Podavach Magazine Speed Loader reviews and construction improvements suggestions
 
Hello.

We want to create a thread, where we want to ask Podavach owners and other forum users your thoughts about Podavach design, its functional and other aspects.

https://45.media.tumblr.com/e4c6b9ad...ko2_r1_540.gif

Here is our marketplace thread - http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=244001

And our website link - http://podavach.com

For example, one of the thoughts is to make higher flange of container for bullets to have an ability to swamp 60-90 rounds in it and load 2-3 mags one by one. What do you think? :cool_smal

I think having a model that can load top loading drums would be incredibly useful.

Strike Hard Gear 01-27-2016 09:02 PM

Perhaps some kind of nub that you set the mag on for removal of the floorplate. Just push down and slide it off. More of a convenience than necessity but an added feature non the less.

Maybe somewhere on the backside imprint a translation for the production codes found on spam cans.

Lastly on the edge of the hopper put another nub/track for people to unload mags by sliding them back and forth upside down. The rounds would drop in the hopper.

Lee Armory 01-28-2016 12:14 AM

Something that would auto sort the rounds so all you have to do is change out the mag and push the lever. Repeat.

Hello.

You can load your RPK Mags on 5.4 model. You should use a pusher two times: 20+25 or 15+30 rounds.

I received the new 5.4 loader yesterday and the craftsmanship and quality is excellent. It loads 30 rounds of 7.62x39 as designed with minimal effort. Loading MagPul 5.56x45 is not as easy. I find that when doing 5.56x45 I can not load all 30 rounds at once but if I split it to 15 than 15 more it loads just fine. I do have to say that the shipping speed was surprisingly fast considering it was an international shipment.

Hello.

Thank you for your review. I want to ask, is there any ability to make any kind of photos or video?

BoyCanShoot 03-21-2016 06:55 PM

Can't wait to get my new version.... I plan to do an updated review from v1 to latest. My v1 won't load 7.62x39 rounds due to it being too tight I'm assuming this is corrected in the new version. Should be any day now!

Hizzie 03-22-2016 06:11 PM

Really digging v5.4. Only criticism I have so far is the pusher needs a hole or a groove around it to support being dummy corded to rest of loader.

bigbob 03-31-2016 01:13 PM

I placed an order on 3/14 and have yet to see a tracking number as well.

pandore 03-31-2016 02:15 PM

Hello, guys.

Batch of our baltic plywood stuck in Amsterdam mailing hub for two weeks.

We have mailed to your paypal email addresses about this situation. Have you received it?

Your loaders is ready and you can not doubt that you will get the tracking number tomorrow morning. If not, you will get a full refund instantly.

We are really sorry, sometimes that happens when you are using imported materials.

If you say it's coming than I'm good. I'd rather not cancel the order unless this drags on for a couple more weeks.

I did not get an email about the situation.

I ordered mine on March 5th, got a shipping notification March 12th, and received mine on March 28th or 29th. I was pleasantly surprised to have received it as quickly as I did considering it being international. I've ordered things outside the US before and it taken over a month.

As for the loader, my v5.4 works great. I haven't tried it with all the magazines I have yet, but for the ones I have the most of it worked great. Thanks Pandore for a great product.

I did a little demonstration/review of it on my youtube channel for anyone interested. The video is of the first times I used it, so I'm sure as I use it more I'll get better/faster with it.

He could have just messaged me with the tracking #.

In 2 days I am cancelling payment.. Sorry but this is ridiculous. It's not in the junk folder.. I can obviously get PMs here. I don't understand what the issue is. The poor contact is what worries me more than the fact I have not received my item yet.


Hello.

Maybe smth wrong with paypal, but it is shipped already, as we promised.
Can you double check it?

Sending you PM with tracking number.

ncreptile 04-14-2016 12:05 PM

Hey guys, just wanted to post I received mine today in good shape. Looks to be of high quality and will report back with a review.

I deleted by above posts as problem was resolved.

Are you able to track these once they leave Ukraine? My tracking says it left Ukraine on 4/3/2016.

23 days later and I still haven't seen it.

No, I requested it multiple times... Showed up randomly 31 days later USPS :confused:

PORTER 04-26-2016 05:27 PM

I bought one of these from Mountain man as he had an extra. Absolutely love it, no more sore fingers loading mags. ;)

bigbob 04-28-2016 07:19 PM

It arrived today...what a great product! Thanks

Turbo Dang 05-16-2016 06:46 PM

Got my V5.4 today. Unless I'm missing something, there is no way to get 30 rounds loaded at once. My bullet guide channel is very rough from about the 15 round mark to the 30 round mark. The bullet tips get hung up around there. Even when I only load 10 rounds, the amount of force I'm using just to get the rounds loaded is extremely excessive.

I really had high hopes for this loader, but so far I very disappointed

toomuchstuff 05-17-2016 08:57 PM

I received mine and used it for the first time today, I also had an issue with the 7.62x39 rounds getting stuck. I cleaned the edges up with an exacto knife as it looks like after they are routed they were coated so any loose fibers were stiff and in the way. The real issue I am having is loading AR15 mags as they don't fit well into the tool and don't load well, will need to play with shimming to get them aligned. Overall it just needs to be used and maybe lubed with some wax to smooth it out, would buy another.

chknfkr 03-25-2017 09:25 AM

Other than adding the new color (black) what improvements does the 5.5 offer over the 5.4?

PORTER 03-30-2017 12:42 PM

Pandore sent you a pm,, please return it at your soonest time possible. Thanks

I was just wondering if someone could specify they wanted the same version you sell in ukraine, ect... I'm fine with the standard english version but i bet some guys on here would want one like that.
