TOY GUN Filed Jan. 21, 1929 INVENTOR BYQ ATTORNEY Patented eh. 25, 1930 PATENT OFFICE JOSEPH IB. FISHER, F STRATHMORE, CALIFORNTA.

TOY GUN Application filed January 21, 1929. Serial No. 333,897.

A further object is to provide an improved,

means for facilitating the loading of the disc with a number of the bands so that even a small child may easily accomplish this operation, and to prevent the loading from being then effective unless the barrel of the gun is pointed down and so training the user in the proper handling of actual fire arms during this loading operation.

A further object of the invention is to produce a simple and inexpensive device and yet one which will be exceedingly eflective for the purpose for which it is designed.

These objects I accomplish by means of such structure and relative arrangement of parts as will fully appear by a perusal of the following specification and claims.

In the drawings similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views:

.Fig. 1 is a side elevation of my improved gun.

Fig. 2 is a fragmentary sectional elevation of the gun showing the same unloaded.

Fig. 3 is a similar view of the initial operation in the loading of the gun.

40 Fig. 4 is a similar view showing one band engaged with the disc.

Fig. 5 is a similar view showing the subsequent movement of the loading member and with another band also mounted on the disc.

Fig. 6 is a similar view showing the trigger after it has been pulled and a band has been discharged. I Fig. 7 is a fragmentary top plan view of the gun.

59 Fig. 8 is a perspective view of the lever member for facilitating the loading operation's.

Referring now more particularly to the characters of reference on the drawings, the gun may be made of wood or pressed metal and comprises essentially a barrel 1, a stock 2 and a butt 3, these parts being shaped and proportioned to simulate an actual fire arm which may be a rifle, shotgun, or revolver. The stock 2 is formed with a vertical slot 4: in which the operating mechanism is located as will now be described.

Disposed in the slot land mounted on a shaft 5 is a disc 6 which is considerably narrower than the slot and is provided with a plurality of radial lugs7, preferably four of such lugs being used. 'The disc is disposed so that its upper periphery substantially alines with the upper edge of the stock, the lugs of course successively projecting above the stock. v I

Pivoted in the slot below and somewhat ahead of the shaft 5 is a trigger 8, the lower portion of which projects below the stock as usual for engagement with a finger. The

trigger at its upper forward end, above its pivot, has a stop A to project into the path of the disc lugs, and has also another stop B disposed rearwardly of and below said pivot to also project into the path of the lugs. The stop B in addition serves as a weight, being so disposed relative to the trigger pivot as to cause the stop A to swing away from the path of the lugs as the gun is held with the a barrel sloping up and the disc is not loaded, so that there is then nothing to prevent free rotation of said disc. When the gun is held with its barrel sloping down, however, the trigger will swing in the opposite direction or so thatthe sto A will project into the path of rotation o the lugs so as to then prevent rotation of the disc in one direction.

' As in the previous device rubber bands 9 are used as the missiles, which bands are all caught at one end by a notch 1 cut in the outer end of the barrel and are then stretched to extend to and are caught by the successive lugs 7 about the disc. The bands exert a rotative pressure on the disc, tending to rotate the same forwardly, which tendenfj is nor mally restrained by the lug which at the time bears against the top of the stop A of the trigger. Another lug then projects upwardly above the stock as shown in Fig. 4, so that when the trigger is pulled rearwardly so as to move the stop A clear of the lug engaged thereby, the tension of the band.

will cause the disc to rotate and in so doing will release itself and fiy off into a space. As soon as the trigger is pulled, stop B passes into the path of the lug previously engaged by the stop A as shown in Fig. 6, limiting the rotative movement of the disc. Assuming that another band is still engaged by'a disc lug, the rotative pull of this band on the disc will cause the trigger to be automatically shifted forward when the finger pressure is released, and in so vdoing will move the stop A under the lug above, prevent ng further rotation of the disc until. the trigger is again pulled, when the above movements are repeated. It will thus be seen that the disc is automatically permitted to rotate. to discharge a missile and is again held so as toprevent more than one missile being discharged, with each pull on the one piece trigger mechanism and without the aid of any springs or other additional features.

In the previous device it was necessary to load the disc by rotating the same backward by hand. This was inconvenient and awkward especially for a small child and I have therefore provided an improved disc rotating lever to facilitate loading operations.

