JOHN C. KELTON, OF \VASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

CARTRI DG E-PAC K.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 394,373, dated December 11, 1888. Application filed April 8, 1887. Renewed May 9, 1888. Serial No. 273,359. (No model.)

To all whont it may concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN C. KELTON, acitizen of the United States, residing at \Vashington city, in the District of Columbia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cartridge-Packs, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which Figure 1 represents a sectional view of a suitable case for containing the cartridges. Fig. 2 represents a perspective view showing the cartridges removed from the case and packed together ready for use. Fig. 3 illustrates the cartridges partially inserted into the chambers of the fire-arm. Fig. 4 is an enlarged view of the frangible encircling band. Fig; 5 is a detail of the detachable portion of the core, showing the grooves within which fit the flanged heads of the cartridges. Figs. 6 and 7 represent modifications to be referred to.

This invention relates to means for rapidly reloading the chambers of fire-arms. It is an improvement on Letters Patent No. 331,891, granted to me December 8, 1885; and it consists in the construction and combination of devices which I shall hereinafter fully describe and claim.

To enable others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to make and use it, I will now describe its construction and indicate a preferred manner of carrying the same out.

In the said drawings, A represents a suitable case, within which the cartridges are assembled and carried upon the person. This" case is provided with an upwardly-projecting two-part corrugated core, B B, of truncated form, the upper portion, B, being about 011efourth the entire length of the core, the said core being constructed of any suitable material, although I prefer to use wood or corrugated paper for the lower part, B, and securely fasten the same to the bottom of the case A. Around this core B B, which tapers slightly from its base to its top, the cartridges C are assembled, and secured at their head portions by a continuous inelastic band, D, composed of some fr. ngible material-such as strong paper-having a slight truncated form, within which the cartridges maybe instantly slipped and securely held. The cartridges are assembled around the core at such an angle with its axis as will just permit the points of the projectiles to partially enter the chambers of the fire-arm as far as their metallic case, so that when forced downward by a sudden blow the frangible band D, which confines them to the upper portion, B, of the spindle, will be instantly ruptured to permit the released cartridges to enter their respective chambers. It is evident that the angle maybe either outward or inward and produce the same result.

As shown in Fig. 7, the core may consist, for

ordinary use, of only the upper truncated part, prolonged to nearly the length of the shell, having recesses for the flanges of the shell or a cap, a, of wood or metal, at the larger eX- tremity of the core. In this case the lower ends of the cartridges,when assembled around the core, come together instead of being separated, and are so drawn together by the frangible band that they will only enter the chamber to a point where the projectile has about attained its full diameter.

To prevent the cartridges from becoming detached from the core in transportation with the points up, as well as to assist more positive insertion into the chambers of the pistol in loading, the upper section, B, of the core or spindle should be recessed, as shown at a, to receive the flanged heads of the cartridges; or, if desired, a cap, a, of wood or metal, having a head of a diameter sufficiently large to cover the heads of the cartridges, may be secured to the top of the upper section, B, as shown in Figs. 3 and 7.

As each pack can best be carried in a covered case-such as A-it will be best, in order to assemble the cartridges for use, to have the lower or larger part of the core temporarily attached to the case, the cover of which may be of any suitable water-proof material to protect the band C from atmospheric influence.

Having thus described my invention,what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. The combination, with a case having a centrally disposed core, around which the cartridges are assembled, of a frangible band encircling the projectiles and adapted to be ruptured upon forcin g the said projectiles into the chambers of the fire-arm, substantially as described.

2. A cartridge-case having a centrally-disposed tapering core, in combination With a pack of cartridges held together by a frangible band, whereby the forcing of the proj ectiles into the chambers of the fire-arm insures the destruction of said band and the releasing of the cartridges, substantially as specifled.

3. A cartridge-case having a two-part core of truncated form and a pack of cartridges arranged around the same, in combination with a band of frangible material encircling the upperportions of the cartridges, said band being of truncated form and adapted to be ruptured, substantially in the manner .set forth. 1

4. In a cartridge-case, a corrugated centrally-disposed tapering -core, having an upper detachable section, and the projectiles ar ranged around said core and at an angle With its axis, in combination With a band of frangible material encircling said projectiles and adapted to be ruptured upon compressing the loWer ends of the same, as herein described.

5. In a cartridge-pack, a case having a tapering core provided with a detachable upper section, having means for engaging the heads of the cartridges and holding the latter in position, in combination With a band of paper encircling said cartridges and adapted to be ruptured to automatically release the same, substantially as describec JOHN C. KELTON. lVitnesses:
