The full length of the gun, Figure 1, is 40 inches, weighs 7 pounds, and has an automatic cartridge extractor. As a cartridge rifle it is as handy and shoots as strong as those more expensive. It is equally as perfect as an air gun, and as such it has an accurate range of 60 feet, and will shoot a slug or shot with sufficient force to penetrate 2 inch pine. The gun has a steel barrel, rifled. All the parts are extra heavy and constructed of best material to stand continuous service. It is an excellent long range air gun for gallery or field.
The Safety cartridge rifle, Figure 2, has a full length of 33 inches and weighs 4^2 pounds. The caliber is .22 for regular "B B" short, long, and long rifle cartridges. It has a rebounding lock and quick twist. It has a rifled steel barrel, automatic cartridge extractor and adjustable rear sight; its stock is so fastened to the barrel that the two may be easily and quickly separated, making the arm handy to carry.
The Junior Safety rifle is about 4 pounds. The barrel, breech block, sights and operations of this rifle r re about the same as in the regular safety rifle, Figure 2. It has a Steel, nickel-plated skeleton stock and shoulder rest, which can be instantly detached for carrying in a small space. The form of the shoulder rest and the manner! in which it is attached to the frame makes a firm stock, and one that comes to true shoulder easily.
