The compact size of the M12 Sidewinder perfectly fits inside any double M4 mag pouch to easily be carried into the field.

Keep Your Speedloader With You at All Times
If you are like most airsoft players, you dread the time consuming, tedious task of loading your mid caps while preparing for a game. You probably plan on loading your magazines in the staging area. You may keep a thumb loader on you. Maybe its on your vest or in your pack but it will only load most of one magazine before you have to refill it. The M12 Sidewinder was created out of the thinking that if most speedloaders were more practical, then they could be used in game. We took a different approach in how we created our product. Not only did we take the time to alleviate some of the flaws in other loaders, we also focused on airsoft play itself. We wanted to make sure the experience our users received was an end-to-end positive experience, not just another thumb cramping one. We want to give our users the motivation to keep playing and have more time for what they love!
The current M12 Sidewinder prototype can hold up to 1600 rounds. The production speedloader is to be determined. Sliding door for easy refilling.
The compact size allows the M12 Sidewinder to be used anywhere you'd use a traditional speedloader. It fits perfectly inside any double M4 mag pouch to easily be carried into the field.

This is a perfect product. It's wind perfectly without losing any bbs or having any problems with feeding bbs in the magazine. It loads every single bb possible. It's a great product. I would definitely recommend it.
Makes loading magazines easy and fast. Have had no problems with the product since I purchased it. I would recommend this to everyone.
One of the best creations for airsofters to this day. The ease of use and quickness of this product makes loading all those low cap and midcap mags a breeze. 4 seconds to load one magazine. Done.
I would say this is currently the BEST speed loader on the market right now if you use M4 magazines. I upgraded from the Elite Force SL14, and this thing blows it out of the water.
What you want to do when you first get this is adjust the black nut on the spinning arm accordingly. The adjustment allows you to set what pressure you want the clutch to slip and stop feeding when it feels enough tension when the magazine is full, mine was screwed in too much which didn't stop loading once the mag was full. Once you dial that in perfect for your mags, you can just wind away non-stop without worry.
I resisted buying one of these when it first came out, as I was very turned off by the high price point. But after throwing yet another crappy $10 speed loader in the trash, I figured I would give it a shot. Best $60 I've ever spent on airsoft. For any and all of you players who run mid caps, this is a game changer. It takes what was once a long process of loading mags and turns it into a easy, painless and quick experience. Get one, you won't regret it.
I received my M12 loader Friday just past (December 11,15) and was very happy with my first impression of it in the box it came in. Took it out and grabbed my TM Pmag recoil mags and had to test it out. Before with the other speed loader from EF that I call the shotgun I would only be able to fill the mags to about 90 bbs then switch over to a normal speed loader and fill it the rest of the way up to 120 rounds. Took way to much time. Now I took the M12 filled it with 125 bbs and inserted the mag and noticed that the Pmags didn't engage the lock system in the M12. Not a big deal I just put the mag against my chest and started winding. After about 5 and a half turns the clutch system stopped allowing me to load the mags. Pulled the mag out and counted the remaning bbs and the M12 had loaded my mags full. So I then started to load almost every mag in my house in about 10 minutes I had filled every mag minus my GBBR mags and noticed I had loaded about 8000 bbs in 10mins. Very pleased with this loader and can't give it enough top marks. And to be one of the first few people in Ontario Canada to have one made the Sunday just past a lot of fun showing the crowd of people how it works and filling there mags in seconds.
