    On my JM 1894 .44 Mag, I stoned and polished the front edges and inside "passages" of the loading port. I also slightly reduced the spring pressure on the loading gate. The result for me is faster and smoother loading of the magazine.

    What we really need for speed loading is a removable tube. Like a magazine, the whole tube comes off, bayonet fashion out of the receiver. Of course we are talking major reworking of the receiver and custom manufacture of the tubes, but having been in gun manufacture, I am sure it could be done. I dont think its worth the effort, several issues like keeping the rounds in the mag while detached and would be expensive, but not impossible?

    I could design it if anyone is interested. Already thinking of how it would work...

    If you lighten up the spring pressure of the loading gate, it makes loading a lot easier. Just sayin'.....
