KENNETH E. GOLDEN BUCKHORN, BLORE, KLARQUIST & SPARKMAN ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,218,745 PHGTOGRAPHTC TOY GUN Kenneth E. Golden, Portland, Oreg., assignor to Sawyers Inc., Progress, 0reg., a corporation of Oregon Filed Nov. 30, 1962, Ser. No. 241,266 9 Claims. (CI. 4082) This invention relates to a photographic toy gun and more particularly to a toy gun having a transparency viewer thereon.

An object of the invention is to provide a photographic viewer gun which sequentiallypresents a first image of a target with crosshairs superimposed thereon and then an image of the target after being apparently shot.

Another object of the invention is to provide a toy gun having a changeable picture display device and simulating a telescopic gunsight mounted on the rear portion of the barrel.

A further object of the invention is to provide a photographic viewer gun wherein a strip film is moved step-bystep past an aperture to sequentially present to the aperture an image of a target object and an image of the object after a shot is simulated.

Another object of the invention is to provide a toy gun with a changable picture display viewer, together with a trigger mechanism for changing the pictures to be viewed.

The invention provides a toy gun which has a barrel portion with a picture display device mounted on the upper rear portion of the barrel portion to simulate a telescopic gunsight and a plurality of pictures are provided, together with a trigger mechanism for sequentially locating the pictures in the viewing position. The plurality of pictures may take the form of an endless film strip provided with perforations spaced therealong and an intermittent pawl feed may be provided for sequentially advancing the film strip step-by-step past an aperture plate, together with a trigger mechanism of the gun having actuating means for the intermittent strip advancing means.

A complete understanding of the invention may be obtained from the following detailed description of a photographic toy gun forming a specific embodiment thereof, when read in conjunction with the appended drawing, in which:

FIG. 1 is a side elevation of a photographic toy gun forming one embodiment of the invention;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged vertical section taken along line 22 of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a partial side elevation of a portion of the other side of the gun of FIG. 1;

FIGS. 4, 4a, 4b and 4c are enlarged vertical sections taken along line 44 of FIG. 2 and showing a film-feeding mechanism in different positions during a cycle of operations;

FIG. 5 is a side elevation of one housing section of the gun of FIG. 1 showing the interior of such section;

FIG. 6 is a side elevation of the other housing section of the gun of FIG. 1 showing the interior of such section;

FIG. 7 is an enlarged, partially sectional, side elevation of the housing section of FIG. 5 showing operating parts of the gun mounted therein;

FIG. 8 is a fragmentary view similar to FIG. 7 but with parts thereof in different positions;

FIGS. 9, 9a and 9b are elevational views on a further enlarged scale showing a portion of the mechanism shown in FIGS. 7 and 8;

FIG. 10 is an enlarged, fragmentary, front elevation of a film strip constructed in accordance with the invention; and

FIG. 11 is an enlarged, vertical section similar to FIG. 4b and including a framing mechanism.

0 forations 23 formed therein Referring now in detail to the drawings, there is shown therein a photographic toy gun 10 (FIG. 1) having a barrel 11, a viewer 12 positioned on the rear end of the barrel and simulating a telescopic gunsight, a simulated magazine portion 13, a handle 14 and a movable trigger 15. The gun also has a front sight 16 on housing sections 17 and 18 which are preferably composed of injection molded plastic material and are secured together by fusing spots thereof together to form the gun housing The gun is provided with a cocking bolt handle 19 (FIG. 3) and a trigger mechanism 20, both capable of moving an actuating arm 21 (FIG. 7) to actuate a pawl 22 to advance an endless film strip 23 to and past viewing apertures 23d (FIG. 2) in an aperture plate member 24 for viewing by an eyepiece or magnifier 25 (FIG. 7) against light, illumination being provided from a translucent, ground glass, light-dispersing member 27. The eyepiece 25 has a magnifying lens 26 therein.

The trigger mechanism 20 is analogous to the so-called single-action trigger mechanism well known in the gun and toy gun arts, and the bolt handle 19 and device associated therewith, to be described below, must be actuated after each actuation of the trigger 15 in order to permit the trigger mechanism 20 to be actuated again by the trigger 15. The film strip 23 carries a number of frames or transparencies illustrated by frames 23a, 23b and 230 (FIG. 10), and has pairs of the frames arranged in adjacent positions as illustrated by frames 23a and 23b in which an image of a target object or wild animal, such as, for example, a snake 31, is shown in a position ready to attack with an image or picture of a crosshairs 32 simulating the crosshairs of a gunsight superimposed on the animal and the picture of the succeeding frame which is presented upon actuation of the trigger mechanism shows the animal 31 after being theoretically struck by a bullet from the gun. The viewer 12 may be, of course, provided with an actual reticle which is superimposed on each picture being shown if it is so desired, but the effect of the reticle on the animal just before shooting thereof with the gun is simulated and with no reticle in the picture presented after the so-called shot gives a realistic effect.

