9 Ciaims.

This invention relates to firearms such, for example, as repeating rifles.

The aim of the invention is to provide a firearm of the character described having various features of novelty and advantage, and which is particularly characterized by its neat, pleasing, and

symmetrical appearance, by its simplicity in construction and arrangement, by the economy with Y which it may be manufactured, by the ease and facility with which the parts may be assembled,

by the ready accessibility to the parts for repair,

cleaning, and general care, by its improved mechanical operations, and by the strength, du-

Y rability and reliability of the several mechanisms.

A further aim of the invention is to provide an improved and simplied arrangement for effectively feeding the cartridges from the magazine to the firing chamber of the barrel.

In accordance with the present invention, I provide an improved, effective, and highly reliable rea-rm ci the take-down type and of such simplied construction and arrangement that it may be manufactured and sold at a relatively low cost. The firearm has a barrel section and a stock section which are readily separable so that the gun may be taken down. The barrel section includes a frame and a barrel connected thereto, with the frame supporting the firing mechanism, the breech block mechanism, and the cartridge carrying or transferring means. The stock section includes a stock and a receiver connected thereto and adapted to house the frame and the mechanisms carried thereby. When the gun is taken an operation which may be easily performed, ready access may be had to the operating parts mounted on the frame. The arrangement is such as to permit of the receiver being economically made by pressing it into forrrr from sheet metal, it being observed that, since the receiver does not carry any of the operating parts, special machining operations, such as grooving, boring, etc., are not required and, therefore, the receiver can be economically made. Furthermore, the arrangement is such that screws or other fastening means in the sides of the receiver, together with their unsightiiness, are eliminated, thus enhancing the beauty and appearance of the firearm.

. Other objects will be in part obvious, and in part pointed out more in detail hereinafter.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combination of elements and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter set forth and the scope of the application of which will be indicated in the appended claims.

In the accompanying drawings, wherein is illustrated one of the embodiments which the present invention may take:

Referring to the drawings in detail, A denotes generally a frame which supports the trigger mechanism, the cartridge carrier, and the breech block and its associated elements and, in fact, all of the operating parts of the gun with the exception of the magazine. Secured to the forward end of the frame is a barrel B with which is associated a slide handle C which, when retracted, results in retraction of the breech block to withdraw the red shell, cooking of the striker, and movement of the carrier to a position where a fresh cartridge is fed to the firing chamber. The letter D generally designates the stock in which is located a magazine E. Secured to the stock is a receiver F which is preferably pressed from sheet metal and which is adapted to be slid onto and oli the frame and, when on the frame, to house the mechanisms carried thereby.

Referring first to the frame, the same includes a skeleton member having a base or bottom wall Vlil'and end wallsV I I and I2 at the rear and front ends, respectively, of the portion I0. The frame,

when the receiver F is removed, is open at its top and at each side. The end wall I2 has adjacent its upper end an opening which receives the rear end of the barrel B. The slide handle C, which as hereinafter described more in detail is supported for sliding movement on the under side of the barrel, has secured to it an extension rod I3 which projects through an opening It ,in the front wall I 2 and into a longitudinally extending groove I5 provided in the upper face of the body portion I l! of the frame. The upper face of the rod I3, adjacent its rear end, is fiattened as at I6, and this portion of the rod has a slot I 1. This slot receives a lug I8 of a breech block lock I9 which, as hereinafter described more in detail, serves Vto hold the breech block 35 imposition during the firing operation. The lock I9 alsoserves to cam the carrier 3'! up into position for delivering a cartridge to the firing chamber of the barrel. i

On the rear 'end of the extension rod is a rearwardly facing shoulder 2-I adapted to cooperate with a slide handle lock 22. This lock is preferably in the form of a stamped member pivoted to the frame A, as at 23, and having a nger piece 24 protruding downwardly through the frame member I and a trigger guard 3E] just forwardly of the bow 3l. It is observed that the portion of the finger piece 24 is such'as lto permit of a comfortableV operation/of the lock and also is conducive to 'good appearance of the firearm. The

