Fig. 14 is a fragmentary detail of the magazine of the machine gun.

Similar reference characters on the differ ent figures of the drawings indicate corresponding elements or features of construction. herein referred to in detail. I

As preferably constructed the novel machine gun comprises a wooden base 1 provided on its top with a vertical center-pin 2, the top of the base having a circular ball race or groove 3 therein concentric to the center-pin. A- suitable number of bearing balls 4%, 4;, are placed in the ball race and 'may be cheaply composed of burned clay. A

a with a head 9 arranged upon the platform 4 rangement.

'5. The trunnion-blocks support a trunnion or pinion 10 between them in horizontal ar- The trunnion or pinion has a head-11 engaging one ofthe trunnion-blocks and a-wing-nut 12 engaging theopposite one of the trunnion-blocks whereby the trunnioneblocks may be slightly-drawn together tosecurely clamp a gun stock 13 which has apiv ot hole 14 therein receiving the pivotal device 10, a portionof the gun stock being arranged between the trunnion-blocks.

The gunstock 13' has two projecting wings or side plates 15 and 16 integral thereon at a suitable distance'apart to provide a chamber or-lock-case. The upper portion of the gun stock has two upward extending side The gun stock is composed of wood and preferably has, metallic side plates 21 and 22 thereon. The journal members 19 and have upper and lower rounded portions 23 formed as segments ofa circle so that the magazine cylinder 24 which is provided may cylinder, the casing being secured in place by means of nails 29 driven through the late 27 and into the members 19 and 20'. he front plate of the casing has an aperture 30 therein. A spring 31 is arranged in the spring-casing so as to extend about the journal or axle members 19 and 20 and has one end portion connected to the magazine cylinder 24 by means of a nail or stud 32, the opposite end portion of the spring having a hook 33 which is inserted in an aperture 34 in the rim portion 28 of the spring-casing, so that the spring shall act to turn the cylinder in one direction.

A novel hammer is provided which comprises a beam 35 that is pivotally mounted on a pivot 36 supported by the members 19 and 20, the beam being arranged between said members and having an upwardly extending arm 37 on one end thereof that has a hammer head 38 on its end,

I the opposite end of the beam having a finger 39 thereon extending upwardly, the

arm 37 and the finger 39 being arranged on opposite sides respectively of the magazine cylnrder Preferably the beam 35 has reinforcing plates 40 and 41 secured thereto which conveniently add width to the end portion of the beam below the finger 39, which is desired. Astrong spring 42 is arranged between the side bars 17 and 18 and is connected with the finger 39 and also with an anchor-pin 43 connected to the side bars. Y The; spring normally holds the finger 39 against a stop-pin 44 which is secured to the wings 15 and 16. An operatlng shaft 45 is rotatably mounted in the wings 15 and 16 and has a crank arm 46 thereon provided with ahandle 47, and a suitable cam 48 is arranged between the win and secured to theushaft 45, and is suitab y shaped to constit'ute' a; rotary trigger to repeatedly tilt the hammer'in opposition to t e spring 42 and permit the spring to operate .the hammer, the cam bein arranged to have contact with the bottom 0 the beam below the finger 39. In its most simple form the cam is de signed to tilt and retract the hammer once oneach revolution of the operating shaft 45;

An improved gun is provided which comprises a cylindrical main ortion 49'and a ar-rel portion 50, preferab y composed of a single piece of" wood and havingra smooth bore 51 extending therethrough, the main portion being seated upon the side bars 17 and 18 and secured thereto by means of a screw 52 arranged in a projecting portion of the gun stock 13. The main portion 49 has a. longitudinal recess 53 at one side of the bore to permit the projectiles to be carried transversely into the bore adjacent to the breech-end of the gun. The under side of the main portion 49 has a recess 54 therein extending transversely which receives the peripheral portion of the magazine cylinder, said under side having also a longitudinal groove extending to the bore 51 and from the breech-end of the gun to receive the hammer head 38 and adjacent portion of the arm 37'. The arm 37 is of suitable length to carry the hammer head into the bore 51. The hammer head is of sulficient length to extend into one of the openings 26 or may be stopped against the cylinder 24 when none of the" openings is fair with the bore 51, to hold t e cylinder against rotation.

The magazine comprises also a stationary guide easing which is associated with the magazine cylinder and comprlses a clrcular metallic body portion 56 having lips 57 and 61 to guide the rear end of the projectiles.

The ring 61 has an opening 62 erein and a pivot 63 in proximity to the opening whlch supports a s utter 64 adapted to 0 0 opening. For the purpose of turnlng the magazine cylinder 24 a handle 65 1s connected to the outer face thereof and in such arran ment .that it is carried into contact with t e main portion 49 of the gun barrel when the last projectile chamber or opening 26 of the series is brought into alinement with the bore 51, to serve as a stop for the cylinder when emptied. The machine un is supplied with projec-' tiles 66, 66, having the general shape of a real cartridge or loaded shell, one end thereof being rounded to represent the nose portion, the opposite end being flat to 'be struck by the hammer head 38. The projectiles may be composed of various substance s, preferably of wood. In operation of the machine gun the cylinder 24 is turned by means of the handle 65 -in the direction op osite to that exerted by the actuating spring 31 while filling the magazine with the projectiles, 'so that the last projectile placed in the magazine cylinse the I der will be the first one to be carried into the gun barrel to be projected in the operation of firing the gun. To permit insertion of the projectiles the shutter 64 is first opened to uncover the opening 62, and the cam 48 is set so as to hold the hammer in retracted position permitting rotation of the cylinder. When it is desired to hold the cylinder temporarily against rotation the cam is turned backward until the hammer head 38 is spring-pressed into contact with the magazine cylinder. When each chamber or pocket 26 is brought to the opening 62 a projectile is readily inserted through the opening and into the chamber. Then each projectile is carried into the gun barrel by the rotating magazine cylinder the pro jectile prevents further movement of the cylinder. Havin filled the magazine the shutter 64: shoul be closed, the stationary portion of the magazine then preventing accidental dislodgment of the projectiles from the magazine. The machine gun is fired simply by the operation of the operating shaft 45 in one direction so that the cam or rotary trigger48 shall first retract the hammer and then permit the spring 42 to thrust the hammer forward so as to strike the projectile and suddenly force it out of the magazine cylinder an the gun barrel, the hammer being quickly retracted so as to permit the actuating spring 31 to slightly turn the magazine cyllnder and bring another projectile into the bore of the gun barrel, the firing operations being rapidly repeated until all the projectiles have been ejected; but the firing may be stopped at anfy time if the operating shaft be stopped. A ter the hammer has struck and ejected each projectile the finger 39 comes into contact with the stop-pin 44, and the beam 35 of the hammer may strike the hub of the cam 48 so, as to cause a noise in imitation of an explosion in the 11 barrel.
