Lyman Products Introduces New Competition Aluminum Speedloaders
Pachmayr’s new Competition Aluminum Speedloaders for revolvers are precision CNC machined from solid aluminum. The Speedloader body is cut in a polygon shape, which produces the smallest possible outside dimensions and allows it to easily fit revolvers, such as Smith & Wesson J- ,K- ,and L-frame revolvers, plus the Ruger LCR and other popular models. The Speedloader is also equipped with a rattle-eliminating O-ring, which contacts the cartridge bases and firmly holds the rounds in place. Cartridges are then released with a simple twist of the large, knurled knob. “Revolver speedloaders have been around for a very long time,” Trevor Mullen, VP of Global Marketing and Business Development for Lyman Products, explained. “They offer a convenient way to carry extra rounds and make for a quick and easy reload. What sets the Pachmayr aluminum Speedloader apart from the competition are the CNC machining and the polygonal shape. Plus, the aluminum body keeps the Speedloader relatively light weight at 2 ounces without ammo, yet durable for years and years of continuous use.”
