Im impressed , shot the new Sig 365 with 12 round mags I just got

I had some effort to load the mags the springs are stiff I have a MakerShot mag loader that helped, but Im told by members on Sig Board the Maglula Uplula is the loader to get...so I ordered one. ( OEM 10 rounders are just as hard on the thumb )

The Gun ran flawlessly used Blazer 115 Grain brass case & some Sig brand brass 115 grain. I used 7 yards and cut center in good group one handed.

neat neat neat little shooter  :D

I was surprised when I first got my Shield, that I actually couldn't get more than about 5-6 rounds in the magazine with my bare hands. Had to get a magazine loader to have a fully loaded magazine!

My G22 mags I need help the last 2 or 3 rounds. I have the Glock helper but usually just push thru on them to get loaded.

The same thing happened to me with a 9mm SCCY CX-1 that I bought. After shooting it for a while, I was able to load the magazines without the mag loader.

I had a similar problem with two new mags for my Smith 539.  Was looking for a mag loader assist, but managed to get all rounds loaded.  Once I let them sit for a few weeks loaded, they seemed to soften up and now loading is stiff, but very manageable. 

After hearing some of the experiences here with the Sig 365,  I'm leaning very strongly to getting one to replace the 539 as my carry firearm,  Maybe a Christmas present to myself.

Here in Reno we have gone over 30 days without any rainfall, and it looks the same for the next 10 days.   Humidity is sitting at around 15% and temps in the low to mid 90's, I?m just holding my breath on the start of a mess of wildfires.  So far so good!

RussT, I'm surprised you had that problem with the 539 magazines, I have a 39-2 that I really like shooting, and I've never had any problems loading the mags by hand, I have 5 or 6 mags for it. I expect they are the same magazine. That's why the Shield surprised me, it's the first time I came across any that were that hard to load.

These were not original S&W mags, but three I got from Midway as extras to aid in the range time for my CCW quals.  They now reside in my desk drawer (unloaded) as backup for the two originals,

Only for my carry guns-2 spares for the Shield, and one for the LCP. The Smith 39, and the .45 aren't carry guns for me, they don't stay loaded.

I have loaded magazines for my Colt 1911 G'ovt, My Browning HiPower, my Kahr K-9 and Ruger SR9c, The Ruger is my EDC, but in the colder months I might strap on the 1911 or HiPower. The Kahr is going to be my Son once he gets his pistol permit.

Evening all.

Eventful day in Billings today. Not really. Went to breakfast with my girlfriend and then to work. Had to call the police on a guy stalking a 13 year old girl. Hopefully that comes to an end.  I had my 32, but it was one time I wish I had a 9mm.

On the matter of guns and magazines, I keep one spare magazine for my Beretta loaded. I only have 1 for the 32, and that lives in the gun.

Thanks for participating in the un official poll... I keep loaded magazines available for the ones I am not carrying also. Even a few AR mags. I Don?t loaded the 60 round Pmag or the drum mag. Those were mis spent purchases between 2008 and 2016.



Coffee is up.

 We were blessed with some rain last evening and again this morning.

Well probably have to feed the goats some hay this morning. They don?t like getting wet.

I don't keep any loaded AR mags, since I've still only got half an AR, I'm in no hurry to load mags. Be plenty of time for that whenever I finally get an upper.

I received the Maglula UPLULA loader I ordered Sunday for Amazon?

The Maglula UPLULA loader is the BOMB !  works a champ ?.
solved the stiff Sig Mags- loading all 12 round in about 18 seconds.
and no issue inserting in the mag well either ( like I had with the MakerShot loader and could only load 11 rounds  )
