Airgun with rotary actuator

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #5660159.

A multi-shot airgun employs a hand crank for cocking and firing of an air pump, and advancement of a multi-projectile magazine. Turning the crank causes the pump's plunger to be cycled back and forth to cock and discharge the pump. Turning the crank additionally actuates a projectile advancement mechanism. The advancement mechanism sequentially positions a plurality of projectiles in firing alignment with an air discharge port of the pump. Continuous rotation of the crank results in discharge of the projectiles in rapid succession. A high capacity magazine is provided in the form of a long, continuously looped ammunition belt to allow extended firing time between loadings.
