SWORD-PISTOL.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 2, 1917.

Application filed April 7, 1917, Serial No. 160,430.

To all whom it mafl concern Be it known that I, ANTON RAMooKI, a subject of the Emperor of Austria, resldmg at North Tonawanda, in the county of Niagara and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sword-Pistols, of which the following 18 a specification.

The primary object of the inventlon 1s the provision of a sword istol of the magaz ne type adapted for rapid fire work, a readily accessible magazine for the cartridges being arranged while a safety mechanism is provided for the structure.

A still further object of the device is the provision of a magazine pistol or revolver which is perfect in its operation of successively shifting and exploding the cartridges, the cartridge magazine being readily shiftable for reloading while a safety catch prevents the operation of the pistol when desired.

A still further object of the invention is the provision of a sword pistol in which the sword blade or the pistol may be used separatel or together, the entire structure being zimple in its construction as well as possessin great strength and durability.

Tn the drawings forming a part of this application and in which like designating characters refer to corresponding parts throughout the several views Figure 1 is a side elevation of the device with the blade broken away and a portion of the hilt covering removed.

Fig. 2 is a top plan View thereof.

Fig. 3 is a front elevation thereof with the blade shown' in transverse section.

Fig. 4: is a view similar to Fig. 3 with the magazine open and with parts broken away.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged detail view of the lower portion of the pistol member.

Fig. 6 is a view partially in top elevation and partially in longitudinal section,

v .with the sword guard and the pistol firing mechanism removed and showing a cartridge arranged within the magazine.

Fig. 7 is a side ele tion similar to Fig. 1 with the magazine removed and parts broken away' Fig. 8 is a perspective view of the swingin mount for the cartridge magazine.

*ig. 9 is a perspective view of the automatic detent detached.

Fig. 10 is a perspective view of the safety catch for the trigger, and,

Fig. 11 is a perspective view of the latch bolt detached.

The present firearm broadly consists of a combined sword hilt and gun stock 10 having a curved hand guard 11 at the lower side thereof, a rectangular mounting frame 12 for a cartridge magazine 13 being forwardly attached with respect thereto'while a blade 14 forwardly projects from said frame in longitudinal alinement with the stock 10 in parallelism beneath a pistol barrel 15' carried by' the frame 12.

A hammer 16 is pivoted as at 17 within the slot 18 of the stock 10, the same having a firing point or pin 18 adapted to project inwardly of the frame 12 through a perforation 19 therein for the purpose of exploding a cartridge, such as 20, arranged Within the adjacent chamber 21 of the magazine 13. A loop 22 is provided within one of the openings 23 of the skeleton member 24 of the stock 10 through which a bent leaf spring 25 is positioned having one end thereof secured as at 26 to the member 24 while the opposite end of said spring engages within the rear notch 27 of the hammer 16.

The trigger 28 is pivoted as at 29 within a bottom slot 30 of the skeleton member 2A having a shoulder 31 adapted for the receps tion of a lug 32 upon the bottom of the hammer 16, as best illustrated in Fig. 7 of the drawings. A leaf spring 33 is secured at one end to the forward end 'of the loop 22 while the other end of the spring 23 is seated within a notch 34; of the trigger 28. From this arrangement it will be understood that with the members positioned as illustrated in .Fig. 7, an upward swinging movement imparted to the trigger 28 by the hand of the operator when grasping the stock 10 will retract the hammer 16 to its cocked position by reason of the engagement of the lug 32 of the hammer with the shoulder 31 of the trigger, such movement placing the springs 25 and 33 under tension. The continued upward movement of the trigger 28 after the hammer has assumed its elevated cocked po sition, trips the shoulder 31 off of the lug 32, the curved rear side 35 affording clearance for the said lug while the springs 25 and 33 return the trigger and hammer respectively, to their normal positions, thereby firin the through the frame opening 19 for engaging the cartridge 20.

A safety catch 36 is pivoted as at 3? to the rear lower corner of the frame 12, the same having its free forked end 38 engaged by a spring finger 39 at the lower forward corner of the frame 12 while the said catch is adapted to swing rearwardly through the bottom slot 40 in the hand guard 11 for engaging the heel ell of the catch 36 within a bottom notch 42 of the trigger 28 when the latter is in retracted or fixed position free from the hammer 1.6.

