PUTNAM MAGAZINE GUN
This "straight pull" rifle, of original design, is loaded with a "clip" holding five cartridges, and when more fully developed will be certain to reach a high standard of excellence. In its present form the magazine is objectionable, because of its interference with easy and satisfactory manipulation. The magazine, placed in such a position through the breech as to present a similar appearance to that in the Winchester, is seriously in the way, and also detracts greatly from the symmetry and beauty of the gun.
