This invention relates to ñrearms, and par
provided with a vertical passage 20 through which
ticularly to firearms equipped with sling-straps.
extends a screw 2| having its threaded upper end
Heretofore, in using firearms equipped with
threaded into a cylindrically-contoured nut 22
which, like the nut I8 before described. is pro
vided with a serrated periphery and is seated
sling-straps, it has been customary for marks
men to press forwardly with the hand which is
used to support the forward end of the firearm,
with the result that this hand has become
jammed or pinched in the forward end of the
acute-angled space between the underside of the
forestock'and the sling-strap, to the extreme dis
comfort of the marksmen.
One of the objects of the present invention
is to provide a firearm of superior construction
and arrangement, whereby the discomfort above
referred to is minimized.
A further object is to provide a superior fire
arm having a hand-abutment adjustably secured
to the forestock or equivalent parts in such man
ner that a comfortable rest for the marksman’s
hand is provided.
With the above and other objects in view, as
will appear to those skilled in the art from the
following, considered in conjunction with the
accompanying drawing and appended claims, the
2
present invention includes all features disclosed
therein which are novel over the prior art.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view showinga firearm
embodying the present invention in use;
Fig. 2 is a broken view, partly in side eleva
tion and partly in longitudinal section;
Fig. 3 is a broken under-side view thereof;
Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the hand-abut
ment viewed mainly from its under-face;
3
Fig. 5 is a similar view, but viewed mainly from
its upper face; and ,
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the unit com
with a force-lit in a pocket 23 formed in the
upper face of the forestock II.
Intermediate its respective opposite ends the
anchor-plate I4 is formed with a longitudinal
series of six (more or less) threaded bores 24, 10
any one of which is adapted to receive the
threaded upper end of an anchoring-screw 25
which passes upwardly through a ring-like shoul
dered bow-base 2S and also through substan
tially the central portion of a hand-abutmentblock or member 21 positioned against the un
der side of the forestock II and its anchor
plate I4.
The bow-base 26 above referred to is dia
metrically pierced for the reception of the re 20
spective inturned opposite ends of a strap-guid
ing bow or loop 28 which is thus pivoted for
swinging movement to the said bow-base and
through which the upper reach of a sling-strap 29
is adapted to pass, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2. At 25
its forward end. the sling-strap 29 is looped
through a strap-attaching bow or loop 30, which
latter has its respective opposite inturned ends
projecting into suitable bores in the head I'I
of the screw I6“ for pivotal movement with 30
respect thereto.
The upper face 3| of the hand-abutment block
21 is transversely concaved to substantially con
form to the under surface of the forestock Il
and has upstanding from it, adjacent its forward ' 35
end, a lug or dowel 32 which is designed to enter
the particular one of the bores 24 located next
adjacent forwardly of the particular bore into
which the anchoring-screw 25 extends. The said
lug 32 acts in conjunction with the anchoring 40
tration includes a usual barrel I0, having a fore
stock I I mounted against its under side. The said screw 25 to effectively prevent any turning move
forestock may be distinct from or may be ment of the said hand-abutment block.
The hand-abutment block above referred to
formed in one piece with a buttstock I2.
In its under side and adjacent its forward may be conveniently formed of a suitable hard
wood or of various compositions, such, for in 45
end, the forestock II is formed with a relatively
shallow longitudinal recess I3 receiving an an
stance, as Bakelite, lhard rubber, urea formalde
hyde, etc., and is preferably shaped at its rear
chor-plate I4, the outer surface of which is ar
ranged flush with the under face of the said fore- ' end to provide a downwardly-extending trans
stock II. Immediately adjacent its forward end verse lip 33 which is partially intersected about
midway of its width by a cylindrical recess 34 50
the anchor-plate I4 is provided with a verti
cal passage I 5 through which passes the threaded formed coaxially with the passage 35 in the block
shank I6 of a screw generally designated by the through which the anchoring-screw 25 extends
and designed for the reception of the bow-base
reference character I6a which screw also in
cludes a relatively-long head I 'I. 'I'he threaded 26, as clearly shown in Fig. 2.

Bydeñecting the sling-strap 29 out of the way,
unit including strap-receiving - means
the anchoring-screw 25 may be unthreaded from ' ment
through which a sling-strap may be passed with
the particular one of the _threaded bores 24 in
which it is located and .the entire hand-abutment
block shifted .as may be desired to accommodate
the arm length of a particular marksman by the
positioning of the said block with its lug 32 in an
appropriate one of the bores 24 and re-threading
the anchoring-screw _25 into the' next adjacent
10 bore 24 to the rear of the particular one in which
the lug 32 is installed. In the particular arrange
ment of parts shown when _the hand-abutment
block 21 is shifted, the strap-guiding bow >28 will
serve to hold'the upper reach of the sling-strap
29 against deilection too far away from the under
freedom for sliding movement.
