My guess would be an early version of a cattle prod. The bump would sting a bit and the noise would sure get them moving.

I thought that cattle prod sounded like a good guess but then, you would have to reload after one crack. I've done a bunch of Googling and haven't found anything similar.

The warning may be not to use black powder?

i can read the first line on the label that says "this device was designed."  If I can read that much from here and from a picture, it doesn't seem it would take more than a magnifying glass to finish the answer to your question.

After looking at it again, I would say it was a thing to load powder into primers for rifle or shotgun shells, it shows no signs of blowing up.

Like woodhauler said.. old cartridge/primer reloader?  Hit the padded side w/ your hand.

I really don't know what it is !!!!! but im pretty sure its not a reloader,i do have a bunch of antique reloaders and this dont fill the bill. It is some sort of noise maker maybe  for initiation purposes for college frat houses or something. There is a reason its a padded paddle  ??? ???

It reminds me of a"slapstick", only with a lot more slap. It's obviously designed to be swung against something to get it to fire the blank, but it's padded so as to not damage whatever you are hitting. The only result would be a loud bang.
I have to agree with you, I consulted with a man who knows everything, then googled antique vaudeville slapsticks and found one very similar.

After all, why do you think they call it slapstick comedy?

This is great news.  I'm going to print the catalog pages for my friend that owns the device in the original post photos.


I knew the FF would come through.  I just didn't expect  it to take this long.

I don't think many people that use this forum were even alive when they used them. I had to consult a man much older them me who just happens to know just about everything or knows someone that does.
