ATTORN EY Patented Sept. 1, 1931 STATES PATENT OFFICE BERT B. GERKEN, F STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA- TOY GUN A Application led August 23, 1930. Serial No. 477,203.

This invention relates to toy guns of that notches and abouta roller 7 mounted in a type using' rubber bands as missiles; my crotch 8. This crotch projects upwardly principal object being to provide a gun of from the gun on the stock portion 2 in simuthis character designed in simulation of an lation of a rear sight. rThe strap thenv ex- 5 actual rifle or shotgun and arranged to sup- .tends downwardly and through a forwardly' 55' port a plurality of bands at one time, which sloping passage 9 in the stock to a connecbands are discharged by the movement of a `tion with an operatin block l0. control member in a manner similar to the This operating bloc is positioned similar manipulation of the ejector arm of a reto the ejector arm of an actual repeating l) peating rifle.

Similarly a further advance of the block 10 to .further straighten out the strap 6 Willrelease the 'next band and so on in succession until all the bands are finally released. The member 10 Will then be at the front end of the slot 12, and when it is desired to reload the gun it is only necessary to shift said member -to the rear end of the slot in order to give the strap 6 the necessary slack for loading purposes as previously described.

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,

the invention, as defined by the appended claims. f

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new and useful and desire to secure by Letters Patent is: v

1. A toy gun comprising a rigid body formed in simula-tion of a firearm, said body intermediate its ends having. a row of notches in its upper edge forming lugs therebetween to each engage and hold one end of a stretched band whose opposite end is engaged with the front end ofthe body, a

flexible strap secured at one end on the bodyv and adapted to be depressed into the notches and held against the adjacent walls of the lugs by the stretched bands and a control member slidably mounted in connection with the body and to which the opposite end of the strap is secured.

2. A toy gun comprising a rigid body formed in simulation of a firearm, said body intermediate its ends having a rowy of notches in its upper edge forming lugs therebetween to each engage and hold one kend of a stretched band whose opposite end is engaged with the front end of the body, a

flexible strap secured at its forward end onto the body ahead of the foremost notch and adapted to be passed over the lugs and depressed into the notches and held against the adjacent wall of the lugs by the stretched bands, a control member slidab-ly mounted in connection with and under the body for movement lengthwise thereof, the

rear end of the strap being connected to the rear end of said member; and a direction changing element over which the Strap passes between the rearmost notch and its connection with the member whereby the rear end of the strap extends in a forwardly facing direction.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature.

BERT B. GERKEN.
