TOY GUN.

Applieation filed l'anuary 25, 1927. Serial-1E0. 163,385.

This invention rel-ates to a toy gun and it has. particular reference to a toy gun adapted for shooting rubber and other e las-- tie bands, and its principal object resides in the provision of'a harmless but mterestmg toy, havingihe form and characteristicsot an actual weapon, upon which ma be placed a multiplicity of rubber bands to e released in rapid succession-at a target with remarkable accuracy. r

Another object of the invention resides in certain facilities by which it is possible to extend Without difficulty the length of the barrel of the 'gun,'to adjust the same according to the size and elasticity of the bands comprising the ammunition.

The invention further aims among its objects to provide a novel co-ordinatin trigger and band retaining mechanism, w ereb with a minimum amount of moving parts,

accuracy and precision. 5 v I With these foremost objects in view, the invention has particular reference to its salient features of constructionyand arrangement of parts by which the said objects are attained, and which will become apparent from the following detail description and illustrated in theaccompa'nying drawings, wherein: i

Figure 1 represents a longitudinal crosssectional view of a toy gun constructed according to the present invention.

Figure 2 is a fragmentary detail view of thebarrel extension adjustment, and

Figure 3 is a side elevational view of the gunon which is operatively disposed a series i of rubber bands.

Continuing now more in detail with the, drawings, it will be noted that while the" latter illustratesva facsimile of 'the' revolver type of weapon, the rifle may be imitated as wellwithout departing from the construction of arts employed and herein described.

he pistol rip 1 and barrel 2are composed prefera 1y of afsingle piece of matenal such as woodfor economy, a'nd'with a suitable saw or like instrument, an open- 3 and accurately alined with the barrel 2' *is a. toothed wheel 4, whose teeth are not diingf'in the form of a; slot 3 is made inthe breech portion of the body. Within the slot' rected radially outward from the wheel but whose ends. as they appear at the u per portion of the device in the rotation o the from the teeth, and the lower wheel are all directed rearwardly with respect to the barrel 2 as apparent particularly in'-Figure 1. This.wh eel is mounted to freely rotate upon a rivet 5, passed' through thegun, and is controlled in intermittent rotation by the member 6 serving a dualjpurpose as a verge and trigger.

The bands 7 are stretched over the nozzle of the gun and constrained from dislocation by a notch 8' provided therein, and then placed in the spaces intermediate the teeth on the wheel 4, the teeth by their character as above explained, serving as hooks to receive one end of the several bands. The tension of the bands will of course cause the wheel to rotate forwardly to release the bands in succession.

The controlling' or actuating member 6 therefore-when in one position, is designed to constrain the wheel 4 from rotating and to control the release of the bands at will,

and in such capacity, the finger designated at a. engages the teeth of the wheel 4 consecu-.

tively when thelower end of member 6 is positioned forwardly, as the bands 7 are released and 'th wheel rotates.

The trigger e ement 6 'is likewise formed to define a stop b somewhat below and spaced from the finger a, hence providing a form of escapement'mechan'ism in which both the finger a and stop 6, contacting dif- .fe'rent teeth of the wheel, co-ordinate to control the tension of the bands upon the wheels through a single trig er, whichis equibalanced on t he pivot 9. v t will therefore be seen that'a movement of member 6 I on its pivot releasing finger a will at the,

same timecausestop Q to approach another tooth.

Conseggi'entlyiwhen the bands '7 are'placed as descri ed and shown in Fig. 3, and as the wheel and member 6 are shown in Fi 1,. the finger a contacts the teeth of the whezl 4, which tends "to move the finger w away end of the trigger 6 rearwardly, to bring the stop I) in contact ,with teeth in advance of the one released by a.

Each time the trigger is actuated lease the finger a, the removing bands maintain the tension on the wheel, to urge the teeth. successively againstv the stop b, in which position the wheel may be held positively. b the operator pressing 7J the lower end of t e trigger rearwardly by the finger to re- U Q of his hand When the operator releases I the trigger, the wheel will advance and move I invention.

the lower end of the trigger forwardly and the finger a rearwardly in a position pre-fl .which a number of pins 11 are driven. A

metal strip 12 having therein L shaped slots 13 is arranged. toibe inserted into the slot .10 in order that the pins 11 may be received in the slot13 and slid rearwardly with respect to the gun body-to lock the pins within the longitudinal positions of the slot to s curely hold the strip. Should a larger rubber bandbe used requiring greater tension,

it is necessary only to replace the metal strip 11 on the pins nearer the end of the barrel 2 whereby the end of 'the strip will extend beyond the end of the gun;

'Manifestly, the construction showii is capable of considerable'variation and such variation as is in keeping with the appended claims is considered within the spirit of the What is claimed is 1. In a toy gun a barrel having a slot formed therein remote from its forward end; a wheel rotatably mounted in said slot and having peripheral -teeth formed at a.

common anglewith respect to their respective radii for the reception of elastic bands to be stretched over the end of. saidbarrel, a trigger memberpivoted adjacent to said wheel, and. spaced contact means integral with said trigger member engageable with theteeth of said wheel to successively hold and release said teeth, and other means .in-

tegral with said member 'for manually actua'tingthe latter on its pivot I 2. A toy gun having a barrel and a slotted grip portion,a wheel rotatably mounted in said slot and having peripheral teeth for holding thereon eleastic bands under'tension, an escapementmechamsm comprising a lever member pivoted adjacent said wheel and having one end engaging the said teeth sue-- cessively as the wheel rotates, a stop device said slot and havin spaced from said engaging end for contacting teeth singly when the said end is released from the wheel, and the opposite end projecting below the said slot to serve as a trigger member by manual actuation, to release thesaid engaging end and sto alternately from the teeth and the ban s from the'teeth.

3. A toy gun having a barrel and a slotted grip portion, a wheel rotatably mounted in peripheral teeth for holding thereon elast1c bands under tension, a lever member pivoted adjacent said wheel and having at one end a pair .of longitudinally spaced contact shoulders engaging the said teeth alternately as the wheel rotates, and the opposite end projecting below the said slot to serve as a trig er member by manual actuation, to release't e'several teeth singly from the said shoulders and the bands from the teeth.

4. A toy said slot and having peripheral teeth for holding thereon elastic bands under tension gun having a barrel and a slotted' grip portion, a wheel rotatably mounted in between the teeth and the 'outer end of the barrel and thereby normally actuate the I wheel in rotation, a lever member pivoted adjacent said wheel and having spaced portions for engaging the said teeth successively as the wheel rotates, and projecting below the said slot to serve as a tug er member by manual actuation to release tl ie said teeth from the lever. I

5. A toy gun having a barrel and a slotted grip portion, the forward 'portion of said barrel having a longitudinal slot spaced from the slot inthe grip portion and the longitudinal slot opening throughout its length to permit insertion therein of a barrel extension, adjustably, the slotted portion of thebarrel having spaced, transverse pins positioned lengthwisethereof and said ex- I tension having in its upper edge spaced L- notches for receiving therein certain of said pins whereby the outer end of the extension may be adjusted toward and from the-end of the barrel, means in 'the grip portion for holding. thereon elastic bands 'under tension between said means and the outer end of said' extension, and means 'projectin below the grip slot for releasing the ban from the said holdingmeans. I

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