The lens holder 25 is composed of plastic material and is fused to the housing sections 17 and 18 by positioning a solvent therebetween which fuses the lens holder to the housing in a position in which the forward end of the lens holder projects a substantial distance into the housing portion of the viewer 12, and the film strip is twisted slightly in its return path from the aperture plate member 24 with one edge 23d (FIG. 7) trapped under the forward end of the lens holder 25 and a second edge 23a bearing against a pin 18! formed on the housing section 18. This keeps the portion of the film in the return path out of the light path from the aperture to the lens. The film then travels down into a loop in the hollow handle portion of the gun.

The feed of the film strip is effected by the pawl 22 which is mounted for vertical sliding movement in the molded plastic aperture plate member 24. The aperture plate member 24 is held between stops 17a, 18a, 17b and 18b molded on the housing sections 17 and 18. The pawl s provided with a pivot pin 22a (FIG. 4) which projects into a slot or guideway 24b and the pawl projects through a pawl-guiding slot 24a. The pin 22a and the slots 24a and 24b mount the pawl 22 for vertical sliding movement and also for pivotal movement about the pin 22a. A tension spring 68 secured to an arm 22b at one end and to a pm (FIG. 7) at the other end biases a claw or film strip engaging pawl portion 220 (FIGS. 4 to 40) toward engagement with the film strip 23 which has standard per- The actuator arm 21 has a bearing portion 21a pivoted on pin 18y of the section 18. When the actuator arm 21 is pivoted from the position thereof shown in FIG. 7, an end portion 21b thereof engages a cam surface 22g on an arm 222 of the pawl 22 and moves the pawl first in a pivotal, counterclockwise direction to retract the claw 220 from the film strip to a position thereof shown in FIG. 4a by the portion 21b riding along the cam surface 22g of the arm 222. Then the surface 21b engages projection 22j and pulls the pawl 22 downwardly relative to the film 23. During the lower end portion of the movement of the arm 21, as illustrated in FIG. 4b, a cam portion 2411 of the aperture plate member 24 pushes the pin 22ato the right to swing the pawl 22 clockwise to move the pawl portion 22c into one of the perforations 23 Continued movement of the arm 21 causes the cam portion 2411 to move the pawl 22 slightly counterclockwise to the position thereof shown in FIG. 40. This is aided by the end portion 21b moving along the upper surface of the projection 22j to trigger the pawl 22. During the trigger action, the pawl 22 is rapidly pivoted and the projecting portion 22 snaps out from under the arm 21, a relieved portion 221', providing clearance. The arm 21 continues to move downwardly while the spring 68 snaps the pawl 22 upwardly to pull the film strip 23 upwardly to present the next frame to the aperture, a cam portion 24m guiding the pin 22:: into the guideway 24b. The upward movement of the pawl is limited by a stop portion 241'. The drive of the pawl 22 by the arm 21 may be eifected continuously by the bolt handle member 19 or may be effected alternately by the bolt handle 19 and the trigger 15.

The aperture plate member 24 is composed of molded plastic material and has the slots 24a and 24b provided therein and also has aligned apertures illustrated by the aperture 24d in plate-like portions 242 and 24 as illustrated in FIGS. 2 and 4. A guide passage 24g is formed between the plate-like portions 24e and 24 The aperture plate member 24- also has a guide slot 24 therein for the claw 22c, and is provided with ribs 2471 for strength.

The finger member or trigger (FIGS. 7 to 9a) is composed of molded plastic material, has a journal portion 15a along with a curved arm 15b having a rounded end portion 15c, and is mounted pivotally on pin 18k of housing section 18. The pin 18k fits into sleeve portion 17k in housing section 17. Spring 51) urges the trigger 15 toward its retracted position. An actuator plate 51 is pivotally mounted on and is carried by the arm 21, the plate 51 being pivotally mounted on a pin 51m extending through and riveted over the end of a bearing opening 21 formed on the arm 21. The plate 51 is urged upwardly and to either an overcenter position in which a pin 51a engages the arm 21 or a second overcenter position in which a pin 51!; engages the arm 21 by a spring 52 secured at its upper end to a lateral projection 18L When the bolt handle 19 is slid from its normal position, back to the left as viewed in FIG. 3, a pin 56a (FIGS. and 7) carried by a slide 56 to which the handle 19 is secured, is slid along a slot 13m, the slide 56 being slid along a guideway 18n paralleling the slot 18m. The pin 56a initially engages the upper edge of the arm 21 to swing the free end of the arm 21 downwardly, then engages edge c of plate 51 and pivots the plate 51 in a clockwise direction as viewed in FIG. 7 until the pin 51a engages the arm 21 and then rides along the edge 51c to push the arm 21 further downwardly to actuate the pawl through its retraction and feed strokes as described above. When the plate 51 is so pressed by the pin 56a, it swings the spring 52 to an overcenter position relative to the pivot pin 21 so that the spring 52 tends to maintain the plate 51 in the position shown in FIG. 7 relative to the arm 21.

