ATTACHMENT FOR GUN SLINGS.

APPLICATION FILED JUNEZ, 1919.

ATTACHMENT FOR GUN-SLINGS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 8, 1921.

Application filed June 2, 1919. Serial no. sorter To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, BENJAMIN HENRY GRIERsoN, a citizen of the United States of America, residing in Fort Davis, in the county of Jeff Davis and the State of Texas, have invented a new and useful Attachment for Gun-Slings, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to attachments for gun-slings for use on army rifles or other guns; and has for its object to provide means whereby an arm-loop formed on the gunsling and passing around the muscle of the upper arm may be held tight thereon and prevented from slipping up or down. In this way the gun-sling may be held tight against the armduring aiming, and steady aim thereby facilitated.

Other objects will appear as the nature of the invention is disclosed; and while herein I describe minute details of the attachment,

' the invention is not limited to these, since many and various changes may be made in structure and arrangement without departing from the scope of the invention as claimed.

In the accompanying drawing, showing by way of example, one of many possible embodiments of my invention,

Figure 1 is a perspective view showing my attachment applied to a gun-sling and in use;

- Fig. 2 is a fragmental perspective view, on

a larger scale, showing a gun-sling arm-loop with the attachment applied thereto;

upper arm of the rifleman as shown Fig. 3 is a side elevation of the gun-sling with attachment applied;

Fig. 4 is a bottom View of the same; and

Figs. 5, 6 and 7 are respectively side elevation, bottom view and rear end elevation of the attachment.

The attachment is shown applied to a -upon itself to form at its rear end an armloop 15 adapted to receive the muscle of the in Fig. 1. A hook 16 is riveted to one end of the loop-strap and provided with hook points 1 7 adapted to engage in Said perforations 11.

As stated, said loop-strap is folded upon itself, thereby superposing two thicknesses of the strap on which are disposed the forward and rear slides or runner loops 20 and 21 near said arm loop and barrel swivel respectively, for holding said thicknesses thus superposed.

A metallic link 22 is received on the rear part of the arm loop, and is in turn received by a loop 23 formed on the forward end of the butt-strap 25. The rear portion of the butt-strap is passed through said butt swivel? and is provided on its free end with a hook 26 riveted thereto and provided with hook points engaging in the perforations 27 of the butt-strap. I

The arm-loop holding attachment 30 is shown in Figs. 5, 6 and 7 and consists of a single piece of wire or rod formed into a frame receiving therein both of the endmembers 32 and 33 of the arm-loop, between said loop and the rear runner loop 20. The

attachment 30 comprises a yoke portion34- engaging the exposed face of the inner end member 32. At the ends of the yoke portion are the side portions 35 engaging both edges of both members 32 and 33 and having their free ends bent inwardly to form inwardly bent portions 36 engaging the outer face ofthe outer member 33. Joined to said in: wardly bent portions are the rearwardly bent spaced parallel portions 38 spaced apart sufficiently for the attachment to be easily slipped onto and from the superposed end-members 32 and 33, said members passing between the spaced portions 38.

The free ends of said spaced ortion 38 are bent inwardly and forward y to form hooks40 engaging in the perforations 11 to prevent the slipping of said attachment forwardly toward the runner loop 20, thereby preventing the enlarging of the arm-loop, and holding the latter tight on the arm.

In use the attachment and the gun-sling are adjusted as shown in Fig. -1. The attachment may be slipped on before or after thearm has been passed into the arm-loop. It is easily slipped into place over the superposed end-members 32 and 33, the latter passing through the space between the spaced portions 38. After the loop has been properly placed on the arm, the attachment is drawn down until the loop is tight on the arm, and the hooked ends 40 are then hooked into the perforations 11, thereby cf 'fectively preventing the slipping up of the -manner reverse to the way in which-it is slipped on.

Other constructions and uses than those shown, but fully within the scope of the J 7 claims, will readily suggest themselves.

I claim as my invention:

, 1.. A gun-sling arm-loop attachment comprising a frame adapted without bendlng to he slipped laterally onto and from two thicknesses of a leather arm-loop, and provided with holding means for positively preventing the slipping of the attachment along the arm-loop while the arm-loop is under ten- 2, A gun-sling arm-loop attachment comprising'a' frame adapted to be slipped laterally onto two thicknesses'of a thick leather arm-loop, Uwithout springing or distorting the frame or bending the leather, said frame being provided with holding means for positively preveiiting the slipping of the attachment alongthe ,arm-loop while the arm-loop is under tension.

3. A gun-sling arm-loop attachment comprisinga discontinuous frame adapted, without springing or distortion, to be slipped laterally ontoand from two thicknesses of a thick leather arm-loop, and provided with holding means adapted to pass entirely through the leather arm-loop forpositively preventing the slipping of the" attachment along the arm-loop while the arm-loop is under tension.

4. Ajgun-sling arm-loop attachment com- ,prising ai frame adapted to receive two "to pass entirely through the thick leat thicknesses of a thick leather arm-loop and comprising spaced portions spaced apart sufficiently to permit said two thicknesses to pass there between without distortingor, bending the frame',-said spaced portions being'provided with hooked ends adapted to engage in perforations in the arm-loop and er of I the arm-loop.

" 5. A gun-sling arm-loop attachment comprising a frame adapted to receive two thick; nesses of a thick leather arm-loop and consistin of a yoke portion, side portions joine to the yoke portion,-inwardly turned portions joined to the side portions, and
