Abstract:

This patent discloses an ammunition feeder for delivering rounds of ammunition from a belt into the barrel of a gun, comprising a reciprocatory carrier having two separate pawls thereon. One the pawls acts as a main feeder for successively advancing individual rounds of ammunition from an entry station to an intermediate station during each upstroke of the carrier the other pawl acts as a restraining device to prevent excessive upward movement of the ammunition belt during periods of high carrier acceleration. The second pawl also acts as a feed pawl for the last round of ammunition on the belt when the main feed pawl then sees a vacant station. Author
