Magazine loaders of some sort have existed almost as long as there have been magazines that require mechanical intervention to load. Some of the earliest magazine loading tools were little more than metal devices for making it easier to press down on rounds as you loaded them. The use of stripper clips made for a fast mag loader- by comparison to loading rounds one at a time. Eventually we wound up with magazine quick loaders configured for a specific type of mag. But we never really had a universal speed loader. Until now. The Podavach ammo loader is the world’s first speed magazine loader that works with multiple types of semi automatic rifle magazines, including both the AR-15 and AK type rifles!
Born from a real need in the Ukrainian struggle against foreign invaders, the Podavach gun magazine loader can load AK-47, AK-74, AR-15/M16, Steyr AUG PMAG, and even Ruger Mini 14 magazines. Because the Ukrainian armed forces field multiple types of NATO and Eastern Bloc rifles, it was important to invent an easy magazine loader that could handle all of those different magazines. The end result was the Podavach ammo loader which is the first universal AR-15 and AK magazine speed loader.
Without a doubt, the Podavach is the best magazine loader on the market. As an AK-47 magazine loader, there is none finer. As an AR-15 speed loader, there is nothing better on the market. And as a universal magazine loader the Podavach cannot be beaten. The heart of the Podavach is the clever engineering that a AR 15 speed loader just needed a curved loading area to run their unique magnetically floating charger through. It is also a fact any rifle magazine loader needs the same basic design, so with classic Ukrainian ingenuity born out of real military need, the Podavach was engineered to hold 30 rounds of popular ammo, and fit the magazines for multiple firearms.
But let’s look a little closer at why the Podavach will be the last AR magazine loader you’ll need to own. Many .223 magazine loaders are simply a plastic tray that fits one type of magazine. If you are like many gun owners, you’ve got an AR-15, and an AK of some sort. Maybe you’ve even got a Mini-14, or are lucky enough to have a Steyr AUG.
Now I don’t know about you, but loading AK mags can be a literal pain. The heavy steel construction of most AK mags ensures that there are plenty of awkward sharp angles to mangle your thumb on, and the bakelite mags aren’t much of an improvement. AR mags are something of an improvement, but anyone who’s loaded a hundred rounds or more by hand can testify as to how irritating loading can get in a hurry. A fast mag loader that can handle both AK and AR mags quickly becomes a godsend to the gun owner. Now, if you only have an AK, or just an AR-15, you might not think a universal magazine loader is important. But even for the shooter with one rifle, a 5.56 speed loader that works with AK mags as well is a great way to make friends at the range, or be the popular guy when shooting with friends.
The Podavach is lightweight and made from sustainable Arctic Birch. Available in multiple waterproof finishes, it is easy to toss in a range bag, or carry in the retro inspired leather case. Any mag loader robust enough to handle AK-47 magazines will be the best speed loader for the AR15. What is really nice is that the Podavach handles multiple calibers. How many folks have guns in 5.56 and 7.62×39? A lot of us I bet. Or even just an upper for each caliber. Do you have one of those new AR’s that take AK mags? Because we all know 7.62×39 AR mags can be prone to jamming, AK mags are now no longer just for AK’s! This means more than ever you need a AR magazine loader that does just more than common AR mags.
Sitting down with the Podavach you see why this clever design is the ultimate AR15 magazine loader. The loading tray holds spare ammo, and is marked for round capacity for common calibers. Capable of handling common AR and AK calibers, it is far more than just a simple .223 speed loader. No, it is the ultimate mag loader for the AR-15, and AK-47 (or 74, or, well the list goes on and on!)
An AR-15 speed loader that also loads AK magazines is a money saver as well. Instead of having a 5.56 speed loader, and an AK speed loader, you only need to buy a single magazine speed loader. The Podavach universal speed loader is a must have for any shooter, gun collector, or collector of military gear. Battle tested, and proven by gun owners and avid shooters around the world, there is no finer crafted speed loader on the market today.
