Simples Adapter Packet

I’m trying to get the hang of loading photos and in what sizes, so please bear with me.
Though some of the guys interested in this area might like to see these.

Cheers

Thank you for posting these pictures! It’s nice to see an origional Adaptor box, since I had yet to see one. Especially with all the contents not missing!

Regards,

Thanks Chris and Jim,

I’m guessing the PP 11962 is a Patent Pending Number???

Cheers

John,

Correct ! see it is the same number as shown on the drawing sheet as sent in by Fede.

1902 was the first appearance of this in the Eley catalogs.

As you might know Kynoch did a similar thing but the cartridges are not interchangeable.

Thanks Jim,

I did look at Fede’s drawing but missed seeing the number until you pointed it out.

I only vaguely recall the Kynock adapter, but have no information on it on file.

Cheers

John,

Nice adapter set. Very interesting to see in such nice condition. Thank you for sharing the pics!

Is it explained anywhere what the purpose of the four holes in the adapter head is?

Dave


#12

Dave,

the four holes are for extraction of the device from the chamber of the rifle.
this was accomplished by the use of the spring tool, seen in the box.

John,
for pictures of the Kynoch adaptor, and the Simplex, and others for the British .303 see my article on pages 18 to 20 in the IAA Journal#449.

Jim,

How is the best way to get to see Journal #449, as I don’t have a copy. Is there an accessible ejournal of that issue.??
