GATT Loader™ utilizes a revolutionary, patented method for loading cartridges in magazines. It’s unlike any other thumb-loading device! No longer do gun owners have to load cartridges individually, or experience difficulty and hand pain that are common with thumb loading. With the GATT Loader™ Lock-N-Load System, it’s easy!
The GATT Loader™ Lock-N-Load System requires three components to ensure its success—the GATT Loader™ locking pin and plunger, and a magazine with “through holes” (a viewing hole that allows you to see through the magazine to determine the number of rounds left in the magazine).
While most 9mm, .38, .40 and .45 magazines have through holes, or what are also known as “witness holes,” some may not. Before using GATT Loader™ be sure to check your magazines to see if they have a through hole closest to the base (closed end). See figure 1. If your magazine has through holes, you’re ready to get started using GATT Loader™. To learn how to use GATT Loader™, read the instructions below or watch our video.
No through holes? No problem!
For magazines that do not have a through hole, it’s easy to modify them. Simply create your own by drilling a 1/16th hole using a metal bit. If the magazine has one hole but does not go through to the other side, simply use this hole as your guide to drill through the other side. If the magazine has no hole(s), mark slightly above where the last cartridge sits in the magazine. Make sure the hole is large enough for the pin to be inserted and push through to the other side.
Every GATT Loader™ comes with a locking pin and plunger. To successfully use GATT Loader™, make sure your magazine has through holes. To learn more about through holes click here. Below are easy step-by-step instructions on how to use GATT Loader™. For more detailed instructions, check out our video!
Step 1: Load your first cartridge
Step 2: Use the GATT Loader™ plunger to push down the cartridge and compress the spring to the bottom of the magazine
Step 3: Use the GATT Loader™ pin by placing it in the through hole to “LOCK” the first cartridge in place
Step 4: “LOAD” or drop the remaining cartridges into the magazine.
Step 5: Release the pin and you’re ready to shoot!
Why do people go to the shooting range? To shoot their guns! So why stand around reloading your magazines when you’d rather be firing at the target? With GATT Loader™, gun owners will spend less time loading their magazines and more time enjoying the sport! For range owners, GATT Loader™ means more ammunition sales and happier customers!
