shooting it!), and see how easy and fast it is. I can dump a 30 rounder in about 5 seconds with a Lula if I need to.

Its 20 bucks. Its damn near the cheapest accessory you can buy for an AR. If you can afford an $800 rifle its kinda hard to argue against getting a $20 Lula.......

Stripper clips are much easier to use for loading IMO

I have two, one AR and one AK. Awesome device.

You havent learned how to do it just like a LULA using another round? Its acutally really easy. Hold the mag with the round facing down and push down on the round beneath the top one. This releases the pressure and the top round just falls out. Once you get the hang of it its really easy. I learned this from the really useful "cheap yet potentially valubale" thread.

+1 I rarely use it for loading but it rocks for unloading second only to the rifle itself for speed and ease
I know how to do the round or bic pen trick but the lula works so much better

Some of you guys would crap on Mother Theresa if given a chance...

+100 on the LULA!

Greatest accessory you can purchase for an AR or AK.

You mean there's still people without LULA's?!
Link Posted: 12/25/2005 10:26:43 PM EDT
I have a LULA. And a backup.
Link Posted: 12/25/2005 10:40:03 PM EDT
LULAs should be made for every kind of firearm mag!
