To comply with California’s ridiculously ineffective SB 880 gun law, AR-15 owners must use a fixed magazine. With this configuration, shooters must disassemble the firearm in order to load a second magazine.
Gunsmiths across the country have been developing new concepts to sidestep these backwards laws. Mean Arms went the other direction and looked to past technology for inspiration.
Meet the MA Loader, a detachable polymer loading device that attaches to the weapon’s ejection port. What’s basically a 10-round stripper clip in a plastic guide lets the shooter rapidly feed fresh rounds into the fixed magazine. After the MA Loader is removed the bolt slams shut and chambers the first round.
Mean Arms said their goal was to “still enjoy the use of their AR-15s with minimal disruptions while fully complying with the new laws.” As long as legislators keep creating problems that shouldn’t exist, we can count on innovators like Mean Arms for brilliant solutions.
