    Bought a new Tasco 3-7X scope for the Model 60 last week plus one of those Spee-D-Loaders.

    I really like the new scope because the magnification really works and it's a great scope for the 22LR. The old scope had a little problem with the cross hairs drooping.

    The Spee-D-Loader is cool. it has 8 chambers that each hold 15 rounds so I can load and fire 120 rounds really quickly.

    So glad I have a Marlin Model 60 again.

    I'll have to check out the spee-d-loader - it sounds like a cool add on. I appreciate the accuracy of the Model 60 and have routinely placed 1" groups at 100 yards with the same scope...

    I really didn't want to plunk down the $35 for the Spee-D-Loader (after shipping) but, it is nice. What I like most is that I can pre-load 120 rounds so when I go to the range, I don't spend time loading. I just select the next chamber, dump them into the magazine and go. About 10 seconds or less from empty to fully loaded and ready to fire again.

    Yep, that's the one :)

    Just be sure when you're ready to load the magazine you have the hole lined up, otherwise it's about as quick as you can dump 15 rounds on the ground lol

    You get used to it after the first few loads. Some guys brag they can go from empty to reloaded in 5 seconds with one. I dunno about that.

    Which model spee d do you have...

    Looking at Midway's description, for instance the D-15 holds 15 22 LR cartridges. None of the spee d's Midway shows says how many chambers each particular size has. Maybe you can clarify for me...this is a cool loader. Thanks for sharing.

    No big rush

    I don't get in a big rush to load or reload. But having a spee d loader sure would make it easier. I drop as many as I get in the tube when I try to load fast so that little gadget is something I want to get.

    I know this one has 8 individual cylinders. Do all sizes have 6 tubes in the main tube? I see Midway has a D 19...so 8 x 19 is 152.

    Not knowing how many shells the other brand rifles will hold, I am wondering if all have 8 individual tubes, and the different numbers relate to the number of shells a particular rifle holds. Several rifles are listed and there are several tube fed 22's out there. I see a D6, 11, 15, 17, 19 size spee d, so it would make sense to have a different loader for each rifle if they held a different number of shells. (I know, I am anal-lytical.)
