I have a type 2 I believe,I have tried to load it with my repo loader from simpson to no avail.The small pin on the side of the mag seems to not go in all the way, so I loaded one by hand then I pushed in on the pin with the nose of another 9mm, now i can lock the loader in place. It seems my reloaded bullets are too long, Ive tried seating the bullet further into the case but still they seem to hang up. If I do get it to work what is the handle on the drum used for? Also does this type mag require a shorter 9mm cartridge?I have no problem feeding any other 9mm mags uzi, mp40 and c96. And they all fit ok.

Henry,
Credit goes to George (keoki7) for this explanation. The bullets are loaded in this mag at a steeper angle. Notice that the follower pivots to allow this. At first I thought my ammo was too long also. Just load it to military length. What you do is: Take one full turn on the handle and lock it into its retaining opening by pushing the button down into the slot and turning the handle a slight amount counter clockwise while releasing the button. Next, load a few cartridges by hand and then put on the loader and continue loading. When you have the proper amount of cartridges loaded, unlatch the handle so the heavy captured spring can do it's work!!! Whew!! :))

Henry, You may have something internal causing the magazine to jam or seize up after 22 rounds but if you loaded 22 and then fired them all successfully I would be inclined to think your magazine is okay. One exception might be heavey dents on the exterior of the snail that might block loading.

Henry,
As I said before, Geo was the guy who explained it to me. I also had several dents in the housing that were binding mine up. I took it apart, removed the dents and voila!! we are in business!. You had asked about taking another turn on the crank and Geo said no,,,, If you ever had it apart you would actually see why not to do that....I won't bore you with the details but it coud get messy!!:))

Also, be very careful when making the single crank on the handle. I have a feeling that if you lost control of the handle you would suffer results as though you were holding an angry pit bull by the muzzle.

Henry;
I took mine apart and cleaned it up adding a light coat of grease to the walls. Originally when I first opened it, it was caked with dried gease that I think contributed to it's binding up. You will have to contend with a two foot long follower spring that is kind of tricky to replace without kinking it though!!. You only have to remove the bottom large head screw and the small screw with the nut on it that holds the bottom extension of the mag. tube. Just lift the cover off the can like you are taking the lid off of a coffee can.Good Luck!!
