STETSON MAGAZINE GUN
This rifle has a fixed chamber, closed by a movable breech-block, which slides in the line of the barrel by indirect action, being moved by levers from below. The arm resembles, externally, in its operation, and in many of its features, the Winchester. It is locked in the act of closing the lever-guard, by a projection on the bolt being thrown upward in front of a shoulder in the upper portion of the frame. The empty shells are ejected through the same lateral opening by which the magazines charged. It is provided with a cut-off for the magazine.
