DEAN MAGAZINE GUN
The breech-block of this gun is operated by a small lever, through the intervention of two links, the latter of which causes the recoil block to descend while the former forces the breech-block to the rear, when the lever is thrown to the front. The lock is of the usual outside pattern. Two magazines are provided, one in the butt and one in the tip-stock. The carrier, which is open at both ends to receive cartridges from either magazine, has a vertical motion at right angles to the axis of the piece. It is operated by the lever in the same general manner as the Winchester repeater. This gun carries ten cartridges in the tip-stock magazine, six in the butt-stock and one in the chamber.
