Butler Creek ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader Now Shipping

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – June 6, 2019 – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven, hunting and shooting accessories, is excited to announce the ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader is now available at retailers online and in stores.

The .223/5.56 ASAP EML is the only product of its kind, and it is made with serious competitors and training facilities in mind. Users simply fill the 60 round hopper with loose .223/5.56 rounds, select the desired round count and press a button. The machine automatically orientates the ammunition and loads the magazine. Loading does not get any easier.

“The Butler Creek ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader is on the cutting edge,” said Will Hemeyer, Butler Creek Senior Product Manager. “The EML represents our commitment to exceeding the expectations of accessory products used for magazine loading. For those looking for a fast and easy way to load rounds, the Butler Creek Electronic Magazine Loader is the perfect choice.”

With an easy-to-set round selection menu from 1 to 40, the ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader is faster, more accurate and easier on the thumbs than hand-loading. It can load 30 rounds in 45 seconds, while users concentrate on other tasks or instruction. It works with most AR15/M16 magazines and offers dual power supply via an AC adapter or lithium-ion batteries. It has a MSRP of $442.95.

    Does it work with blank ammo?

    “60 round hopper”
    They are not serious.

    • Jack Griffin says:

      Indeed. Should be five times that. The time you save loading mags is now spent dumping rounds into a hopper.

    • Richie says:

      I guess it is still a lot faster and easier to dump some rounds in the hopper than to load in the mag, you just have to do that once a minute or something

    • Gerard says:

      It isnt about speed its taking the stress off my 60 year old fingers

    45 seconds isn’t fast.

    • Richie says:

      I would say it is relative, if it can load those rounds while you are shooting the gun, it is extremely fast, as the time you would have spent loading the mag went down to however long it takes to stick an empty mag in and dump ammo in the machine, so like 10s

  4. Mike says:

    While well intentioned, I’m sure, this is a hammer looking for a nail. Why would I want to pay ~$450 in order to load two 30-rounders in under a minute? Now if this thing held hundreds of rounds and I could toss dozens of mags into this thing, that would be another story….. I’ll stick to a stripper clip guide for ¢.45.

    • Craig says:

      Actually, it can only load one 30-round magazine in under a minute. Two would take 90 seconds.

  5. Inventive says:

    Tech improves with time. It may not look like much this version, but I’ll bet in a few generations of improvements this will have a lot more of the requested features.

    Some people will complain if they are hung with a new rope! A couple generations down the road and it will probably meet most everyones expectations, except the foot rub part I’m sure!

    • Jeb says:

      Old rope slides faster and less resistance… I like the ones who complain for new rope, it draws out the public display of stupidity a few minutes longer while they struggle to die. Price of admission worth the attraction and all.

    • Steve says:

      Unless you’re plopping down the $450 for one of these, Ground Pounder, then you’re not much different from the folks being more verbal about the characteristics of why they’re not buying one either.

  7. EODMadBomb says:

    I think it’s a great concept, but I can load up with a MagLula in about the same amount of time, and for considerably less money. It also unloads ridiculously fast.
    I do like the idea behind it though. If you could get the speed up and increase the hopper to hold say 10 mags worth. I could see the appeal; especially for training locations that go through a ton of rounds.
