Ahhh!!! PVC nice idea that will make it even cheaper. You can mount it anywhere like your pod idea or hose whatever. Me likely.

Edit: You just got to make sure there is enough lip to actuate the ZetaMag's ball release. Remember the stock TiPX mag needs a hook for the ball release.

Took a while. I can probably make it better, the latch piece needs a little tweaking since the 7th ball is tricky and I have smaller rubber bands for the retainer band.

Total parts cost was around 2 bucks.

I still need to figure out the funneling issue for the inside of the pod. Kinda weird to just shake it all the time I guess.




Update: Done, I can probably do a V2, but it's functional.

I just do it by hand from a 50-round pod - feels good pushing a round in one at a time.

HAHA, as long as she's gentle.

My reasoning is so I can load up between games during that small window of "change sides" when you can load up your mags...I found I'm still loading from a small pod by hand when the next game starts.

Ok so I made one, took me a huge 15mins. I don't have any special cord so I used a thick elastic to tether the cap. So far I like it. I can post pics if you want but its pretty much the same.

HAHA, i found this video hilarious. His comments and mannerisms....funny.

"I am a fan of Coca-cola, I love Sprite."

"I'm not a mathematician."

"I took my Sharpie....which is MIA."

he has alot of good insight on small details that i can relate to.

The step bits are great tools. i used a set to cleanly drill my pod lid.

His magnet idea would work well with the harness...rare earth magnets will do the trick.

The step bit is cool but I didnt have one. I just drilled up to 1/4 and then used a 120 grit drum sander from a dremel and slowly worked the hole to the right side.

I made this re reload my mags



Loads a magazine faster than anything I have found.

Cost $31 to make. Requires an agitated loader.

Fast as you can put a new mag at the bottom it will load them. My tests did 5 mags in 15 seconds.

The new version will load both 7, 8, and 10 round mags without a part change.

I bring a large tote with wheels to the field so I can secure my gear. Idea here is to mount this to the top of the tote when I need it.
The REVY pulls off in a second.

I have a video,...
