Air-O-Matic (top loader, knob variant)

Courtesy of Leonardj.

The gun is designed to shoot 3/16" dia. steel balls, and was loaded by means of a cardboard tube, which held 20 shots. The tube was slid into the loading port of the open breech, and a long probe attached to the top cover would then push the balls into the magazine of the gun as the cover was closed. A protrusion on the magazine follower would block the mechanism after the last ball was shot, to avoid wasting air.
