Default McFadden Lightnin' Grip magazine loader

I just received my loader and following the instructions, it doesn't work. It seems to me, the magazine (Ruger factory 10/22 magazine) doesn't completely seat in the adapter. I even checked for a Youtube video. Doesn't the loader work with Ruger magazines?

Thanks.

The regular ultimate clip loader most certainly works with ruger pistols. I haven't seen this product in use, but it appears that this product is designed to have an adapter for a wider array of .22lrs. It looks like it should work as the 10/22 is advertised. Make sure you have the right adapter and there may be a screw that you need to loosen or tighten to properly depress the spring on your particular magazine.

I have 3 of the ultimate loaders and they work perfectly, I was hoping to get the same results with this new one. I'm sure I have the proper adapter installed, the magazine is just too far away from the bullets to load. Since it's the weekend, I sent them an email. If I don't get an answer by Monday morning, I'll give them a phone call.
Thanks
