1: Anyone make them?

2: If so, who, and how much do they cost?

3: Is it legal to make them oneself?

A couple bof thoughts on the SG speedloader.

- They are fast but take pratice top reliably use them and even then they can be unreliable

- They require the use of a reciever mounted bracket that means you can't use any other reciever mounted devices like a sidesaddle.

- There has been some talk on the IPSC list that they cause the shells to go off during the loading process. I don't think that the evidence supports the claim but there are those who are still making it.

I have them for my Benelli M3S90 and my 1100.

Thanks for the info, guys. That TecLoader looks too clumsy, IMHO.

NJW, I would think that if there were incidents of shells going off, the mediots would work themselves into a lather about it.

I've started working on a design of my own. Should work pretty well, and not require any external brackets. It will have only one moving part, and that made of steel, so reliability shouldn't be a problem.

There is documentation of shells cooking off while using a TecLoader- one at a USPSA 3gun Nationals, one here in Colorado- happened to a personal acquaintance, and one related to me by a USPSA official. My acquaintance was injured and says that the matter was settled by the manufacturer for an undisclosed sum. Our local 3gun organization does not allow their use as a result.

Lovely. I'm unable to find any documentation, but my mind is pretty much made up.

Motorep, any idea how the kBs happened?

When the shells are leaving the loader and entering the magazine they have to make a turn, they don't go straight in, we've talked it over a lot and the best guess is the brass edge hitting the primer, setting off that shell and the others in line ahead of it. Could be a high primer, I don't know, I made up my mind long before we decided as a group to stop using the Tecloader. It made my shotgun stage times slower but I felt much better not looking at a face full of shells.

Oops, I didn't really mean the brass edge hitting the primer, I meant the leading edge of the shell hitting the primer, makes more sense that way, right?

Others have suggested that the problem lies with combining the TecLoaders with the DMW 'Easyloader' oversized carrier release for the Remington 1100/11-87, especially if the Easyloader has been slightly shortened. The theory is that a primer can hit the leading edge of the Easyloader if the TecLoader is being inserted at certain angles.
