Welcome to TFB’s Wheelgun Wednesday, where we take a look at as many aspects of revolvers as we can, one week at a time. Today, we’ll take a look at a newly available speedloader, called the Wrapid Loader. The aptly named Wrapid Loader uses links to hold revolver cartridges, between which are housed some springs to wrap the connected links into a cylinder shape. Because of the springs, the Wrapid loader can be carried flat in a belt pouch, but when deployed, it returns to the designated cylindrical shape to reload a revolver. The shooter then pulls the ring at the end of the loader, and the links release their cartridges one by one as the revolver’s cylinder turns from the force.
Wheelgun Wednesday @ TFB
Our longtime, loyal, wheelgunning readers may recall that the linking reloader design isn’t a brand new one, but was actually patented in 1988, which I reported on as one of my very first articles with TFB. At the time of that article, the linked loading design didn’t seem to have enough people busting down the doors to have them mass produced, until now.
WRAPID LOADER DESCRIPTION & SPECS
A revolutionary speed loading system that gives you the convenience of carrying your speed loader flat and concealed with the rapid cylinder loading of a standard speed loader.

Carries flat, secure and concealed on your belt in a high quality hand tooled vegetable tanned leather holster. Gives quick and reliable access for fast reloads when seconds count. The leather belt holster can also be used to give quick access and securely carry your five round speed strips on those days that you aren’t carrying your six shooter.
- No more fumbling through your pockets to find your speed loaders and speed strips
- No more uncomfortable, protruding cases on your belt printing for the World to see.
