Thunderstruck Loaders

thunderstruck_banner-5x2My latest project has been a product design for loading AR-15 and AK-47 magazines.  If you have ever loaded one of these magazines by hand then you know the pain your thumbs feel after your have loaded a few 30 round magazines before going to the range.  My business partner saw a youtube video on the internet of a guy who had made a system out of wood.  As it turns out there were a number of wooden designs on the internet that go way back.  Though the wood design was great, it wasn’t that durable if you wanted to carry it around with you out to the range.  You also had to keep waxing the slide area.  So I sat down and pulled out my CAD/CAM software and came up with what I thought would be a better design.  After milling out a dozen or more of them and putting them through testing I finally came up with one that worked every time and would last.  My design in currently being sold by Thunder Struck Loaders at
