This magazine arm embodies the joint inventions of Major W. R. Livermore and Captain A. H. Russell, United States Army, in improvements in magazines and breech movements. The barrel and breech-bolt are the same as on the LeeSpeed, and the arm is adapted to that cartridge. The receiver in all essential features is also the same. The gun has a cut-off identical with that of the LeeSpeed and uses the Kussell metallic feed case. This case is constructed of a single piece of bent sheet metal, which will contain just enough cartridges to fill the magazine of this gun, from which the magazine can be recharged as rapidly as a single cartridge could be placed in the receiver. These feed cases are little if any more costly that paper boxes, and are to be thrown away when empty.
