Loader Review by Kyle

Hello!

I just got my belt loader and was trying it out. I thought I would give you my first thoughts. And I do have a few things you might want to report. Unfortunately I have to one thing to warn against. Do not put the combined links through it. only the uncombined. Other wise it will snap the combining tabs right off :( so now I can only make a 200 round belt instead of the full 250 and there is no place for the starter tab to go now. So it will break the links.




Also, if they are not standard size and already slightly compressed it will bend them. 

However it do make loading easier. It would be advantageous if you had someone to toss them in straight one at a time (like most YouTube videos show). However until the belts are broken it I don't think it is a good idea to use the loader. Still a valuable collector piece that I will be keeping. It is just risky it seems.

Thanks,
Kyle


Kyle recently told me about a major find, IMO.  A heavy barrel for his UK59.  MCM fitted it (head spaced) with the receiver for about $175.  Kyle also sent this pic of a UK59:
