  • Patent number: 10598456
    Abstract: A loader (10) facilitates loading loose rounds into a firearm magazine (60). It comprises a body (12) that fits on and is locked to the magazine using a locker (40). A spring-loaded press (30) with a plunger (34) is coupled to the body and is tiltable from above to between the magazine's lips (64). To load a round, the user fits the loader onto and locks it to the magazine and forces the spring-loaded press down so the plunger pushes the topmost round and/or follower down enough to insert a new round, case first, until it meets the plunger. Then the user reduces force on the press to allow the plunger to be lifted up so that the plunger is cleared from the magazine, whereupon the user can nudge the partially inserted round rearwardly to its final position in the magazine.

  • Patent number: 10539383
    Abstract: An unloader (10) for firearm magazines (40) has a plate hingedly coupled to a back of the magazine so the plate can be moved against or tilted away from the magazine. The plate has a projecting plunger at its top that can push a round out of the top of the magazine when the plate is moved against the magazine's back. The plate is hingedly coupled to the magazine by holding it with a thumb or finger or by hinging it to an adapter that is coupled to the magazine. A user holds the adapter or the plate against the magazine and moves the plate between open and closed positions. In the closed position the plunger forces the top round forward and out from the lips of the magazine and in the open position the plunger allows the magazine's follower to push a second round into the top position.

  • Patent number: 9599416
    Abstract: A device to aid in loading cartridges into a pistol magazine, comprised of an upper section having a top surface for applying downward force with the user's thumb and a roughly rectangular lower section for contact with the cartridges within the magazine. The rectangular lower section is divided into a forward “pushing” section and a rearward “retaining” section by a slot which slidingly engages the rear wall of the magazine, thus providing stability and requiring only downward force to operate. The device is fitted with a hole through the upper section through which a cord, cable, or chain may be affixed, allowing the device to be conveniently carried on a key ring or on an attachment point on a gear bag.

  • Patent number: 9404697
    Abstract: A bullet loader method and apparatus that enables a user to easily load bullets into a gun magazine. The gun magazine is inserted into the apparatus magazine opening. Bullets are individually loaded into the bullet loader with a grooved cam, so that the individual bullets rest in the groove. The cam is rotated so that the bullet travels within the groove(s) of the cam and pushed with a cog attached to the end of the groove into the magazine. The bullet is pushed into the magazine with both a downward and inward force to overcome the spring resistance of the magazine.

  • Patent number: 9103613
    Abstract: A multiple cartridge assembly is described which facilitates speed loading of a four barrel less than lethal gun. Four less than lethal cartridges are attached to the multiple cartridge assembly and arranged to correspond with the breech of a four barrel less than lethal gun. Each less than lethal cartridge is constructed with a projectile which when fired has a velocity which will not kill an individual struck by the projectile. The less than lethal cartridge has a rim which is deeper or thicker than a rim on a conventional lethal cartridge. The caliber of the cartridge is also selected so that regular lethal ammunition is not available in this caliber. The preferred caliber of the less than lethal cartridge is 0.490. The less than lethal cartridge contains a polymeric projectile or alternatively, a sealed filled polymeric pouch containing shot therein.
