BROWN MAGAZINE GUN
This rapid-firing gun, weighs about eight pounds. It uses a "clip" which holds five cartridges, and is inserted in the grip of the gun immediately behind the trigger-guard. These five cartridges can be discharged in two seconds, as the gun need not be taken from the shoulder for throwing out the expended cartridge and putting another in its place. Throwing down the guard lever and returning it to place does all the work. The breech-block is solid, and moves down to allow removal of the discharged shell and reloading. An absolutely new feature of this gun is a level and quadrant attachment which allows it to be set at any desired angle, so that it can be used as a mortar.
