Go to the AR15.com Pistol and Rimfire subforum to read a bunch about different brands of 9mm AR's, issues and 9mm conversion pieces.
Maybe it's just me, but I have one of those loaders. It does not work well on M-11 mags, so I don't use it at all. For Colt/Uzi mags, just press rounds straight down from top. I've never found the need for a loader for them, it would just slow me down.
