' I G. USTYNIK' I TOY GUN Filed April 17, 1923 Patented Oct. 2, 1923.

' GUSTAV US'IYNIK, 0F WHARTON, TEXAS.

TOY GUN.

Application filed April 17, 1923. Serial No. 632,663.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that GUSTAV UsrYNIK, a citizen of the United States, residing at Wharton, in the county of \Vharton and State of Texas, has invented certain new and useful Improvements in Toy Guns, of which the following is a specification.

This invention has reference to improvements in toy guns and its object is to provide a means whereby the trigger is put under stress to hold a rubber band and the stress band may be released by manipulation of thetrigger to allow the stress band to escape from the trigger in a direction to be propelled under its stress and thereby be shot forward to engage the target.

The gun is intended particularly for use by juveniles and for using rubber cartridges so that in the event of the engagement of the cartridge with the target no harm may follo .The invention I includes the gun stock which may be made of wood and comprises a barrel section formed of two longitudinally joined members constituting the 11 barrel with a trigger pivotally held therein and a hammer also pivotally held therein and engaged by an elastic band to be put under stress and maintained in a stretched position until the elastic band will pass from the stressed position and released thereby being automatically propelled toward the target.

The band on being released will immediately rebound toward the target and the rebound under the initial stress will be sufficient to carry the band for a considerable distance through the air.

There is also provided with the barrel and stock a hammer structure with connecting means which will automatically hold a rubber band and when the trigger is released from holding relation to the hammer, said hammer is released to the impulses of the rubber band and allowed to pass from engagement with the hammer to be propelled by the stress imparted to the band and so propel the band for a relatively considerable distance.

The invention will be best understood from a consideration of the following detail description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification with the understanding, however, that the invention is not confined to any strict conformity with the showing in the drawings but may be changed and modsalient features of the invention as expressed in the appended claim.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a toy gun embodying the invention; 7

Figure 2 is a plan View thereof;

Figure 3 is a side elevation of one-half of the gun with the pivots of the trigger and hammer in section;

Figure 4 is a perspective View of the trigger; and

Figure 5 is a perspective View of the hammer.

, Referring to the drawings, there is shown a gun stock 1 simulating in general shape a conventional gun stock with a barrel 2. The gun barrel 2 is split longitudinally and at the forward end is provided with an overhang 3 about which one end of a rubber band 4 may be passed. The gun barrel 2 is joined on opposite sides of its longitudinal center line with rivets 5, 6 and 7, of which one, the rivet 7, may be formed of a. screw to connect the opposite sides of the barrel together. i

The rivet 5 extends through a thin hammer 8 projecting above the top of the barrel and the rivet 6 extends through the trigger 9, the hammer and trigger being joined as at 10 by a spring 11 which may be put under longitudinal stress.

The hammer 8 extends above the top of the barrel for a distance andthe trigger 9 extends below the barrel for a distance. At the lower end of the hammer 8 there is formeda shoulder 12 while at the forward end of the trigger 9 there is formed an angle extension 13 adapted to seat against the. shoulder 12 to resist the blow of the spring 11. The hammer 8 and the trigger 9 are seated in respective cavities 14 and 15, permitting these members, which are quite thin, to move and escape from enparts 4 110 extension or finger 13 with the shoulder 12 of the trigger holding the parts in normal stretched position suflicient to cause the band 4 to be propelled from the muzzle of the gun for a considerable distance, say from six to twenty-five feet. The force imparted to the trigger by the band 4 is sufficient to produce the desired propelling effeet but insufficient to cause any injury should a person be hit thereby.

The missile represented by the band 4 being formed of rubber and having only a moderate degree of stretch and is suflicie-ntl v harmless to be inefi'ecti-ve to children.

What is claimed-is:

A toy gun having a gun barrel provided with a hammer and a trigger, the hammer reeae o a pivot connection for the hammer Within a cavity of the barrel, a pivotal connection for said trigger also Within the cavity, and means for extending the hammer rearwardly into engagement with one edge of said cavity, said means also serving to engage one end of the trigger and one end ofthe hammer to prevent release of the hammer, and to also return the trigger and hammer to a'set position after the trigger has been released.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