' lock 22 also has a forwardly extending finger 25,

the front end of Vwhich is bent laterally so as to engage behind the shoulder 2I when the slide handle is in advanced position. The lool:Y also has Van upwardly extending finger 26 with which cooperatesy a lug 271 on Vthe striker 28. The slide handle lock is normally urged to operative V`(Le. locking) position by a spring 29. Upward movement of the finger 25 beyond locking position withrespect to the shoulder 2I Yis prevented by an ear 32 on the rear end of the slide rod. The

Y trigger guard 3ll is secured in place as by means Vof ascrew 33 to the under side of the frame A,

and its forward end constitutes a take-down lock, as hereinafter described more in detail. The breech block r35 is grooved throughout its length, as at 36, soas to accommodate the pivoted carrier 37. /The side portions or walls 33 ofY the `block rest on the upper face of the base portion I0 ofthe frame A on opposite sides of the-groove I therein. By preference, the width ofthe breech'block is coeXtensive with that of the frame. TheY lower edges of the side walls of the'breech block are notched, as at 4i), there being `at the upper forward corner of each notch, a'curved portion forming a seat 5I. The frame portion IU is provided at opposite sides with notches 42 which' are substantially coextensive to and in' registry with the notches 40 when the breech block is lin advanced or firing position. The rearward ends 43 of the notches 42 form generally forwardly facing shoulders with which Ythe breechblock lock I9 cooperates.

As Vshown in Fig. 14, the breech block lock I9 has a transversely'extending connecting portion 45 fromthe center'of which depends the lug i8 Y which projects into the'slot i7' previously de- Y scribed as being'located in the extension rod I3.

Extending rearwardly from opposite ends of the .connecting portion are arms and, at the forward ends of these arms, are curved trunnions 4'! which engage in the seats 4I which, as previously stated, are provided in the lower edges of the breech block. When the breech block is in advanced or firing position, the arms lie in the notches 52 with their rear ends opposed to the shoulders d3 so that the breech block is locked in place. When the striker is in its discharged or uncooked position shown in Fig. 2, the lug 21 thereon engages the nger 26 of the slide handle lock 22 so that the forward end of the finger 25 thereof is depressed beneath the level of the shoulder 2l on the extension rod and the slide handle may be retracted. When the slide handle is retracted, the breech block lock I9 is first swung up from the locking position shown in Fig. 2 and then the breech block may be retracted and the carrier moved to the cartridge delivering position shown in Fig. 6. It is, of course, apparent that, when the striker is cocked, the slide handle lock 22 may be manually operated by pressing backwardly on the nnger piece 25. When the slide handle extension is moved forwardly from the position shown in Fig. 6 to that shown in Fig. 2, the breech block, due to the member I9, moves forwardly therewith until the forward face of the breech block engages against the rear face of the front wall I2 of the frame, and then the'member i9 is carnrned downwardly so as to engage the rear ends of the arms thereof with the shoulders i3 on the frame.

The carrier 3l for transferring the cartridges from the magazine E to the firing chamber of the barrel consists of a single length of metal which may be in the form of a rod or bar having a bore 5l! extendingY through its length. The carrier is pivoted at Aits Yrear end on a pin 5I located adjacent the rear end of the frame so that the rear end of the bore registers with the forward end of the magazine at all times. The forward end of the carrier has such relation to the rear face of the front wall l2 of the frame that the foremostcartridge within the carrier, as urged forwardly by a magazine spring 52, will engage that face. By preference, this face is provided with a vertical shallow groove 52 so that the nose of the foremost cartridge is suitably. guided and held against lateral wobbling. It is desirable that the depth of the groove gradually increase as it approaches the ring chamber so that as the carrier is moved upwardly duringrthe feeding movement Ythe 4foremost cartridge will move slightly forward under the urge of the spring 52 and when the cartridge has been brought into delivery position with respect to the firing chamber it will have already acquired some momentum in the Yright direction. The carrier 37 is operated in timed relation with the breech block by the4 slide handle acting through the extension rod I 3 and the breech block lock I9. In the present illustrative disclosure, the pivoted carrier engages and rests upon the cross portion 45 of the breech block lock, and the under surface of the carrier is so shaped that the movements of the carrier are properly synchronized with those of the block. As previously stated, when the slide handle is retracted, the breech block is moved from the position shown in Fig. 2 to the retracted position shown in Fig. 6. During such movement, the rearwardly moving lock I 9 cams the carrier from the position shown in Fig. 2 to that shown in Fig. 6. When the slide handle is advanced, the breech block is advanced and the carrier will move back to the position shown 1n Fig. 2. It may be here observed that the carthe cartridges.

