An summarize 1n the clannsy the novel features of elastic or other extensible band 8 is secured to the V construction" and novel Combinations "of outer end of braid 'l beyond the stock 2, which 50 fOr` Which DIOteCtOn iS desited extensible band 8 is adapted to be conveniently jIn' Seid dTaWlng hooked in the lower notch lc at the outer end of Fig; 1 'S e Side elevetien 0f One fOIIn 0f my barrel l as shown in Fig. 1. Instead of using a f bandqprojecting gun; showing a plurality of rubbandi 8 the braid 1 may have an extensible section ber bands mounted thereonread-y to :be projected formedV thereinand the outer end of the braid 55 be raised out of their respective notches: by4

the braid, the bands R being released in succession as trigger 4 is successively actuated.

The pulling of the braid 'I is effected by the trigger 4 which actuates the slide Y3, the inner end of the slide when retracted stretching the braid beyond the rear end of the barrel as shown in Figs. 2 and 3. Since braid 'I is maintained taut by the extensible member 8 (when the latter is hooked in notch Ic) the braid will normally yieldably maintain the slide 3 so thatV its inner end is substantially flush with the inner end of barrel I as in full lines in Fig. 2. Although there is no positive connection between slide `3 and braid 'I, nevertheless when slide 3 is shifted rearwardly as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2, the band 8 will necessarily yield and friction will be set up between braid I and slide 3 at Vthe bottom and rear end of the slide, which friction will be suicient to pull the portion of the braid, which overlies the upper edge of barrel i, enough to lift the end of the rearmost band R out of its notch Ia and thereby positively discharge such band. When the trigger 4 is released, slide 3 will again assume its normal position, and the increase in `length of `braid 'I caused by the release of the band, will betaken up by the elasticity of member 8 so that each successive band R will be similarly positively released.

By the above construction, the braid 1 used to release the bands R is at all times kept taut by the expansible member 8; and the Vslide 3 when pulled back by the trigger 4 contacts with braid 'I around the'breech of the gun while it is held taut under the tension of member 8. This tension holds the braid 1 along the bottom of the slide 3 and against the rear end of the slide 3, so that braid 'I is pulled just far enough and hard enough when retracted to positively release one band R. Upon releasing the trigger 4 the expansible member 8 immediately pulls slide 3 back into place ready for anotherv discharge; At the same time the slack is taken up in braid 1 so that, on the next pull of the trigger 4, the slide 3 contacts the braid at the breech of the gun in exactly the same way and positively releases the next load. Each load is discharged in the same `way and each time the expansible member serves to take up ,the slack, and the slide voperates to release only one band.

In order to load the gun, it is necessary to rst unhook extensible member 8 fromk notch Ic so as to remove the tension from braid 1I. The braid need not be pulled through the stock to produce the slack therein but the trigger action may be depended upon to do this. The gun may then be held in the left hand with the forefinger on the trigger. With braid I disposed directly over notches Ia the iirstl rubber R is held stretched over the first and second nger, and looped into the notch Ib at the outerend of barrel I. The band R is then pulled back slowly, and with the fingers of the right hand is pressed down into the outermost notch Ia overlying the braid 'I which readily conforms with the shape of the notch. The remaining bands R are loaded in the other notches similarly, and the extensible member 8 is again hooked into notch Ic at the end of barrel I. The gun is then ready for shooting, and in the embodiment shown in the drawing will shoot six times without reloading.

In Fig. 5 a modification is shown in which the `barrel l is provided with the notches Ia and the Vbraid 1, as in Figs. 1-4. A pulley I0 is mounted inthe stock 2 behind the barrel and around the pulley I0 extends the braid 1, the braid continuing forwardly below the barrel in the manner similar to that shown in Figs. 1-4. The underside of the barrel I is provided with a recess I1:

into which an offset portion IIa of a pivoted trigger II projects when the trigger is actuated, the braid being pulled by the offset portion IIa deflecting same into recess Ix, producing a result the same' as that described with reference to slide 3 of Figs. 1.to 4.

In Fig. 6 a further modification is shown in which the recess Iy for the offset portion I2a of the trigger I2 is formed in the inner end of barrel I rather than in the underside as in Fig. 5; but the braid I will be pulled in the same manner as that described with respect to Fig. 5, when trigger I2 is actuated, the entry of the offset portion I2a of the trigger in the recess Iy causing the braid to stretch and release the band R..

l. In a band projecting gun, a stock; a barrel simulating member mounted thereon having a notch adapted to receive the end of an Velastic band stretched between the cuter end of the barrel and the notch; a braid adapted tounderlie the end of the-band in the notch, a return bend guide for the braid in rear of the notch; said braid extending rearwardly around the guide and extending forwardly and Vsecured to the gun; the braid beyond the guide having an elastic portion for maintaining the braid taut; and trigger means in the stock adapted to engage the braid and, pull same sufficiently to release the band upon actuation of the trigger.

2.
