Pardini HP Magazine Loader

Post by javaduke on Sat Sep 01, 2018 4:39 pm

I shot my 32ACP Pardini this morning for the first time, the gun is great, but it takes me forever to load those magazines, my thumbs are all sore and scratched by those magazine sharp edges. I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried any mag loader with those mags? Will the BabyUpLULA work? I know Pardini lists 32 magazine loader on their website, but $44 plus shipping for a piece of plastic looks a bit steep.

UniqueTek makes one for the 22 that sells for $20, it's 3D printed plastic, they work great I bought 2, one for the range bag and one for my shoot box.  They are pretty tough I have over 3,000 rounds loaded with them.  I'm not sure how much bigger the 32 mag is but I'd buy a 22 version to modify to see if it will work.  OR whoever printed them could probably make them for the 32.  They might need a mag to work with, I'd negotiate for a freebie or 2 if I loaned them a mag.

I did make one before I bought the UniqueTek one.  1.5" x 2" x 1/4" aluminum flat stock I had.  Cut out a cardboard template and transferred it to the flat stock used a drill and a Dremel then filed it.  Pretty rough looking but it worked.

I use the one that Pardini USA, works very well for both 32 long and ACP. The “tab” on the front top of the Pardini mag prevents the Baby Uplulu (and any of my other ‘over the magazine loaders”) from fitting over the magazine. Plus, my 32 magazines do not have the follower button on the side like the 22 magazine, which is what my 22 loader pushes against.  The pardini 32 loader presses directly on the follower from the top.

From what I have seen from 3D printers, it seems like it would be challenging to make something that way that would last?

I looked into the pardini made one, it was crazy expensive. I found a guy on target talk that 3d printed them for super cheap. Let me see if I can find the email. Works great. My dad and I have been using it for over a year.

The UpLULA 9mm to 45 ACP works for my 32 ACP mags

Post by CraigB5940 on Sat Sep 01, 2018 9:00 pm

I made a loader out of 1/4 aluminum for my 22 mags just like the one shown above. I used my Bridgeport mill to rout out the profile-it was pretty easy to make. It won't work on the 32 ACP mags as noted above because it contacts the button on the side of the 22 mag and no such button exists on the 32 ACP mags.  

Much to my surprise, the UpLULA  9mm to 45 ACP universal loader works for my 32 ACP mags-it just barely fits, the depressor tab width is exactly the same as the follower but it works well once you get used to it. I guess this one works because it is larger and allows the mag to slide into the loader where the baby model does not have clearance for the front magazine lip that sticks out as Greg Benner noted above.

Andrew at Precision Target Pistol Grips makes them.  3 for $27 shipped.  Not sure if they will work on the .32.

Hm, no, according to the description, it only works on SP magazines, not HP. Same is the UniqueTek version.

I csnt find it anywhere. The target talk forum must purge their old sales because the list only goes back a few months. You might have better luck posting an Iso 3d printed Pardini Hp magazine speed loader over there.

When I first started shooting .32acp I had the same problem.  Try this: 

(As a righty...)
1.) Hold magazine in left hand.
2.) Using your right thumb, press the rim of a round downward near the middle of the mag and push just enough to engage the rim under the magazine lips.
3.) Slide the round fully back by placing your left thumb on the front half of the cartridge and push.  Simply use friction between your thumb and front half of the  brass/bullet.  If you keep your left thumb on the front half of the cartridge, you'll never contact the sharp magazine protrusion.

This is actually quite efficient because you can orient the next bullet in your right hand while you are sliding the round with your left.  It takes about 7 seconds to load 5 rounds starting from empty mag in left hand and five rounds in right  hand.

I have and use UpLula for loading my 9mm 17rd, 20rd, 32rd mags.  In my opinion, a mag loader for a loading the 5rd HP magazine will slow you down.

I'm not trying to talk anyone out of a toy.  Just offering a technique for you to try and decide what you like.

I picked up this loader for a couple bucks at a gun store. Did a little dremel work and it works fine. They sell loaders like the one I have on ebay.

Do you know which model you have? They list several on their web site: https://www.adcosales.com/what-superthumb-fits/

None of them are a perfect fit. I would try the ones that fit compact single stack 9mm like Ebay #  252980672388      
A little dremel work and you should be fine.

This is the one I have. I had to cut off the bottom and relieve a lot from the inside:

This one might not take as much modification. You will still have to cut the bottom off:

Thanks, folks, I ordered one, hope it will make it easier.
@Glen I tried your technique, it kinda worked Smile But it is still a bit tricky and slow. I also noticed that sometimes the rim of the top round goes beyond the rim of the round underneath and if this happens, the bolt doesn't go forward and the round jams in the magazine and I have to pry it out with a small screwdriver. It seems like Pardini could've done a better job designing those magazines. Just sayin'.
