Application June 30, 1945, Seriall No. 602,534

3 Claims. l 1

VThe present invention relates to toy guns and has for its object the provision of an improved gun for' discharging in succession rubber bands as missiles.

A still further object of the present invention is ythe provision of a gun of the type indicated andi wherein rubber-bands may be stretched upon the barrel" and dislodged from their stretched condition* by suitable means for discharging said rubber bandsY in succession.

With the above general objects in view and others that will appear as the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction, comb-ination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the appended claims;

In the drawing forming a part of this application andi in which like designating characters refer to corresponding parts throughout the several views;

Fig. 1 is a side elevational view of the toy gun;

Fig. 2 is a top elevational view thereof;

Fig. 3 is. a cross-sectional view on line 3-3 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 2; and

Fig. 5 is a similar view showing the rubber band dislodging means in a different position.

Referring tothe present drawing in detail there is shown' a gun including a butt Il), stock II, and barrel I2. Said stock II is formed of a pair of spacedl plates I3, which may beintegrally formed with said butt I and barrel I2.

Said plates I3 adjacent their upper edges are x provided with a plurality of alined teeth I4 and the resultant notches I5. Barrel I2 is provided with a transverse horizontally disposed groove I3 at its free end. Rubber bands I'I are each engaged within alined notches I in the two plates I3 and said groove I6. Each of said rubber bands bears against the alined teeth I4 and is in a stretched condition.

In order to dislodge said rubber bands II from within their respective notches I5, for the purpose of discharging the same, a suitable mechanism is provided and includes sliding plate I8 positioned between plates I3 for longitudinal shifting movement. Said plate I 8 is provided with a pair of longitudinally disposed slots I9, within each of which pin 20, passing through said plates I3, is located. Thus, said slots I9 and pins 23 constitute guiding means for said plate I8, permitting the longitudinal movement of said plate within stock II.

Said sliding plate I8 is further provided with lug 2l, extending from the upper edge of said plate I 8. said lug 2I extending above the upper edge. of said plate I8 and above the upper edges of said plates I3. Said lug 2| has an inclined rear wall 22, which, bearing against the portion of rubber band Il, stretched between a pair of alined teeth lll in two plates I3, and resting within the adjacent notch I5, as is clearly seen in Fig. 3, acts as a wedge for elevating the rear end of rubber band ll from the alined teeth I4, as said inclined wall 22 rides rearwardly when said plate i8 is shifted into the same direction. The action of said inclined wall 22 of lug 2l hereinabove described', shifts the rear end of rubber band I'I upwardly and along the rear faces of a pair of alined teeth It with which the same was theretofore in engagement, the rubber band thereupon being propelled away from .the gun and in the direction to which barrel I2 points.

Shifting movement of sliding plate I8 aforesaid is accomplished manually by engaging operators finger with one of a series of nger openings,y 23 which are arranged in a row adjacent the f lower edge of said plate I8. Adjacent the lower edge'each of said plates I3 is provided with recess 24 which permits at least two of said linger openings 23 to' be located therewithin at a given time, asis indicated in Fig. 4. When the rearmost opening 23 is engaged and plate I8 shifted as far as the rear" edges of said recess 24 will permit, position indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 4, the frontmost rubber band shall have been discharged. When this has been accomplished, the adjacent opening 23 is shifted into recesses 24 and adjacent the front edges thereof, ready to be engaged by an operators nger for further shifting of plate I8 rearwardly for dislodging the second rubber band. This operation is repeated until all of the rubber bands have been discharged. It is observed that there is a predetermined co-relation between the inclined face 22 of lug 2l and openings 23, on one hand, with recesses 24, on the other. tI requires shifting of plate I8 only to such an extent as s required to bring a given opening 23 from its forward position within recesses 24 to its rearward position with relation therewith in order to dislodge a single rubber band I'I from its engagement with an alined pair of teeth I4.

It is observed that since the rubber band which is engaged at the frontmost teeth I4 will be the first one to be discharged by operation of plate I 8, it is necessary to engage the same last with said frontmost teeth I4 and barrel I2.

While here is described herein a preferred embodiment of the present invention, it is nevertheless to be understood that minor changes may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.

What I claim as new is:

1. A toy gun for shooting elastic bands comprising a pair of spaced plates, said plates defining a stock of the gun, a barrel connected to said plates, a plurality of alined teeth upon said plates, each pair of aligned teeth being shaped to hold an elastic band which is engaged in a stretched condition over said barrel, a sliding plate positioned between said first named plates, a lug integrally formed with said sliding plate and extending beyond said teeth, said lug being provided with an inclined face for the purpose of disengaging said elastic bands from said teeth in succession for propelling the same when said sliding plate is shifted within said stock, said plates of said stock being provided with alined recesses, said sliding plate being provided with a plurality of finger openings arranged in a row and in the path of said recesses, said finger openings constituting means whereby said sliding plate may be engaged for shifting the same, and means cooperating With said plates and said sliding plate whereby the shifting of the latter plate may be periodically limited to the extent required for said lug to dislodge a single elastic band from the pair of said teeth with which the same is in engagement.

2. A toy gun for shooting elastic bands comprising a butt, a pair of spaced plates connected therewith, said plates defining a stock of the gun, a barrel connected to said plates, a plurality of alined teeth upon said plates, each pair of aligned teeth being shaped to hold an elastic band which is engaged in a stretched condition over said barrel, a sliding plate positioned between said rst named plates, and a lug integrally formed with said sliding plate and extending beyond said teeth, said lug being provided with an inclined face for the purpose of disengaging said elastic bands from said teeth in succession for propelling the same when said sliding plate is shifted within said stock, said plates of said stock being provided with alined recesses, said sliding plate being provided with a plurality of linger openings arranged in the path of said recesses, said recesses defining edges in the body portion of said stock plates which are disposed adjacent said barrel and like oppositely disposed edges adjacent said butt, no more than two of said finger openings being accommodated at any time within said recesses and between said edges, when the operators finger is engaged at the finger opening nearest to the first named edges for shifting said sliding plate in the direction of said butt the inclined face of said lug disengaging the elastic band from the pair of foremost of said teeth for propelling the same, the last mentioned shifting of said sliding plate bringing said last mentioned finger opening to the proximity of said second named edges, the operators linger coming in contact with said second named edges preventing further shifting movement of said sliding plate; the last mentioned shifting of said sliding plate being adapted to simultaneously shift the next of said finger openings within said recesses and adjacent said first mentioned edges for conditioning said lug for action upon the next of said elastic bands when the operators nger is engaged at said last mentioned iinger opening for repeated shifting of said sliding plate.

3. A toy gun for shooting elastic bands comprising a pair of spaced plates, said plates defining a stock of the gun, a barrel connected to said plates, a plurality of alined teeth upon said plates, each pair of aligned teeth being shaped to hold an elastic band which is engaged in a, stretched condition cver said barrel, a sliding plate positioned between said rst named plates, a lug carried by said sliding plate and extending between and beyond said teeth, said plates of said stock being provided with aligned recesses, said sliding plate being provided with a plurality of finger openings arranged in a row and in the path of said recesses, said finger openings constituting means whereby said sliding plate may be engaged for shifting the same, and means cooperating with said plates and said sliding plate whereby the shifting of the latter plate may be periodically limited to the extent required for said lug to dislodge a single elastic band from the pair of said teeth with which the same is in engagement.
