THICK WATER-GUN.

Specication of Letters Patent.

Patented May 17, 1910.

Application'led April 17, 1909. Serial No. 490,595.

Be it known that I,-ERAsTUs DE MOULIN, a citizen of the United States, 'residing at Greenville, in the county 4of Bond and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Trick Water-Gun, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to trick guns ot that general class especially designed for use by members of lodges, fraternities, secret or-A ders and similar organizations for initiating candidates.

The object of the invention is to provide` means whereby an ordinargy7 air riie may be converted into a water gun without the einployment of additional operating mechanism and without altering the general appearance of the rifle.

A further object is to provide a trick gun having a front and rear discharge, the rear discharge being'extended through the gun si t,

urther ob'ects and advantages will appear in the ellowin description, it being understood that various 'changes in form,v proportions and minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the ap ended claims.

In t e accompanying drawings :forming a part of this specicationz--Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a trick gun constructed lin accordance with my invention showing the parts arranged to produce a forward discharge. Fi .'2 is a similar vievv of the forward end o the gun showin the parts arranged to produce arearwa distaken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line lv-4f of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a longitudinal sectifon through a portion of -a modified form- O n.. v

imilar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all of the figures of the drawings.

The mechanism forming ythe subject matter of the present invention is desi ed for attachment to an air ride, whereby t e latter may be used as a water gun, and by way of illustration is shown applied to a Daisy air rifle of theA ordinary construction in which A5 designates the casing or housing, 6 the stock and 7 the false barrel.

Disposed within the false barrel is a transverse partition 8 dividing the barrel into two compartments 9 and 10, the chamber 10 servouterv end 'the gun si ht.

Arrang within the false barrel 7 is a true barrel 12 havingits inner end threaded 1n 4an opening 13 in the partition 8 and its the adjacent end of the false barrel 7 and provided with terminal threads 14 for engagement with a correspondingly threaded ca 15.

lounted for rotation within the false barrel 7 is a valve 16 having a' longitudinal bore, the walls .of which are threaded for engagement with the adjacent threaded end of the true barrel 12, said valve being provided with a latere-lil extending stop ange 17 and forming in eiiyect a cap or closure for the chamber 9.

Secured in any suitable manner to the exterior wall of the false adjacent the outer end thereof is. a discharge barrel er `tube 18, the mouth of which is extended in the direction of the plunger 11. The discharge barrel 18 constitutes a gun sight so .that when the valve 16 is adjusted to produce a rearward discharge and the operator presses the tri ger 19, the contents of the chamber wi be discharged through said sight in the' face of the operator.

Formed in the threaded portion 20 of the ,true barrel is a port 21 adapted to register with a port or passage 22` formed in the valve 16 and also with a port in the rear discharge barrel or sight 18. The valve 16 is so constructed that by rotating the llatte-r in one direction the ports 21, 22 and 23 register to permit a rearward discharge, and when the valve is rotated in the opposite direction said valve will cut Voli 'comm-unicat-ion between the4 ports 21 and 22 and thus ing to nece-ive water '-whena plunger 11 with- I projected longitudinally beyond barrel 7 at a point permit the discharge of the iiuid or other .projectable substancethrough the forward end of the true :barrel',after the cap 15 is removed.

- In operation the true barrel 12 and cap or valve 16are removed by grasping the threaded end 14 of said true barrel and rotating the same, after which a small quantity of water is introduced into the compartment 49 throu yh the open end of the false barrel. The p unger 11 is then retracted by manipulating the lever 24, thus causing the fluid in the compartment 9 to enter the compartment 10 through the opening 13 in the partition 8 and partly fill said chamber. 1f a rearward discharge is desired, the valve 16 is rotated on the threads 20 until the passage 22 registers with the ports 21 and 23, respectively, thus causing the water in the chamber 10 to pass through t-he true barrel l2 and ports 21 and 23 to the sight 18 where the liquid will be projected rearwardly in the face of the operator in the form of a line stream. To produce a forward discharge the cap 15 is removed from the threaded end 14 of the true barrel and the valve 16 rotated to cut off communication between the tube 18 of the true barrel 12 so that when the plunger 11 is released the water in the chamber l0 will be forced longitudinally through the true barrel l2 and be ejected at the forward end of said true barrel. 1t will thus be seen that the valve 16 serves the dual function of a closure for the chamber 9 and as a means for controlling the direction of flight of the projectable substance through the discharge passages of the gun. It will also be noted that the rearward discharge being extended through the gun sight is hidden from the view of the operator so that the gun has the appearance of an ordinary air rifle.

In Fig. 5 a gun has been shown provided with a sight 25 which is reversible and can be used as the means for discharging the projectable substance either forwardly or rearwardly while the barrel 7 is closed at its muzzle, it being unnecessary to use a valve with this form of device.

Having thus described the invention what is claimed is 1. A trick gun having a sight and provided with a front and a rear discharge, one of which is located in the gun sight.

2. A trick gun having a sight and provided with a forward and a rearward Adischarge passage, one of which is through the gun sight, and means for. rendering either passage inoperative.