tridge carrying means comprises but one part which is of simple construction and which may be manufactured at a low cost. With the arrangement described, long or short cartridges may be used indiscriminately without the use of cartridge stops or other elements for holding back the cartridges following the foremost one as the latter is being delivered to the firing chamber, it being clear that each cartridge, in effect, serves as a cartridge stop for the cartridge behind it.

The magazine E is shown as being of the tubular type. It includes an outer tube 53 and an inner tube 5d. The outer tube extends from the rear end of the stock D up to an opening 55 in theY rear wall H of the frame. The opening 55 registers with the rear end of the bore 50 in the carrier and constitutes, in eiect, the front end of the magazine. For the purpose of filling the magazine, there is provided in the lower edge of the stock, and preferably immediately behind the pistol grip 56, an opening 51 of suitable size and shape to permit the introduction or entrance of Within the tubes is a usual spring 52 the forward end of which is connected as by means of a stud 59 to a exible follower 60 having on its forward end a piece 6I adapted to engage the rear end of the rearmost cartridge in the magazine or the carrier, as the case may be. The follower is made flexible so as to accommodate itself to the movements of the carrier and is of such length as to extend into the carrier sufciently to deliver the last remaining car,- tridge directly from the carrier to the firing chamber. It is, of course, understood that when it is desired to supply the magazine with cartridges. the inside tube is withdrawn so that the forward end thereof is rearwardly of the opening 5l. After the desired number of cartridges is supplied to the magazine, the inside tube 54 is moved forwardly.

For the purpose of locking the inside tube 54 in its forward position, I provide a novel and simple arrangement which will now be described. As shown in 1Figs. 7, 8, and 9, the rear end of the inside tube is provided with a latch which includes a finger piece 62 fixed to a plug 63 slidably fitting in the rear end of the tube 54 and having limited movement with respect thereto, the movement being limited by a pin 64 extending through an elongated slot 65 in the plug. One side of the finger piece 62 is of reduced thickness to provide a laterally extending ledge 66. Secured to the rearend of the stock is a shoulder piece 61, and the rear end of the stock and this piece has a recess 66. The stock at one side edge of this recess is grooved so as` to provide a forwardly facing shoulder 69 on the shoulder piece. With this arrangement, when it is desired to withdraw the inside tube to lill the magazine, the nger or thumb is placed against the knurled rear surface of the finger piece 62 and the latter is turned from the full line to the dotted line position shown in Fig. 'l so' as to disengage the ledge 66 from the shoulder 69, whereupon the magazine spring will cause the latch to move rearwardly from the full line position shown in Fig. 8 to the dotted line position and, in which latter position, the finger piece may be readily grasped. To lock the inside tube in advanced position, this operation is reversed.

En order to' prevent the breech block from accidentally falling out of place when the receiver is removed, the breech block is provided on its lefthand side wall with inwardly extending projections 96 which are adapted to take into a groove 8l provided in the adjacent side of the carrier and terminating short of the rear end of the carrier. With this arrangement, when it is desired to assemble the breech block on the frame, it is merely necessary to bring it into position (see Fig. 6) over the rear end of the carrier and then move the breech block forwardly to thereby engage the projections in said groove. The breech block has a longitudinally extending bore 82 in which is slidably mounted the striker 28 having a firing point 84 on its forward end. It has at its rear end the depending lug 21, and a sear notch 86. The striker is held against rotation within the bore 82 by an internal projection 88 in the bore and engaging in a longitudinal groove 89 in the striker. The striker is bored out for a portion of its length so as to accommodate the forward end of a mainspring 99, the rear'end'of which encircles a guide 9| which has an end stud 92 engaging in a recess in the rear end wall I I of the frame.

