To all whom 't may concern: n
` Be it known that I, THOMAS C. JoHNsoN, a' citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in the county of New Haven www I and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Impact- VIlluininating Bullets; and I do hereby declare the following, when taken in connection with the accompanying drawings and the characters of reference marked thereon, to be a full, clear, and exact description ofthe same, and which said drawings constitute part of this application, and represent, in-
Figure 1 a view in side elevation of a bullet constructed in accordance with my invention. Fig. 2 a corresponding view with the nose of the bullet in section. Fig. 3 a
view partly inelevation, and partly in section of one of the modified forms which my improved bullet may assume.
My invention relates to an improvement in impact-illuminating bullets, the object being to produce a superior bullet of the character described.
With these ends in view, my invention consists in an impact-illuminating bullet provided upon its nose With a superficially applied percussion-igniting flash-light composition having a protective and retaining envelop.
In carrying out my invention as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, I superficially apply a concentric, or substantially concentric, coating or thin crown 2 of any approved percussionigniting flash-light composition to the nose of an ordinary round-nosed bullet 3, and superimpose upon the same, a protective envelop et which not only prevents the composition from being abraded, but also assists in retaining it in place upon the nose of the bullet and in making it less sensitive without sensibly impairing its effect as an illuminating agency. Whatever the form of the nose of the bullet, the composition will be superficially applied to it in the sense that the surfaces of the bullet will not be chambered or indented for the reception of the percussion-ignitng flash-light coating 2. The composition will-becompounded with reference to the effect to be secured, and may be one of a great number of percussion-igniting compounds flashing on im-` with a minimum amount of smoke. If desired, the compound may be adapted to detonate 'in addition to producing an illumination. The compound may be applied in a variety of ways, as, by dipping, or painting, orwiping the nose of the bullet with a composition which, on hardening, will adhere to it. As shown, the coating 2 has the form of a thin concentric crown or cap relatively thick in the middle and tapering uniformly in all directions to a thin edge. The protective envelop 4 is applied in any convenient manner over the flash-light composition 2 preferably after the same has been allowed to dry and serves to bind it together, to render it less sensitive, and to prevent its deterioration, as well as to protect it against abrasion and to assist in holding it in place. For the said protective envelop 45, I may employ collodion, glue or-any other material producing a thin, resistant envelop.
In Fig. 3 I have shown a full-jacketed pointed bullet having a soft-metal core 5 and jacket 6, the extreme point of the jacket hav- .ing superficially applied to it a concentric crown 7 of percussion-igniting flash-light composition protected and held in place by a cons-like protective and retaining envelop 8 of collodion, glue or other equivalent material. i
By applying the flash-light composition superficially to the surface of the nose of the bullet rather than introducing it into a chamber in the nose of the bullet, or into indentations in the nose of the bullet, the composition is entirely unobstructed in burning by the metal of the bullet, whereby its fullest illuminating effect is obtained. By arranging the self-igniting charge upon the nose of the bullet in concentric, or substantially concentric form, I secure a circular, or virtually circular, field of illumination of which the point of impact is the center, whereby the greatest amount of information is furnished to the user of the gun from which the bullet is fired and the most pleasing effect secured.
I claim'z- As a new article of manufacture, an impact-illuminating bullet having a charge of percussion-igniting flash-light composition superficially applied directly upon its nose, and having a protective envelop superimposed directly upon the flash-light composi- Q 1,oss,o27 i ton for the protection thereof whereby upon specficaton in the presence of two subthe impact of the bullet the composition is scribing witnesses. ignted by percussion and a brilliant momentary lluminaton of the point of impaet THOMAS C' JOHNSON' 5 produced for the information of the user of Witnesses: j the gun from Which the bullet Was fired. FREDERIC C. EARLE,
In testimony whereof, I have signed this C. L. WEED.
