Hi, My friend asked how I could justify such a purchase. He's in his late 60's and just bought a new Chevy Corvette,. I guess it depends on your out look. I love mine but found that a little grease was needed on the part that ejects the clip. Works like a charm, regards, Mike

The first thing I did was clean the white lithium grease off and put a light coat of Mobil 1 synthetic grease on everything that slides. I put a coat of Mobil 1 synthetic oil on the ejection spring. I also put a very light coat of oil on the track the rounds slide down to be loaded, to help them slide easier. (Before anyone says anything, note the coat of oil is so light, there is no detectible residue transferred to the rounds being loaded into the enbloc.)

Everything moves very smoothly, with minimal effort. I am impressed with the quality of the machining and welds. The only thing I can foresee that may ever need to be replaced is the ejector spring, and that can be easily removed and replaced. I really like that it is parkerized as well.

I view the one time cost of the loader as minimal considering the number of years I will be using it, and how much time and discomfort it will save me. Makes it very worth every penny for me.

Glad you like your purchase as well Mike.

Smile Just bought one

I think it's pretty neat. As for justification I am hard pressed to justify my M1 Garands.

Ya $425 is way too steep for me. But it is pretty neat. Would sell a bunch if they were like $100-$125

With all of the materials and work it takes to make these, he isn't making a dime at $425. I have one too and it's worth every penny, I just wish I had more ammo to load.

Impressive and ingenious tool. I never knew something like that existed for loading enbloc clips.

Then maybe the price will go down!.

I still want one, but clips are easy to load.

Maybe some old ordnance unit has one in the back of the supply shed...

Hi, I can only say that this thing is awesome. Yes it is expensive. There are numerous plans on line; I even saw one made of wood. Sadly I am not handy so this is beyond my ken. I have used this and it's a thing of beauty. John C. Garand designed this and it was designed to use Springfield 1903 clips. I would have liked a bigger wooden base and may change it in the future. I can say this is a want not a need and if your handy make your own competition is the life's blood of commerce, regards, Mike