The striker is released by a trigger mechanism which includes a trigger 93 of the usual construction, a connector 94, and a sear 95. The trigger is pivoted to the frame as at 96 and is connected tothe connector 94 by a pin 91. The sear is pivoted on a pin 98 and has its rearwardly extending portion above the connector 94. 99 designates the sear spring. The forward end of the sear is arranged to cooperate with the striker in the usual manner. Carried by the trigger guard 3B and associated with the trigger is a safety H56 which may be of any suitable type, it herein being illustrated as of the cross bar type.

'Ihe breech block 35 is equipped at its forward end with a pair of opposed extractors iBS adapted to engage in front of the rim of the cartridge at opposite sides thereof so as to withdraw the cartridge from the firing chamber when the breech block is withdrawn. These extractors may be pivoted and spring pressed in the usual manner. For the purpose of ejecting the cartridge when it has been withdrawn from the firing chamber by the extractors, there is provided on the top of the carrier 31 an ejecting shoulder or point iii so located that when the cartridge has reached a point where it registers with an ejection opening IDT in the receiver, the cartridge is forced from the extractors in a direction which carries it through this opening. It will be recalled that the carrier is swung upwardly and the breech block is retracted when the slide handle is drawn back. The swinging movement of the carrier and the rearward movement of the breech block are so synchronized that the ejecting point IGS will be brought up behind the rearwardly moving cartridge just at the right time to effect ejection of the cartridge.

The slide handle C and extension rod I3 are connected together and mounted in a novel and advantageous manner. As shown in Fig. 12, the barrel B has a depending apertured lug H9, and the slide handle is provided with an elongated recess Il! for accommodating this lug. The extension rod is of reduced diameter at its forward end so as to provide a forwardly facing shoulder H2. Upon the reduced portion cf the rod, and engaging the shoulder i i2, is a washer H3 engaging against the rear end of the slide handle. The slide handle has a through bore l I, the rear end of which receives the reduced portion of the extension rod forwardly of the washer. The forward end of the rod is internally threaded, as at H5. The numeral H6 designates a screw extending through the forward end of the bore in rear end of the screw is screwed into the forward end of the Vextension rod. Afterthe screw is Vturned home, the handle is held tightly between the "head of the screw'and the washer; The

j parts are so'V proportioned and positioned that, when the handle is moved to its full retracted when the handle isY moved to its limit of travel in either direction.

The receiver is made of sheet metal by stamp- Ving and pressing. It comprises a generally U- shaped member having atransversely curved top V,iits Vin the rear end of the receiver.

wallV |2ii, plain, ilat side walls |2|, and inwardly curved ilanges |22 along the lower edges -of the vside walls. The receiver and frame are substantially coextensive in length. The forward'end of the receiver corresponds in size and shape to the forward end of the frame so as to closely receive the same, and the rear end of the frame likewise The ilanges E22 are curved correspondingly to the lower longitudinal corners of the frame and engage and underlie the'bottom of the frame, as shown in Fig. 5. The forward end ofV the receiver, when detached, is open, and the space between'the opposed edges of the iianges |22 forms a slot for r.. accommodating and receiving the triggerguard 3Q so that the receiver may be moved'into and out of position by longitudinally slipping it onto and oiT the frame. The ejecting opening |01 is provided in one ofthe side walls I2|, in the present instance the right-hand one, as is usual. vThe rear end of the receiver has its edges fol-ded or pressed inwardly so as to provide flanges |24 which constitute, in eiect, an end-Wall on the receiver. vThis end wall engages against the forward end of the stock and is clamped thereagainst by a washer or plate |25 which is ,drawn up against the flanges by a stock bolt |26 of 'conventional type. g

