Be it known that I, Bonner CriYNn, a

' subject'oi the King of.Great Britaim residing at Alton, in the county of Madison and State oi. Illinois, have invented j certain new and useful, Improvements in fihot-Beceptacles, of whichithe following is'a specificaparticularlyjdesi gned and inn-shipment, and, use of air. rifle shot for air rifles. H a

. The improved receptacleorcontainer is adapted not only for use as' anloriginalpaekage by the manufacturer o1 such air rifie shot but is designed for use bythe merchant or retailer in storing andhandling, aswell as for use by the users inconveniently carrying and dispensing such shot in conven ent quantities as needed forQuse .in loading or filling the air rifle. 2

Theprimaryob ect otthe invention is to provide a generally improved receptacle; for

the purposes mentioned which will e2;- ceedingly simple 111 construction,

,With the above mentioned, andotherends in View, the invention consists in the novel construction, arrangement, and combination of parts, hereinafter described, illustrated in someoi' its embodiments in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed Referring to the drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side elevation of the improved shot receptacle. Fig. 2, an end-xview of r the cap or delivery- .end

thereof, the rotatably mounted cap beingin its open position for the convenient delivery of a single shot. Fig. 8, asimilar view, the cap being shown in a further open position for theconvenient delivery of two or more shot. Fig. 4, a centrallongitudinal sectional view of the same delivery cap being in its full open position for the delivery of a supply of shot as in filling the air rifle magazine. Fig. 5, an end view of the cap or delivery end of the same. Fig. 6, a'similar view of a slightly modified form. Fig. 7, alongitudinal sectional view of a further modified -form of delivery cap.
