How are you loading your WE GBBR mags with BBs?

Do you have to use the tube feeder that comes with their guns or can you use certain speedloaders? I see you can take off the square feeder lip off their tube loader but it doesn't fit the speed loader I have. So far I've been speedloading the tube feeder, then using that to fill the mag. Doesn't seem that efficient.

Curious what others are doing.

I've had the same plastic pistol size speedloader for nearly 5 years, still going strong, and I use it for all my airsoft guns. Actually I hand load my pistol mags, but with the GBBR's I just hold it at about 45 degrees, put my fingers on either side of the mags feed lips so stray bbs don't fly out, and plunge away.

I used the loading tube I got with the gun. Makes loading a lot quicker and easier. You can use a speedloader, but there are none that fit properly on the feed lips of WE mags, so loading them that way can be a bit of a pain in the ass.

My used gun never came with the tube so like Commando, hand loading for that milsim experience!

I just view my loading tube as a stripper clip for that authentic milsim experience.

The m4 mag style speed loaders have this small flip down feed lip. Feeds 100% WE mags.

We're running around with toy guns pretending to be soldier and pretending to kill each other. Why not use our imagination a bit more? lol

I was always told hand loading isn't a good thing because the oils on your hands would eventually foul up the barrel and hop up. Is there any merit to this belief or is it total BS?

If it was, then everyone who hand loads pistol mags would have issues.

Anyway, if you are worried, clean your inner barrel regularly as normally recommended.

the WE loading tube is not a good tool as it stress the feedlips side to side from top loading, Use pistol speed loader, it will push where it came out.

You know that weird lip thing that comes with some speedloaders? I found that it works perfectly. You dont want to push the bbs straight down like the WE loader.. that will eventually damage the mag feed lip and can also scratch up the bbs on the way in. What you want to do is feed the bbs in the same way as they come out. I found that clip on lip that comes with the loader fits perfectly over the WE mag and works like a charm. I took one of my loaders and made it a dedicated WE loader by supergluing the lip on (it was falling off frequently).
