Default M1 Carbine Magazine Loading Tool - Comments Please

There are a couple of M1 carbine magazine loading tools out on the market, would anyone like to comment about their experiences with the different makes/models? Which work well, and which are a waste of money for starters. Thanks!

I find the carbine mags easy to load; no mag loader needed.

Like sigman, I don't have any experience with loaders because I have found all three types of mags to be Verne easy to manually load. I have found that the 1 or 2 in the 30 rounders can be slightly more difficult but certainly not that hard.

I do use stripper clips occasionally.

Same here -- very, very easy to load .... stripper clips do work well!! I would believe any "loader" would be a waste of good money -- money could be used to buy more AMMO!!
