Specification of Letters Eatent.

Patented Jan. 4, 1910.

Application filed November 3, 1909. Serial No. 526,126.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WVILLIAM G. GREEN- WOOD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Prescott, in the county of Yavapai and Territory of Arizona, have invented new and useful Improvements in Revolver-Display Stands, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in display stands for revolvers, and the primary object of the invention is to provide a device of this character which is extremely simple in construction, which will support the revolver so as to effectively display the same and which can be constructed at a comparatively low cost.

lVith the above object in view and others which will appear as the description progresses, the invention resides in the novel construction of display stands for revolvers hereinafter fully described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawing there has been illustrated a-simple and preferred embodiment of the invention, and in which,

Figure l is a perspective view of the stand.

showing the same supporting a single revolver. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the stand, the revolver being removed. Fig. 3 is a similar view illustrating the stand supporting a pair of revolvers. Fig. 4 is a perspective view illustrating a slight modification of the device adapted to support a single revolver.

In the accompanying drawings the numeral l designates the improved supporting stand. This stand 1 is primarily constructed of a single strand of wire of a predetermined gage and flexibility and the said wire comprises essentially a body portion 2 which is provided by bending the central portion of the wire at a substantially right angle to provide arms 3. The said arms 3 are bent upwardly and substantially vertically as designated by the numerals a while the upper extremity of the numerals 4 are bent rearwardly and at a desired angle, the said extending portions being adapted .for the reception of suitable sleeves 5. The sleeves 5 are of a cross sectional diameter corresponding approximately with the bores of the revolving cylinder 6 of the revolver 7. By this arrangement. it will be noted that the said sleeves 5 may be positioned within two of the bores of the cylinder 6 to support a single revolver as illustrated in Fig. l or if desired the sleeves 5 may be positioned in only one of the bores of a .pair of revolvers as illustrated in Fig. 3.

In Fig. 4 there is illustrated a slightly modified form of the device. In this form the body 2' is provided with only one vertically extending arm 4 and the extremity of the said extension is bent at an angle and 'it is to be understood that while I have illustrated and described the preferred embodiment of the improvement, as it now appears to me, minor details of construction within the scope of the following claims may be resorted to if desired.

Having thus described the invention what I claim as new is 1. A pistol display stand constructed of a single strand of material, said material being bent upon itself to form a substantially V-shaped body portion, the ends provided by the body being bent upwardly and having their extremities extended rearwardly at an angle to and over the base.

2. A revolver display stand constructed of a single strand of material, said material being bent upon itself to form a substantially \I-shaped body portion, the ends provided by the body being bent upwardly and having their extremities extended rearwardly at an angle to and over the base, and said extremities being provided with sleeves substantially as and for the pur ose set forth.

In testimony whereof I a x my signature in presence of two witnesses.
