FOUNTAIN PEN PISTOL Filed Aug. 12. 1954 50/ H. 'ay/orddn Jamls Talh'iz qer' By W H at m fii FOUNTAIN PEN PISTOL Sol HarryGaylord, J12, and James Tollinger, Chicago,

111., assignors to. Gaylord Products, Incorporated, Chicago, [1]., a corporation of'Delaware;

Application: August 12, 1954, SerialNo. 449,416 2 Claims, (Cl. 42-1 "spring. After the firing pin carrier has beengthus drawn to 'its fully retracted position, it may be held in cocked position by the thumb of the user, or it may be released by removal of the thumb from the carrier to permit the compressed spring to move the carrier rapidly toward its firing position to discharge a cartridge. Upon firing of the cartridge the compression spring serves to yieldably resist therecoil of the cartridge shell toward a recoil partition provided in the stock of the pistol.

Another object of the invention resides in the provision of a single shot pistol adapted to be cocked and fired by holding the stock with the fingers while the related thumb is employed to cock and release the firing pin carrier.

A further object of the invention resides in the provision of firing pin carrier provided with an actuating arm, extending along and toward the front end of the gun barrel to facilitate retraction of the carrier by the thumb of the user.

Another object of the invention resides in the means employed for detachably mounting the actuating arm on the firing pin carrier.

Another object of the invention resides in the provision of a single shot pistol in which the several parts thereof are secured in assembled relationship by means of a clip provided to support the pistol in a pocket of the user.

Another object of the invention is to provide a single shot pistol which is relatively simple and inexpensive to manufacture, reliable in use, and readily disassembled and assembled to facilitate cleaning, repairs, and replacement of parts.

The invention embodies other novel features, details of construction and arrangement of parts which are hereinafter set forth in the specification and claims and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Fig. 1 is an end elevational view illustrating a single shot pistol embodying features of the invention.

Fig. 2 is a side elevational view of same.

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 4 is a longitudinal sectional view taken along the line 4-4 of Fig. 2.

Referring now to the drawings for a better understanding of the invention, the single shot pistol is shown as Comprising a barrel 6 mounted in axial alignment on the Cir Patented July 29, 1 95s 2 1 forward end of a stock7 to simulate the appearanceof a conventional fountain pen. i

The barrel 6 is formed with a rifled boreps and a breech or chamber 9 to snugly receive the shell lljofa rim fire cartridge 12. The breech end of'the barrel 6 is threaded at 13 into the forward end of the stock 7. The stock 7 is provided with a recoilrwall 14* formed with an aperture 16 to slidably receive a firing pin- 17 mounted on the forward end of a carrier 18. 4

The firing pin carrier 18 is mounted for reciprocative movement within a bore 20. in the stock 7 and is formed with a transverse slot 19 in registry with a slot 21 in the stock to snugly receive the base 22 of a cocking arm-23. The carrier 18 is formed'with an axial bore 24 terminating in spaced relation to the slot 19 to form a wall 26 37, the base being formed with a seat 38*ha'ving spaced shoulders 39--39-' engaging diametrically opposed sides of the stock. The slots 3434 are preferably disposed in a plane angularly spaced from the slot 21 to'dispose the cocking arm 23 in a plane normal to the plane of the clip 37. The cap 32 is formed with a head 40 which projects rearwardly from the end of the stock.

A helical compression spring 41 is interposed between the latch 28 and cap 32 to yieldably resist rearward movement of the firing pin carrier 18 relative to the recoil wall 14 of the stock 7. The spring 41 is also normally subjected to compressive forces during assembly of the pistol, thereby normally retaining the latch pin 29 in its recess 31, and also engaging the cap 32 in the clip seat 38 between the shoulders 39--39. A guide pin 42 is provided on the inner end of the cap 32 to be encircled by the adjacent convolutions of the spring 41. 1

The cocking arm 23 extends in a forward direction alongside the barrel 6 and is provided at its outer end with a rounded, knurled surface 43 for engagement by the thumb of the user in cocking or retracting the firing pin carrier 18.

The mounting clip 37 also extends in a forward direction alongside the stock 7 with its free end spaced along the side of the stock to receive therebetween the portion of a garment upon which the pistol.is to be supported.

In loading a cartridge 12 into the pistol, the barrel 6 is first removed from the end of the stock 7. The cartridge is then inserted into the breech or chamber 9 and the barrel is reassembled on the stock. To fire the piston, the stock is held between the palm and fingers of one hand, and the related thumb is employed to engage and retract the cocking arm 23. Upon release of the arm 23, the spring 41 moves the carrier 18 toward the cartridge to cause the firing pin 17 to strike and fire the cartridge to propel the bullet 46 outwardly through the barrel 6. 7

It will be noted that the pistol may readily be dis assembled for repair or cleaning by pressing the cap 32 inwardly to permit removal of the mounting clip 37; after which, the cap 32, spring 41, carrier 18, latch 28 and cocking arm 23 may be removed from the stock 7.

While the invention has been shown in but one form, it is obvious to those skilled in the art that it is not so limited, but is susceptible of various changes and modifi- We claim:

1. A single shot pistol simulating the appearance of a fountain pen, comprising a stock having coaxial front and rear bores spaced apart by a recoil wall having a firing pin aperture, a barrel threaded into said front bore and having a breech to receive a cartridge, a carrier mounted for reciprocative movement in said ear bore and having a transverse slot and an axial bore, a firing pin on the forward end of said carrier to project through said aperture and engage and fire a cartridge positioned in said breech when the carrier is moved in a forward direction, a cocking arm having a base mounted in said slot on said carrier to be manually engaged by the thumb of the user to retract the carrier, resilient means to move said carrier in a forward direction, said cocking arm projecting laterally through a slot in said stock and extending a substantial distance along the barrel toward the front end of the latter to facilitate cocking and firing of the pistol by the thumb When the stock is engaged in the palm of the hand of the user, and a latch slidably mounted within the axial bore of said carrier and engaged by said resilient means to detachably secure said cocking arm on said carrier.

2. A single shot pistol simulating the appearance of a fountain pen, comprising a stock having coaxial front and rear bores spaced apart by a recoil wall having a firing pin aperture, a barrel threaded into said front bore and having a breech to receive a cartridge, a carrier mounted for reciprocative movement in said rear bore and having a transverse slot and an axial bore, a firing pin on the forward end of said carrier to project through said aperture and engage and fire a cartridge positioned in said breech When the carrier is moved in a forward direction, a cocking arm having a base mounted inv said slot on said carrier to be manually engaged by the thumb of the user to retract the carrier, resilient means to move said carrier in a forward direction, said cocking arm projecting laterally through a slot in said stock and extending a substantial distance along the barrel toward the front end of the latter to facilitate cocking and firing of the pistol by the thumb when the stock is engaged in the palm of the hand of the user, and a latch slidably mounted Within the axial bore of said carrier and engaged by said resilient means to detachably secure said cocking arm on said carrier, a cap telescopically engaged in the rear bore of said stock, said stock and cap having aligned slots, a mounting clip having a base detachably mounted in said aligned slots, said resilient means being interposed between said latch and said cap.
