    What's the best speedloader for the Ruger 22/45 lite pistol?

    I have read mixed reviews for the HKS 22-B speedloader that it does and does not work with the 22/45.

    I can't really seem to find any speedloaders for the 22/45 when I search they all seem to be for the Mk 1 and Mk 2

    I'm not sure about commercial loaders because I made my own out of a piece of scrap plastic. I just drilled out a slot slightly wider than the magazine.

    Make one from scrap plastic or check you local LGS. Maybe one of the lowest cost gun related accessories out there.

    I don't use speed loaders. the round disk on the side of the magazine attached to the follower acts as a speed loader by relieving spring tension, you literally just drop the rounds into the magazine and slide the disk down.

    actually no, no joke at all, my post is 100% serious and to the point. a speed loader with any ruger MK 22lr pistol is a waste of time and money as far as I'm concerned. the 22/45 takes seconds to reload and is easier than any other handgun I've tried... and I've sampled a couple dozen in my day.

    This is true.

    If the button bothers you, try flipping it to the other side so you are using your thumb rather than finger to hold it down.

    +1 A little thumb power is all you really need.

    I have a cheapie HKS loading tool. I think it cost about $4.

    All it does is hold down the follower button so that you don't have to hold it down with a thumb or finger as you drop rounds in the mag.

    It works very well and is equally small, easily fitting in the Mk2's box.

    Once you try the McFadden Ultimate Cliploader, all the little plastic thingies that help push the button, and the comments about using your fingers, are simply ridiculous. There is only one SpeedLoader for the Ruger series pistols... McFadden

    The first speedloader I had was one I made.I drilled a hole in a piece of metal the same size as the button.Then I bent it and polished all the rough edges off.Worked like a charm.Next speedloader I bought is a u shaped plastic with a button slot on each side and 2 grooved tabs at the top.That worked even better than my homebuilt one.They wee available at gunshows for 2 for $5.One would usually see them in a gallon jug.
    The McFadden really is the Ultimate clip loader.Works like a dream.
    I wish it were made out of better plastic and didn't cost $30.

    Yup! And it also works for the Browning Buckmark.
