What is claimed is:
views, the cross bow of the present invention comprises
A spring operated cross bow comprising an elongated
an elongated frame 10 having a slot 12 extending inwardly
from one end thereof. A handle 14 has one end fixedly 45 frame having a slot extending inwardly from one end
thereof, a handle having one end .fixed to the other end
secured to the other end of the frame 10.
An elongated U-shaped bar element 16 is disposed
within the slot 12 with the bight 20 adjacent to and
spaced from the end of the slot 12 adjacent the handle
14. The bar element 16 has the free ends of its legs 18
connectedto the frame 1t) by a pivot pin 24 for swinging
movement of the bar element 16 from the position within
the frame 19 to a position swung outwardly from the
frame 10 as shown in FIGURE 2.
A coil spring 22 has one end connected by a pivot pin
26 to the legs 18 of the element 16 and has its other end
connected to adjacent ends of a pair of links 28 which
have their other ends connected, one each, to the adjacent
ends of a pair of levers 30 and 32 mounted intermediate
their ends upon a cross frame element A34 iixedly secured
to the adjacent end of the frame 10.
A bow string 36 extends between and has its ends con
nected to the other ends of the levers 30 and 32.
A rigid wire loop 38 is carried on an intermediate part
of the bow string 36 and is engageable with a block 40
mounted in the slot 12 adjacent the handle 14 and con«
nected to the frame 10 for pivotal movement from the
cocked position shown in FIGURE 6 to the released po-k
sition shown in FIGURE 7.
The block 40 is connected by a pivot pin 42 to the
frame 10 and a spring 44 normally urges the block 40
to the cocked position shown in FIGURE 6. '
A trigger 46 is connected by another pivot pin 48 to
of said frame, an elongated U-shaped bar element dis
posed within said slot with the bight adjacent to and
spaced from the end of the slot adjacent said handle and
having the free ends of the legs thereof connected to said
50 frame for pivotal movement from the position within said
frame to a position in which said element is swung out~
wardly of said frame, an elongated coil spring disposed
bet-Ween the legs of said element and having one end piv~
otally connected to said element at a point spaced from
55 the bight of said element, a pair of levers each pivotally
connected to said frame adjacent said one end, means
connecting one end of veach lever to the other end of
said spring, a bow string extending between and having
its ends secured to the other ends of said levers, and trig
60 ger means mounted on said frame and releasably engage
able with said bow string, said trigger means comprising
a block mounted on said frame for movement in clock-`
wise and counterclockwise directions, said bow string be-`
ing seatable in a notch in said block and urging said block
to the counterclockwise direction position, and an over
center trigger and link mechanism releasably holding said
block in the clockwise direction position.
