Maybe, but he'll be out of town for the next month or so, I have to buy the material for the collar part (I have extra feed tube though).

Thadapters are basically a spring loaded plug that takes place of a standard feed plug.

Picture history of the thadapter as far as I understand it from reading MCB:

First made by Thad aka the weltman on his original lever action (the lower one, I think the first lever action sheridan ever made), no spring behind the thadapter plug (made around 1992??):



Then spread to bretg's KLs (the first production lever actions, pictured is an integrated one):



Add-on versions were made as well:


I have 3 of them, I really like them, they load a tiny bit slower than just dropping the balls straight down a side tube, something about the balls making a 90* turn rather than rolling straight into the feed tube from the 10-round tube. But the benefits far outweigh that minor drawback, aka no fumbling around with feed plugs.

Yea, chplnstone has his version too, I like your version though, with the rotating feed plug, that's a Palmer's thing though. Rick said he couldn't do your version on mine, as my feed tube is on the side and that would mean the loading hole would be next to the stock.
