The Glenwood single barrel shotgun shown in the drawing has a top snap, is choke bored and is fitted with an automatic positive shell ejector. The only way to discharge the gun is to pull the trigger. The hammer cannot be made to strike the shell in any other way, and thus prevents accident. By means of a small thumb-screw, the barrel can be easily detached or put together without removing the fore-end. This gun has been highly recommended for field or trap shooting. Its mechanism is so simple that it seldom gets out of order and its safety features are quite meritorious. It is made in 12 and 16 gauge, with 30 or 32 inch barrel and weighs about 6 pounds.