V IThe stock section inclu-ding the stock and the receiver, and the barrel section including the barv rel, the frame, and the operating parts carried by the frame, are secured together in a take-down manner, and as previously stated the forward end yor the trigger guard 3i) constitutes a portion of the'take-down locking device. In the present illustrative disclosure, the trigger guard extends forwardly to the end of the frame-and, as shown in Fig. 3, has. adjacent its forward end and on opposed sides laterally extending lugs or ears |2-'| which are adapted tobe received by opposed notches |28 provided in the edges of the anges 22 adjacent the forward end of the receiver. The guard is resilientV forward of itsr pointiof attachment to the frameso'that it may be moved out of locking position and will spring back into locking position with respect to the receiver. This forward end of the trigger guard constitutes, in effect, 'a take-down lock which is moved to nonlocking position'by a lever |29. This lever is in the form of a T-shaped member located in a T- I shaped slot |3 in the'und'erY surface ofthe frame and covered by the forward end of the trigger guard. The cross arms'of the lever are so proportioned that, when the lever lies iiat in its T- Vshaped slot, as shown in Fig. 2, the said arms are :flush with the surface of the frame and the'lugs Ythe slide handle andthe apertured lug H50. The

may engagein the notches |28. When the lever is swung to the position shown in Fig. 6, the forward Vend of the trigger guard is sprung away from the frame permitting of the cover-being slipped from position longitudinally of the frame. The nger or stem portion of the lever projects slightly beyond the forward end of the frame, and it is knurled so as to make a good thumb grip. TheV forward end ofthe trigger guard is longitudinally slotted, asat |3i, so as to accommodate the stem of the lever.

It is observed that thereceiver, since it is made of sheet metal, may be manufactured at a relatively low cost while at the same time the receiver has a very neat and pleasing appearance, it being 1 devoid of visible screws or other securing devices. The locking connection between the receiver and the frame is on the under side of the frame and does not detract from the symmetrical, pleasing appearance Vof the receiver. The receiver with the stock may be very quickly and readily'detached from the barrel section by merely swinging the lever |29 and then sliding Ythe receiver endwise inv a rearward direction off Vthe frame.'

The receiver may be positioned about and locked to the frame with equal facility. All of the operating parts, with the exception of the magazine spring, are carried by the frame and, as this frame is of openwork construction, the parts may be readily assembled thereon and are readily accessible for cleaning and repair. The receiver requires no machining operations for mounting the operating parts thereon, it being clear that the receiver, when detached from the frame, is entirely free of operating parts, whereas it has heretofore been the usual practice to provide an expensive forged receiver requiring costly operationsfor housing certain of the operating mechanisms in such manner that ready kaccess coul-d not be had thereto.

Also, in accordance with the present invention, I provide a simple, relatively cheap and improved adjustable peep sight which will now be described. In the present illustrative disclosure,'there is provided in the forward endY of the stock and just behind the receiver an internally threaded block |35 which 4may 'be held in place by the stock bolt |26 and which may be made more secure'by a dowel pin |36.` The numeral itl designates a yoke having'a threaded stem |38 screwed into the block. Pivoted to the yoke,- as by means of a pin |39, Vis an apertured sight piece |40. The sight may be raised or lowered by half turns of the stern within th'e'block, the threads being so ne that the amount of vertical adjustment of the sight on each half turnlis relatively slight. The sightr is hel-d in any desired position of adjustment by asprin'g ilii anchored at one end Vas at |152 to the; block and having its free end'adapted to selectively engage in longitudinal slots |43 provided onopposite sides of the stem; The slots are so Vpositioned that when the spring engages in either of them the apertured sight member is held in proper position for sighting.Y

As manychanges could be made inthe above construction andV many apparently widely diiferent embodimentsk of this invention could be made without departing from the scope thereof,

it is intende-d that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawingsshall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Itis also Ato be understood that the language used in the'iollowing claims is intended to cover all of the generic and specic features of the inventio-n herein described and all statements of the scope of the invention which, as a matter of language, might be said to fall therebetween.
