Biingo! I see where they got the idea. I wonder if either of Schmeisser's two sons had anything to do with the Rheinmetall?

I went out and took one of my Dreyses apart and, lo!, there it was. The Dreyse is slightly larger diameter than the Rheinmetall, but I get the idea now.
Thanks for that tip, Jim.

I've included a couple shots to show the Rheinmetall setup vs. the Dreyse.
