CHAFFEE-REESE MAGAZINE GUN

This arm, an improvement on the Chaffee magazine gun, belongs to that system of bolt-guns in which a fixed chamber is closed by a movable breech-bolt sliding and rotating. The magazine is in the butt-stock. The cartridges are held in the magazine by two ratchet-bars, one fixed and the other sliding, and operated when the bolt is turned back and closed. The magazine having been loaded, the bolt is thrown open and each tooth of the sliding-bar passes behind the head of the cartridge next in its rear. The closing of the bolt moves the ratchet forward, bringing each cartridge its own length further to the front. The cartridges are firmly held in position, so that they are not and cannot be in contact with each other, which is positive prevention from accidental explosions.

The frequent accidents and loss of life from premature explosions by magazine arms induced many gun mechanics, among the number Mr. Chaffee, to undertake to invent a magazine arm that should be free from that objection, and after several years of study and hard work, and a large outlay of money, he produced this arm, which upon a test trial, before a board of army officers, has demonstrated the fact that he has succeeded in doing it. This arm can be used as a single shooter until occasion requires the delivery of shots more frequently than would be possible if the arm had to be loaded after each discharge, when, by the turn of c button, seven extra charges will be available which can be delivered in four seconds or less.
