The fiangesp '0 fit closely over one end lno.
(Z0 its ends.
the insidev of the guard h, and the stock a over the other end to hold said guard firmly in position. The parts are assembled as shown most 'distinctlyoin Figure 10. The carrier '9 is made of sheet metaland has the lugs 9 g, turned up from the metal of the carrier itself, and properly shaped parts g, 9
' and g, g, are turned over from said metal to'form braces for said lugs. i
The operation of the above described device is as follows: 1 v
The-operator grasps the handle f and 'draws backward thereon, compressing the spring 6 untilthe coils thereof are in contact'with each other.
A further backward movementof the handle f forces the rod d V backward until the portions d of the rod (1 engages over-thehook b on the trigger When the rod "(Z is thus drawn backward it draws the piston cl against the pressureof I the spring 6 and the loop f "of the rod, or
in Figure 3.
.wire, f engages the cork k and presses said back to its initial position because of the pressure of the spring 6 as shown in Figure 4. Now, if the trigger b is drawn upon,
the rod d will be released and driven forward by the spring 6, compressingthe air between itand the cork k and ultimately dis placing the cork allowing the air compressed in front of the piston d to escape with a report like that 'of a-gun. I
The cork is retained by the cage like-structure of the barrel enlargement c and is ready'to' be again engaged in position, as-
shown in Figures scribed.- a What I claim is:- r o 3 and 4c and above de- 1. In combination with a toy gun, having a barrel, the outer end of which is formed to receive a cork and allow the same to freely reciprocate therein, a cork in the outer end of said gun, a resetting handle adapted to slide longitudinally of the barrel beneath and at the rear portion of the same, a rod extending forward from said handle and adapted to loosely engage said cork to force the same into engagement in the barrel when the handle is retracted, said rod being free to move away from saidcork in the other direction. r i
2. In a toy gun, a barrel, a piston adapted to reciprocate therein, a spring acting to throwsaid piston outward, a handle'adapt ed to reciprocate inthe direction' of themotion of said piston and toretractsaid piston,
said handle having a limited motion" indendentof said piston, anda second spring lnterposed between said handle and said piston acting to restore s'aidhandle to its 0 thereof, as shown initial position when said vlimited motion i and reciprocate in the barrel of said gun,
a rod secured to said piston, a sprirIg-surrounding said rod adapted to throw said piston outward, a resetting handle adapted to reciprocate on said rod, a second spring a weaker than the first named spring interposed between said handle and said rod and acting upon said rod in the opposite direction to the first named spring and upon said handle to restore it. to itsfirst position.
4. In a toy gun, a piston adapted to fit and reciprocate in thebarrel of. said gun,
a rod secured to said piston, a spring'adapted to'throw said pistonoutward, a second spring surrounding said rod 'weaker' than the first named spring acting upon said rod in the opposite directionto the first named:
'1 a he spring, a resetting handle adapted to re'ciprocate on said rod between said springs, a cork, means for limiting the motion of said cork, and guide the same to a position closing said barrel in front of said piston, means connected with said handle adapted to loosely engage said cork and force it to its closing position insaid barrel when said handle is retracted but to permit free rel.- ative motion in the other direction.
5. In atoy gun, a piston adapted to fit and reciprocate in the barrel of said gun,;a 1 rod secured to said piston, a spring surrounding said rod adapted to throw said" piston outward, a second spring surrounding said.
rod weaker than the first named spring interposed between said handle and ,saidgrod V and acting upon said rod in the opposite direction to the first named spring,-a reset ting handle adapted to reciprocate on said rod'between said springs,cmea ns for limiting the motion of saidcork-and adapted to guide the same to a position" closing said barrel in front of said piston, a rod fixed to said handle and extending to a point beyond said cork in position to engage said cork and force the same to its closing position when said handle is retracted.
6. In an apparatus of the kind described,
the combination with a stock,- barrel and cas-' ing connecting the same, a trigger guard having one end extending through saidcasto form straps bowed in opposite directions and fitting into said. groove to secure the carrier and handle together. o v
-8. The combinationof a handle,fa groove in said handle, a carrier for said handle made of sheetv metal, said metal being cut to form straps bowed in opposite directionsand fitting into said groove'to secure the,
carrier and handle together, said groove being extended in an apperture, said metal being provided with a portion extending into said aperture and engaging therein.
9. The combination of a handle, a groove in said handle, a carrier for said handle made of sheet metal, said metal being cut to form straps bowed in opposite directions and fitting into said groove to secure the carrier and handle together, said groove being extended in an aperture passing through said handle, said metal being provided with a portion extending through said aperture and having its protruding end bent over to" engage said handle; I V Y 10. The combination in a toy gun having a stock and a barrel, a reloading apparatus located at theouter end of said barrel, a resetting handle adapted to reciprocate longitudinally of said barrel at the rear portion of the same, and means connected with said handle so as to move therewith, said means extending to said reloading means and forming the actuating part of the same.
11. In a toygun, a barrel, a piston adapted to reciprocate therein, a spring acting to throwsaid piston outward, a resetting handle adapted to reciprocate in the direction of the motion of said piston, said handle having a limited motion independent of sad piston, and a spring acting to restore said handle to its normal position when said limited motion has been taken up and the handle released. i
In testimony whereof, I sign thisspecification.
