Unfortunately true, too many a**h***s complaining about stupid little shit made him stop making them. Luckily I got mine too.Mike is a super awesome guy, but unfortunately he is no longer doing the speedloader holders. Just figured I'd let you guys know. I shoot with him regularly at Bridgeport.
Dave, I FINALLY took your advice and it makes a HUGE difference. I used Bill T's approach. Go to the hardware store and find some 3/16" x 0.750" stainless steel dowel pins. They were 35 cents each at my local ACE Hardware. They are a tight fit. If you use a punch you get gently tap them flush. You can let them stick out a little bit if you want them to release earlier.Hey Mike those came out real nice. Did you plug that hole? Honestly that made a HUGE difference.
Dave I wish I could claim credit: Thorpe found them and has been using them for a while. I got them at the local ACE hardware. I thought I was going to have to trim them but I measured the depth of the hole and it was 0.75". They go in easy the first half inch or so then you have to get out the puch. I went a little overboard with the punch tapping one in and it is slightly below flush.
I've got two extra and there may be a couple more in the drawer at the Westford ACE (unless they restocked them). I'm going to be in NY for the ICORE match this weekend but I'll throw them in my bag and give you them at the next MWT match.
I found these steel pins on Amazon. 10 pins for $4.48.Damn Mike- you one upped me! I might replace my rivets with them! Did you cut them down? If you are near the hardware store and get more let me know! I've never seen metal dowels.
