Any such thing as a Winchester speedloader?

A pal and me were talking at the range today, he believes Winchester (or maybe Marlin) manufactured a “speedloader tube” back in the day. I’ve never seen or heard of such an item - certainly not in a historical context. I’ve seen devices more recently manufactured that serve this purpose but made by Winchester? I’m not so sure... 

Can anyone shed any light?

 

Thanks!

I know that there were loading tubes made for the gallery model pump 22's.  See link below.

I know I have one of these tubes.  It might have come with a M62 .22 short I have - I can't recall for sure.  I know I have the tube ... somewhere.  Anyway, I thought these were a way to measure out a certain number of rounds for those that stepped up and paid their money at the shooting gallery counter?

Yea, I have a couple that I received from Jolly Bill when I purchased a M62A .22 short Gallery Gun from him with leash and loading tubes. Cool to have all the parts together.

I had a device I guess you could call a speed loader.  It was for quickly loading the Winchester Model 1903 .22 Autoloader through the stock.

I have pictures of it somewhere but couldn't find them.

I have a fantastic photo filing system but my retrieval system needs some work.

If I find them, I'll post them here.

I have several of the tubes shown for the gallery guns but I've never seen the one Jolly Bill shows for the 1903. I obviously missed it in my catalogs as well. That's a neat little device, Thanks for sharing.