This lever comprises a continuous and substantially flat loop 10 of wire or the like which is disposed just over the slot 4 and has side plates 11 which project between the disc and sides of the slot. These plates have longitudinal slots 12 therein through which the shaft 5 freely passes. The forward portion of the loop is raised as shown at C to form an arch normally straddling the missile hands when loaded, while the rear portion. of the loop forms a cross bar D. WVhen the shaft 5 is at the forward end of the slot 12, the lever:

lies adjacent and parallel to the stock and the cross bar D is then engaged by a'c-atch pin 13 fixed on the stock at the rear end of the slot 4, and preventing downward movement of the lever into the slot. As the lever is pulled forwardly, however, the cross bar isv disengaged from the catch pin, and by the rearwardly, turning on the shaft 5 as an axis,

the cross bar will 'engage'the nearest lug and will rotate the disc rearwardly. The

. finger of the same hand holding the gun at stretched by the other hand and engaged with thestock may then be used to retain a hold on the lever while the rubber band is being the lug then uppermost. A release of pressure on the lever (with the gun barrel sloping down) will cause a forward lug to engage the stop A, preventing forward rota tion of the disc; The lever may then be restored to its original position if desired, or

if further loading operations are to be carriedout it may be retracted a sufficient distance to cause the cross bar to engage another lug, when the backward movement of the lever and the consequent backward rotation of the disc may be repeated.

From the foregoing description it will be readily seen that I have produced such a device as substantially fulfills the objects .of'the invention as set forth herein.

.While this specification sets forth in detail the present and preferred. construction of the device, still in practice such deviations from such detail may be resorted to as do not form a departure from the spirit of claims.

the invention, as defined by the appended Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and useful and desire'to se cure by Letters Patent is:

1. In a toy gun to shoot eleastic hands, a rotary member, a plurality of lugs project-- ing radially therefrom to be each engaged with one 'end of a band, a trigger pivoted under the member, astop formed with the trigger and adapted to project behind one lug to then prevent rotation of the member I in one direction and another stop on the above the pivot thereof and adapted to pro ject' behind one lug to then prevent rotation of the member in one direction and another stop on the trigger disposed below and rearwardly of said first named stop to project behind the same lug only after the trigger has been pulled rearwardly and the first named stop has been disengaged fromthe lug.

3. A structure as in claim 1 in which said last named stop serves as a weight which is arranged" to cause the upper end of the trigger and the first named stop to swing forwardly and clear vof the lug unless thegun is held wigha downward slope toward its forward en 4. In a toy gun toshoot elastic hands, a rotary member, a plurality of lugs projecting radially therefrom to be each engaged with one end of a band, said band being then stretched whereby to tend to rotate the member in one direction, releasable trigger means for normally'preventing such rotation, and

lever means permanently mounted on the gun to detachably engageone lug on the disc at a time to turn said disc a certain distance, in

the opposite direction against the resistance of the band. v

5. In a toy gun to shoot elastic bands, a rotary member, a plurality of lugs projectin radially therefrom tobe each engaged wit end of a band, said band being then stretched whereby to tend to rotate the member in one direction, releasable trigger means for normally preventing such rotation, a leverpive oted in connection with the member and having a cross bar on its rear end to engage a lug of the member, and means formed with the lever pivot means for enabling the lever to be moved lengthwise of the gun at will to withdraw the cross bar from the movement of the lugs. L

6. In a toy gun to shoot elastic bands, a rotary member mounted in a vertical slot provided in the stock of the gun, a shaft on which said member is pivoted, lugsprojecting radially from the member to be each engaged with one end of a stretched band, trigger means normally preventin rotation of the member in the direction in uced by the pull of the bands, a lever normally lying along the top of the stock and slot, a cross baron the rear end of the lever to project into the path of rotation of the lugs, and a plate depending from the lever into the slot and having a longitudinal slot through which the path of shaft projects whereby said shaft may form.

the axis of rotation of the lever and also permit the lever being shifted longitudinally of the gun.

7. A structure as in claim 6, with a catch pin mounted on thestock to detachably engage the cross bar only when the lever is disposed in its normal position and the said'cross bar is rearwardly of the path of the lugs.

8. A structure as in claim 6 in which the forward end of the lever is .formed with an upstanding ,arch extending laterally and disposed in the central transverse plane of the stock'to then straddle a band engaged with a lug.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