The magazine 13 iscylindrical in form having the chambers 21 thereof arranged in a circle adjacent its periphery while notches 43 are provided around the same at the rear edge thereof presenting successive parallel shoulders 44- adapted for restraining engage ment with a detent or stop 15 vertically shiftably mounted within a slot 46 in the top of the frame 12 and through an oblique slot 16 of the rear side 52 thereof and operatively connected by means of a linlc -17 with the trigger 28 as at 18. It will be understood that when the finger engaging portion of the trigger 28 is held inoperative by the safety catch 36, as illustrated by dotted lines in Fig. l of the drawings, such position takes place after the firing of the cartridge '20 which is positioned forwardly of the pin. 18 so that while the trigger 28 is in such safety position, it entirely releases the hammer 16 thereby rendering it capable of manual retraction by engaging the upper end 50 thereof. Any movement of the pin 18 incident thc rcto could only engage the exploded cartridge 20, as a succcmling car fridge is not brought into firing position until the catch 36 has been released and the trigger 28 again operated. The magazine 13 is adapted to be revolved for successively presenting the chambers 21 in aliuement between the firing pin 18 and the barrel 15, the mechanism consisting of a pusher or rod 4!).pivotcd as at 50130 the trigger QS'aud adapted to move through a substantially central slot 51 in the rear side of the frame 12 for engaging the circular arrangement of tooth centrally arranged upon the rear portion oflhc magazine The said side 52 is in the form of a tapered disk and forms a pommcl for the sword and to which the guard. 11 is secured as at 52, (be opposite end of the guard being attached as at 53 to the free end of the hilt ll). From this arrangement it will be seen that at lllc. time the trigger 28 is elevated, the dclcnt 45 is (lcprcsscd into engagement willl one of the shoulders 44 of the mega zinc. 13, thereby insuring the accurate position of one of the cartridges 2O for-firing ougag'mncut by the pin 18 while the pusher 49 operates simultaucously with the (latent 15 to revolve the magazine 13 for such seamen tor may grasp the same for using the blade 14. as well as fol-operating the trigger 28 in firing the pistol.

' The magazine 13 has a central hub 55 by means of which the magazine is revolubly journaled upon an axle 56 of the mount 57,

the latter being hinged to the lower front corner of the frame 12 at 58. A latch bolt 59 is longitudinally slidably positioned within a chamber 60 in the rear end of the blade- 14, a cover plate 61 being provided for the said chamber whilea projecting spring- (3:2 is arranged for projecting the bolt 59 rcarwardly within the said chamber (30. A. pin 63 is carried by the bolt 59pmjccting through a side slot (3% in the cover plate (31 whereby the bolt may be retracted when desired, it being noted that a keeper slot 65 is laterally arrangedthrough the blade 11 adjacent the forward side 66 of the frame 12 adapted to receive the arm 67 of the mount 57 and position a notch 68-of the said arm within the locking path of movement of the bolt59.

The bolt 59 normally engagesthe arm. (3? for retaining the magazine 13 in its closed operative position while upon retracting the" bolt 59 by means of the pin 63, the arm 67 IS released, permitting the mount 57 and magazine 13 to be swung laterally upon the hinge 58 to its open position, as illustrated in Fig. 4 of the drawing, for permitting the exploded shells to be readily withdrawn from the chambers 21 and the reloading of the chambers.

The mount 57 and magazine are readily closed by swmgmg the same 111- wardly of the frame 12, the forward in-'--' clined face 69 of the arm 67 retracting the bolt 59 for allowin the latter to automatically seat within tie notch 68. it will be understood that when the safety catch 36 is in engagement with the trigger 28, the pusher 4-9 will prevent the opening of the magazine 13 by restraining the lateral swinging movement thereof. A take-up spring 70 is arranged-upon the bottom 71 of the frame 12 for frictionally engaging the periphery of the magazine 13 taking up any lost motion which may be present therein,-

the normal positioning of the magazine serving to slightly tension the said spring 70. A serviceable pistol sword is arranged which may be readily operated for firing as a pistol as well as for use as a sword, the operation of the hammer and trigger mechanism being, simple in construction and positive in operation in connection with the accurately positioned cartridge magazine simultaneously automatically operated thereby.
