"The Glock mag loader I got with a 23 folded in half and I tore half my thumbnail off on the mag feed lip.
It went in the trash as soon as I stopped bleeding & cussing!"
That's odd. I've loaded nearly 26,000-rounds of ammo into Glock magazines, and never had a problem. I've even ordered back up loaders, in case one goes missing.
They're incredibly simple gizmos. They're not loaders really... They assist in loading.
The "fin" pushes the round in the magazine down, clearing enough room to fit the next round beneath the magazine's metal feed lips. You do the feeding.
I had to show Judy and my kid how to do this, as they were making way too much of it. They both laughed when they realized how simple it is! Duh! :D
It works perfectly. ;)

Even with some "mileage" on my mags, I find the 14th and 15th rounds somewhat difficult to load with fingers alone. Try the HKS magazine speedloader - it has worked well for me and only costs a ten-spot. The model you want is the GL940.
