I know, this is a noobish question. But no matter how much I search, I can't figure out what the hell a speedloader actually does. It looks just like a short section of tube taped on top of the main barrel in all the pictures I've seen. Does it just hold an extra dart for you so you don't have to dig it out of your pocket or something?

Mr. Barker it is two barrels taped/glued together. They are used with a basic breech. To reload simply pull off barrel 1 and flip around.

When you fire one barrel, switch it around for another quick shot. I've seen up to 3 nested barrel on the same speedloader at once.

If you take a peek at my Bow'n'Arrow, you'll see a quad-barrel speedloader.

And to clear up any possible questions, I made a video detailing how they work. Click the picture of my NF to see the video.

I think they are just, in general, anything that decreases the time it takes to load a gun. Another magazine could be considered a speedloader.

Aside from the ones shown above, you could also have, say, a sheet of paper or cardboard templated against a PC clip or an At3k turret. Once the PC or 3k empties itself, all you have to do is line up the darts and push them from the template to the real barrel.

Voila. Gun loaded.

OK, I get it now. I didn't realize that the top barrel was a duplicate of the other barrel. Sounds cool, I may use this on my next gun. Thanks everyone for the clarification!
