Butler Creek ASAP Magazine Loaders Highlight of NRA Show

Check Out the New ASAP Loaders, Meet New Brand Ambassador John Scoutten at the 2017 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits

April 27, 2017

OVERLAND PARK, Kansas –  Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announces the new ASAP Magazine loaders are now available. Come see them and learn why “Shooting USA” host John Scoutten has chosen these loaders as his go-to option at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542) during the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30.

Available in Universal Single Stack, Universal Double Stack, AK-47/GALIL and AR15 magazine configurations these loaders are extremely easy to use and provide speed and relief from “shooter’s thumb.” The Universal Single Stack and Universal Double Stack ASAP loaders work with a large majority of common magazines between 9mm and .45 ACP (including .380 ACP for the Double Stack Loader).

“They are extremely easy to use,” said Butler Creek Product Manager Will Hemeyer. “Simply push the mag loader down, insert the round below the feed lips, and raise the loader up. The cartridge is seated and magazine loaded… just like that.”

The ASAP Universal AR15/M16 Mag Loader offers three ways to load MSR magazines—and none involve the user’s thumbs. Loose ammo can be loaded one round at a time with a simple click into place.

“Or, users can engage the loading arm to expedite the process,” Hemeyer said. “The loading arm can handle up to 10 rounds of loose ammo, or rounds held in a stripper clip. The rounds are locked into the mag with a quick push.”

Consumers can try the new loaders at the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30. Butler Creek brand ambassador John Scoutten will be on hand to answer questions. Scoutten is the producer and Emmy award nominee co-host of the Outdoor Channel’s “Shooting USA.” He also competes in multiple shooting events, including NRA Action Pistol, Steel Challenge and the Precision Rifle Series, among others. On Friday, April 28, Scoutten will host a product demonstration at 1 p.m. followed by a question-and-answer session at 1:30 at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542).
