Remarks                                 :

The 1882 catalogue states that this is ”Loading tube and rammer for pin and central fire with block” The 1149 is the same but without block.

The 1149NB would be the same but nickel silver.

The UK DIXON LOAD 1149N-1 is( I believe) chromed and not nickel plated. It has however the same number 1149N and not 1149N.

Maybe this chromed one is of a later date.
