Looks like a speed loader for a tube fed to me. Where'd ya get it?
PJ,papajohn said:Lots of folks have the modern version of that, a plastic tube with 8 smaller tubes around its circumference, each one holding 15 rounds of 22 LR. (I forget who makes it.) The endcap is held by an internal spring, allowing you to speed-feed rounds into a tubular magazine using gravity. I use mine with my Henry 22.
In Brophy's book (page 178) they show a copy of an 1892 catalog illustrating the caliber .22 Loading Tube much like what your picture shows.Tomray said:PJ,
I have one, exactly like you describe.......Mine is a MARLIN Spee-D-loader. They are said to be very collectible now.

PJ,papajohn said:This is the one I have. There's no name on it anywhere, but I bought it out of a catalog a couple years ago for $15-18. It holds 120 rounds of 22 LR, 15 in each of 8 tubes around the circumference. A spring that runs down the center holds the cap with the spout in place, and you just turn it to a new opening to gravity-feed the ammo into your tube magazine. Works fine. 8)
