INVENTOR OSKAR SCHNITZER BYW/WLMQW ATTORNEYS CARTRIDGE CASE BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION the like with a fitting disposed at one end, which has an internal and an external section.

It is conventional in shot cartridge cases to provide, at one end of the case which is manufactured, for example, for cardboard or stain-hardened plastic, a twopiece fitting comprising an internal bottom plug, insert piece, or the like, of, for example, cardboard or plastic, and an external metal cap. These two sections are joined to the end of the case by radially compressing the metal cap by means of a suitable tool after the case and the bottom plug have been introduced therein, so that the case is held between the metal cap and the bottom plug by frictional contact. Depending upon the requirements, it is also possible to provide the metal cap, either additionally or by itself, with one or several indentations,corrugations, or the like extending in the circumferential direction, so that a shape-mating or form-locking connection is established between the metal cap and the case end. This type of connection between the case end and the fitting,however, has the substantial disadvantage that the manufacturing expenses are rather substantial in order to obtain a strength of the connection satisfying all requirements.

Although it is further known to produce pipes, casings, or the like integrally with a fitting provided at one end, for example to mold the same from plastic, this manufacturing method cannot be employed when widely varying requirements must be met, e.g., from a mechanical point of view, by the pipe, the casing, or the like, and the fitting. Thus, it has been impossible heretofore, e.g., in the production of integrally manufactured completely plastic shot cartridge cases, to reliably prevent undesired crack formations furing firing at the seal or closure of the front end of the case, due to an insufficient mechanical strength of the case shank.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is the aim of the present invention to overcome the above-mentioned disadvantages in connection with the example of shot cartridge case. In particular, it is a main aim of the present invention to simplify the manufacture of the connection between the pipe, the casing, or the like, and the fitting, with the strength of the connection remaining at least as satisfactory.

The underlying problems are solved in accordance with the present invention by connecting the two sections of the fitting in a shape-matting or form-locking manner, and by holding the end of the pipe, the casing, or the like, therebetween by means of shape-mating and/or frictional contact. If, in this connection, the shape-mating junction between the two sections of the fitting is constructed, for example, in the manner of a screw connection, it is possible to vary in a simple way the strength of the connection by threadingly engaging the two sections of the fitting to a greater or lesser extent.

To attain a simple assembly of the individual parts, which is thus as economical as possible, it is advantageous to provide in a suitable embodiment of the present invention that the external section of the fitting annularly surrounds the internal section thereof and can be connected with the internal section in the manner of a snap connection. In this connection, at

.least one of the sections is made of a sufficiently elastic material.

For the purpose of obtaining as great a strength as possible of the coupling between the pipe, the casing, or the like and the fitting, on the one hand, with as favorable a stress distribution as possible in the pipe, the casing, or the like,- on.the other hand, it proves advantageous in accordance with a further suggestion of the present invention to fashion the two sections of the fitting and one end of the pipe, the casing, or the like, in the zone of the shape-mating and/or frictional connection, substantially with truncated cone surfaces having a generating angle of about 45.

The connection can be still further improved by providing, according to a further suggestion of the present invention, at least one of the sections of the fitting, in the zone of theshape-mating and/or frictional connection, with fine .grooves, serrations, or the like extendingin theperipheral direction of the pipe, the casing, or the like. If both sections of the fitting are provided withsuch a surface shape, it is, of course, necessary to make sure that the grooves, serrations, or the like are arranged and constructed in both sections so that weakening or even severing of the material of the pipe, the casing, or the like is reliably avoided under all circumstances.

The above-described invention, which can be employed, for example, for sealing one end of plastic casings, e.g., for blasting cartridges, can be used particularly advantageously in all cases where widely varying requirements must be met by the properties of the pipe, the casing, or the like, on the one hand, and the properties of the fitting, on the other hand, such as, for example, in the use as a shot cartridge case wherein the internal section of the fitting is formed with a primer support and an axial flash hole. Here, it is possible to select for the case shank a tough and high-strength plastic, e.g., strain-hardened low-pressure polyethylene, and for the external fitting section with the groove for the extractor of the firearm, as hard a plastic as possible, for example a polyamide or a polycarbonate.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING These and further features, advantages and objects of the present invention will become more apparent from the following description when taken in connection with the accompanying drawing which shows, for purposes of illustration only, an embodiment of the present invention, and wherein:

FIG. 1 is a cross-sectional view of the individual components of the shot cartridge case prior to assembly;

and

FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view of the finished shot cartridge case.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING Referring now to the drawings and, in particular, to FIG. 1, the case 1 is made, for example, of strainhardened low-pressure polyethylene and is tapered at the end 2 into a truncated cone having a generating angle of about 45. From the other end, the internal section 3 of the fitting is inserted in the case 1, namely with the end having the annular head 6. At the other end, the internal section 3 is provided with an annular, cylindrical extension 7 serving for receiving the propellant charge and resulting in a reinforcement of the shot cartridge case and an improvement in the ignition and conversion of the propellant charge. The internal section 3 is further provided with the bearing portion 8 for receiving the primer cap 9 and with the axial flash hole 10.

The section 3 is passed in the direction of arrow A with the annular bead 6 through the end 2 of the case 1, optionally with appropriately widening the latter elastically, and is pressed into the external, essentially annular section 4 of the fitting to such an extent until the annular bead 6, under corresponding elastic deformation of one or optionally also both sections of the fitting, snaps into the corresponding annular shoulder 11 formed in section 4. This snap connection between sections 3 and 4 is constructed so that the end 2 of the case 1 is sufficiently firmly clamped between the sections 3 and 4 and is thus held securely by means of frictional contact and, when the material of the case 1 is sufficiently structurally rigid, also by means of shape-mating or form-locking connection.

An additional increase in the strength of the connection is effected by the grooves in section 4, extending in the peripheral direction, the dimensions of which are, of course, selected in such a manner, in dependence on the material of the case, that optimum conditions are achieved with respect to the strength of the coupling. Since the section 3 is elastically compressed when being pushed into the section 4, the primer cap 9 is suitably inserted in the section 3 only when this section is already in shape-mating or form-locking connection with section 4.

The assembled shot cartridge is illustrated in FIG. 2, wherein the parts identical to those in FIG. I bear the same reference numerals. The cartridge has propellant charge 12 within the annular cylindrical extension 7 of the section 3. This propellant charge is covered toward the front end 14 of the case by means of the interposed element 13 made, for example, of felt or cardboard, and resting on the extension 7. The shot charge is disposed between element 13 and the front end 14 of the case, which is closed off, for example, by folding, in a conventional manner.

The primer cap 9 inserted in the support 8 presses the internal section 3 more or less strongly against the external section 4, depending on the dimensions of the primer cap as related to those of the support 8, and thus prevents an unintended detachment of the shape-mating and/or frictional connection of the pipe, the case 1 or the like with the fitting, even, for example, when one of the two sections of the fitting should be subjected to a minor plastic deformation during the assembly, which could entail, if the primer cap 9 were not inserted subsequently, under certain circumstances, an undersired reduction of the contact pressure between the two sections of the fitting. Furthermore, the pressure of the propellant gases forming after ignition is effective along the same lines, i.e., supporting the shape-mating and/or frictional connection.

While I have shown and described only one embodiment in accordance with the present invention, it is to be clearly understood that the same is susceptible to numerous changes and modifications as will be apparent to a person having ordinary skill in the art, and I, therefore, do not wish to be limited to the details shown and described herein, but intend to cover all such changes and modifications within the scope of the present invention.
