MA LOADER / LOCK

  • Do I need a special or modified 5.56/.223 Upper Receiver to use the MA Loader?
    You do not need a special or modified 5.56/.223 Upper Receiver to use the MA Loader. It is designed to work with all MIL Spec upper receivers.

  • I have seen the MA Feed Ramp used on rifles in some of your recent social media postings. Do I need to purchase the MA Feed Ramp to use the MA Loader on my MIL Spec rifle?
    No modification to your AR-15 is required to use our MA Loader!  There continues to be some confusion floating around the internet about it being required to modify your rifle to use our MA Loader. Our MA Feed Ramp is optional and no modification is necessary! You do NOT need to purchase our MA Feed Ramp to use the MA Loader on your MIL Spec rifle or to modify your rifle in any way! The MA Feed Ramp is strictly OPTIONAL if you are looking to slightly improve your reload speed, but again, it is not necessary.

  • Does use of your MA Loader always advance the bolt and load the first round during removal?
    As the MA Loader is still so new, there is a misconception that it is required to always automatically advance the bolt when the loader is removed. This is a popular loading action, but not required. We recommend you hold the bolt stop during removal of the MA Loader, especially in pinned magazine setups (as we do). This will keep the bolt in-place following loader removal and allow you to inspect / advance the bolt as you normally would after reloading. This is simple to do and a comfortable loading action. This removes virtually any possibility for a misfeed. But we have had amazing reliability during testing with the “auto-advance” action, which saves a step during range ops. Please try both ways during your testing and reporting.

  • If I install the MA Lock Device on my 5.56/.223 MIL Spec rifle to make it permanent, can I remove the MA Lock at some point in the future should I move to a different state?
    Yes, our MA Lock device will be removable WITH disassembly of the action which is a required action to maintain legality in some states. This process will in no way harm your rifle.

  • Will the MA Loader work function with .300 ACC Blackout ammunition?
    Regarding the 300 AAC Blackout, we have had mostly good results using the AR-15 MA Loader (5.56/.223) with those rounds. Because the profile of the bullet is a little different, we have seen that there is a chance the bullets can fall out easier. Depending on your specific ammo and rifle you may not notice any issue. Those issues have all been with fully retaining the bullets when not loading. We have had no issue loading using those rounds in the 5.56/.223 MA Loader. We are looking at having a specific 300BLK MA Loader just so it works perfectly as designed. Feel free to try it out and it may be fine with your configuration.

  • Once I have fixed my magazine in place with the MA Lock, can I remove my magazine for maintenance or a type 3 malfunction?
    If you are interested in just being able to remove the magazine either for cleaning or due to a failure, it is possible to remove the magazine without removing the MA Lock.  You may notice in our MA Lock YouTube Installation video that you are able to insert a magazine with the lock installed.  Because the magazine and mag catch have a taper in the insertion direction, it will slide into the lower and latch.  To remove the magazine once installed, you will need to remove the magazine base plate and drop the guts (spring and follower) of the magazine out the bottom.  Once you have the empty shell of the fixed magazine, you can insert a small wedge on the left side (mag catch side) of the magazine from the top of the firearm.  (Note: We use an inexpensive 1" all-polymer putty knife that can be found at any hardware store.  Don't use anything metal, which could possibly damage your firearm).  This will squeeze the magazine enough that you can slide it out of the lower receiver.

  • Are MA Loaders and MA Locks capable of being shipped to CA or NY?
    Here is our most recent take with regards to CA DOJ and the NY Safe Act.  After reading the most recent version of the new CA DOJ rules regarding assault rifles, it is our belief that by fixing your magazine in place with our MA Lock, you no longer possess an assault rifle. Therefore any "evil" features you keep on your rifle become a moot point.  We designed our MA Lock product as a complete fixed magazine solution.  Once installed, it cannot be removed with a tool, which satisfies CA and NY state law.  We have no issue shipping to customers in CA or NY.  Our MA Loader has no metal parts and renders the rifle mechanically impossible to fire while attached to your upper receiver. It is not by definition a magazine under California law. It is a loading assist device.

  • Will the MA Loader function on left handed upper receivers?
    Our MA Loader unfortunately will not function correctly on a left side ejection port. We do expect at some time in the future to reverse mold our MA Loader specifically for left handed individuals. Please check back often to our website for new products announcements and pre order products.
