The UpLula-K
By: Den S

The following is a Pic-tutorial, where I will attempt to show how the UpLula-Kadet modification  ( The UpLula-K ) is done
This Mod will allow the UpLULA Magazine Loader to load most any Mag, .22 thru .45
If you have any questions, feel free to call my cell: 949-254-5812
And, if after viewing this tutorial, you'd rather have me mod it for you, or just buy a pre-modded UpLula-K, check-out my ad here:

NOTE: You must be logged in to view the attached pictures.

Start by looking at that the loading “beak” of your UpLULA. You’ll see it has three areas; a trough, bordered on both sides by a ridge. If you compare the two, you’ll notice that the trough (measuring approx .22) lines up, in most cases, with the Kadet magazine follower. I have noticed lately, that there are no two beaks alike. One may be off more to the left and the next, off to the right. Compare your beak to the follower and make a mental note of the amount of material that needs to be removed from each side. (Pic-1)

The UpLula-Kadet mod is started by first popping the two halves of the loader apart. (Two old credit cards work great for this). Slide the CC's in-between the moving halves on both sides. (Pics-2 & 3)

Now the halves should unfold apart, giving you the room you’ll need to do your cuts. (Pic-4)

PLEASE NOTE:
Since not all UpLULA Loaders are the same (anymore), your cut lines may be somewhat different

Left ridge cut line. (Pic-5)

Right ridge. Your cut lines are the edge of the ridge, on both sides of the trough. (Pic-6)

You’ll need to cut the ridge on right side, up as far as you can to the bend, to accommodate the feed lip on the right side of the Kadet magazine. (Pic-7)

PLEASE NOTE:
In modifying the UpLULA for the Sig .22lr Conversion magazines (the UpLula-S), I have noticed that both cuts have to be as far back as possible to the bend to accommodate the feed lips on the Sig magazine

FYI:
I am now modding all my new mods this way
I guess the new UpLula-K is really an UpLula-K 2.0

Using a Dremel with a cut-off wheel, (DieGrinder or a file and lots of time) cut the beak along the cut line on both sides of its center trough, leaving as much of the trough you can. Try to cut only the ridge. BUT REMEMBER, your beak may/or will be different, so cut along "YOUR" cut lines. (Pic-8 & 9)

Now you should have two small points to remove with your abrasive point. (Pic-10)

Grind out the two points. (Pic-11 & 12)

Then use your abrasive point to radius the inside corners and smooth the cut edges. (Pic-13 & 14)

Also use your abrasive point to bevel the underside and round off the tip of the loading beak. (Pic-15)

Then polish the trough and edges, making everything as smooth and shinny as possible. (Pic- 16, 17 & 18)

Apply a few applications of cold bluing ( Optional ). (Pic-19)

Remove all excess powder and debris. Snap the two halves back together. (Pic-20)

Now you have your UpLula-K, and you’re ready to load your magazine(s). (Pic-21)
