OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, is pleased to announce that the company’s ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader was named the 2020 Accessory of the Year by Shooting Illustrated magazine. Butler Creek will be recognized with the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Award in the May 2020 issue of Shooting Illustrated.
"Shooting an AR-15 is incredibly fun, but in order to shoot them, you first have to load magazines, which is decidedly less fun,” said Ed Friedman, Editor-in-Chief, Shooting Illustrated. “The Butler Creek ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader makes loading AR magazines fast, easy and effortless, leaving you with more mags loaded in far, far less time. That translates into more time to shoot and fingers that don’t hurt. That alone made it an obvious choice for the Golden Bullseye Award for Accessory of the Year."
The ASAP Electronic Magazine Loader is the only product of its kind on the market. Through its state-of-the-art designs, the ASAP EML allows users the ability to fill the hopper with loose .223/5.56 rounds, select the desired round count and simply press one button to load their magazines. The machine automatically orientates the ammunition and can load a 30-round magazine in 45 seconds.
Made with serious competitors and training facilities in mind, the ASAP EML will work with most AR15/M16 magazines. The loader is standard with a dual power supply via an AC adapter or through lithium-ion batteries. Users can easily load magazines with 1 to 40 rounds through the selection menu, with the ability to set up multiple magazines to coincide with various training drills or firearms platforms.
