That's neat! How long do you think it will take Willard to make one?

Come on Willard, don't let us down

If I only had a rotary table...

I'm wanting to make an inline dispenser.
Long and skinny would be easier to mount to gun.
Maybe double barreled with a single plunger that
will dispense from either tube depending on which
way/side you press.
You could carry two flavors at once and choose either.
Maybe even inlet it into forend or butstock.
I've got it pictured, but still want to figure a
way to change magazines and leave dispenser mounted.
Gravity fed or spring loaded?
Aluminum arrow tubing?
No need for the rotary....

It's really easy trig out the hole locations for a bolt circle. The Machinery's Handbook has a chart and formula where you just plug in how many holes, the diameter of the BC, etc. I've seen a similar chart on a website somewhere too.
I have a rotary table but don't often put it up on the mill to drill an equally spaced bolt circle. It's too heavy!
Don't hold your breath Dave.

I really don't think that would be too handy I agree with Ken haveing it drop in your palm would not be too handy.
Now if you come up with a neat inline loader I might try it.
Did you ever get the base on yout sight worked out?

Yesterday on a Airgun retailers web site I say a pellet dispenser that looked like an aluminum bic pen. You used it to load pellets directly into the bore. It looked like it would work only for break barrels though due to the fact that it was to long to stick into a bolt action or the open chamber of a side lever. I looked for it today when I read Ken's post but could not find it.
On the red dot, no I have not been able to make my mount work by flipping over the side plates. I think mine is built differently. If you have a mount I would like to get it from you.
I just found it. In my old #1 Airgun Express catalog it was called an RWS Pellet Dispenser. It is an aluminum tube 5 1/4" long with a spring loaded plunger which keeps one pellet exposed at a time and ready to load in your break barrel rifle or pistol.
Talk to you later,

Best inline loader I've seen was ball point pen body.

Main advantage over tictac container was less rattling.

Well, lacking the patience to transfer one pellet at a time, here's my humble idea...

Pouch around neck
|November 11 2004, 11:31 AM |
I've been using an ammo pouch from Uncle Mikes. It's a change purse type with velcro top. I attached it to a neck lanyard(sp) keychain.
I have a Daisy kangaroo pouch style with Marksman logo as well. You have to dig for 'em so I dont use it much.
Still, a push button dispenser on the forearm sounds nice.
Steve in NC
It does sound nice - assuming that you're organized enough to grab...
|November 11 2004, 11:37 AM |
...the right dispenser with the right pellets for the right gun!
Because that's a somewhat - um - iffy proposition for me, I like having the pellet supply attached to the gun!
That's beutiful Steve....
|November 12 2004, 2:01 AM |
Wouldn't a piece of that sticky backed neoprene foam (Like weatherstripping) with some holes punched in it to hold the pells be a little easier to use? You could just stick it to the stock.
Steve in NC
What part of "lacking the patience to transfer one pellet at a time"...
|November 12 2004, 11:47 AM |
...didn't you understand, Vic? LOL!
It's bad enough to have to load the GUN.
I DON'T want to have to also load the dispenser too. I much prefer the tip-and-pour or unwrap-and-clip methods.
The part I don't understand is....
|November 12 2004, 12:25 PM |
How your setup can possibly be less cumbersome (Overall) than the one I described. Do you actually LIKE that tumor growing on the side of your guns? Don't it get in the way, get knocked off, etc? Aint it still a pain to use (Having to open up the lid and all?
You seem like a practical person, but do you have a footlocker glued to the passenger doors of all your vehicles? Certainly would be handy....
Steve in NC
I guess, like the man said, Vic, there's no disputing that Gus is in the east.
|November 12 2004, 10:00 PM |
Just in case you're really interested, the routine of:
> Pop the lid.
> Pick a pellet.
> Load the pellet.
> Close the lid.
Is a routine that becomes ingrained.
And actually with the pistols you don't have to close the lid between shots. It's even more convenient (I find) than an open pellet tin on the bench. Of course that doesn't work so well with springer recoil!
And no. A well positioned pellet box doesn't get knocked off.
Try it. You might like it. Really. Hold your nose if necessary.

How about a Pezz candy type......
|November 11 2004, 12:13 PM |
When you pop the lid a pellet will pop out.Even better would be if you could seat the pellet without touching it.One of you brains out there should be able to come up with this one.????? Scott
Ken in Dallas
Looks cool, but . . . . . .
|November 11 2004, 2:00 PM |
Looks really neato, but have you ever tried to pick a pellet out of the palm of your hand . . . . . . . . .while holding your rifle with the other hand?
A design that would deposit the pellet between your thumb and index finger would be more useable. Otherwise, I'll stick with pouches or Texas Tulips.

|November 11 2004, 2:24 PM |
Actually in my perfect world(gasp) you wouldn't need to touch the pellet you could load the pellet kind of like a purcsion cap holder for muzzle loaders.
|November 11 2004, 2:54 PM |
What are those?
Sounds like a setup for a bad joke...LOL
RWS Pellet Dispenser

These are pretty.
