To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARRY NEWHALL Mc- GRATH, a citizen of the United States, residin at San Francisco in the county of San rancisco, State of alifornia, have invented a new and useful Gun-Firing Device, of which the following is a specification in such full and clear terms as' will enable those skilled in the art to construct and use the same.
This invention relates to a gun firin device and its object is to provide a gun ring device which iscapable of being concealed under the coat and fired when the hands are raised or at any angle.
i or robbery of a bank or cashier is attempted,
the robber usually demands that the cashier throw u his hands thus preventing him from firing a "pistol, as well as preventing him from securing a pistol to prevent the robbery.
In the present instance, means is provided to secure the pistol on the person in a concealed position and to provide means for firing the pistol which can be operated when the hands have been raised at the demand of the robber, the firing apparatus being concealed in the coat sleeve and extending tothe pistol and hand.
Other objects of the invention Wlll appear as the description proceeds.
An embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawings in which the same reference numeral 1s ap lied to the.
same portion throughout, but am aware that there may be modifications thereof.
Figure 1 is a view of the person having this pistol applied thereto, the person being shown without the coat, the coat when worn, I
being applied over the pistol and firing apparatus to conceal the same.
Fig. 2 is a view upon a larger scale of the iipparatus for holding the trigger firing ever.
Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the pistol showing an apparatus for firing the pistol by ppulling upon the firing wlre.
ig. 4 is a side elevation of th pistol showing a firing wire WlllCh 1s worked in the opposite direction to the previous form by pushing upon a button.
Fig. 5 is a front elevation of the button for pulling the operating wire.
Fig. 6 is an edge elevation of the button for pulling the operating wire.
Patented May 3, 1921. I
Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the cup for holding the button for p fishing the operating wire shown in Fig. 4, the button being shown depressed to prevent accidental firing of the pistol.
The pistol is indicated at 1 and is of an ordinary form of automatic pistol, carried by a suitable series of straps 2, 3, 4 and 5 which are fastened about the body of the person, the pistol being located just under the arm pit with its barrel pointing to the front.
On the side of the pistol stock there is a clamp 6 for 'securin a spiral tube 7 in place. wire 8, which is connected to a button 9 in a small casing 10, which. lies within the hand and whichis secured thereto by means of two straps 11 and 12.
The other end of the wire is connected to a suitable hook 12 lying just in front of the trigger 13. The hook 12' has a spring 14 connected with the guard 15 in order to hold the hook away from the trigger to prevent the accidental discharge of the pistol.
The casing 10 is open at one side so that by inserting the finger below the button 9 it is possible to pull on the wire 8 and thereby discharge the gun by. moving the trigger.
In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 4 and 7, the pistol is indicated at 15' and the clamp for securing the spiral tube toward the forward end of the gun by pushingr down on the button 19.
he cup 18 is secured to the hand by means of'two straps 26 and 27. In use the person can fire the pistol with the hands raised, by simply operating the fingers on either of the buttons 9 or 19 as the case ma be.
t is to be observed that when the person puts on the ordinary coat that the pistol and the operating mechanism extending The spiral tu e 7 contains a small barrel pointing forward at the side of the person, a tubular member connected to the pistol and adapted to extend along the arm, an operating rod within the tubular member for moving the pistol trigger to fire it, a spring for holding said operating rod in a safe position, an operating button within the reach of the fingers and means to secure said operating button to the hand.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand 1920.
