Abstract

542,727. Machine guns; rifles. SALMON, J. T. March 26, 1940, No. 5433. [Classes 92 (ii) and 119] Relates to guns having a magazine 7 provided with cartridge compartments forming firing chambers, the magazine being moved to feed the cartridges to firing position by means actuated by a sliding hand-actuated breech bolt 5. According to the invention a pin 5B moving rearwards with the breech bolt engages a pawl 8 to feed the magazine across the breech during the end part of the rearward movement of the bolt. Fig. 1 shows the invention applied to a Bren gun adapted to fire miniature ammunition, the usual barrel, which is detachably fitted in a sleeve G, being replaced by an adaptor barrel 1, with liner 2,. The barrel 1 is cut away to receive a plate 3 carrying the magazine 7 and pawl gear 8 for moving the magazine step-bystep across the gun each time the normal breech block x is moved rearwardly by hand. The auxiliary firing pin 4 is fitted within a breech bolt or sleeve 5 moved rearwardly by a spring 6 when the block x retires, and the pin 5B on the sleeve then actuates the feed pawl 8 after an interval to allow the locking pin 5c to move clear of a recess in the magazine. The closing movement of the block x actuates the sleeve 5 to lock the magazine in the new firing position and the pin 4 to fire the cartridge.
