Description

(NoModeL) G, W. NORWOOD. Magazine Fire Arm.

No. 236,834. Patented Jan. 18, I881.

ATTORNEY5 N-PEIERS, PHOTO-UTHOGRAPHER, WASHINGTON, D. C.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE;

GEORGE W. NORWOOD, OF BAYOU LA GHUTE, LOUISIANA.

MAGAZINE FIRE-ARM.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 236,834, dated January 18, 1881.

Application filed October 9, 1880.

To all whom tt may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE W. N oawoon, of Bayou La- Ohute, in the parish of (Jaddo and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Fire-Arms and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

Figure 1 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view of a magazine shot-gun embodying my improvements. Fig. 2 is a sectional plan view of the same. Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view, enlarged, of the cartridge-carrier, and Fig. 4 is a transverse vertical sectional view of the same.

This invention relates to fire-arms; and it consists in the improved features of construction and combination hereinafter fully described, and particularly pointed out in the claim.

Referring by letter to the accompanying drawings, A designates the barrels of a double-barrel shotgun. I propose to connect a double-barrel shot-gun with Kings improvement on the Winchester magazine-rifle. We have therefore elected to apply the same to a double-barrel gun. In all respects save the following the mechanism is the same as that described and patented by N. King, May 22,

1866, No. 55,012. In this instance the barrels A are shot-gun barrels and the mortise D is enlarged to extend across the brecches of the two barrels. The sides of the carrier-block E are open to permit the transverse rod F to protrude on either side. The magazine-tube A is located beneath the web of the barrels, and the normal position of the carrier-block E (No model.)

is at the mouth of said tube A. The under face of the carrier-block E is provided with a downwardly-projecting stud, G, by which it may be moved to the right or left to carry the cartridge to either barrel. In this instance, instead of having one piston or firing-pin, M, I provide two, one for each barrel, and connect them at their rear ends by a cross-bar, N, so that both are driven forward by the hammer S, and the cartridge will be fired no mat ter which barrel it has been shifted to.

It is well known that sportsmen find difficulty in firing after the barrel has become foul from use, and where a single barrel only is at command this happens much earlier in the day where rapid firing has taken place. I therefore aim to adapt the repeating mechanism to two barrels to avoid this and other inconveniences.

I make no claim whatever to the magazine or repeating mechanism, but desire to confine myself simply to my improvements.

Having thus fully described my invention,

what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is- In a magazine-gun, the combination, with the tube A, hammer S, lock'lever, and carrier-chamber of Kings improvement 011 the Winchester rifle, herein shown, of the double shot-gun barrels A, the laterally-sliding carrier-block, and the double pistons M, connected at their rear ends by the cross-bar N, substantially as and for the purposes set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto attixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.

GEORGE W. NORWOOD.

Witnesses:

WM. HUroHINsoN, ROBERT TROTTIER.
