0. OLSSON. GAME APPARATUS.

Patented Nov. 27, 1894.

INVENTUR.

STATES i l TE it OLAUS OLSSON, OF BROOKLYN, YORK, ASSIGNOR OF ONE-HALF TO JOHAN A. J OHANSON, OF SAME PLACE.

GAM E APPARATUS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 529,802, dated November 27, 1894.

Application filed December 18, 1893. Serial No. 493,954. (No model.)

T0 at whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, OLAUS OLssoN, a subjectof the King of Sweden and Norway, and a resident of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Game Apparatus, of which the following is a specification.

My invention consists of an improved arran gement of pivoted spring guns, with an inclosed field as the top of a table, pins to be set thereon for being knocked down, and grids at the ends of the field for reception of the balls shot from the guns in suitable relation with numbers or marks posted for targets, to identify the number struck by the ball as hereinafter fully described, reference being made to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1, is a perspective view of my improved game apparatus, and Fig. 2, is a detail in longitudinal section of the game on line sc-oc, Fig. 1, on an enlarged scale.

At each end of a table a, or other level plain bounded by vertical guards b, to prevent a ball and other objects used on the table from rolling off, I mount a spring gun d,a little above the surface of the table and so as to turn on the pivot e, in th plilnfiollhfijable for setting it in range with points anywhere along the other end of the table, as the different numbersf, figured on the inside of the end guards b,and in front of these end guardsI arrange the grids g, in the places of portions of,

the table top cut away, the bars of which guides are spaced in uniformity with the spaces of the numbers f. At a suitable height above the guides but below the numbers Iarrange flexible cushions h, one at each end against and partly under which the ball is shotfrom the gun so as to roll along the bars of the guard for approaching the target number in its range and strike and lodge under the cushion and be retained on the bars of the guard so as to remain and identify the number struck for counting the game. On the intermediate field of the table I arrange spots as j, for placing pins as 7c,'in any desired order for another feature of the play which may be counted alone or together with the count of the target numbers at the ends of the field. The guns are" affixed to blocks Z, by which they are pivoted to the surface of the table and they project outward through the end guards b, for convenience in contracting the springs m, by pulling on the knobs n, said knobs be-' ing attached to rods 0, extending through the breech into the bore and connected with a ram head 10, between which and the breech the spring is suitably arranged for being retracted when the knob is pulled back and for thrusting the ball when let go. A cushion q, in the breech and a collar 5 on the knob serve to relieve the force of the shocks of the recoil of the spring on the gun.

I 'claim The combination of theinclosed field, the pivoted spring guns at the ends of the fields, the grids at said ends the cushions on the guards back of and projecting over the grids at a suitable height for receiving the balls under them and retaining them on the grids by pressure on the balls, and the target numbers on the grids, said grids being in advance of the guards having the target numbers substantially as described.

Signed at Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, this 15th day of September, A. D. 1893.

- OLAUS OLSSON.