During the movement of the bolt handle 19 to the right, the pin 56a engages a head 61a on a noise-making or clapper rod 61 and moves the head 61a of the rod over a latch arm 62. The latch arms 62 is urged counterclockwise as viewed in FIG. 7, by a torsion spring 63 bearing against the arm 62 at one end and against portion 180 of the housing section 18. After the bolt handle 19 and the slide 56 are so moved to, in eifect, cock the trigger mechanism 20 and also cause the advance of the film strip 23 a distance of one frame through the aperture plate member 24, the bolt handle 19 is related and is returned to the left, as viewed in FIG. 7, by a spring 64, a clearance slot 61b being provided for the pin 56a. The trigger member 15 then can be actuated manually to release the trigger mechanism and cause the film strip 23 to be advanced a distance of one frame through the aperture plate member 24 and also release the clapper rod 61 for impingement on the plate 18p formed on the housing section 18 to make a noise like a shot from a gun. The lefthand end of the clapper rod 61 is journaled in notched webs 17g and 18:1 in the housing sections 17 and 18. A compression spring 67 bears against a collar portion 61d of the rod 61 to give it its striking force. The other end of the spring 67 bears against plate members 171' and 18r. The housing sections 17 and 18 are formed with trigger guard portions 17s and 18s molded integrally therewith. The housing section 17 has aligning and securing pins 17a (FIG. 6) which fit into hollow boss portions 1811 (FIG. 7), and the pins 1711 are coated with a solvent during assembly of the two housing sections to adhere the sections together.

While the trigger mechanism 20 is being actuated by the trigger member 15, assuming the plate 51 to be in its cocked position as shown in FIG. 9a, laterally extending pin 15d integral with the end 15c of the trigger travels up over upper corner 51d of cam ledge 51c and swings the plate 51 in a counterclockwise direction to bring the pin 51!) into engagement with the lever 21 (FIG. 8). Then on movement of the trigger 15, the pin 15d on the curved end portion 15c of the arm 15b presses the plate 51 downwardly in a film strip feeding stroke, and the end portion 15c engages a ledge 62a of the latching arm 62 and presses the ledge 62a downwardly to move the lever 62 out of engagement with the clapper rod 61. This causes the clapper rod to strike the plate 18p to make a bang. Also, the arm 21 is moved downwardly by the pressure of the trigger member 15 pressing downwardly against the cam ledge 51c, and the downward movement of the arm 21 moves the pawl 22 downwardly in a retraction stroke and then releases the pawl 22 for a feed stroke. The film strip then is advanced one frame through the aperture plate member 24. The trigger member 15 then is released and the spring 52 raises the plate 51 and the arm 21 to their retracted positions and swings the trigger member 15 back to its normal position. However, at this time the plate 51 is held by the spring 52 in the overcenter position in which the pin 51b engages the arm 21, and in this position of the plate 51, the ledge 512 is above the path of the trigger member 15 so that the trigger member cannot actuate the trigger mechanism until it is again cocked by the bolt handle 19 and associated elements.

While the trigger mechanism 20 is single-action, obviously a double-action trigger mechanism may be substituted therefor, with or without the bolt mechanism for cocking the trigger and advancing the film. With the double-action trigger mechanism, the film strip may be fed by the trigger as often as desired without any cocking of the trigger mechanism by the bolt mechanism.

As illustrated in FIG. 10, the film 23 has three equally spaced performations 23] per frame and, to initially frame the transparencies or frames 2311-230 correctly, a framing mechanism 89 (FIGS. '3, 4b and 11) is provided. The framing mechanism when set by the user, modifies the feeding action of the trigger mechanism to feed the film strip only one-third of a frame instead of its normal feed of a full frame. The framing mechanism includes a finger plate 82 accessible at the outside of the housing section 18 and slidable parallel to a slot 18x with connecting webs 84 slidable in the slot 18x and connecting the finger plate 82 to a triggering plate 86 composed of tough, resilient plastic material inside the housing. The plate 86 may be moved manually between a retracted position shown in FIG. 4b and an operative or feed-strokemodifying position shown in FIG. 1'1. When the plate 86 is in its retracted position, a pin 86a is completely out of the path of the arm 22e of the pawl 22. However, when the plate 86 is in its operative position, the pin 86a is in the path of relieved or wedging portion 221' of the pawl 22 during the retracting stroke and cams the pawl 22 in a counterclockwise direction to move the projection 22j out from under the actuator arm 21 to release the pawl 22 at a point at which only one-third of a frame of the film strip is fed upwardly by the pawl. During this premature or framing triggering of the pawl, a pin 21h of the arm 21 presses against a wedge or cam surface 86b to push the plate 86 with the pin 86a to the right to accelerate the triggering action, and then, after the triggering occurs, moves the plate 86 back to its retracted position by follow-through movement of the arm 21. A spring arm 860 is adapted to wedge under stop 18a to frictionally hold the plate 86 in its operative position after the plate 86 is moved to that position, and also resiliently retains the plate 86 in its retracted position after the plate 86 is moved to its retracted position. The slot 18x and web 84 (FIG. 3) limit movement of the retracting direction and a reinforcing rib 182 limits movement of the plate 86 to the left, as viewed in FIG. 11.

It is to be understood that the above-described arrangements are simply illustrative of the application of the principles of the invention.
