Abstract:

An automatic ammunition transfer device is disclosed. A reciprocating chamber block includes a stripper tab for moving ammunition rounds from the magazine into a round carrier mechanism. The round carrier mechanism includes spring load fingers for holding the round. The mechanism, with round therein, is moved from a stagging position to a chambering position for insertion of the round into the firing chamber by a four bar linkage arrangement. The four bar linkage is pivoted between the stagging and chambering positions in timed relation with the chamber block movement, as determined by a cam path located on the chamber block. It is the primary object of the invention to provide for an automatic ammunition loading system that allows a gun to be loaded and fired in any position without jamming.
