GAME DEVICE.

To all whom z' may concern.'

Be it known that I, GEORGE S. GUMAER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Coronado, in the county of San Diego and State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Game Devices, of which the following is a specification..

rlhis invention is an improved game device or toy, and which I call a ground gun, the object of the invention being to provide an improved device of this character for use for playing marbles or for knocking balls along the floor or ground and without the necessity of stooping or kneeling and which is adapted to be used by a person in an upright and kneeling position.

The invention consists in the features of' construction, combination, and arrangement of devices, hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings z-Figure 1 is partly an elevation and partly a sectional view of a ground gun constructed and arranged in accordance with my invention and showing the same cocked and ready for firing. Fig. 2 is a detail sectional view of the same, with the parts in firing, or ball knocking position. Fig. 3 is a detail sectional view of a modified form of my invention. Fig. 4 is a similar view, showing another modied formof my invention. Fig. 5 is a sectional view of another modified form of my invention.

Referring rst to the form of my invention shown .in Figs. 1 and 2, a cylinder or barrel 1 is provided which is adapted, when the device is in use, to lie Hat on the ground or floor and is provided with an upwardly extending inclined handle 2 of suitable length, in practice from twenty-four to thirty inches in length and which is provided at its upper end with a pistol grip 3. The lower end of the handle is attached to the barrel at a point about mid-way between the ends of the latter. At its front end, the barrel is provided with an opening 4 of less diameter than its bore 5, a plug 6 is detachably secured in the rear end of the barrel.

A cylindrical hammer 7 is arranged for longitudinal movement in the barrel, fits snugly therein, and is provided with a forwardly extending arm 8 of reduced diameter, which passes through the opening 4. In the upper side of the hammer are teeth or cockmg shoulders 9. A coiled spring 10 of suitable size and strength is arranged in the rear end Specification of Letters Patent.

of the barrel and bears between the plug and the rear end of the hammer and is adapted to violently project the hammer forwardly when the latter is released. I also provide a trigger wire 11 which is arranged on the rear side of the handle 2, is longitudinally movable through suitable guides 12, and is provided near its upper end with a rearwardly bent nearly circular portion 13 which forms a trigger. rI`he rear end or upper end of the trigger wire operates in a bore 14. A spring 15 is in the said bore 14 and exerts its tension against the rear or upper end of the trigger wire so as to move the latter downwardly and hence, when the hammer 7 is forced rearwardly in the barrel, against the tension of the spring 10, the lower end 16 of the trigger wire is engaged with one of the teeth or shoulders 9 of the hammer to hold the latter in cocked position as shown in Fig. 1.

By placing a marble or ball A in front of the barrel and then pulling the trigger to cause the trigger wire to release the hammer, the spring l0 projects the hammer and causes its arm 8 to knock and propel the marble or ball in the desired direction.

The ground gun enables a person to play a game such as marbles or the like, without the necessity of stooping or kneeling as will be understood.

If desired, a hinged joint can be made at the junction of the barrel with the handle, so that by forcing the handle forwardly it may be caused to pull back the spring 10 and facilitate the cocking of the hammer as will be understood.

In the form of my invention shown in Fig. 3, the handle 17 is connected to the rear end of the barrel 18 and extends upwardly and rearwardly therefrom. The hammer is shown at 19, provided'with a series of cocking notches 20 and has a bore or chamber 21 in its rear end and in which the projecting spring 22 is arranged and is wholly contained when the hammer is in cocked position. rIhe trigger wire 23 has a forwardly extended portion 24 connected to pivoted links 25 and has a down-turned front end 26 to pass through an opening 27 in the barrel and engage one of the cocking notches 20.

In the form of my invention shown in Fig. 4, the hammer 28 has a small rearwardly extending arm 29 which is provided with a series of cocking openings 30, any one of which may be engaged by the lower grip 39 is secured under the rear end of the f trigger Wire 31.. rThe hammer projecting` spring' is Iindicati-,ed at 32, The reduced,l orwardly 'extending arm 33 of the hammer is provided at its front end with an enlarged head 34 in Which is a recess 35 for receiving the marble or ball by the device.

ln the form of my invention shown in Fig. 5, the handle 36` is-tubular and is a rearward extension of the barrel 37 and is bent at 38 at an angle thereto. 'A pistol end of the tubular handle and is provided with a trigger 40. The projecting spring 41 is arranged in the rear end of the tubular handle. The hammer or plunger 42 is a disk which is attached to the. front end of the spring and is adapted to be engaged and held in cocked position by the trigger.

to be projected Having described the invention, what is claimed 1s: v

The herein described ground gun comprising a/barrel, a spring actuated plunger 1n the barrel, having a tooth, a handle attached to the barrel and arranged at an an-` gle thereto, a trigger Wire mounted for longitudinal movement in guide devices on the handle and arranged to engage its outer end with the tooth of the plunger when the latter is retracted, and a spring to hold the trigger Wire in engaged position.

' In testimony whereof I alix my signature inxpresence of two witnesses.
