1858 Cylinder loading stand?

Finally had some time to go out to the range yesterday, nice and warm, no wind and no one else there. I shot the 1858 Remington for a couple of hours and had a great time. By the end the palm of my hand was red from loading the cylinder with the loading lever. I think I will buy one of those cylinder loading stands and save my hand. I have looked on a few websites and they range from 20 to 50 dollars. Is there a brand/style that I should avoid and where did you buy yours at?

Avoid this one:


Buy this one:


The top one has no adjustment for cylinder size (diameter or height) or caliber; the bottom one comes with different jags for different calibers and is fully adjustable to fit any cylinder.

Thanks for the info, I will get the bottom one, for the extra cash it certainly looks a lot sturdier.

I have one like the top one. I only load 44 cal so don't need extra bits. Very easy to take to the range and works like a champ. If you need to reload several calibers, then the bottom one would be worth it.
