The bearing 59, cam 69 and disk 5I are all rotat Cl

and slide are shown in this position in Fig. 19. In
Fig. 20, however, the slide 89 and hook members
are shown in a lowered position. As the hook
members 88 and 89 are moved upwardly and
downwardly, they are guided away from and

general, this position of the casing 58 corresponds
to a horizontal position of the gun II, although
the low portion 15 of the cam may be positioned
to bias the casing 58 and the gun into any posi
tion.
Mounted within the casing 59 as by screws 11
and 19 is a frame member 19. Fitted within the
frame member 19 is a slide 89 having projecting
portions 81' and S2 at each end thereof. The low
er projecting portion 82 is received in an open
ing in the frame member 19, and the upper pro
jecting portion 3I projects through an opening in
the top 83 of the casing. In addition to guid
ing the movement of the slide 89, this latter pro
jecting portion 3i has another function to be
hereinafter described. A pair of axles 84 and
85 also extends from the slide 89. As shown in
Fig. 9, each of these axles is provided with a re
duced portion 85 and 81 at said free ends. As
shown in Fig. 16, each of these reduced portions
carries a hook member. These hook members are
indicated by the reference numerals 88 and 89.
Each of these hook members includes hub por
tions 99 and 9t, angularly extending portions 92
and 99, vertically extending portions 94 and 95,
ly by a cam II2 which is positioned within a re
cess II 3 of the slide. (Figs. 19 and 20). As best
shown in Fig. 8, the cam H2 is integral with a
shaft I It, a cylindrical portion I I5 and a handle
member H6. Also extending from the cam II2
is a bifurcated portion II ‘I provided with openings
H8 and H9 adapted to receive a pin I20 slidably
mounted in a slot IZI in the member I 22. The
member I22 projects from a disk I23 which is
mounted between the frame member 19 and the
casing 58, as shown in Figs. 19 and 20. A spring
I24 is also» provided which bears against the frame
19 and the slide 89. The pin I29 also extends
thru the convolutions of the spring I24 so that
the spring tends to move the bifurcated portion
II1, the cam H2 and the handle to the right, as
shown in Figs. 19 and 20. A cotter pin i29a holds
the disk I29 in place. A bayonet slot I25 in the
casing 58, best shown in Fig. 17, cooperates with
the shaft H9 and the cylindrical portion II5.
In Fig. 20, the cylindrical portion I I5 is within the
large portion of the bayonet slot I25, while in
Fig. 19 the cylindrical portion II 5 has been moved
clear of the casing 58 and the shaft H4 is po
sitioned in the narrow portion of the bayonet
slot I 25. It may be noted that the cylindrical
and horizontally extending portions 95 and 91

movement of the handle will move the slide 89

d
upwardly thru the cooperation of the cam H2
and the edges of the opening H3. This move
ment of the slide 81‘! will move the hooks 8S and
S3 upwardly, and the upper ends of the hooks
outwardly to the position of Fig. 15. Conversely,
movement of the handle IIS downwardly will
move the slide 38 and the hooks downwardly and
inwardly to grasp the trigger guard 93. As shown
in Figs. 18 and 9 the opening i 53 is provided with
a stop member I26 which limits the rotational
movement of the handle H5, the shaft H4 and
the cam I I2. It is desired to point out also that
the cam I I2 and sides of the opening H3 are ec
centric relative to one another, and rotation of
the shaft I'i?. in a clockwise direction by the han
dle H6 will, therefore, move the slide 86 down
wardly. This provision enables the hook mem
bers 8S and 89 to be given a slight downward
movement after the initial downwardvmovement
just previously described, so that all play may be
removed and wear of the hook members and other
parts may be compensated for. The handle is
moved in a counterclockwise direction to loosen
the hooks 83 and 89 just prior to moving the
cessible for turning. The turning of the screw
will bring the tails I46 and I41 together, or move
them apart to in turn widen or narrow the notch
M3, so that the same will be capable of fitting any
individual gun. This adjustability is increased by
the sliding movement of the members MI and I42
which may be effected by loosening the screw I313
and moving the same in the slot IE5. In the mod~
i?cation shown in Figs. 38 and 39, a similar notch
I5I is provided in the end of the member HT, and
an angle member I52 is provided underneath the
notch I5I. The member I52 is provided with a
portion I53 which underlies the notch I5I. The
angle member I52 is supported on the end of the
member I21 by a screw I54, ?tting into a slot I55.
.A bracket I58 is welded to the under side of the
member I21, as indicated at I51. The depending
portion of the bracket I56 is provided with a
threaded collar I58 which receives a wing screw
I59, provided with threads cooperating with
threads in the collar I58. It is evident, therefore,
that the member I52 may be moved forwardly by
turning the wing screw IE3, and will be held in
any position by tightening the nut i?il on the
I54.

The mount of the present invention also in
