Speed Loader for GMII

Is there a speed loader that works with 1911 magazines, specifically a Gold Match II? My fingers don't always cooperate and my Uplula won't work.

I don't understand why your Uplula won't work with your 1911 magazines, what won't it do? I have 2 of them and they work on all of my magazines.

It doesn't seem to fit and I assumed (yeah I know) it was different somehow. It worked ok with the M9. Now I know it must be user error (not the first time for me). Oh well, at least I know now. Thanks! Wonder if I could convince my wife to load mags while I shoot?

I was going to say I used the Uplula yesterday to load about 38 magazines both compact and full size 1911's.

I use mine to load all my .45, 9mm and .380 magazines and if you were wondering about the 1911AI - Aligner Insert they sell you don't need it.

Great! If it can be done, I'll figure it out. My wife and I just got the TLE we ordered as a joint Christmas present. Heading to the range tomorrow and I'm sure I'll get the opportunity to give it another go. I think we'll take turns between the Gold Match and the TLE. To borrow from Hickok45, "Life is Good!"

You don't need the Aligner Insert but it makes things go much faster without any snags when using single stack mags. They come in a set of 2 and are easy to get on and off as you need it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Angry Knock Off

I retried on both Gold Match II and TLE. It is tight. Very tight! I'm thinking I might have gotten a knock off. Can't remember where I got it, but it was "on sale" for twenty something dollars. The more I think about it, the more convinced I am . I'm going to order one from a trusted site. Any suggestions for an honest site with a good price?
