New Speed Loaders For 5-Shot Revolvers
Two speed loaders designed to fit small 38SP J-Frame Revolvers
GAINESVILLE, Ga, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Zeta6™, a new US firearms accessory subsidiary of Zeta Industries, launches in late September with two new speed loader products designed specifically for 5-shot revolvers. The new J-CLIP™ and J-STRIP™ are two low cost, polyurethane speed loaders with the proper hole spacing and design features to perfectly fit popular J-frame size 38SP/357 revolvers. www.zetasix.com
“The shorter cylinder swing on J-frame size revolvers has always made it difficult for speed loaders to clear the frame and grips of these smaller firearms,” says Michael Lyle, product designer. “To solve for this, we not only gave the C-CLIP a pentagon shape, but also made the speed loader body as thin as possible to easily clear most carry style grips. It’s the first of its kind. A true speedloader that loads all 5 rounds at a time with the look, size and price of a rubber speedstrip. On J-STRIP, our strip style reloader, we corrected the hole spacing to properly fit the 5-shot 38 Special, something people have wanted for years.”
The J-CLIP and J-STRIP will fit most J-frame size revolvers chambered in 38SP/357 including Smith & Wesson, Taurus and Rossi. They do not fit the Ruger LCR because of its smaller chamber pattern.
Zeta6™ is a newly formed subsidiary of Zeta Industries and will focus on speed loaders and speed loader accessory products. Mold tooling for two K-frame speedloaders was started last month. Dealers and retail customers should see these products in late October 2019.
Unique Speed Loader For 6-Shot Revolvers
New and unique speedloader designed to fit 6-shot K-Frame Revolvers
GAINESVILLE, Ga, Aug. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Zeta Industries is pleased to introduce a new and unique revolver speedloader designed specifically for 6-shot K-frame size revolvers. The new K-PAK™ is a low cost, polyurethane speedloader that arranges six rounds into two equal three-round arcs. Unlike traditional rigid speedloaders, K-PAK™ is narrow and flexible making it great for concealed pocket carry. This is the first K-frame size speedloader for the Zeta6™ brand, which includes a full line of J-frame speedloaders. www.zetasix.com
“The inspiration for this design was the moon clip, used since the early 20th century to quickly reload revolvers,” says Michael Lyle, product designer. “We wanted to make the speedloader completely symmetrical, so the user would not have to think about orientation. For this reason, we pointed the two half-round moon clip patterns in opposite directions creating something that we call an offset strip speedloader.”
The Zeta6 K-PAK™ works perfectly with all Smith & Wesson 6-shot, K-frame revolvers chambered in 38SP/357. K-PAK™ also fits perfectly in Kimber K6s, Taurus 856, and many Colt models including PPS, DS, Agent, and the new King Cobra.
Zeta6™ K-PAK™ is available now on the zetasix.com website and at many gun stores.
