Loading Tool for a .31 Caliber Volcanic Repeater

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

One thing I have not really thought about before is how best to carry extra cartridges for a Volcanic repeater. They are self-contained, but still rather fragile compared to today’s ammunition (and they were originally packaged in metal boxes). Well, at least one person clearly did put some thought into this, and made themselves this 30-round cartridge carrier and loading tool. It uses six pewter tubes soldered together, with a sliding lid that allows each tube to be opened in sequence. This would make for a very quick reloading of a Volcanic, by simply pouring the contents of a tube directly into the magazine of the pistol. Neat!
