An example of a Speedloader; this particular variant was designed to work with the Nite Finder EX-3.

Not to be confused with Speedload 6.

A speedloader is a dart-reloading tool commonly used with modified single-fire blasters. As the name suggests, they help reduce reload times and improve a blaster's rate of fire. They fit onto the end of a blaster's barrel and house darts ready to be fired. They are often only compatible with blasters that are given a coupler mod; certain blasters may accept speedloaders in their muzzle with little-to-no modification required.


External/revolver speedloader

An external/revolver speedloader is created by using a single CPVC pipe or connecting multiple pieces of CPVC pipe to each other via hot glue, epoxy, duct tape, etc.; if using multiple pipes, enough space should be left for a coupler on the end, which is attached to the blaster's custom pipe barrel. Each CPVC pipe should extend further than the other on at least one side, however both should be the same length.

Speedloaders can be created in many different layout styles; popular speedloader setups are dual speedloaders and turreted speedloaders.

Clip speedloader

A clip or magazine speedloader (also called a stripper clip or stripper magazine) is made out of cardboard or 3D printed. It holds ammunition in a bundle, drops it all into a clip or magazine, and then is removed. This makes reloading faster for clips. This type of speedloader is often used on internal clip/magazine system blasters, but can also make the reloads of removable clips/magazines easier.

RIVAL magazines can also be used as speedloaders by releasing their rounds into another magazine, such as the forty round magazine making reloads much faster without sacrificing any space wasted on larger magazines. Nerfers have also made a 3D printed speedloader for the Kronos XVIII-500's internal magazine.

    • Could be. I should have done this months ago. Perhaps someday in the future, a viable speedloader mod will come around for Hammershot.
