5 round black Zytel nylon magazine charger for FN/FAL
Posted by Charles Valenzuela on 15th Apr 2019
This loader is significantly lighter than the metal FAL mag loaders that I usually use. It seems well made and works very well with FN SCAR17 steel mags as well as Thermold and other polymer magazines for SCAR17. Fit to magazine is perfect, while fit to the ammunition is a bit tight at the cartridge case necks and at the cartridge case base as well. I expect that this will become less tight over time, but after loading four 5-rnd strippers in each of more than 50 magazines (that's more than 200 strippers of ammo) I can say that it hasn't become less tight, so it may take a while to loosen up. The loader accepts both US M14 strippers and Swedish 6.5x55 strippers equally well and is not too loose with the slightly smaller M14 strippers and not too tight with the slightly larger Swedish strippers. I am completely satisfied with everything except the price. $9.95 seems a bit steep when the steel FAL loaders can be had like-new for about $3 bucks.
