    I don't know if anyone else has posted this idea, and if they have I'll apologize in advance. Some of my favorite .22 rifles to shoot are my nylon 66s. I got tired of loading 14 rounds in their magazines, so I came up with this shortcut. These are 3/8" ID tubes made from a material called "PEX" available at the home depot. I cut them to a length of 14.5", plugged one end with a rubber plug, and used a "push/pull" fastener trimmed off for the stopper. With these tubes I can reload in less than 3 seconds. I am enclosing some pics of what they look like. I'll be making alot more of these in the future. These 4 costs me less than $2.50 to make. I hope this will help someone like it did me. Now I can spend my time shooting at the range, and do the loading at home.

    You do know that they sell the same thing commercially.

    I didn't know that they are commercially available. Do you know who manufactures them?

    Love those nylon 66s.
    One of the best 22s ever made imho.
    I still have the one I bought new in 59 for $68 and I cannot imagine how many rounds it now has through it.
    I used it when I was running my trap lines in Wy during the 50s and 60s then my little brothers used it while I was in the service.
    Still accurate and dependable with or without scope.
    Thanks for the idea on quick loading and even if I can buy one at the store, I like the idea of building my own, so thanks for the suggestions.

    Back in the 60s we used to go to the State Fair and for a quarter you used a Winchester model 74 Gallery Gun in 22 short to try and shoot out the Red Star on a piece of paper and win a prize. The guy running it had tubes made up with the shorts that he would speed load the rifles with. He carried the tubes in an apron.
    Can't image doing that today.
