    The seller claims it's for reloading. I've not seen anything like it before.

    I dunno, but it looks like any number of hand riveting tools I've seen and used.

    Yep, riveter. I have a similar one down in the garage. Punch and base will determine whether it is to put buttons on a western shirt, or punch through two or three thicknesses of leather.

    That makes more sense. Thanks, I couldn't see what you could reload with it based on the picture.
